Tomorrow I start Phase 2. Biggest awesome for me?
My beloved cardio is coming back! I can't wait!
So far, doing well. Still haven't started Whole30 - still researching, prepping. I ran out of half and half yesterday so I've decided to muddle through black coffee (with the occasional Vietnamese coffee or Starbucks coffee to get me through) beginning now. I've had a bit more wine than usual :-) I've been tapering my grains a lot.
I haven't decided where I'll end up when this Whole30 is over. I don't know that I can sustain the "Whole30" guidelines for the long term. I saw this image:
From THIS I feel Primal is do-able. I'd even get some white potatoes occasionally?? I don't know - I don't know if I will want to go back to it. I'm hoping not. I do think we'll do some hybrid of clean eating and primal. If my kiddos' allergies are gone at the end of this (during SPRING!!) we'll leave milk out. They have already told me they prefer almond milk, which is awesome. I will be attempting homemade almond milk coming up soon!
I do have a food porn blog post coming up - as I said, I've been easing out my carbs and dairy to focus more on full plates of meat and veggies. I have a co-op order coming in on Tuesday that will bulk up our veggies!! My order includes:
Baby Portabella Mushrooms
Tomatoes vine ripe
Lemons and Limes
Excited to try including some "new" things in our routines - cabbage being a big one! I am going to start making sure to have tons of sweet potatoes around to use after my cardio workouts and lifting sessions.
Any vegetables that aren't "common" that I should try that are favorites in your household (particularly with kiddos!!) ???
