Whole 30: Day 12

Not much to share today, but so far, things are going well here. Finding compliant things to eat hasn't been too hard, and they even let me cook dinner for everyone tonight! Matt's mom wanted to try spaghetti squash, so I made some with homemade sauce and chicken thighs. Pretty good! Breakfast was scrambled eggs, lunch was an omelette with spinach, mushrooms, and broccoli and a little cup of fresh fruit.

One of the best things about today: we went to Trader Joe's. Very exciting stuff since the closest one to us in South Carolina is over an hour away. We got raw cashews, unsweetened/unsulphured dried cranberries, and unsulphured dried apricots. Looking forward to cooking with those! We also got a few Larabars since they cost nearly half what they do in South Carolina, and I had one for an afternoon snack.

Matt's mom and brother are being incredibly supportive and asking us if the restaurants are okay and if we will be able to find compliant things to eat. We explained the Whole 30 today at lunch, to try and help them make more sense of the rules. I'm definitely less nervous than I was before coming here.
