Tuesday marked the second week of the Whole30. Week two was a little ‘weird’ for lack of a better word.
I think I was fighting something because for 3 days any time I ate anything or drank a green smoothie, my stomach would turn, making rumbling noises that well you know…
During those days, I mainly consumed chicken soup (homemade of course) and my green smoothie.
Thankfully I am all better.
This week I didn’t try anything new or have any challenges besides feeling ill. The family did have pizza this week while we were out, but Don was kind enough to grill me a steak when we got home. I consumed it with a big salad. Thankfully I remembered to take some nuts with me to snack on while we were in town.
We visited the coffee/book shop while out and I just had a black coffee. I did find some good books, always a plus. 😉
Still no changes. Nothing out of the ordinary. If I breathe deeply, I might get a whiff of a scent, but smells have always come and gone these past two years.
A few days ago while at Kroger, I met a like-minded older lady. She was there buying her produce for a green smoothie recipe which she was more than happy to share with me. She encouraged me to get my family on them and told them to listen to me. 🙂 She told us of her husband who had prostate issues, I am not sure if it was cancer, but he couldn’t walk without a cane. After juicing, smoothies and I am sure better food choices, he no longer needs his cane and is well.
Stories like that are encouraging. Even though my new eating habits might not clear up my sinus issue, I am positive it is benefiting me in other areas.
Well, that is it, nothing profound. I’ll see you in a few days with a new freebie. It has been a while since I shared.
These are the two books my sister lent me to read about the Whole30 diet. I couldn’t find her category for when she did the Whole30, so I linked to the nearest I could find. 🙂
