Not much to report. I am still sticking with the Whole 30 plan religiously (it's day 6 now!) and I haven't been doing much but eating (the correct food, of course), shopping (for said food), and sleeping (I'm still really tired). Here's one of our dinners, above. And some more info:
- I found MyFitnessPal which is a free online service that allows you to track calories, carbs, fat, protein, you exercise, etc. I've only been using it for a day but it is really helpful to make sure I am getting enough calories, etc.
- I made kale chips! I looked at them at Whole Foods but they seemed expensive so I bought a big bundle of kale, cleaned it, dried it, sprinkled it with olive oil and a bit of salt, then baked it at 350 until it was greatly reduced in size and crunchy--really tasty!
- This is a pretty expensive way to eat (compared to the SAD--standard American diet). It takes more food to give me enough calories when I am not eating junk food and fast food. Plus I am buying a better quality food (salmon, olive oil, fresh greens every day, etc). I think the positive health affects are well worth it though.
- I'll be happy to get back to walking but I have been just too exhausted to do much more than walk to the car and back plus a little house work.
Now I'm off to prepare dinner...time consuming and requires washing a lot of dishes, but again, well worth it.
p.s. Hubby has been awesome--he has cooked the bulk of our meals every night even though he isn't into the program (but he did love the kale chips!).
