Day 13: Sept 15, 2013
Sunday was a rainy dreary day. I woke up around 9 and made my typical poached eggs for breakfast, and indulged in a couple episodes of Person of Interest, and then all of a sudden it was almost noon and time for the Bears game. Again, I am pretty sure I’m fat-adapted because I didn’t even think about lunch until after 1 pm; this is so incredibly different than before the Whole60!
The Bears managed to pull it out in the last 10 seconds, which was great, but the whole game was a wild ride. I know that Jay Cutler is a) the best quarterback the bears have had in forever and b) a second half QB, but I really wish he’d become a full game QB so we can avoid these shenanigans going forward.
After the game, I finally found my motivation, and got the dishes cleaned and put away. Then I went to work and made Chicken “Fried Rice”, using cauliflower rice as a rice substitute. I love this recipe, but humanely raised pork is a pain to find, so I substitute chicken instead – it tastes just as good.
Then, since I had the food processor out, I riced the rest of the cauliflower, and diced several onions to use later in the week. I hate chopping onions, because I cry like a baby. So, I decided to be creative, and purchase a pair of swimming goggles, which i keep in my kitchen drawer and wear them while chopping onions. I may look ridiculous, but no more tears!
Whole30 timeline: I realized later in the evening, that I haven’t had cravings for anything since early afternoon Friday! Huzzah!
