Whole30: Day 23

After I'd already eater a bunch of my meat.

Breakfast: 3 scrambled eggs

Lunch: Leftover salad with salmon and steamed greenbeans
This did well as leftovers. We had some leftover basil lime mayo dressing from the Mahi Mahi that we used as a salad dressing and it was really good. I could eat that as salad dressing a lot. I think it might become a standard.

Supper: Meatloaf, steamed veggies, a mug of chicken broth, and a salad
I made out meatloaf into large meatballs and which turned out really well. We also scaled the recipe down by two thirds so that instead of using three pounds of meat we only used one. That was a much better amount. We don't need twelve servings of meatloaf over here.

The other thing that we made for supper was some thousand island salad dressing! I love love love creamy salad dressings so I was super happy to have this back. I think the recipe that we used worked out pretty well. We used more pickle relish than it called for and it was thick and chunky which is just how we like it.

Snack: 1 multi-seed cracker, 1 bite of genoa salami, three bites of baked sweet potato, two pieces of cinnamon almond bars (with a few modifications), and a short fat glass of grapefruit water kefir

It was another good day around here. I felt mostly fine. I had a hard time between meals. I got hungry between meals and was starving by the time I finally ate. I had a snack in the morning but it didn't really seem to help. I was hungry around 10:30am and by 12:20pm I was so hungry I wanted to punch something. And then in the afternoon I was super hungry again. So much so that we actually ate super at around 4:30/4:45 because I couldn't take it anymore. And then I had a decently sized snack before bed as you can see. I was just hungry all the time despite eating full meals and snacks. So I'm not sure what's up with that. Yet another thing to keep an eye on.

I think this may have been our last real day of Whole30. We went out and bought the multi-seed crackers and the salami because I just can't stand being hungry anymore. So now that we have the stuff, we're planning on packing it for snacks on Day 24 and then on Day 25 we're going to start in on the cheese. And oh my gosh, have I been craving cheese! I seriously can not wait. Wish us luck!

It was a cold rainy day around here. I spent most of it quietly settled in at home getting some reading done. And then after supper we went to a lecture at the university about the history of english before the King James bible. And they had a first edition King James bible there. And we got to touch it. It was amazing.

So far it's fascinating!
