whole30 week 4

Oh my gosh, I can't believe we made it to week four! I mean, I can. I totally can. It's smooth sailing from here on out. But at the beginning, when I was like, "I NEED SUGAR. I NEED COFFEE." I felt like this week would never come. We have two more days left so we can finish strong, measure and weigh ourselves, and then decide how to proceed with our diet.

This week was a pretty low-key week minus the fact that I am quite possibly dying because I had some type of virus enter my body and fight its way out through my eyeballs. My eyeballs were literally bleeding (okay, dramatic a little but it was seriously bad, bad, bad pink eye) and it lasted for like 5 days. Evan was a total gem the entire week and let me sleep for like a million hours and even went grocery shopping by himself and totally killed it. While I wallowed in self pity about my entire body hating me and feeling like I wanted to scoop my eyeballs out and burn them.

Even though I dealt with all of that, we still made some incredibly delicious meals this week and ate a lot of leftovers. Evan even survived a college potluck which was quite hilarious because just by the food they brought, you can totally tell that they are college students. We do a potluck with our friends and they're bringing goat cheese stuffed portabella mushrooms with pine nuts (oh you fancy, huh?) and steaks and blue cheese and vinaigrette salads and blah blah blah. You tell college students to bring potluck food and they come with a six pack and a pound taco pack from Taco Johns, a box of hot pockets, cupcakes and popsicles. Hilarious. The discrepancy is hilarious.

 Meals this week (L to R):
/Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein (recipe here, sub coconut aminos for soy sauce and add apple cider vinegar. Don't add brown sugar to the sauce)
/Larb Gai in butter lettuce cups
/Grilled pineapple and porkchops (not pictured) (if you've never had grilled pineapple, stop your life and get on that. it's the best thing ever.)
/Salisbury Steak and smashed potatoes (recipe here)

I've been eating a lot of fruit and hard boiled eggs and leftovers this week. We had turkey burgers again because they're the best ever and Maddox has been eating a lot of French toast. It's his new obsession and although I'm quite jealous, I'm perfectly content with my meals.
