Whole30-Day 1

Are you feeling a bit sluggish? I sure am, I pretty much splurged from Halloween on and all those chocolate chips and snickerdoodles are finally calling in their cards. And there are so many cards to call. Time to cut that nonsense out!

For January I am doing a Whole30-thirty days of super clean eating, eliminating all those items that can cause issues: sugar, grains, legumes, dairy, and alcohol. Yes, its restrictive but its only for 30 days. I last did a Whole30 in 2012 and it greatly helped me get a hold of the sugar demons.

I started out the day with a breakfast salad: a big bowl of salad greens sprinkled with crumbled breakfast sausage and topped with two fried eggs.

Lunch was a bowl of chicken vegetable soup with homemade bone broth and the last of the CSA veggies I've been hoarding. I can't wait till the Winter Farmer's Market opens next month.

By afternoon I was starting to drag, I just wanted to curl up on the couch and sleep the rest of the day. For supper I went with easy: spaghetti with a meat sauce. Having jarred red sauce on hand makes this one of the easiest dishes ever. I used spaghetti squash for the noodles and rounded it out with a green salad.

I also had an orange and a satsuma for snacks. Day 1 is complete-hey, that was pretty easy.
