the whole30 january challenge, update 4

Honestly, these days were pretty easy. My energy was up, I wasn't having stomach issues, and I never really felt like I was hungry. I may have overdosed on plantain chips a bit though - those things are so addicting.

I wasn't really inspired this week to do a lot of crazy cooking. Simple meals were on the menu. I just wasn't feeling it.

  1. You're a champ! I got so sick of eggs by day 3 I had to start getting creative. I kinda hate eggs anyway so breakfast was always an issue for me.
