My meal plan, which all of two people have asked about, is non-existant. I generally make a giant frittata on Sunday night and have it for breakfast every day. For lunch I have some form of meat (or fried egg) over roasted veggies and dinner is the same thing. So exciting, right? And it was exciting for, I don't know, a day. Jump ahead to yesterday, Day 21, and you can probably understand why I wanted that bowl of cereal. Or any damn thing that wasn't a pile of meat with veggies under it.
Thank god in December I had signed up for a Paleo Basics Cooking Class because, not to be overly dramatic, the only way I'm going to complete this Whole30 is to cook the things I learned about last night. Food that isn't just a pile of stuff. Food with flavors and textures and, y'all I am so excited right now.
I've had a fear of spaghetti squash forever because it's hard and requires a giant knife to cut open. I don't have a desire to cut a finger tip off like some people so I avoided it, even though everyone promised the noodles were so worth it. Plus I figured it couldn't possibly be as easy as cut open, roast, scoop out noodles. Not gonna lie, I am an idiot. It is that easy! And delicious! I owe Melissa a giant thank you for making me cut one open in class.
Besides learning my way around a spaghetti squash, we riced cauliflower, made some zucchini noodles that kicked the ass of the zucchini noodles I make, and made Rogan Josh that I'm planning on making tonight for dinner. I know it sounds
cheesy corny sappy but thanks to this class I'm no longer scared of some Paleo recipes that I've had my eye on but haven't tackled.
8 more days. Let's finish this shit.
