Photo by a befendo on Unsplash Whole 30 Day 26 for me. For Dr. Awesome, today was simultaneously Whole30 Day 19, and Day "Over." And now our Mama is all alone. I admit, I enabled my darling husband's farewell to this anti-inflammatory diet. I delivered him an inflammatory double quarter pounder with cheese, fries, and … Continue reading A Truly Happy Meal
Looking to do the Whole30 on a grocery budget? Don't. OK, we're at Day 25 here, and I am chomping at the bit to be done. Most of my family members, in fact, seemed surprised to learn recently that I wasn't already done. I'm still here, I've just been too busy to post anything lately. … Continue reading Binge on a Budget: The Whole30
Day 13. And to call it Friday the 13th is fitting, because this is the first day I just want to say THIS SUCKS! Well, maybe not entirely. But pretty much. So I haven't posted any recaps in the last week of my Whole30, and it's just because I've been too busy with momlife and … Continue reading Friday the (Whole30) 13th
Whole30 Day 6. This is the first day so far this week that I am scratching my head and asking myself, "What's for dinner?" Yes, usually Thursday is Leftover Night in our house, but since Doc has been out of town I pulled a single mom survival tip and made Tuesday Leftover Night instead. Which … Continue reading So, What’s for Dinner?
If it weren't for Tessamae's Creamy Ranch Dip, I would be as off the Whole30 wagon right now as my husband. Seriously. Dr. Awesome Inhaler of Cake and Pizza didn't last five minutes around the party food. I'm not sure what did it: the fact that he could see those cheesy, tempting pizzas, that fact … Continue reading Tessamae, You Saved My Day
For us, Day 2. For the Church at large, the Feast of St. Blaise. With all this bony meat on the Whole30, it's a good idea to get your throat blessed. So we skipped "Doughnut Sunday," and our children hate us. Seriously, I understand how people feel that a program like this crimps one's social … Continue reading Our Whole30 Day 2
DAY 1. As of two weeks ago I had planned to start my Whole30 today. Dr. Awesome is actually, finally, solidly onboard. But of course I assumed Pete's birthday pizza and cake binge would be behind us, leftovers safely sent packing with the party guests. Wrong. Of course, due to Pete's fever the night before, … Continue reading The Whole30: Not Just for Health Nuts Anymore
My baby Boo is now 5 years old. Can I just take a moment? Today my sister texted me a picture of me holding Pete the day he was born. How is that 5 years ago already? Not to be TMI here, but I can still FEEL that moment, if you unmedicated mamas know what … Continue reading Birthday Reminisce
