One word for these three days....Tired!!
So tired I couldn't even do a blog on any of the days so combining all into one. Friday was the worse. It didn't help that it was raining because that made me even more tired. I did manage to go to a function at my church that evening but the rest of the day I just wanted to lay down and sleep. Good thing work was quiet . My brain was not functioning.
Saturday and Sunday were a bit better but I spent each of the afternoons just laying on the couch with my dogs. Saturday night I went to bed at 8:30pm. My usual is 11:30pm. Yikes. Now I did read that this was a down side of grain elimination but I thought since I didn't go overboard daily on grains that I would be one of the ones not being so effected. Wrong on that count. First couple of days were fine and then wham-o....
One thing I have found is that I am not as hungry. My night time cravings except for Sunday night are non-existent. Happy with that as I am one of those night time snackers. Now if I do get hungry and it is not a meal time I grab a handful of raw almonds and that seems to do the trick. I also have been craving apples for some reason...maybe it is the fall weather.
What I ate:
Friday, Day 3
B: 2 eggs fried in bacon fat; 2 slices bacon; Coconut Chia Smoothie
L: Hamburger, diced tomatoes, onions with cilantro cauliflower rice
D: Beef stew
Sns: Coffee with heavy cream; carrots; cream cheese; apple with almond butter
Saturday, Day 4
B: 3 eggs scrambled with cheddar cheese and spinach
L: Beef stew
D: Pork Roast; ¼ mashed potatoes; carrots
Sns: 2 hardboiled eggs
Sunday, Day 5
B: 3 eggs fried in bacon fat; 2 slices bacon
L: WB deep dish pizza with onions & peppers
D: Sausage with onions and peppers sauteed in EVOO; Tomato, fresh mozzarella, basil salad with EVOO; ½ glass white wine; red wine
Sns: Prickly Pepper smoothie; apple with peanut butter
Sunday I tried out the deep dish pizza recipe in the WB 10 Day Detox book. Can't say I am a big fan. I am not a big pizza person to begin with. I like it but I only have it maybe once a month if that. Not one of my go to meals. However sometimes I do crave it and this weekend was one of those times. The WB crust is made with almond meal/flour, spices, shredded mozzarella and eggs. It came out great. But I put it on the same level with the cauliflower crust recipes....they are okay but I wouldn't be craving it anytime soon. I still am in search of finding a suitable replacement and will keep trying. I might try one of those english muffin grain free recipes and do pizza like that. I grew up on english muffin pizza. This is where I miss bread.
On to Day 6. Halfway done!
