Hi, gang! How was everyone’s night? I had a splash of bourbon last night and two peppermint chocolate squares while I watched more Criminal Minds. I ran the pups out for a last potty run and then we headed to bed. I read a bit, I’m currently rereading The Whole 30 because I’m going to be doing that challenge again in January.
I did finish Food Freedom Forever a little while back, and the book was alright. It wasn’t exactly what I thought it was going to be. I thought that it was going to be more about Melissa’s story, background, her journey, and how she found food freedom. Instead it’s a guide so that you can find food freedom. It is basically doing a Whole 30 (without saying do a Whole 30) and then following reintroduction steps.
I feel like this book is maybe geared more towards people who haven’t done a Whole 30 and who need help getting started with incorporating whole foods into their diet. It’s a nice ease into eating real food without the pressure of a challenge or a complete diet change. But for those of us that are mostly there, I don’t really think this book is for us.
If you read the book I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Ok, earlier this week I have been in a funk. It happens. I deal with anxiety and sometimes also get the blahs. Truth time. Exercising and eating well helps to keep those things in check but sometimes I just need to be quiet and alone for a bit.
That happened for a few days this week but thankfully I’m coming out of that and am feeling much more like myself. Whew! Being outside also helps and this morning it was sunny and the air was so crisp and refreshing. I needed that!
Breakfast was another yogurt bowl and some collagen coffee.

It was a beautiful day with the sun shining and amazing blue skies. The pups and I went shopping and then I did some chores around the house. Lunch was sushi from Whole Foods and topped with sriracha mayo.
It’s shrimp with avocado and cucumber. And yes topped with mayo which is my new favorite way to eat these rolls. I ate lunch in the kitchen while I prepped stuff for dinner and washed dishes.
Dinner was pizza! The last time I made a crust I forgot to write down the measurements for the ingredients. Rookie mistake! The crust I tried to make this evening wasn’t as good but it did the job. It is a grain free curst using almond flour, coconut flour, rice flour, and tapioca.
The toppings were:
- Spinach and sundried tomato pesto
- Italian sausage
- Red onion
Now I’m going to have a splash of red and keep watching Criminal Minds. Yes I’m on vacation so that means relaxing and indulging. Sorry not sorry!
