Nachos and cards

The kids and I are finally starting to sleep through the night, although bedtime is still earlier then usual and we are waking up before 8am. After the second week of Whole30 and with us coming back to Canada, Kevin still stuck in a hotel in HK, the quarantine, the jetlag and having to relyContinue reading “Nachos and cards”

The Flip

I think it’s Tuesday which means we’ve been here for 2 days. Night blends into day and days drag forever; we’ve been up since 3:46am. Starving I made tuna and avocado wrapped in lettuce at 4am. Then I decided it was time to get our stomachs on Canadian time. We would eat at 9am 12-1pmContinue reading “The Flip”

Home Sweet Home

The flight to Canada was surprisingly stress-free and easy. It probably helped that there were only 81 passengers on the Airbus 350 which can carry almost 350 people so the normal crowd was thinned making the lineups, the waiting, the trying to maneuver around people and people trying to maneuver around you add on toContinue reading “Home Sweet Home”

Saucy Saturday

If you have a fear of flying, spending an extended time living at an airport hotel might make you feel more at ease. With over 1100 flights in and out of just Hong Kong it makes it more apparent that flying is very safe. Watching flights take off and land all day long was somethingContinue reading “Saucy Saturday”

Faking Desert Not Allowed!?

Part of the Whole30 reset rules include not remaking any desserts or treats with compliant ingredients. The philosophy is that if you keep eating ‘treats’ you won’t reset your emotional connection with food which is just as important as the physical reset of reducing inflammation and improving digestion, etc. We are on day 8 andContinue reading “Faking Desert Not Allowed!?”

Egg Roll in a Bowl

Or in our case on a plate. A plastic plate. While we we’re staying in Okinawa, Japan last year I discovered chopped bags of onion, cabbage, carrots and bell peppers. Japan is a great place to be if you want to eat healthy. The convenience stores are stocked with grab and go meals of seaweedContinue reading “Egg Roll in a Bowl”

The one week mark!

Well it’s day 7 and I feel good! The tiny bit of sneaky cheese doesn’t seem to be affecting me and Kevin only complained about mild indigestion but that’s not unusual for him- hence the recommendation for him to do Whole30 as well. I had my second Osteopath session today and its a magical mixContinue reading “The one week mark!”

Our Challenging Day Six

So far our first 5 days have consisted of staying close to our hotel room, our carefully selected groceries, the pool for a bit of exercise….but before we knew we were doing the Whole30 challenge we bought tickets to Ocean Park. We were nervous. What would happen so far away from the safety of myContinue reading “Our Challenging Day Six”

Need Some New Small Appliances?

Let me show you how to get some shiny new small appliances with very little effort… Kevin has been complaining since day 2 about the lack of variety this challenge presents. I think it’s a preemptive complaint, so far, I have managed to make delicious dinners every day and we usually eat the leftovers forContinue reading “Need Some New Small Appliances?”
