Day 1 - Here We Go

Alright people. Day 1 of 60. {To be honest, it's closer to day 7 of 67 because I started my clean eating last week- no reason to go completely off the rails just because the challenge hadn't started yet. According to the Whole 30 timeline, I should be in the 'I just wanna take a nap' stage, but I really never hit the 'hangover' or the 'kill all the things' stages, so either I really got off easy or the worst is still to come. Either way, considering it is Sunday, a nap is probably in my future later this afternoon :-) }

Today was a lazy, sleep-in Sunday. After a late breakfast of coffee with homemade almond milk and eggs with sausage, I started on my food prep.

Chopped and roasted the brussels sprouts for lunch. Got the breakfast sausage seasoned and browned. Roasted some raw almonds and cashews for snacks throughout the week.  Baked off the sweet potato hash. And last but not least, I have the beef for BBQ Beef "Nachos" in the crock pot for dinner tonight. Not a bad morning.

Now I'm relaxing, watching some football while noshing on some spaghetti squash "pasta" with meat sauce. Oh, and some lovely guava kombucha. {I think I'm in love with this stuff....}

**Update** Oddly enough, I didn't take a nap at all on Day 1. Though I was marathoning Downton Abbey and who has time to take a nap when the lives of the Crawleys are so riveting? I also discovered I have a wicked post-dinner sweet tooth. After having a plate full of BBQ beef and sweet potatoes, I still found myself going to the kitchen for a banana and some dates. I'm definitely going to have to curb that.


  1. Can I have your life? Thanks much,

  2. Haha. I think you'd be rather bored with my life. Cooking and napping aren't exactly exciting. And typically my day goes work -> gym -> eat -> sleep and repeat. Nothing too earth-shattering :-)
