Debauchery

I am planning a day of complete and utter debauchery. I finished the Whole Life Challenge this morning. I’m giving myself this day to indulge in an absolute bacchanal of badness nutritionally speaking and then I’m going back on the wagon. The wagon is: No dairy No grains except brown rice, quinoa, wild rice, buckwheat, […]

What I Really Eat

A question I get a lot recently is “Are you still on your No Fun diet?” Yes, I’m in the middle of the Whole Life Challenge.  Yes, it is restrictive.  But, I’m eating great food.  I’d hardly call it “No Fun.”  So, I decided to list what I ate yesterday as an example of what […]

WLC is over – So now what?

For the past two months I’ve been participating in the Whole Life Challenge. For me the Challenge was mainly about the food rules. I stuck pretty closely to them except when I didn’t control my food choices (other people cooking for me, traveling and eating out, etc). The key for me was doing a lot […]

WLC-Legal Brownie Sundaes

Since the Whole Life Challenge rules specify no sugar (including honey and artificial sweeteners) and no grains, you’d think that brownie sundaes would be out of bounds. But where there is a will there is a way. I started out by making brownies based on this recipe. Source: civilizedcavemancooking.com via Heather on Pinterest It has […]

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Sounds disgusting, doesn’t it? But actually it is pretty good. I’ve found out through my research for trying to do a paleo-vegetarian diet for the Whole Life Challenge that cauliflower is the key. It can be made into rice. Now it can be made into pizza. Take 1 head of cauliflower and dice it in […]

What I didn’t eat

So I lost all my nutrition points as expected because dinner was pizza and salad.  I considered eating just salad until they dumped a bunch of cheese on it making it illegal too. But, you should see what I didn’t eat! I got here and my secretary for the weekend who didn’t know about my […]

I was doing well

I wrote a whole post about how well I was doing on the challenge so far except for that one time I screwed up by accident.  Then I deleted it because I don’ t know how to use the wordpress app on my phone. It was a good post but I don’t have the heart […]

What it looks like so far

I was worried about what I was going to eat during this nutrition challenge. Basically, for me, everything but fruits and vegetables are out. I did a lot of research ahead of time and that helped. I’ve cooked and frozen food to make it easy to eat when I’m pressed for time. I was fighting […]

Egg Muffins

I’m not big fan of eggs. I don’t like the texture no matter how they are made. I have to disguise the taste with some form of tomato – ketchup or salsa. The only egg product I really tolerate is the egg on McDonald’s bacon, egg and cheese bagel (without the meat) but with their […]

Paleo-Veg

The diet for the Whole Life Challenge is based on paleo diets. Those are whole food diets that rely fairly heavily on meat. As a vegetarian this is totally not going to work for me. I am also lazy when it comes to eating. I want to eat immediately when I am hungry. I don’t […]
