I’m on Day 13 of my January Whole30 and continue to have bouts of hit-by-a-truck exhaustion, usually around 7pm. I was hoping to find the sparkle energy back by now. Last Whole30 I was bouncing off the walls by Day 5! I guess I need a little more time to adapt with this round, since I’ve had a bit more on my plate than last time.
In related news, I have discovered crock pot cooking, and it is the most favorite revolutionary thing ever (thanks, mom!).
Pot roast from yesterday. And the kids even ate it! Squish said, “Mommy, I like this dinner!” which basically never happens. I made lemon thyme chicken thighs tonight, but they were a bit weird. I’m not sure what I did exactly, I think it was too much lemon (I have soooooo many lemons now that the tree is in full-on harvest mode) and too much cooking time. Next time I’ll stick some broth or something in there for more of a braised effect. But it feels so luxurious to walk home after work and already have dinner done! I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to get on the slow cooker wagon. The best part is lunch tomorrow is as easy as a box of leftovers!
That’s all the updates tonight. Go make it a great day!
