I’m in the midst of the 28-day Perricone Prescription meal plan and was getting bored with my meals, so last night, I roasted some onions and tomatoes and garlic to jazz up my salads. Note: Roasted garlic is delicious. It’s also pungent. I have garlic oozing out of my pores. At least I’m not single and hoping to attract eligible men. OH WAIT, I AM. Good work, self.
Anyway. That’s about as exciting as my foodie adventures have been lately. I’ll be starting my first Whole30 stint in two weeks, and I’m pretty excited about it. I just ordered Well Fed (the cookbook that sort of accompanies it) and a slow cooker, so I’m ready. I mean. I’ll be ready in two weeks.
Perricone’s meal plan is working, though, as usual. I’m currently comfortably wearing a pair of jeans I haven’t been able to wear since February, so I’ll call that progress. I’d be satisfied with just sticking to this way of eating, but I really just want to experience this Whole30 thing for myself – I want to know if it benefits me to cut out grains and legumes and dairy, and if I have any food intolerances. The only thing I’m not looking forward to is not having stevia in my coffee in the morning, but I think I’ll live. If I continue with paleo/primal, that will be added back in. This I already know.
Meanwhile, the full-time job I’ve been working at since mid-May is transitioning back to part-time, so it should be interesting to see how good I am about staying active while I’m not working. I’d be excited about it, except for the whole smaller paycheck thing. One month and I’m back to school!
