twenty two.

The weekends get so busy for us and it's hard for me to find the time to update the blog. I am currently on day 11 of the Whole30 and doing awesome, if I do say so myself. 
The last day I updated was on Friday, which would have been what I had eaten on the previous day, Thursday. It's now been a week!! We've eaten a lot of yummy food and also a lot of the same foods. I have found what I like to eat in the morning and kind of eat it every day or most days. For breakfast I eat a lot of scrambled eggs with mixed organic baby kale's and baby spinach. I usually have a little fruit with it or other vegetables and occasionally a monkey salad. 

I have also discovered that I really like sweet potatoes pan sauteed in coconut oil.

I am truly one of the luckiest women in the world. Last night, after dinner, W went to the grocery store for us. We still had food but nothing really for breakfast the next day. He's been trying to follow the Whole30 with me and even went so far to go upstairs and look up paleo information. He didn't know all the rules of the Whole30 but even still he only brought home 3 things I can't eat! He is such a magnificent husband. He does little things like that for me all the time. It makes every day special instead of him waiting around for an anniversary or holiday. I am a blessed woman.

The three things he bought that I cannot eat during the Whole30 are bacon, corn and honey.

Oh, my, how I wish I had an extra $100! This food processor is on sale from $180 to $99! 
We have a blender which hasn't been working very well lately. I do a lot of chopping by hand and it would be great to have a helper like this instead of the tiny hands that try to intercede and "help" most of the time. Don't get me wrong... it's nice that the girls want to help chop and cook and I know it's also very educational. However, sometimes a mom needs less hands in the kitchen when her sanity for the day is wavering. My birthday AND mother's day is coming up if anyone is feeling generous! In fact, I discovered when I made our Whole30 board that my last day of the Whole30 is on my birthday!!

I, The Mrs, have started healing my body with the Whole30. I've read the book It Starts With Food and was fascinated by all the "science-y" (as they call it) information it held. Doing a Whole30 is not about weight loss. It's not another diet trend... It IS about healing your body from the inside out. If you're interested in more information, please, pick up or order a copy of the book. They even have a discounted Kindle version, it's the one I read, which also makes it easy to bookmark and highlight sections. 
The basics are this:
