Today marks the 22nd day of doing the whole30 challenge. It's crazy. I honestly can't believe I have made it this far. I only have the feelings now of finishing this strong. This last week for eating I have been on quite the hamburger kick. I have been cooking up my 100% beef hamburgers, which were a little harder to find than originally thought. Who knew that most burgers have soy oil or fillers like panko? Not me. I've been cooking them on our grill and wrapping them in large pieces of iceberg lettuce. I have liked putting onion, tomato and mustard with a drizzle of balsamic on top. Another goodie I did was saute some onions with mushrooms in a little olive oil. That was divine. I made the best all-veggie dish yesterday. It was so good. It was kale, broccoli, mushrooms, onion, cooked in olive oil balsamic and minced garlic. IT WAS YUMMY. You should give it a try. So yeah, balsamic vinegar is my best friend. It tastes amazing when its reduced.
Right now I am trying to come up with a follow up plan (the social worker in me, I guess) for day 31 and beyond. I will do a post on that when I get it a little more finalized.
Brandon and I celebrate our 6 year anniversary on the 31st of this month and I have been trying to come up with things to do that don't revolve around food (eating out, making a dinner, etc). So far I think it would be a lot of fun to go to the Riot Zone in Rigby (yeah I know that name changed, call me old school). Brandon isn't so sure but I love mini golf and bumper cars. Another idea I have been mulling around would be to go swimming or something. We shall see and I will tell you what we do.
Since I am in the 8 day countdown to completing my whole30 challenge. I was thinking I could do a "marathon" of blog posts. However, saying marathon is a little ridiculous considering it will only be 8. Since I am doing a 5k in July I thought that a "5k" of blog posts would be more suitable. I hope you guys are looking forward, nay, super duper pumped/ecstatic/excited pee-your-pants happy that I am going to be writing every day for 8 days.
