So, Whole 30 day three has come and gone! For breakfast I had a hard boiled egg and two dried figs. I ate an early lunch at the office of left over sous vide carnitas and roasted acorn squash.
This evening when I got home I eagarly fished out my beef brisket that I put into my Sous Vide 48 hours ago. It looked amazing straight out of the bag, but it went out of the park after a quick sear in my cast iron skillet. It was abasolutely the best brisket I have ever had, and I lived in Texas for four years in college! It was moist as can be unlike most traditional briskets. This meal will quickly be at the top of our weekly standards! It was a good as it looks.
Every day so far has been easier than the day before. I’m finally getting used to drinking water, and I got through half a mug of black coffee today before I gave up…definite progress! We normally get tons of “goodies” at the office from companies and pharm reps, but today was exceptional. Three boxes of hot donuts on arrival, lunch from a chinese place, and hot, made to order Otis Spunkmeyer cookies! Darn those people! I actually don’t miss any of it at all, especially when I see the others suffering their GI distress in the face of four cookies or MSG laden Chinese food. I ate my carnitas (which were better than anyone else’s lunch) and went on my merry way. Since going Paleo a little under a year ago, I have not eaten ONE sweet brought to our office, and that is saying something. It’s sooooo nice to feel good! Catch ya’ll tomorrow.
