I cannot believe this is still happening! Anyone tired of this dang posts? Don’t answer that. I’m tired of myself at this point. Another hurdle yesterday! I had a rare out-of-town gig with my lovely trio (shout-out to the amazing director, who works hard to get us gigs in this difficult market called the Midwest!) We always stop after the performance and get something really … Continue reading Day 18 & 19.
It is so gloomy here! And cold and miserable. It’s really not helping my situation, as I trudge (there’s that word again) through the last weeks of this reset. Okay, this is a 21-Day Reset. So this is technically and officially over in 5 days. But I really want to try and go the whole 30 days. I guess I’ll just see what happens, since … Continue reading Day 17.
This post is coming to you late because I‘m really behind on life. And stressed, and unfocused. Praying this will pass! Tuesday night‘s din din was MY kind of food ~ pasta!!! Only, made with Whole 30 compliant ingredients ~ YAHOO! I wanted to make Lidia’s famous Pasta Trio, but I figured only two kinds of “pasta” would do. Here’s what we ate: Sweet Potato … Continue reading Whole 30 Italian Night.
Trudging through these days. That‘s a word, right? Trudging? I am really struggling this week. My beloved coffee has been ripped away from me. I‘m trying to heal my digestion and this is the next step, along with all the other things I‘ve eliminated. This is rough. And so not fair. And what‘s even funnier is ~ it really doesn‘t have anything to do with … Continue reading Day 15 & 16.
I feel like this is a milestone day! Two weeks we’ve been on this plan, and we haven’t slipped up once! I’m SHOCKED. No one is more shocked than I am. We have passed a few difficult tests, kind of like the Fire Swamp in The Princess Bride? Except our Rodents of Unusual Size are cocktail parties and Wednesday night church choir wine breaks. HA! … Continue reading Day 14!!!
Okay, it’s getting a little too meaty around here. I never thought I’d eat so much meat. But I’m just trying to stay in this reset. Maybe tomorrow I’ll try to give it a rest with the meat. In the meantime, here’s a mouth-watering picture of our dinner ~ pork chops and applesauce! (And waaay too little spinach, but that’s all we had!) I had … Continue reading Pork Chops & Applesauce.
It’s our last Sunday night before our rehearsals begin again. And then we won’t have a single free Sunday evening until the middle of May. So we wanted to celebrate. And also celebrate making it through another weekend on the Whole 30!!!! Yahoo! Here’s what we made tonight: GRILLED STEAK W/CARAMELIZED MUSHROOMS AND ONIONS You know, a really nice steak can be split in half … Continue reading Surf & Turf.
Day 12 is coming to a close. 12 days? That’s almost two weeks! I’m already plotting and scheming ~ “What am I going to eat when I’m off of this plan? Is everything going to fall apart? I don’t want to lose this feeling!” I’m sitting in the lobby of the Westin Crown Center, in Kansas City, which is where we have our gym. The … Continue reading Day 12.

You could even add black peppercorns, or black tea leaves. Steep the aromatics … Continue reading Chai Spiced Hot Apple Cider.
This is a Nigella Lawson recipe… By the way, isn’t she the most beautiful woman you’ve ever seen? She is most definitely the goal ~ fun, classy, real, not a toothpick, glamorous as all get-out. This is a great sub for pizza, when you’re ready to reach for the phone a dial up your local pizzeria for a delivery. The Hub says you can’t really … Continue reading Meatzza.
