My poor hubby was pretty crabby today - I think he might be in the hungover/angry phase.
I realize that I am possibly a little ahead of the game because I kicked my diet coke, artificial sweetener, most sugar and gluten habits long ago. I was off dairy for quite a while too, I'm hoping all that experience will keep this program going along smoothly.
I do however miss a drink! Tonight as I was cooking all I wanted was a glass of wine or perhaps a martini to look forward to. It wasn't a bad craving, more of, "gee it would be soooo nice right about now" but it's out of the question.
Anyway, the meals were tasty - breakfast was eggs, a sweet potato and some avocado.
For lunch I made egg salad that I wrapped in lettuce leaves and had with the butternut squash soup.
And for dinner…
I made the epic of all dinners.
One of our favorite things to do on a Saturday night is to catch up on our DVR and pick up Greek food. There is an awesome greek place by us but since we are Whole30'ing it I knew that I'd have to get creative so I decided to do Greek night.

Well. The good news, It came out very tasty! OPA!
|salad, cauliflower rice, baba ganoush, gyro meat and grape leaves|
The bad news? It took me hours. It was a very lofty goal and ambitious and now I'm exhausted. :-) I probably won't be doing Greek night again very soon - at least not all of it.
