Whole30 Day 17: Grow Your Own Food

My Journey: Whole30 Day 17

Whole30 day 17 brings me to a full and productive day. I also share on my blog creative DIY repurposing and today was not only a DIY day but a day filled with gardening and food prep for the week. I am really excited about our garden this year and growing our own food. We have dozens of eggshells filled with seedlings that have finally sprouted.

Last week I noticed that we were low on food prep and there was a lot of sausage consumed because it is easy to heat and eat. Today I have pulled pork, crockpot chicken, pot roast, taco meat and a mixed green salad all prepped and ready in the fridge. Tomorrow I need to make a brussel sprout & kale salad and roast some sweet potatoes. All of this will keep us well fed with less thinking about what to make for lunches and dinners.

Whole 30 Fitness {Fitbit Steps}

Today I finally hit 10,000 steps and I am feeling it. So much for no back pain because it is definitely flaring up tonight. Although my Fitbit battery died yesterday I am quite sure I hit my goals yesterday as well because I had 5,000 steps by 10:30 am.

Whole30 Emotions {hungry}

As I am writing this I am hungry but don’t want to eat this late. I know that I am hungry because I didn’t have any protein for dinner. I am not a big meat eater normally and today I just didn’t feel like finding the protein and hunger is the consequence.

      Sarah the sprouts are sooooo good. There haven’t been alfalfa sprouts around in a while due to contamination and I was doing the happy dance when I saw the broccoli sprouts. Love them.

      There was a time where alfalfa sprouts were contaminated and off the shelves but I found broccoli sprouts that are just as good. I have used them in turkey rollups and topped them on my salad…just adds some extra crunch.
