Days 22 & 23 – Moar carbs

So I figured something out today about my recent mood craziness. I seem to be a lot happier and more even keel on the days that I’m eating more carb-dense veggies, like sweet potatoes and butternut squash. Yesterday I had some starchy veggies at every meal and I felt great! So I went back through the log and yup, all the days that I was grouchy and irritable–no carbs. The perks of keeping a food diary! Of course, that makes it a bit tougher with my blood sugars, but it’s by no means any harder than what I was dealing with pre-Whole 30. And not being snippy is worth a few sweet potatoes (for me and Will).

Day 22 (Monday)

Meal 1 – Prosciutto egg muffins + leftover roasted veggies. Yay sweet potatoes!

Meal 2 – I noticed we had some butternut squash and breakfast sausage that needed to be used up in our fridge, so I legit googled “butternut squash sausage paleo” and found this lovely pseudo-stuffing recipe. I’m really happy with how this came out and it was pretty easy!

Stuffing you can make any time of year

Meal 3  – Well it’s Monday, so we had a roasted chicken and veggies. This is such a good meal I can’t get over it. Plus it leaves us with some nice leftovers.

Day 23 (Tuesday)

Meal 1 – Fried eggs + leftover “stuffing.” I was lazy last night and didn’t make our egg cups. I haven’t made them tonight yet either…

Meal 2 – Leftover roast chicken and veggies. We really didn’t do much food prep for this week, so not too many options.

Meal 3 – Meatballs + spaghetti squash + Bove’s tomato sauce. I made another batch of these meatballs from Holistically Engineered because the last batch were great and lasted us for 2 whole weeks. This time I smartened up and froze them in portioned out bags of 8 meatballs each, instead of in huge tupperwares. We have 5 portions left so that should last us a good chunk of time.

If I was being good tonight I’d make the prosciutto egg cups and butternut squash soup to use up the rest of the squash, but I’m guessing I’ll probably make a cup of tea and crochet instead. Isn’t my life so exciting?!
