Woo hoo! I finally made it past day 1! I seriously cannot believe it took me 3 attempts to get there. Day 1 – Take 1 was thwarted by NYE leftovers at breakfast – corn chips and beetroot hummus (made with white beans as Mum was out of tahini). Day 1 – Take 2 was on track until my little sis, who is intolerant to almost everything and never eats out, said she really wanted to eat a meal that wasn’t made at home for once. I couldn’t bring myself to say ‘sorry lets eat at home as I need to pretend to be like you for 30 days’ so I picked the most paleo meals on the menu. My ‘cheat’ wasnt major – the grilled scallops for entrée had tiny globs of avocado mousse (dairy) on them and my main was a 250g Angus rump steak atop a few divine slivers of buttery shiitake mushroom. Yep, I could have not eaten both but .. I did. And a cheat is a cheat, which brings us to Day 1 – Take 3 … AND YESTERDAY I FINALLY STARTED THE JANUARY WHOLE30!
After dinner snack
9 cups of veg
Lesson of the day
I need to buy more indisputable brightly coloured non-starchy veg so I don’t have to question whether something is countable or not: tomatoes (gazpacho!), berries (me thinks frozen … will last longer and it’s HOT outside- the chilled grapefruit was excellent simply because it was COLD), capsicum. Oh, and of course Mark Sisson has an excellent list of brightly coloured fruit and veg … his blog always seems to come to my rescue. 🙂
