Day 29 – “Normality”

Today was a pretty “normal” day for me. Yesterday, I had some quality time with my mom. It was a bit different since I’m on the Whole30. While we went and sat at a bar and my mom ordered a gin and tonic, I ordered a club soda with limes. We then went to The Trappe Door for dinner after meeting up with her husband. It was a bit difficult for me to find something I could eat on their menu but the waitress was super nice when answering my many questions. It’s always nice to come back to “normality” after a few days.

Day 29:

What went well?

MG– I ate a little earlier than yesterday, but guys, if you haven’t looked at yesterdays post – you should! Those meatballs and tzatziki sauce is amazing. I am excited to use the tzatziki as a salad dressing!

G– I enjoyed the variety in my breakfast with two different types of sausage and trying a new recipe for lunch instead of tuna fish.

What could have gone better?

MG– I need to work on eating lunch a lot earlier, it really messes with my appetite to wait until later but with work it’s just difficult to be on a schedule.

G– I honestly can’t think of anything, except that my shrimp curry dish ended up being spicy…still trying to figure that one out…

What will you do tomorrow?

MG– I’m going to work to eat earlier, even if that means I have to work and eat at the same time. I’m also excited for the meals we have planned and to see what G’s surprise dinner will be!

G– Surprise MG with a Valentine’s meal and enjoy the last day of our Whole30 together!

In the above photo of our shrimp curry, there’s one ingredient that you won’t be able to see. It’s our veggies – Zucchini Spirals! Cece’s Veggie Co. are convenient and make cooking a breeze. They have many different products and can be used in a variety of ways. I’ve used the Butternut Squash spirals for breakfast and they are delicious!
