ldt, your pizza sounds awesome!! asparagus on a pizza, yummm!

i was hoping it would seem less labor intensive than cauliflower... but it doesn't. i bet it doesn't stink up the house as bad though.

Ghostly, the first day I tried the kale smoothie it was awful-ish--I was very grateful that it had a banana aftertaste. Every time since then the taste has been the same, but I've minded it much less. I even bought kale powder for myself to make my own at home! (Though I guess I should have just gone for the real thing).

Yeah, wehav sort of labor intensive....especially how my H was going about it...... He had dough everywhere. It was a hoot.

I do have a flat bread recipe that we once used for pizza, but it wasn't as crispy as the other one. But it was UBER easy.

Cashews and chocolate chips.....nocturnal foraging at it's finest . What's is my problem lately? I think I'm missing something from my diet because these nighttime cravings are getting ridiculous. Must investigate. I eat very well during the day...almost whole30 actually most days..... ( sigh ).

Green smoothie for breakfast.....another garbage smoothie. No plan yet for the rest of the day.

Hi, Heaters)

I popped in to say that I am not AWOL, just very sick - throat is so sore and swollen I can not even eat, just drink a lot (I mean tea and milk))). Today is somewhat better but still in bed.

See you all )

Hey, the universe lost a post I wrote at lunch!! Darned reception issues...

Gilmer, keep it up with the veggies girl, your body will thank you!

Ldt, the whole9 folks contend that if we don't do a decent breakfast, including protein (hence all the eggs we ate on whole30), our bodies spend the rest of the day playing catch up on nutrients. They also mentioned something about hormone balance. If we don't eat early in the day, within an hour of waking, we kind of mess with our satiety hormones and can get the munchies at night just like folks enslaved by the sugar dragon. I find it a challenge to get breakfast within an hour of waking, but tend to feel better at the end of the evening if I do manage to eat early.

That exactly explains why I have Felt like rubbish for days, Wehav ...... I am SOOO exhausted today, I have felt like I'm walking through mud And I can't focus....... I have not been eating breakfast lately .... Only green smoothies ..... I do eat eventually, but it's like 4-5 hours after getting up.... But it's just not working for me . The Whole30 peeps are right (dammit ). Tomorrow , protein with my smoothie . Thanks for the timely reminder, We.

Back when I figure out what's for dinner .

Yeah it really stuck with me when I read that. For years I've believed myself to be a person who just isn't very hungry in the morning. I make myself eat breakfast and the day goes better. I'm even changing a little, some days I wake up hungry.

Hope it helps you, heater buddy!!

Bacon.... I raced home before rehearsal and ate a bacon, lettuce and tomato salad.... Slammed a cup of java down my throat , squeezed in half a bottle of eye drops in my eyes (just kidding about the half bottle ), took some aspirin....and I'm ready to go rehearse. (Whew)....... Back later.

Good luck rehearsing!!

Today's menu was allllright... Nothing to write home about.
Breakfast: two scrambled eggs with salsa and avo. That avo finally ripened up. My group showed up a HALF HOUR early, so my coworkers let them in so I could wolf it down. I have the best staff ever. And that would be why I always set up the day before...
Lunch: you guessed it: salad. Spinach, arugula, turkey, roasted broccoli, the rest of the avo, olive oil and lots of balsamic. Still not tired of that lunch!
Dinner: leftover butter chicken with paleo naan. Made a new batch and it was better, but still not stellar. She did warn that it ain't real naan... No cauliflower rice. It was overkill last night.

Now I need to digest for a while so I can do some power yoga. I just hope it doesn't amp me up all night.

Have a good night heaters!

Rehearsal was ok...not as good as last night....fatigue and brain fog....it will be better Thursday.

I've already got my green smoothie for tomorrow morning built and ready to rock and roll: Kale, cucumber, papaya..... I also plan to force myself to eat some protein, even if I'm not hungry ( which I usually am not ). Did you know papya is a super food?

Yoga is tomorrow...Wristless Wednesday ....*****!! Time for some Sleepy Time/Yogi bedtime Tea, some Melatonin and binaural beats.... Nite heaters!

I am so glad I found this thread. All I have to do for new ideas is to come here. Tired of the same things every week for the last 4. Hit the scale yesterday morning and lost 10 lbs in the last month. A little too eager for it to be coming off faster. Reminding myself this is a lifestyle change as much as sobriety. Slow and steady wins the race! I know I sure feel a hell of a lot better and my clothes are telling me there are great changes.

Wow, lady blue!!!!!

Super congrats on finishing your whole30!!! That's an achievement you can always keep with you.

Ten pounds is amazing!! And yeah while that's an awesome bonus, it's not supposed to be why we did the whole30, riiiight? ten pounds in a month is just about the limit for safe and sustainable weightless. You did it girl. And your body is happier in other ways too I bet.

Curious, what other benefits have you noticed? Better sleep? Few we allergies? Less joint pain?

LadyBlue I think 10 pounds in a month is awesome! Wehav is right...perfect for sustainability. Whole30/Paleo isn't all about weight loss ( as you know ), but that IS a side effect .....However, I've read where terribly underweight people actually gain weight on Paleo. It's an eating style that gets you to your "set point "... Your desired perfect weight for you. I did Whole30 for inflammation. I was not overweight, so I didn't loose a huge amount...just enough to slide back into skinny jeans....however, my H lost about 20-25 pounds ( in a period that also included Paleo going into W30) because he had it to lose. His doctor was shocked at how great his bloodwork was at his appointment. I could go on and on about Paleo ( can you tell? ). I will be so sad if and when someone tries to prove that this is not a healthy eating style......until then, I'm eating Paleo/Primal ( cause I just have to have a little cheese every now and then).,

Breakfast: green smoothie, deer sausage
Lunch: Salad...maybe some soup too.
Dinner: Stuffed bell peppers ....stuffing them with ground meat mixed with shredded cauliflower, onions, chopped mushrooms, and pouring the tomato sauce I made yesterday over them.....I'll let those simmer in the crockpot.

It's Wristless Wednesday in Yoga ......which always means killer core day.

Happy Wednesday, Heaters,

Ooooh that sounds good ldt!! So stupid question, do you put all that in the crockpot raw? And for how long? Is that something I could do and stick it on low for 9-10 hours while I go to work?
