OK enough bitching. Whole 30 challenge still going strong. Something I miss, sugar free gum! I realize that I chew a lot of gum. Just to freshen my breath between meals. But sugar and sugar substitues free means no gum for me. I know that's a small amount but I'm really trying to do this thing as much to the letter as I can.
Breakfast was Avocado "toad in a hole". It was delicious! The other half of that avocado is in the fridge and I will be having that again tomorrow. Basically you just slice an avocado and fry in some olive oil, add an egg in the middle and cook. I flipped it once and covered it because I don't like a runny yolk. Quick and easy. Had it with some salsa and a mini turkey meatloaf that I had made ahead and froze.

Lunch was a salad with grilled chicken, nothing special. I'm going to have to research and find a new dressing because even though I like balsamic vinegar and olive oil it's starting to get old. I also had an orange. I need to get groceries. I'm running out of fruit!
No snack. I forgot to pack one. I have some almonds in the car and I ate a few of those on the way home :)
For supper I made a big stir fry. Lots of veggies and shrimp! I really had no idea what to put in it that was on the plan. I used olive oil and garlic and lemon. Once again, some research and I'm sure I could have found some options. I ordered pizza for the boys because I thought they wouldn't like what I cooked. The pizza didn't bother me. I'm really dedicated. Surpising myself actually. I was right, the stir fry was a bit bland but good. Yummy veggies and shrimp it was good but I think it could have been better. I also had an apple with almond butter for "dessert". Love that.

All of these spice mixes contain sugar. I'm surprised, are you?
