One of the things about the Whole 30 which gets people is a lack of variety. That’s not to say you can’t have variety in the program but it requires more work, more prep than most people are used to. I think I, as well as my family, have reached that point. So to change things up I got some different veggies and that almond meal from Trader Joe’s. I got the chance to use it with some tuna yesterday. Usually I’ll make a tuna salad for lunch but I was really craving a tuna melt which is clearly not compliant. So I made Tuna Patties instead…and they were AMAZING. Two cans of tuna fish, two eggs, two tbsp of almond meal and some spices.
I have to give mad props to my wifey who constantly amazes me. She’s been trying to start up an Etsy business (RaccoonArt and @Raccoonart1 on twitter and instagram, go check her out). She’s always been super creative but this new purpose has made her even better. Take this for example:
A tree of life pendant. She made. 100% by hand. That’s. Insane! She’s got a bunch of other stuff on her page but I feel like her talent gets better and better all the time. Also she’s managed to get up early 3 whole days in a row! Now that may not seem like much to some of you but her getting up at 6 (ish) and starting her day with yoga is a huge win for her. Getting started in the day has been a lifelong struggle and I’m happy and proud to see her working on changing that.
It’s all about celebrating small victories in our house! Also I bought a scale for the big weigh in next week. Tonight I’m going to do up some chicken nuggets, hopefully I’ll remember to document the evidence before I inhale it all.
