Whole30: Beer me a Sparking Water (Week 1)

Watermelon lime sorbet! Freeze the watermelon and add lime juice and put in a food processor.

I did something kind of stupid. I started the Whole30 diet/challenge/masochism. The basic premise is clean eating. So, no added sugars, no processed foods, no dairy, no anything good (basically).

You do eat:

  • Veggies (my friends)
  • Fruits (you cool too)
  • Meat (thank god!)
  • Nuts (mmmm)

You do not eat:

  • Alcohol (wait, what)
  • Dairy (dear, cheese. I miss you.)
  • Bread, pasta, rice, etc. (but.. but…)
  • Potatoes (like, almost a deal breaker)

You refrain from these things for, you guessed it, 30 days.

I’m hungry.

I will say that this is an extremely reasonable diet. It inspires me to be creative, use pinterest, google things, spend $50 less at the grocery store, and you get it. But sometimes I want a hunk of cheese followed by a Shiner.

Here are some things I DO get to eat. #FoodPix

Ten Thoughts I Had During Week One

  1. If I’m not drinking, what do I do with my hands?
  2. Cheese. Is. On. Everything.
  3. I guess I’m the best person to go out with, because I’ll drive.
  4. You can’t make a smoothie without milk, can you?
  5. Pin. Pin. Pin. Pin.
  6. I feel like I bring the party down if I’m not drinking. Usually you drink more because everyone else is, but now I’m making my friends more sober.
  7. I feel a little less energized.
  8. I’m ready to forget about focusing on food, but I’ve never not focused on food. BC I LOVE IT.
  9. I’m an amazing chef. I have, like, four seasonings and my food still tastes great.
  10. I’m no longer scared of cooking seafood! Brush ma shoulders off.

*Disclaimer: Week two I spend some time in NYC… so no, bro. I’m not going to not drink slash eat pasta/pizza. Friday and Saturday will be cheat days. Get over it.*
