Anyway, I decided that I'm going to try a Whole 30. I don't like all the Whole 30 rules, but I'm going to follow most of them anyway, basically everything except weighing myself. The food-related rules are:
- No grain at all.
- No legumes, including peanuts (they make exceptions for green beans and snap peas, but I don't). Including obscure soy ingredients like soy lecithin.
- No added sugar or sweetener (meaning my stevia, honey, etc. are stored away for now; they make exceptions for some fruit juice, but I generally don't).
- No dairy except ghee. This is for me going to be the hard part. I've put my kefir grains in storage for now, it'll be the first thing I try reintroducing when the whole thing is over.
made before, but in addition to being just way too sweet (which is pretty normal for PaleOMG, let's be honest), adding sweetener? Not Whole30 compliant. So that wonderful purplish dish is actually about half a pork steak, cubed, with cut up bacon and blueberries added, fried with some Chinese five spice (anise, ginger, cinnamon, fennel, black pepper). I don't use Chinese five spice very often, but I must say that this was fucking delicious. And topped with an over-easy egg.
Even better, I've been cutting my freezer portions in half, but I forgot about this when I made it, so I have enough for tomorrow too. Huzzah!
Also almonds and an apple.
