DAY SIXTEEN (Tuesday)
Tuesday was a blur. I have been shaking a head cold for what feels like weeks. I know it’s not weeks, but it feels like it.
As far as food, I’m sure I had some eggs and kale and something else not so delicious. I had an hour bike and swim for workout.
Oh, the Expert made tandoori chicken and cabbage. The cabbage I loved. I’m still having a hard time eating chicken right now. I don’t know WTH is going on.
DAY SEVENTEEN (Wednesday)
The head cold of the century is still getting me down.
Also, I feel kind of like a head case myself. I’m learning weird things about myself in the absence of processed food, sugar, Mexican food, pizza and wine.
I need therapy.
Oh! I do have to jump up and down about this recipe: Zoodles & Sauce!
What are Zoodles? Well, it’s actually zucchini! Nom Nom Paleo has a post about it here.
Get it? Noodles + zucchini = ZOODLES!
And wowzers, using this slicer, it was so easy to slice six zucchini into “noodles.” Steamed in microwave for 3 minutes with lid on casserole dish.
Whipped up a grass-fed beef sauce with Mario’s help, (Whole30 compliant!)… plus a can of fire roasted organic tomatoes and a sliced red pepper and onion….
OMGood. So good.
I have really been missing food like this.
Totally hit the spot, and I didn’t even miss the pasta. Seriously.
