Yesterday I made the tough decision to end my adventure into the world of my second Whole30. I had decided at the beginning of this year that my healthy lifestyle was going to be something I enjoyed and not despised. While I agree with the principles of the Whole30, I do not want to deprive myself of some of my favorite foods because they don’t fit into a bucket created by someone. It did give me a chance to be able to refocus my nutrition on healthy and natural sources of foods, remind me that most of my foods at meals should be vegetables, and that I need to be mindful of the other “crap” that I consume. However, I need to be able to enjoy things like sushi and the occasional beverage. So, back to my norm – eat what I enjoy, in moderation, and find new ways to serve healthy foods to my family.
Now, back to sushi… Mmm… Sushi. We ordered takeout from our favorite sushi place last night for dinner, Aodake. Fantastic place, three locations in the Chicagoland area now. Woo! The two below are my favorites.
The dynamite roll is AMAZING!!! And the perfect rainbow is, well, perfect! Anyone I have introduced to these two rolls love them, and I have not been able to find anything like them at any other sushi place. Now, if they could somehow come up with a frequent diners card my life would be complete!
I start working out again tomorrow. After hurting my knee last Sunday during goblet squats, I gave it a rest week. I can’t wait! I feel like I’ve gotten soft this week even though I have been eating very well.
Hope everyone has a great Saturday!
