Asparagus made my pee smell funky

Never had it before…

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!”

  1. I do love asparagus…weird scented urine be damned.
    And I’ve been on almond milk for…I don’t even know…it’s been a long time. Though, I also went through a phase of soy and coconut and cashew (oh, my!)…but I generally stick to almond. That being said, I also don’t drink it by itself, so I honestly have no idea what it tastes like on its own… 😀

  2. Fabulous post! Well done and keep it up.. I loved that less bloated feeling I got when I ate fewer carbs .. I didn’t cut them out altogether but wow, what a difference.

    But then I slipped back into bad habits (I’ve eaten the entire contents of a family pack of wotsits .. like 18 bags) 😂🙈

  3. Yeah but wotsits are mostly air so no problem at all. I was never a fan of Cheesy fingers so always preferred to simply pour wotsits straight into my mouth.
