So I've just finished day two of Whole14maybe30. And really, all things considered, it's been a pretty good start.
After a pretty intense Excel session, I figured out literally everything I would put in my body for the next two weeks.
And the results have all been good so far, amazingly enough.
I think one reason I had such a rough start the last time I tried to do Whole30 back in October was that I didn't plan well.
I was a little cocky, and thought I could sort of wing it. And that lead to a breakdown in the middle of a grocery store.
So yeah, I went into it this time with all the planning and prep work.
Which lead to some pretty colorful shopping cart action.
I've made a pretty gross looking but pretty tasty smoothie.
I learned about a new fruit and how to cut it and fix it.
Yep, that's mango, and yep, I've never actually bought a mango before this week.
But I've already used it in three different recipes and loved each one, so I guess I'm going to be buying more mangos in the not so distant future.
I've done some experimenting in the kitchen and taken a recipe and made it my own with a few interesting tricks. See exhibit A where I made my own take on Mango Salsa.
And, most importantly, I've learned to meal prep the heck out of Whole30.
So it's only day two and I really want some Chick-Fil-A.
Especially after I learned that it was Dress Up Like A Cow And Get Free Food Day.
Chick-Fil-A, cookies, and cheese, I'm coming for you.
In 14 to 30 days.
