Whole 30: Days 25-30

The homestretch. At this point it was definitely auto-pilot, though I really do encourage you to check out my non-food re-cap of these days to understand the context of these meals. It’s both not as hard as you think and not as easy as it might look. Don’t get me wrong, it’s far from impossible,Read more

Whole 30: Days 20-24

Day 20- Breakfast: salad shrimp sauteed in coconut oil with red, yellow and orange peppers and a couple eggs, topped with avocado and a side of leftover roasted butternut squash Lunch: (for me and two toddlers) ground turkey patties, egg salad, roasted yams (I ate much more that pictured here, FYI) Dinner: sliced ham, pepperoni,Read more

Whole 30: Days 16-19

My blurb for this post concerns the time spent doing this. Not the food part, or even the picture-taking part, but the compiling, delineating and posting part. No, I probably don’t have time for this. But it is a rather mindless task that I am finding somewhat enjoyable. I am especially intrigued by this recordRead more

Whole 30: Days 10-15

Day 10- Breakfast: Trader Joe’s ends and pieces bacon (yes back to bacon! missed it too much), cooked up with broccoli, zucchini, sweet potato, leftover hamburger patty and kale. Lunch: leftover hamburger patty, Boar’s Head pepperoni, avocado Snack: Maranatha Almond Butter straight outta the jar (thus begins my few day affair with nut butters) Dinner:Read more

Whole 30: Days 6-9

As I start the second week of my Whole30, I’d like to point out a few things. The first is that I end up eating on-the-go a LOT (as evidenced by the Rubbermaid) so strike that as an excuse. The second is that I eat (and re-purpose) a lot of leftovers. Some of that isRead more

Whole 30: Days 2-5

Oh boy, am I going to be obnoxious. Oh well, what irritates some delights others. I’m having fun taking pictures of my meals and may end up documenting this 30-day process much more intensely than I planned. Day 2- Breakfast: egg scramble with ground beef, green pepper, onion, cherry tomato, sauteed kale (coffee–Starbucks Via ItalianRead more

Busty: husband, partner, baby-daddy, friend.

There aren’t really words enough to articulate my thanks for Tony. As I type this he is out flushing the antifreeze from my undriveable-for-fear-of-that-clunking-noise car (reliable, what?). Oh, yeah, he also got up at 4am to go Black Friday shopping with me. Again. And he liked it 😉 Yesterday we hosted Thanksgiving dinner at ourRead more

A nice day.

Sometimes a nice day is just exactly what one needs. Not a fantastic day, or even a great one; these often are sandwiched by build-ups and let-downs (or in the mom’s case clean-up). Too much grandiose calls for exhaustion. And that pull-push pendulum of frenetic energy and depletion is exactly where we’ve been lately. TodayRead more
