Whole 30 Day 8

I don't have much to say really - it's just another day of meat and two veg.

I did notice that despite eating until I was full, I was hungry about half an hour after my breakfast and lunch, but not after my dinner. Perhaps is this because I had dessert (strawberries and coconut milk again!). I wonder if it is a psychological thing - and that the other two times it was dessert I was craving. I wasn't really expecting that as I rarely eat dessert, but I guess I do nibble, and perhaps normally my response to that hunger would be to eat something.

Breakfast was left over chilli with courgette pasta. The courgette pasta cooked in avocado oil. It's not a meat heavy as it looks as there are lots of vegetables in the chilli.

Lunch was chicken and salad. The chicken was fried in avocado oil and then I added some lemon juice and cayenne pepper just at the end. The salad was spinach, watercress, rocket, carrot, olives, avocado and beetroot, with an olive oil dressing.

Dinner was sausages (note no attempt at gravy this time - they were great on their own) with green beans and mashed sweet potato. I didn't manage to eat all the beans (they were stringy) or the sweet potato, but I did manage a big bowl of strawberries!

I also had an afternoon nap today which was really needed and very much appreciated.

Now I am going to end there, as I must go and watch last night's Broadchurch! I am so pleased I got through the day without hearing anything about it.
