Weekly Smile – (TTC #748 & Blogtober #11)
It is day 11 of the Whole30 change of diet. That means we are beyond a third of the way through the no alcohol, (aka red wine) restrictions. Only 19 days left to go, and I’m counting. It is the wine in particular, I miss; fizzy water just does not proffer the same effect. 😇
I thought, not eating bread would be a bit of an issue, as it is so easy just to have a slice of toast for breakfast and a cheese and ham sandwich for lunch. However, a banana for breakfast is as easy and, of course, so much healthier. Moreover, a quality egg and avocado salad or a chicken and cucumber, cabbage wrap actually sounds much more interesting, doesn’t it? 😌
Last night, we had potato and kale hash with baked eggs – I have to say it was delish! There has been a couple of meals that have been a tad over nutty. We had piece of pear pie for pudding one night; the pastry was made from coconut flour, it was as dry as a desert – forgive the pun! 😂
It took me the best part of a week to adjust my insulin intake for the change of diet, otherwise, I haven’t noticed yet much difference; but Boyfriend has lost a whole dress size and has swiped 40 points off his blood pressure. A life lesson for us both is to take better care of what we gobble down every day, once November 1st arrives. Health is our most valuable asset after all. 😊
