Eating Like a Cave Woman...

Sorry for the blog hiatus! If you wonder where I've been, well, it feels like I have been spending all my time cooking! Lewis and I recently wrapped up the Whole 30. I'll quantify that a little by calling it our slightly modified version of the Whole 30. Lewis told me he was in except he was not giving up his weekend bourbons and so I happily have had a few glasses of wine!




I am not an extreme person and diets or workouts or anything extreme usually turns me off, but after reading It Starts with Food. I was determined to give this a try! I was ready to quit 4 days in - but Lewis loves anything extreme so he kept us on track! 

If you don't know what the Whole 30 is basically, you eat no grains, legumes, sugar or dairy for 30 days. It's similar to the Paleo Diet  (hence the title of this post) which lots of people at Lew's Crossfit gym do, so I got some great recipes from them! 

I was inspired by Jenna from Small Fy blog, a great kids blog if you are into that kind of thing. Jenna designed my blog header a few years ago and I've loved following her as she and two friends launched Small Fry. A few other friends and blog friends had also done the whole 30, so there was lots of good inspiration out there! It challenged me because we love to eat out lunch - it's usually mine and Lewis' adult time together and is most often when I make unhealthy choices! Dinner was easy- we grill a lot anyway! 

I love to learn to cook new things and it's been fun experimenting with spaghetti squash, making homemade mayo, and making our own salad dressings! I have to say, after a week or so off the diet, there is a small part of me thinking I'd do it again, it really did make us feel great!

Glad yall liked it! I did too! I want to do it again, if I can ever get myself geared up again! It was crucial doing it with my spouse.

It is a "good against evil" book with the usual twists and turns and many feel good parts. I recommend this book for teens and adults alike. This is a riveting tale which ends with ... the knowledge a sequel is coming. I do so hope it is soon!
