Honestly, I might kill you for any dairy or meat product at this point, but alas, we’ve got two more weeks to go, and we are committed. We also committed to a wedding in three months, so please commence to panicking. As for the Whole30 sitch, I am begrudgingly getting used to it. I’m pretty sure I am never replacing my half and half once this is all over. I’m fine being a vegetarian or pescatarian, but I do not think I can live without my dairy for very long.
I am finding it hard to find genuinely satisfying hot meals. Last night I made the first thing in two weeks (other than my standard chili) that was remotely satisfying. I made a tofu and veggie lettuce wrap, and D and I enjoyed it very much. I plan on making a vat of it today to have in the freezer so we can enjoy it any time we want a hot, satisfying meal, and I bought both lettuce and cabbage for the wraps. I also miss cooking with sauces. I really wanted ponzu in the mix last night, but the coconut aminos sufficed. I am trying not to be bitter because I only have myself to be bitter with, but man, this is hard at times.
I highly recommend trying it, but they weren’t kidding when they said it would be hard. It highlights my food addictions and bad habits, which I needed to get honest about. Here’s to two more weeks of misery and health.
