Day 1 and day 2 brought with them two nasty headaches. Today I'm feeling fine, so I'm hoping I got over the hump quickly.
I realized there's one more awesome reason to love the 21DSD over the Whole30 (for me). Whole30 has a rule about not Paleo-fying junk foods. Even though I think there's a lot of grey area in that rule (fried chicken is still allowed?), I just don't like it. I get why they have that rule, I just think it's not as entirely necessary as people think.
In any case, I like that on the 21DSD I'm free to enjoy some coconut flour buns without guilt. It makes meals a little easier and certainly provides more variety - which is key for me to succeed. But the restriction on fruit makes it safer for me in the SWYPO department, because I'm not making banana-sweetened muffins or applesauce-sweetened breakfast cake.
Breakfast - Two eggs scrambled with sauteed onions, diced Italian sausage and cherry tomatoes.
Lunch - Two turkey sandwiches on the aforementioned buns with mustard and mayo. I filled my plate with cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber and raw sugar snap peas.
Supper - Plans fell by the wayside, and I ended up having one more turkey sandwich.
Snacks - A banana and some pecans.
Breakfast - Two eggs scrambled with sauteed onions, diced Italian sausage and cherry tomatoes. A cup of licorice root tea.
Lunch - Spaghetti squash with tomato & meat sauce. (That's what was supposed to be for supper last night.)
Supper - Fried chicken, roasted carrots and steamed green beans with ghee and salt. (Music Man was in a foul mood, so he only ate what was required of him. The two girls, however, both asked for seconds of chicken and beans!)
Snacks - A banana and a few macadamia nuts, then some pecans and a handful of cherry tomatoes.
I've been about 50% awesome (and 50% pitiful) at remembering to take all my supplements. Getting better! :)
