Week two has come and past. So far, I love the results that I am seeing. Not only have I lost a ton of weight but I feel more alert and more in tune with my body. Pre diet, I was having back problems and aches and pains which I thought my age and extensive sport injuries over the years had a lot to do with it. This challenge has changed that thought pattern. It was my terrible diet that made me feel the way I did. What I’m amazed the most about is by eating Whole30 approved foods for two weeks, I have changed my body and mind so fast. One mistake I did make during week 2 was skipped a meal because I was too busy working. I felt a tad run down that day and starving. Note to self: Eat when hungry and don’t skip any meals. Being a single dad with a 5-month year old baby, it is extremely hard to cook extravagant meals that require time. So my meals have been simple. Throw a bunch of different meats, vegetables in a skillet or oven and cook it all at once. Really simple dinners have worked for me so far. My favorite meal so far and one that I’ve eaten over and over is Pedersons No Sugar Chorizo, yellow and red bell peppers, onion, avocados, and tomatoes. Throw the chorizo in the skillet until its cooked through. Then add the bell peppers and onion until they sautéed a bit any soaking up the chorizo grease. Then I add the tomatoes and let them cook for about a minute. Top it with avocado and its done. It has the perfect amount of spice. I love spicy foods and this just works for me. My morning meals are pretty routine. I usually eat fruits, nuts and a hardboiled egg. If I have the time, I will cook some Pedersons No Sugar Bacon and some scrambled eggs. I save all the bacon grease to use on other dishes like sautéing vegetables or over steamed vegetables. I use every bit of a package of bacon. Another dinner that I had this week was bacon wrapped chicken, zucchini, onions, and petite potatoes. I threw it all in a casserole dish and baked it at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. It was pretty tasty and easy to throw together. One of my favorite meals of the week was taking Pedersons no sugar mild Italian sausage and adding onion, garlic, zucchini, fresh basil, and tomatoes in a skillet. After cooking it, I laid it on a bed of spinach. This dish was fantastic and again easy to create. I look forward to the weeks to come because I feel so good. I don’t think I will stop the diet after the 30 days either.
