Some Days are Boring

Whole 30 Month – Day 14, 15, 16, & 17

Welp. It’s official. The Whole 30 is now boring LOL. Ok, not really, but we have gotten into a routine where I’m hardly thinking about it anymore. It also doesn’t help that for un-diet related reasons I haven’t been feeling good or feeling like eating. (I’m ok…it happens every month).

Actually, I was really hoping the intestinal distress that comes with this time of the month would be significantly better on an eating routine change, but it’s still been sucky. Though, I’ve definitely had worse months so I guess it’s some improvement?

Anyway, still don’t miss cheese though I do miss booze. Namely social drinking. Maybe I just miss being social. Hell, we could probably be drinking water and I’d be happy as long as it was with people outside of my housemates (don’t get me wrong…I love my housemates but I want to see DIFFERENT people).

The TLDR Version

We have eaten stuff. And made things. We have convinced Eric to buy an air fryer and a juicer…thanks, sugar daddy! Or, I guess in this case anti-sugar daddy because we are learning to make our own chips and juice WITHOUT added sugar! Either way, it was nice to have juice!

Our dinners for the last day have been:

Day 14 (Jan 24)

Mahi-Mahi Fish tacos w/ cassava tortillas and avocado cilantro lime dressing. We left out the cilantro for Eric…that weirdo.

Some notes on the cassava flour tortillas:

  • They are so cool! Chewy like flour and have a neat flavor.
  • They are time consuming to make.
  • They should be eaten fresh.
  • You can put them in the air fryer and make GF pita chips
  • 3/4 members of our household recommend them over corn or flour

Day 15 (Jan 25)

Eric-Safe Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers

I’m not sure if stuffed peppers are my thing, with rice or without. They had a good flavor and are filling, but for some reason they just don’t excite me. Also, replacing rice with more veggies like zucchini was kinda weird. IDK not my favorite.

Day 16 (Jan 26)

White Chicken Chili

More like a white chicken tortilla soup. Man I wish we’d had some of those cassava pita from Monday. It was good though but a little thin. Probably could’ve added potatoes to thicken it up. It was even better the next day too!

Day 17 (Jan 27)

Beef barbacoa in a bowl with greens and rice and topped with chopped cilantro and lime wedges.

Beef Barbacoa Bowls w/ Cauliflower Rice and Greens (aka Qdoba W30 copycat bowl).

Eric thought it was a little too sweet but we did marinate it in orange juice (fresh squeezed!). And the addition of cloves was interesting but IMO worked well! Way better than Qdoba!

The Whole (30) Story

I don’t have much more from the last few days. I’ve been hiding & exhausted and alternately staring at the screen regretting my life and spending hours on my webpage update (and apparently getting the post removed from a FB writers group after asking for advice on it. Apparently I was “marketing” ¯\_(ツ)_/¯).

Either way, I did it all for you…you ungrateful hooligans.

Shameless plug time: peruse the rest of my website! There’s tons of new writing resources as well as old projects given new life. Lastly, I put some of my crappy art and bomb-ass apocalypse photoshoot pics up as well.

I’ll be adding more content periodically so check back soon!

Hi! I’m Lyndsie! Writer. Artist. Linguist. Swordfighter. Cosplayer. Model. I grew up in Boulder, Colorado, the only child of hippie parents. As a bored extrovert, I spent a lot of time in my imagination. Encouraged from an early age to write stories, I immersed myself in fantastical realms and completed my first novel at 15 years old. I have learned much since then writing more epic fantasy and dipping my toe into modern science fiction. Nowadays, my creativity has taken a darker turn as I explore dystopian worlds and post-apocalyptic futures. My cyberpunk series, The Savant Uprising, is currently in progress. I am in the process of submitting the first book, In Memoriam, for publication. I love cats, the sun, and my crazy life. Come join me on this adventure!
