Whole30ing – Day 3 (Wednesday)

Thursday, August 07, 2014

I was catching up on emails the other day and I saw a blog with all types of deviled eggs. I love deviled eggs so I decided I would cook up a batch of eggs and have them on hand to have as part of a meal or even a snack. With a homemade Paleo mayo and other Paleo approved toppings, I knew I could make something tasty.

One issue I always seem to have when making hard boiled eggs is getting the shells to come off without taking half the egg with it. emoticon I have read numerous blogs on the best way to make the perfect hard boiled egg and having the shell just magically come off easily. Use old eggs. Use new eggs. Put in hot water. Put in ice baths. Poke the shells before boiling. Do this. Do that. Well I have tried most of these ways and today was no different. Again I tried a way that someone said was guaranteed to turn out the perfect hard boiled egg. And once again….FAIL. Out of 8 eggs, only two looked like an egg after I peeled it. Waving the white flag. Sigh…. emoticon

On the Whole30.com website they have a timeline on how you may feel day by day when you are going through this. Days 2 and 3 they say you may be tired and moody/cranky. Can’t say that is how I feel though. I overall feel good. Maybe a slight headache but that is about it. I think I struggle more with the mental aspect of this then I do how I feel physically. Having to cut out some of the things you like to have everyday….fat free half and half and reduced fat chunky Skippy peanut butter especially….mentally affects me. Right now that is what I miss most. In a couple of days I will be missing the weekend pasta. After that, another food item. Hmmm I guess I can write a Whole30 timeline based not on physical changes but the food items I miss and on what day I start to miss them. LOL

What I ate on Day 3

2 Eggs
Kahlua pig, 2 oz (recipe from Nom Nom Paleo)

Big salad – mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, green olives and sliced peperoncini with olive oil and balsamic vinegar
2 chicken drumsticks (appr 4 oz meat) with Magic Mushroom powder (recipe from Nom Nom Paleo)

Paleo beef brisket (recipe from “The 30 Day Guide to Paleo Cooking”)
Roasted carrots with olive oil

¼ cup raw cashews (felt a bit snacky at 9pmish) emoticon

    "I guess I can write a Whole30 timeline based not on physical changes but the food items I miss and on what day I start to miss them."

    Kiddo, that's a fantastic idea. Talk about seeing patterns in your life! I think you will amaze yourself when you discover your personal food trends...

    Plus, I suspect you're going to reach the point, by the end of your Whole30 experience, that some of your cravings dissipate, or at least lessen to the extent that you can forego such foods.

    Keep on keeping on, J. You've truly, really, absolutely, GOT THIS!

    Eggs peeling properly seems like a randomly elusive anomaly in our household as well. We have done all of the above mentioned and sometimes if the HB egg gods are kind the shells just pop off. But mostly they are stubborn especially if we are peeling in quantity...as in for the purpose of making deviled eggs. deviled eggs are so tedious and they disappear so quickly.

    Another good day! I'm taking notes! Bought a cauliflower today for my cauliflower rice. Need to check out nom nom.

    I usually put the eggs in the water and bring to a boil then turn off the pot and let them sit for 20 minutes or so. Mostly they peel easily; I always thought it was because my eggs usually are old. (We don't eat them often but I have a feeling that's going to change on Whole30!

    Your doing great! Sorry about your eggs. What works for me is once the water starts boiling, I let them boil for 10 minutes and then take them out. They peel great every time. Good Luck!

    I am thinking about making deviled eggs! Have you tried making zucchini noodles yet? Might help with pasta craving...

    We can do this!! emoticon
