Whole 30–Day 4

 

Well, I don’t know if anyone read this thing, but I am happy to say that today was a super fun and relaxed day with the kids.  They both slept in until 9:00, causing us to skip VBS, but giving us an opportunity to meet some friends at the pool.  We swam from 11:30-1:00 with myself actually swimming around for an hour of that time.  I am tired.  And I know that tomorrow I will be sore.  But that’s okay, because I have a two hour massage with Shannon (my 2nd favorite massage therapist) tomorrow morning while the kids are at VBS.  They are not sleeping in tomorrow.  LOL

Anyway, I finished off the egg and sausages (Eggs Nests).  I think it’s a good thing.  Pretty sure that they would have been bad tomorrow.  I’m going to make Eggplant Hole in the Head this evening to have tomorrow morning with the eggplant I bought 2 weeks ago from the Farmer’s Market.   My friend, and nutritional “specialist,” Kelly, of Nutty Alternatives,  would be proud.  I will substitute coconut oil for the butter since I don’t have any ghee on hand.  I don’t even know where to get ghee.  LOL

Anyway sleep, a breakfast of egg’s nest and fruit (I cannot remember what I ate), swimming, snack of grain free granola (I admit, I added some Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips), and watermelon.

We were invited over to a friend’s house afterwards so we stopped by Wendy’s.  I had a Chicken Berry Almond Salad (1/2 order) with like 1 tsp of the dressing (which was really, really sweet).  Probably not Whole 30, but close enough.

The kids played for a good 1 1/2 hours which I chatted with Jo, and then we headed home.

I made a whole chicken for dinner.   I used my Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker.  If you want one, contact Christina Erickson.  I also made Butternut Squash Fries.  I went to the Farmer’s Market a few weeks ago and bought two.  Why?  Because.  I had no idea what to do with them.  So tonight I decided to eat one.  And I made fries with them.  They look so yummy.  I’m waiting for Stephen to get home before I eat, but I think I may have to start without him.  I’m HUNGRY and dinner looks and smells so yummy.

Anyway, that’s my day.  I haven’t had many issues.  I am trying to eat more veggies.  It’s not because I don’t like them, but more because I don’t know how to prepare them.  I’m not sure if I like eggplant, but I will eat it if I make it because I hate to waste food. 

PS – I did not go to Chick Fil A today.  Not because I am boycotting them (if someone want to boycott someone, let them.  I’m not boycotting CFA, just like I’m not boycotting Starbucks or Home Depot.  But I didn’t think it was worth it to take my family somewhere and eat junk (which is not at all Whole 30) or wait in line for an hour just to get something to eat.  Really?  What is that teaching my children?  And that’s a rhetorical question.  Anyway, I don’t know how often we will dine there after reading this – Chick Fil A or Chemical Fil A.  YUCK
