I'm starting a 40 day Lenten yoga challenge tomorrow. 40 straight days of yoga.

One would think Whole30 was enough to satisfy my propensity for self deprivation .....but No... Here I go again. I must be nuts.

Day 1 tomorrow.

Did y'all know that there is a Paleo Pizza Cookbook????? My H, the pizza addict, bought it and we made a crust tonight. We've been in search of a decent Paleo pizza crust since we started Paleo last year......we've had MANY flops.....but NOW.....

HALLELUIAH!!! SUCCESS!!!

It's called: 'The Paleo Pizza Cookbook' by M.T. Susan

Check it out!

Gleefan, welcome!!

Well I made it through days 10 and 11, apparently voted most likely days for people to cave. Wonder what my dreams will be like, lol!

Breakfast: the laaaast of the fritatta thankyoulord. Green smoothie: apple, orange, greens, a few almonds. I know, there's a debate, but I didn't have time to cook this morning!

Lunch: same old salad with turkey, roasted broccoli, balsamic and evoo. Still lovin' the lunch salads

Snack: larabar (I know, not preferred, but keeps me from fantasizing about froyo during the afternoon slump.

Dinner: pineapple coconut turkey meatballs with kimchi over cauliflower rice. Yum!! I had seen a recipe days ago and looked for it again but couldn't find, so shingled it and it was good. Looked kind of weird, but good .

Ghostly, you hooked on coffee yet?

Ip, how's your 30 going? You are my hero, going to the den of forbidden food and coming out unscathed...

I know I say this all the time Wehav but man your food sounds so good! Do you do all the cooking? No coffee for me yet, still in the planning phase.

What was the crust made out of LDT?

How was the cheesesteak Gilmer? I know LDT gasps at my lack of geographical food experiences, but until someone finds a random pizza place in a basement of a business in Chicago, and has true deep dish pizza...they have no right to talk. Hope the tests went well.

Welcome gleefan!

InP - I've heard of Taco Tuesday, but not a day for pancakes. Though I think everyday is good for pancakes.

I can not brag about my eating today.

Yes Ghostly...I think you need to get out more often. . ....and how does one go through life without COFFEE?? I just need you to answer that one question. I'm baffled.

Our pizza crust tonight was made out of: almond flour, arrowroot, baking powder, flaxseed meal, salt, pepper, water and olive oil. We rolled it out for a thin crust ( which is what we prefer ) and it was actually crispy. We will definitely tweak it the next time.

Then.... I made a Paleo chocolate mousse with avocado ......not sure yet whether we like it. It's kind of weird.

The cheesesteak was great, Ghostly! I would love to get my hands on a real Chicago deep dish pizza. We used to have a chain called Armand's here in N. VA that purported to be Chicago deep dish pizza--it was great!

Traveling home today, so had a slightly beefier breakfast today: English muffin, with butter and jam, a glass of OJ, and a banana. Oh, and 4 cups of coffee! I will exercise when I get home.

I have enjoyed my stay in the city. Being here has improved my impressions of people! Usually I'm like Scrooge or Greta Garbo--"I want to be alone"--but I have really enjoyed going to and from in the city. I surprise myself! I enjoy walking where I need to go!

Hey Gilmer....I love people so much. Even though I've sort of isolated myself since getting sober ( compared to my former life ), I still love talking to total strangers. One of my favorite things to do is to go someplace where people aren't very friendly and force them to talk or smile at me....Yes. I am "that person" in the grocery store . .....lots of people down south are like that....Good for you for embracing the town you were in. I told my H that the next place we live needs to be a "walking town". Driving is so totally overrated.

Today is "Day 1"............................... Of my Lenten yoga challenge. ( did I scare you?) funny how saying Day 1 is no longer daunting to me.

I'm eating fish today. That's all I got right now.

InPar and wehav.......how's W30 going for you?

It's not morning without my coffee.... (Or afternoon.... Or hockey practice... You get the picture!)

I only indulged in two Girl Scout Samoas during the day yesterday, and I didn't snack at night!!!

