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.
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….
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
