A Whole Lotta 30 (Day 13 – Fin)

Our Whole30 experiment is done. Since we got to Day 13, my sister dubbed this period of time, “13 Going On 30.” We woke up today feeling the same as we did yesterday — that is, I wasn’t feeling any more energy than usual, and Sam was still feeling consistently stomach-awful. This morning we actually went to Whole Foods looking for coconut aminos (a soy … Continue reading A Whole Lotta 30 (Day 13 – Fin)

A Whole Lotta 30 (Day 12)

[EDIT: My upset is somewhat cancelled out because work called off sushi in favor of salads. LIFE, you guys!] Well, I’m past Days 10-11, which are officially “The Hardest Days,” when the most people tend to quit. So I guess we can pat ourselves on the backs. Days 12-15 are “Boundless energy! Now give me a damn Twinkie.” And while you are about to see … Continue reading A Whole Lotta 30 (Day 12)

A Whole Lotta 30 (Day 7)

First of all, I want to thank everybody who said something encouraging to me on Facebook or Instagram in response to my last post. It’s nice to know that there are other people out there who are (or have been) in the same boat! But also, you’re making me feel obligated to keep going. Jerks! 🙂 In case you don’t read any further, I must … Continue reading A Whole Lotta 30 (Day 7)

A Whole Lotta 30 (Day 5)

Day 4/5 are supposed to be “Kill ALL The Things.” Yesterday I was fine, but so far Day 5 has been more like… cry all the things? I could say it’s a “chicken or egg” situation, because I have a few things on my mind, but I don’t usually cry over ACTUAL chicken and eggs. Last night I had chicken for dinner. Today I brought … Continue reading A Whole Lotta 30 (Day 5)

A Whole Lotta 30 (Day 3)

This is just to say… Man, I love that William Carlos Williams poem. Anyway, here I am on Day 3, still doing okay. According to the Whole30 timeline, Day 2/3 are known as “The Hangover,” but I feel just about the same as usual. (Day 4/5 is called “Kill ALL The Things,” which is a little frightening… I hope to kill NO things.) Yesterday I … Continue reading A Whole Lotta 30 (Day 3)

A Whole Lotta 30

This isn’t really a food blog anymore, but it isn’t NOT a food blog, y’know? Anyway, it’s been kind of a stressful summer (we moved, career angst, Trump’s America, etc.), and somewhere along the line — July, maybe? — we decided that we should try to reset our stressed-out-people eating habits by doing the Whole 30. But because we had my birthday coming, and in-law … Continue reading A Whole Lotta 30
