Crappy sleep is back. I am exhausted. I feel light headed. And I really really didn’t feel like doing anything today. I mean at all. I even made up our bed at 2:30 in the afternoon. Just to get back to it one hour later. But no, I didn’t have a nice refreshing afternoon nap. I felt worse. However, enough grumbling, I should find something positive about day four. In fact, there is one thing, I finally wasn’t hungry the whole day. Win!
But I just couldn’t get a few things out of my head today. Like yogurt. Oh, how I miss you my friend. Don’t you even dare to turn out as an unsuitable food for me if I actually make it to the end of Whole30 and the reintroduction. After that I also thought about granola a lot. I don’t even eat granola normally. What is this supposed to mean? My dear body, I don’t get the message.
Finally came the rice. I spent a big part of the forenoon daydreaming about this energy booster. It seems like I got addicted to it in Thailand. I really don’t wanna give up on rice. Please.
Keep it simple, stupid. After my body being unwillingly roused from sleep by my funny mind, the last thing I wanted to do was to spend too much time in the kitchen. So first I reheated a rest of yesterday’s quick veggie soup. That provided me with enough energy to fry a grass-fed beef sausage (discounted in Woolworths, woot woot). with 3 good handfuls of kale and spinach in the same pan. Yum.
Black coffee tasted good again. I’m not sure what was my problem.
Here is the bomb. I ate a kangaroo today. I still don’t know how should I feel about it. Am I a bad person now? I hope you won’t judge me. Think about it, it’s in fact a great source of free range meat. No crap food, no hormones, just a natural diet.
Anyway, I gave it a try and made my favourite Ginger Meatballs. Opting for kangaroo and cooked chicken drumsticks (from the broth I made yesterday) instead of pork. And they turned out extremely tasty. By adding the chicken it didn’t have any gamy taste at all. And the ginger and coconut aminos I used just gave it the nice Asian feel.
Since I couldn’t get the rice out of my head I decided to accompany the meatballs by a true star of quick Asian meals – fried rice. Well, in my case Cauliflower Fried Rice. And in effect it did the magic. While I enjoyed a good nutritious lunch, I still pleased my taste buds.
But man, I made some mess. I surprised myself with the amount of dishes I made dirty today. By cooking one simple lunch for ONE person. Not even talking about the area I occupied. Sometimes is better to be home alone.
While I thought about giving up on exercise due to absolute lack of energy today, I overcame my lazy self and did a short run in the afternoon. Sometimes it takes only simple steps to make yourself happy.
And the best thing in the evening? I didn’t have to cook again. How good is that? My hubby’s parents are so thoughtful. Although James is at work, they still made dinner for me. Totally Whole30 compliant. Totally delicious. Lamb chops and vegetables cooked to perfection. Maybe we could just postpone the apartment search for now. Because I don’t mind this at all.
Did you know that lost of my recipes on this site are actually Whole30 compliant?
