I was sick for over 1 week so I stopped the whole30. I will not resume but start over. Either this monday or the following. I know you don’t have to start on a monday, but it helps when counting the weeks and days 🙂
Oh la la I really needed something sweet this evening and I wanted something that was fast too. So I made this 4 ingredients chocolate mousse, that is so silky and smooth. Super duper yummy I want more hahaha.
Silky Chocolate Mousse recipe:
2 tbsp coconut milk
2 tbsp unsweetened cacao
1 fresh date
Put it in a mixer, mix it together and enjoy it. MMmmmmmmm
Food food food food I love food 😀 I am learning so much and I am super happy for the internet and google. The inspirations are endless. On sunday I made some crock pot italian meatballs recipe below, original recipe here. On monday I ended up getting sick at work and I was sick all week ..feeling fatigue and heavy in my head with flu like symptoms. But my spirit is feeling fantastic hahaha. So I didn’t work out at all this week..letting my body heal. On monday eve I made some really good ice cream and on tuesday my friend came over for lunch and I made some delisious salmon with broccoli rice and of course some ice cream for desert 😀 She loved it by the way. She got so inspired to eat healthier now. Yes you can eat really really good and still eat healthy 🙂
So my Whole30 is completed and this time it was harder then the last 2 times, partially bacuase I ended up with stomach issues. So I had to eat more fruits and smoothies to combat it. Then I had to fast for my check up. I also had sugar at 2 different occations. However I am happy I did it and it may not have been 100% clean…but atleast I tried. It is better to attempt and fail then to not attempt at all 😀 I did inspire one friend to do it with me, and she did very well lost a lot of inches. I also inspired antoher friend to try it…the one I cooked for on tuesday ;D

Whole30 Day 24 was going great I did cheat a little, it was this girls last day at work and she brought this super yummy mareng cake filled with raspberry whipped cream. I couldnt recist a small peice. It didn’t have any gluter which was great. I am going to actually try to make that cake Paleo approved later on, because it was soooo super duper delisious.
Feeling fantastisic today 🙂 Im loving my new lifestyle. ..it is the 1st time i am actually not getting sick and following through with working out. I think a big part of me not getting sick is due to the change i have done in the food departement. Since gluten is really making me sick i am really staying away from it. I am happy i tried paleo.
