Whole 30 & About Fifty-Million Other Things

HI YALL! Can you believe October is almost over?? I figured Iย should squeeze in a post before the month comes to a close. I’ve been meaning to write up my Dutch Baby recipe for you all to enjoy, but that has somehow moved to the blogging backburner. Maybe tomorrow, after all it is another day!

In other news, I am on day 4 of the Whole 30 challenge and so far it isn’t much of a challenge. Sometimes I have dreams about cookies or cheesy pizza, but I always wake up right before I take that first bite. You go, subconscious! I am making it my personal mission over the net 30 days to bring to you…or the internet…or whoever, really, meals that are not only appealing to the taste buds, but also the eyeballs. I can only cringe when perusing the whole 30 hashtag on Instagram. Sorry MzFit_Momma or whoever, but your “plated” Jenny-O turkey slices and banana protein balls look like shit. and they don’t make this healthy lifestyle look appealing at all. I get not everyone is talented in the kitchen, or works a part time job, or has an iPhone 5-6, or even a camera….but come on. You take a selfie with your fake eyelashes on and matching PiNK gym attire, why not make what you’re putting into your body look as put together as what you are putting on it. I know this is sounding kind of ranty, but if i have to read one more basic ground turkey Pinterest recipe I am going to freak.

End rant.

And so the mission. I will be posting the occasional photo on my Instagramย of meals, dishes, original recipes etc. If you would like the recipe, send me a DM or email and I will send it straight to you. I have been Facebook messaging recipes to a good friend and have found it a bit easier than photographing the process, editing said photos, and writing up a post. It’s something I enjoy doing, but since new cat Nancy knocked my camera off the kitchen table, I’m going for quality over quantity.

In other news, we got a new cat. She is fat and fluffy and black. Sid is her name and cuddling/peeing on piles of clothes is her game.

In other other news:

-I’ve been getting back into running.

-I haven’t washed my hair in two weeks.

That’s all for now! Sorry MzFit_Mommas of the internetz. I don’t mean to be a bitch. I’m a virgo– can’t help it.
