Whole30ing – Day 8 (Monday)
Monday, August 11, 2014
Wow! Day 8! Week two…. I have gotten into a groove in what I can eat and what to have for meals. Issue is trying to get those foods…..
If there was ever a day I wanted to stress eat, it would be today. Right now in MA, NH and ME there is a major grocery store boycott involving 71 stores and of course there are 3 of them in my city of 60,000 and I shop at one of them. Not getting into details, it is now very, very hard to grocery shop. The other grocery chains are mobbed and it is insane. I would not go to one of the other grocery stores this past Saturday because it was so bad last Saturday. I actually went to Target to get any canned/paper goods etc and the farmer’s market for fruits and veggies. DH hits up the meat market on Saturdays for the weekend stuff so I increased his list with the stuff I would normally buy at the grocery store for the week.
Today I needed a few things for dinner because I changed the menu. Oh such a bad idea! Even on a Monday afternoon it was totally packed and not a pleasant experience. I walked through the bakery department and my eyes lit up at all the things I wanted to grab and chow down because I was so upset. This is the first time since starting Whole30 that I had to majorly restrain myself from filling my cart with very bad things. I didn’t, which is good, but there is much work to be done to get my mind away from food when I am upset. I just hope this boycott thing resolves itself soon.
What I ate on Day 8:
Turkey sausage, 2 oz (almost…one of my dogs asked for a piece and I obliged)
Ground beef, carrots, onions, swiss chard and diced tomatoes sauteed together
1 cup of grapes
Chicken cutlet (coated with egg and almond flour sauteed in olive oil)
Arugula salad with lemon juice and olive oil dressing
Brussel sprouts, roasted
1 c. blueberries
1 tablespoon almond butter
