I think I’m becoming a salad-holic. I’ve had 2 salads a day for the past couple of days (3 yesterday, if you include the mound of arugla that came with my omelet at breakfast). I mean, I’ve always like salads a lot. But now I’m kind of addicted to them. Yeah, that sounds nuts. But there are just so many options, and I don’t feel run-down and tired after eating them!
And speaking of home, I’m on a train on my way back to NYC now. And I just realized that 48 hours from now will be the end of my Whole30. WOW! And the best thing is that I’m not really looking to “celebrate” finishing with food or drink. (Now, that’s not to say I won’t have a drink this weekend, for the record….) I think that I am going to stick with eating this “cleaner” way most of the time. I’m going to try adding back in foods to see if there is anything that I react really negatively to, but for me if I could add back in a bit of cheese/full-fat cream for special occasions and a drink or two once a week or so, I really think I’d be fine. And I’m planning to start doing some Whole15s every month or so, when my travel and work life permit it. Maybe every quarter I’ll do a Whole15, just to jump start things again.
Breakfast (Kramer’s): Spinach and mushroom omelet, berries and fruit, 2 double espressos (YIKES!)
Lunch (DSG Deli): Cobb salad with corned beef, avocado, and veggies (no cheese), olive oil and vinegar; double espresso
