So it’s been about four days since I embarked on the Whole30 eating plan thingy and so far so good.
I am not weighing myself or taking any sort of measurements just concentrating on trying to eat properly and I will see what happens. Her are a few observations from my first few days.
Turns out my kids do not like asparagus, so not wanting to waste it I ate an entire bloody bundle which I had grilled with garlic and lemon. It was rather lovely and it had the side effect of making my pee smell most fragrant. I didn’t know about the effects but it is scientifically proven apparently. Who knew eh.
I am spending a lot of time cooking. Oh goodness like non stop. I made ratatouille last night because I accidentally ordered about a dozen courgettes and as delicious as it was the mere sight of it made the family gag so I ended up doing broccoli and fish for the boys with a dill sauce and later on my wife made herself something that was neither full of courgette of smelled like fish.
I do feel less bloated. I noticed that pretty quickly and I also think I have more energy. Maybe I am just imagining it but I have found myself more keen to do things I might not have previously.
Almond milk is unpleasant though I will persist and am slowly acquiring the taste for it. Slowly mind, it’s a work in progress. You might as well make spinach milk or sprouts milk if you’re going to make milk from weird stuff.
Family quote of the week so far: “You smell like eggs and garlic get away from me!”
