No sugars or grains. No dairy or legumes. Yep, I’m doing the Whole30 for the next 30 days. Here’s how it’s going:
Weekends on the Whole30 can be tough, especially on Friday nights, when you just want to order a pizza and watch Hannibal, as God intended. Before I started this, I was setting aside a cheat day (usually Friday or Saturday) for things like hot chicken, biscuits, cheeseburgers and (small) chocolate malts, so when the weekend rolls around, my Inner Child can be a real turd.
She doesn’t wannnnnt to sauté vegetables for breakfast again. She doesn’t wannnnnt another salad. Or steamed anything. Or another freaking sweet potato.
So I finally got the bright idea to plan ahead for these weekends and make sure I’m having something that feels good n’ dirty. Like steak. We’ve never been weekly steak people (too pricey), but with the money we’re saving by not getting weekend takeout (or buying any of the Forbidden Foods), why not? Cookouts are fun.
