My Whole30 - Day 25 - 27

8/28/2012 *Sara-Marie* 1 Comments


Again, I haven't been as good about taking pictures of EVERYTHING, but I will share what I remember!

DAY 25: We decided to surprise Mark's little brother by driving to Williamsport to catch a couple games of the Little League World Series!


Since I knew it was going to be a long day, I had a hefty breakfast of a small baked sweet potato and 2 eggs. We also packed a cooler full of good snacks and not so good snacks for the boys!

While we were enjoying the games, I snacked on the following:

As the hours passed, our hunger grew and we decided to order food from the concession stands. I decided on a plain burger - no bun, no cheese. I thought I would be okay, but after I ate that burger I started to develop a horrible headache. Since the burgers were premade, I had to take the bun off myself and some of the bread was stuck to the burger. I tried to pull as much off as possible, but I may have consumed a tiny bit of bread. I may be over thinking things, but I think that tiny bit of bread caused my headache. I have suffered from migraines for a long time and I was even on prescription meds for prevention.

Once I started to eat healthier about 2 years ago, they subsided but I still experienced 2-3 a month. Prior to the Whole30, I had already started to cutout grains, but whenever I had a cheat meal (had pizza, ate an onion ring, etc) I developed a headache or even a migraine. Since I've started Whole30, I haven't had a headache except for after the concession stand burger. I will keep testing after the Whole30 is over and come to a conclusion hopefully soon. Not gonna lie, its going to stink if every time I treat myself to a piece of gluten I have to suffer the consequence of a headache.

Anyway, on our way home we were able to experience a beautiful sunset:

 Once we got home, Momma Pops quickly made another pizza and I made some tacos. Of course, I enjoyed mine in a red pepper shell:
 And we were off to bed! 

 DAY 26: After sleeping in forever, we had a quick breakfast (it was more like lunchtime by now) before having to lead the Pops family back to I-84 to start their journey back to MA. I used some left over taco meat and toppings over 1 fried egg:

It was yum.
After saying our goodbyes, shedding a few tears, and saying a few prayers for a safe return, Mark and I took a beautiful scenic ride through the Pocono Mountains and then made our way to Wegmans. We had to restock the fridge! 

By the time we got there, we were pretty hungry and its never a good idea to go grocery shopping on an empty stomach. Luckily, Wegmans has a cafe with yummy eats. I decided to have a "burrito" without the tortilla and with the gluten free cilantro chicken. 

Hit the spot.

 After using our life savings to buy groceries (it's still hard for me to spend so much more on food, but I know the quality is worth the premium), we finally got home around 6pm and caught up on some snuggle time.

 We weren't really hungry for dinner since we had our burritos, but I did enjoy a snack. I have been looking FOREVER for some jelly/fruit spread without any sugar. This one finally did the trick! It's sweetened with organic grape juice, which Whole9 says is okay!


 DAY 27 - Started my morning with a quick 25 minute workout in the comfort of my own home:

BREAKFAST:  I had been craving something different for breakfast so I decided to try a Pumpkin Tahini "porridge" bowl. IT WAS NASTY. So nasty that I threw it out. Then I thought, would fruit jam be good on eggs? I did a quick google search and apparently there is such a thing as a JELLY OMELET! Sweet! So I tried it out and it was goooood.

Mark says I should call it a "Jamlet" :)
 For LUNCH and DINNER, I enjoyed a sweet potato hash with ground beef.
I seasoned the beef as usual (salt, pepper, sofrito) and then added 1 tablespoon of Moroccan Road spice blend.

 It was amazing!!!!  Of course, I had to top off with some perfectly ripe avocado and fresh cilantro.

SNACK: In between lunch and dinner I had a little snack:

organic turkey breast + avocado slices = satisfying snack
