I woke up feeling a little off but better than I had throughout the week. So…. there’s that.
All week I was just waiting for the weekend to make my favorite breakfast skillet but I woke up not all the hungry. So, eggs and a side of bacon it was…once again.
I was honestly feeling pretty good. I wouldn’t say I felt great but I felt good.
We decided we were going to go up by Chicago for the day so we decided we were also going to hit up a Trader Joe’s (our city doesn’t have one). With that said I knew we needed to at least eat lunch at home.
Lunch I diced up a potato, tossed it in olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Everything But The Bagel Seasoning, and then baked until they were slightly crispy. That was my side to a grilled hamburger that I topped with Whole30 approved brown mustard and a pickle. This was quick, easy, and filling! Just what I needed before getting on the road for the rest of the day.
Since we were in the car, it was kinda hard to tell how I was really feeling…I did however plan out the things I wanted to grab at Trader Joe’s though.
- Chomp Beef Sticks
- Apples (so cheap)
- Chicken Sausage
- plantain chips
- marinara sauce
- and anything else that looked good but was Whole30 compliant
We also did a little shopping but I remained satisfied from my lunch. We originally planned to try and be back home for dinner but the day got away from us and the kiddos needed to EAT!
We looked for a steakhouse…. honestly anywhere that serves meat and veggies will do. The closest steakhouse we could find that wasn’t fancy was an Outback. Fine, I just new we had to make sure they didn’t prepare anything in butter. I ordered a New York Strip, Baked Potato with nothing on it, and Asparagus with a side of water. I could have maybe had a salad but dressings can be dicey. You just never know what all is tossed into a vinaigrette dressing. So I opted to keep it simple for me and the staff there at Outback. I am not going to lie it was so good! Maybe I was hungrier than I thought but either way it hit the spot!
Another night of really good sleep! Like really freakin good! I may have zonked out for a bit in the car too….
Let’s do this day 7!
