Still, most of the day there was much pounding and continuance of NOISE, so it was hard to do the prep work. I did sign up for the daily e-mails. (Hey, I've spent $15 far more frivolously than that.)
- Print out all the website info
- Plan a week of meals
- Plan emergency quick to make e-mails
- Clean out the pantry and fridge
- Go shopping
Unfortunately with no access to my kitchen and distracting noise for half the day, I wasn't able to get it all done but I did make some headway.
I printed out the info and did plan meals and a shopping list through Friday afternoon just to get me through.
Okay, here are my thoughts after my first Whole30 shopping trip:
- Over $70 for two days worth of stuff? The HELL?
- Mostly the meat. There was not great selection that was Whole30 compliant. There's locally-sourced, happy-pigs-and-cows meats at the health food store, but it's about $15 a pound. To feed myself and my boyfriend three meals with protein a day? Undoable. I think I may have to compromise (at least for now) by going mass-produced but hormone-and-antibiotic free. I've had a lot of BIG expenses lately, so maybe I'll revisit when I'm not so poor.
- Was VERY happy to find organic ghee, coconut oil, and olives at the "normal" store I like. Fats acquired!
- Bought avocados for the first time. I think I need to film myself eating one tomorrow. :-D
- Not organic, but it's about DAMN TIME someone came out with "pre-husked" pomegranate. EXCITE.
- And the rotisserie chicken is just "regular" chicken but is for tonight. I'll STILL use the leftovers during Whole30 though.
Back tomorrow with Day 1 report AND a race report from what will literally my coldest race ever if the forecast holds.
