Does that title get your attention?
I “cheated” my Whole30 challenge by eating a spoonful of Greek yogurt in my dream. I usually never had any dream eating something so it was a bit bizarre. It could be because I was thirsty and our room was super stuffy and hot early morning.
Anyway, enough with yogurt. Can’t believe I’m already on Day 7 of this challenge and so far I don’t feel like I’m being restrained from eating anything. In fact, I actually enjoying it. I have less cravings, eat more mindfully and have constant energy level. The part of less hunger could be because of the hot weather lately, although today wasn’t too bad.
I had a bunch of tomatoes that I got on sale last week, some zucchini and yesterday I got some ground beef on sale, so I decided to make Zucchini Pasta with Meat Sauce. 😀 The tomato sauce was based on my homemade Tomato Paste recipe.
Honestly, I didn’t use grass fed ground beef cause they’re so expensive for my budget now ($5.99/lbs!). I usually don’t buy regular ground beef, but after seeing it on sale for $1.99/lbs, who could resist?
After I drained off the liquid and the fat, I wiped the pan with paper towel to get rid the excess oil. Then I heated up some avocado oil in medium high heat, saute some onions and shallots until fragrant then stirred in the cooked ground beef, seasoned with Spicy “Sausage” Seasoning Mix. Then I served it with julienne raw zucchini noodles with sauerkraut on the side.
Since I made quite a big batch of meat sauce in the afternoon, dinner was a breeze. I steamed some Chinese Broccoli (gailan) and roasted some cauliflower seasoned with salt, pepper, avocado oil, garlic powder and dried chives.
I posted a message regarding my dream of eating yogurt on Whole9 Facebook and surprisingly they responded that it’s actually pretty common having a dream eating “dirty” while doing Whole30. They might even want to do a post about it! Wow, who could have thought about that!
