Well yesterday was a little tough while at work.  I was in surgery and I didn’t have the availability of a home packed lunch…so I had to make due on a  salad consisting of lots of broccoli, tomatoes, and onions topped with oil and vinegar, and  a sprinkle of cashews.  It was satisfying, but didn’t stick with me.  By the time I arrived home I was pretty hungry and happy to tuck into some grilled chicken and this wonderful summer veggie (zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, and onions) concoction that I bake in the oven with some Italian herbs.    I felt quite content after dinner, but now realize on my OR days I am going to be challenged to make good, Whole 30 compliant choices.

The book, Whole 30 Day by Day®, talks a lot about NSVs (Non Scale Victories).   I must say one of the NSVs I am experiencing is better sleep!  For someone who often wakes up 2-3 times a night this is a definite plus.  I find myself waking before the alarm AND feeling refreshed.   Another thing I’ve noticed is less cravings or eating because of the clock.   I eat when I am hungry, and happily  I am not craving unhealthy carbs.  Kind of cool!
