By the time I rolled out of bed I was feeling like I got run over. Running was not happening as I had zero energy.
Thank goodness for breakfast soup! A big bowl of broth hit the spot. This had spinach and a little bit of shredded chicken in it as well. Not the best picture I’ve taken of soup but it will have to do.
I started feeling better and 100% a couple hours later. It took a while but I got there, the broth helped tremendously. Back home from a meeting, I made a quick lunch for us.
More taco salad! This totally hit the spot. After a late lunch, Scott went out to do errands and I plopped down on the couch with the pups. I was feeling lazy and not motivated to do anything. Since Scott was already out, he brought home dinner.
This became interesting and a challenge of its own. With Spring Clean Eats, the goal is to eat high quality foods and little to no grains/empty carbs. That eliminates a lot of places for takeout!
Scott came home with BBQ from a place just up the road.
We had ribs, pulled pork, coleslaw, beans, and potato salad.
I was totally bummed out because the food was disappointing. I’ve had really good BBQ before and this was just a’right. I only had two of the ribs because they were gigantic so two was plenty. Only a few bites of coleslaw because it wasn’t very good. The potato salad and beans were not my style.
So I was left feeling guilty that we just spent money on subpar food and I should have just made something quick myself. Plus there’s the fact that I doubt this was a nice pastured pork, so ugh what did I just eat?
That is what I call, The Quality Food Dilemma. Do you sacrifice quality for authenticity? This will definitely be another topic that I bring up after the challenge so we can have a full on discussion about it. It’s one of my on-going “food” debates and I haven’t figured out an answer just yet.
