Whole30, Day 2: The Spiralizer Enters My Home

leave a comment »

Day 2. I woke up after about three and a half hours of sleep and couldn’t go back to sleep afterwards. Rahul says it’s probably because now my body is an efficient machine that doesn’t need sleep. I didn’t feel like I needed a nap, though, so there’s that!

Anecdotal evidence: people have told me about asthma symptoms and joint problems being cured through this diet. Surely I will emerge from this month transformed, shiny and chrome. Witness me!


A green smoothie with kale, frozen blueberries, frozen bananas, almonds, and water

A handful of almonds

Coffee with coconut milk


Mason jar salad with vinaigrette, roast chicken pieces from yesterday’s dinner, raw broccoli, celery, pepitas, blueberries, and redleaf lettuce

An extra handful of blueberries

Snack (got pretty hungry by mid-afternoon):

A spoonful of coconut butter and some almond slivers

One egg muffin thing


Perch dipped in egg and coconut flour and pan-fried, and mashed avocado. Almonds.

I ordered the Food52 Genius Recipes cookbook along with a veggie spiralizer from Amazon and they both arrived today. I’m a little afraid to read the cookbook now because I’m afraid I’ll desperately want to cook whatever is in there–diet be damned. I am already looking at what appears to be spaghetti with Marcella Hazan’s butter-and-onion tomato sauce on the cover (sprinkled with coarse-grated Parmesan, to boot) and drooling a little.

I also had to avoid the strange temptation of Chips Ahoy cookies stuffed with Oreo filling at band practice.

I haven’t tried the spiralizer yet! Perhaps I can make spiralized zucchini spaghetti with ghee, tomato, and onion sauce.
