What I Ate Wednesday – The Sick Edition

For everyone who’s been sick on Whole 30, this Wednesday is for you! Thankfully, it’s not a stomach thing, only a head cold, but it’s thrown me for a loop and the VERY LAST THING I want to do today is eat. Add PMS to the mix and I’m a lovely bunch of fun today! Staying compliant while sick can be tough. Today, I just need to get through the day and do what I can. Here’s what I ate:

BREAKFAST: I woke up today bleary eyed and not able to breathe through my nose. After taking stock of myself in the mirror and scaring myself a bit, I decided that it was time to get dressed and tackle the day.


I normally have a pretty respectable breakfast with three eggs, veggies, and a sausage link. Today, I only managed to get down two with some onions and mushrooms and then ended up putting way too many onions in that made my mushroom to onion ratio very imbalanced. I added a bit of Saucy Lips’ Zesty Cilantro sauce on my eggs, some grapes, and called it done!

After daycare drop off, I got an iced coffee and went to the chiropractor. I told her about my stuffy nose and whatever magic she did had it running rivers afterwards. I love my chiropractor! When I got home, I put some Vanilla Lemon Nutpods in my coffee and started work. I know vanilla lemon anything in your coffee may not sound good but, holy cow, it works. I love it even more than my beloved hazelnut.

LUNCH: Is it that time again? By noon, I’m quite hungry because of my smaller than usual breakfast. Normally, I only get hungry about 1pm but today it was much earlier. My mother in law is here so I made us a quick stir-fry for lunch—this was a total grab and go using Veggie Noodles Co.’s zucchini noodles, some frozen peppers from Trader Joe’s, and sliced up some leftover pork chops from last night. To season it, I mixed in some The New Primal Classic Marinade. I had some pecans on the side. Done and done!

SUPPER: My husband makes some steak on the grill tonight. Hurray! I broke out the Veggie Noodles Co. broccoli rice and pan fried and then proceeded to do a potato experiment on my husband.

I made mashed potatoes with ghee, Nutpods, garlic powder, and salt and divided them up into two bowls. I put a container of butter next to one. He claims he doesn’t like ghee but does he really? With a heaping scoop of potatoes on his plate, he dug in but said they didn’t taste like potatoes and must be some sort of secret ingredient. He keep eating them and declared that ‘It’s pretty good, whatever it is!’ My work here is done!

Oh, and I had a plated fat….more Saucy Lips’ Zestry Cilantro and a few pecans.

What did you eat today? Or maybe I should ask, who did you experiment on today?
