Greetings everyone! I took a few days off blogging after my Whole 30 as I worked as hard as I could to post something new everyday of the journey. Aside from my travel days, I did a pretty good job!
After the Whole 30 things have settled down. Yes, I have had some diet soda, but have managed to keep the numbers much more respectable than before. There is no doubting the benefits the Whole 30 brought to my life and my relationship with food. It will be interesting to see how things progress from here.
Last night for dinner we ate a beef brisket that soaked in the Sous Vide for 72 hours. I seasoned it with John Besh’s Basic Creole Spice mix that includes (from memory) salt, pepper, garlic powder, and celery seeds. It gave it an amazing flavor, and I whipped up some Spice Chipotle BBQ Sauce from the Zen Belly Blog out of San Francisco. This sauce was just the combination of spicy and sweet. I cut back a bit on the honey and molasses to keep the natural sugars down, but it was just great flavor and took the brisket over the top. On the side I roasted off some butternut squash and browned off some cinnamon apples in some ghee. I was a little slow on the pictures (off my game) and just managed a pic of the brisket.
