<–That was me, yesterday, at my Super Bowl party digging into the short ribs, and the meatballs, and the guacamole, and those organic blue corn tortilla chips, and the homemade pita chips..and the wine. The wine. I had a 1/2 glass of white and then a 1/2 glass of red and I was done. I thought for sure I would get all buzzed and loopy after the first sip, it’s been a month since I had any alcohol, but I felt nothing (I’m sure the chips absorbed the alcohol) and it really wasn’t worth consuming the sugar so I stopped drinking it and switched to water. I could’ve done without the cup of coffee at 8pm but hey, it was a party! Let’s go crazy!
I’m still not sure where I’m going next with my eating habits. I’m still sort of sticking to the detox diet but I’ve added fruit and grains back in. No bread, no refined sugar and with the exception of last night, no alcohol. I made Paleo brownies for yesterday and I have to say they were delicious. They were made with shredded sweet potatoes, organic honey, eggs, unsweetened chocolate powder and I really enjoyed them. I said no to all the other desserts last night but I was so stuffed beyond belief that I couldn’t even put them to my mouth if I tried. I also made almond crackers from almond meal and egg whites that were good too. They could’ve been rolled a bit thinner for baked a little longer for a nice crunch but they were a good vehicle for all that buffalo chicken dip and guacamole!
I’m so exhausted today. It was a hectic weekend and yesterday was non-stop prep work for our Super Bowl gathering but it was worth it. I think our guests left well-fed. I can’t wait to get home and take a much needed nap. 4 am came way to quick this morning..and it’s snowing..and nobody is coming to the gym..