I felt a little deprived, but I had eaten plenty during the day, so it was more of the habit speaking than anything else.

Breakfast today is a green smoothie (kale, Swiss chard, cilantro, lemon), pizza frittata (made with coconut milk, potatoes, uncured pepperoni, and sun dried tomatoes), and 1/4 cup blueberries.

I packed chicken, raw cauliflower, cucumbers, and dried white mulberries for lunch.

Afternoon snack is an almond flour-based cinnamon roll recipe with eggs, honey, cinnamon, baking soda, and dates. It's good!

I'm never bored with Whole30/Paleo food menus. I love the creativity required with eating whole foods.

I just ordered some Zumba DVDs. The steps don't look too complex. I just realized, though, that maybe my coffee table is too huge--maybe I won't have room for the wildwoman activity! I'm sure I'll figure something out!

Ok whole30 gurus, I'm on day 12 and my pants are still a smidge tighter. Am I eating too much??? I don't feel like I am, but not trying to count calories so not sure.

Oh my gosh Gilmer WAY TO GO!!! ZUMBA BABYYYY!!!! Why don't you tip the coffee table on its side?
Ghostly what type of coffee machine are you going to get? My personal favourites are french press and italian stovetop. But I have now settled for an espresso machine and I drink two single shot americanos every morning, black. It's a good routine! Gilmer, how's that cutting down caffeine going, *AHEM*. Haha, just kidding, all in good time, all in good time.
Ghost it was Shrove Tuesday yesterday, or yes, pancake tuesday! Because it's the day before lent when all the catholics (or is it Christians?) give up lots of food for 40 days so they eat like pigs on Shrove Tuesday. Traditionally pancakes.
I am stuffing my face with my yam-kale-egg hash at the moment, with avocados on top. I know I've said this a million times, but you guys gotta try ume plum vinegar!!!! It improves everything you put it on, I'm like that commercial, "I put that $%# on everything". Use it instead of salt. YUM.
We have-nice job! Seriously impressive! It turns out that basically starving myself for a week was pretty counter-productive because when I got back I was like, FOOD FOOD FOOD. But I'm trying!!!!
Gleefan--I had to google Girl Scout Samoa--don't they sell the chocolate and vanilla sandwich cookies anymore!!??? Sad times if not, those were so good! The eternal question: "which do you prefer, chocolate or vanilla?"

InPar....Catholics/Christians....same diff.....we're all suppose to challenge ourselves during Lent....Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras is a pig out, drink a lot, act like fool, bacchanalia kind of day before the somberness and solemness of Lent kicks in. I already did whole30, which is plenty challenge enough.....so during Lent I'm adding TO ( instead of giving up )by doing 40 days of Yoga. Everyone down here in Mardi Gras-land is freaking out about giving up alcohol for 6 weeks.....Oh the "loopholes" they come up with to justify drinking during Lent. I use to do the exact same thing.

Wehav .....If you aren't seeing weight loss yet, maybe cut back on the calories a little? Are you exercising during the whole 30? I definitely saw weight loss by the 2nd week, even though I never weighed myself. Whole30 says that's counterproductive.....my H however, weighed every day.

Gilmer....Zumba girl.... Go for it! Like InPar said! move that darn coffee table.

Hey guys - do you have to be on whole30 to post here? I just looked it up and what I generally try to eat is pretty similar with a few differences though.

I have been trying to cut a few more things out of my diet so posting here would be a big motivator!

This morning I had egg whites and greens (arugula and kale), and NO beans, which is big for me bc I love beans with breakfast.

Hey Bumblebee...WELCOME!!...No you most definitely do not have to be Whole30 to post here. It's just our current "hot topic" it seems. I just finished it and there are others who have started it. Feel free to post away. Would love to here from another 'Heater' ( Healthy Eater).

Bumblebee, welcome!!!! Naw this thread is for folks who want to eat well and healthy as a way to support our sobriety.

I'm doing a whole30 because it seemed like a cool way to celebrate one year sober. Sorry if I'm thread-hogging by yapping on about it.

We are interested in all sorts of healthy eating perspectives!
