It’s officially been one week of doing the Whole30! Only three more weeks to go. Not sure I feel too much of a difference yet. I have noticed my stomach is pretty flat when I wake up in the morning. And I’ve had a ton of energy, like on Friday when I was able to stay up all night without consuming my typical Red Bull. Can’t really say my fibro pain has gotten any better though. Or my allergies. But it will probably take longer than a week for me to figure that out.

Whole30 Day 7

Breakfast: Almonds and black coffee. Sorry for the lipstick stain. Was feeling feisty this morning and decided to bust out the red lip color.

Lunch: Leftover cauliflower rice from last night with scrambled eggs and a chopped tomato. So good. I will definitely be making the cauliflower again. Although right after I ate it last night I was hit with a really bad stomach ache and then again at lunch noticed it again. I wonder if I accidentally cross contaminated something or if it’s just bad to eat that much cauliflower in one sitting…

Snack #1: Today apparently was not a high energy day. Right around 3pm I started to crash hardcore. Wasn’t really in the mood for more black coffee so I decided to drink some of the Yogi “Energy” green tea I bought from Whole Foods. Since doing the Whole30, I now check ingredients religiously. And I was incredibly miffed to find the following sentence pictured above: “Each bag contains approximately 28mg of caffeine, as compared to approximately 90mg in 8oz of coffee.” Wait, what? It has less than half of the amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee? Energy my ass. Save your money. Don’t be fooled like I was.

Snack #2: OK I am officially addicted to green apples dipped in the almond butter from Trader Joe’s. I was practically giddy coming home knowing I had some in the fridge. Still not sure about the whole oil separation thing though. Eh.

What? That’s it? But where is your dinner Rachel, you ask? Well no thanks to that tea I had, I was so tired that I fell asleep before I had a chance to eat anything. Oops. Woke up on the couch at midnight confused and grumpy. Maybe it’s a good thing Jake isn’t here to have to deal with me.

So since I don’t have anything fun to show you, I decided to finally finish that blog post about my experience steaming artichokes for the first time. Hopefully you don’t kill your cookware like I did.
