On Friday night we went bowling with some friends. My friend Kim brought a friend along and wouldn’t you know, her name is Kim, too. :)
Apparently Kim K. didn’t get the striped shirt memo.
Poor Dane had to play on a lane with all 3 of us. (We had 4 friends on the lane next to us)
I’ve always known that my name is common but I’ve never been associated with so many Kim’s in my life. I also sit next to a Kim at work.
Bowling was a lot of fun. Can’t beat $10 all you can bowl!
On Saturday morning Kim K. (haha), our friend Teri and I headed up to Flagler Beach to check out the farmers market.
Check out the size of this orange!
It was a beautiful day and the farmers market was located directly across from the beach. I love Florida..in February!
I apologize to those of that you were digging your way out of snow. I lived in Chicago for 28 years and snow is something I really don’t miss all that much.
Here is everything I came home with. I took a picture of tomatoes but I forgot to buy them. Oops!
I was starving when I got home, so we roasted up some of the veggies right away. I love roasted veggies!
Since I got a food processor for Christmas, I’ve been saying that I want to make homemade hummus. Tonight we finally decided to make some and it turned out great!
Dane topped some pita bread with a little bit of olive oil, garlic and salt and baked them for a few minutes.
And he chopped some of our fresh veggies.
And we called it dinner.
If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, you probably saw that I bought the book. It Starts With Food.
I’ve seen a lot of people posting about this book and I’ve been following Caroline’s Whole30 posts, so I wanted to check it out for myself.
I finished the book last night and Dane and I have decided to give the Whole30 Program a try. I know that you shouldn’t put things off but because we’re both going to be doing this, we want to get rid of some of the food in the house this week. It’s not necessarily “unhealthy food” but it’s not Whole30 compliant. So, as of now, we plan on starting Monday February 18.
Cutting out carbs in the past has always worked out well for me. I like that this program encourages you to load up on veggies and you can even have a small amount of fruit. I’m curious to see if eating this way will have any impact on my constant neck pain and the pain I’ve been experiencing in my foot. I will be posting daily updates on what we’re eating and how we’re feeling. One of the “rules” of the program is to not step on the scale during the entire 30 days, so I will not be weighing in with Weight Watchers.
I also picked up this cookbook and marked just a few things that I’d like to try.
Have you read “It Starts With Food?” If so, what are your thoughts?
Have you followed the Whole30 program?
