Day 15

Today’s recipe has been mentioned before!  Jaime gave me the recipe for cabbage and bacon with chicken.  You cook the bacon, add the chicken, throw in some onion and garlic, then a head of cabbage gets cooked down with that mixture!  It gets all gooey and carmelly and totally scrumptious.  Super easy to make. I actually thought it was really sweet!  Make it.



One benefit of this detox is that I am sleeping a lot deeper.  I rarely have super vivid dreams, but in the past two weeks I’ve been having them regularly.  Oddly enough they have been about the detox!  Last week I dreamt that I ate an Oreo but half way through chewing I just spit it out.  I was freaking out it had sugar in it! Literally this gif.

Last nights dream was that I drank a giant diet coke, huge no no! Then because of that I had a bite of popcorn, then another handful, then I ate ALL the popcorn.  I’ve told you I love my movie popcorn, I told you I have cravings!! But after I ate all that everyone was coming down on me about how I have to start over and I ruined it! It was so upsetting.  For half a second I thought I ruined all my progress!

If I haven’t already admitted enough, even my dreams are having cravings.  Also I hope you love .gifs as much as I do because I have found the mother load.

I am going to battle these cravings and hope I don’t wake up thinking:

Day 8

Today was detox pitch-in day! There weren’t too many cooking participants but plenty of eaters.  My curried beef and baby lettuce cups went off without a hitch or any left overs! I love when people eat my food.  I took a picture of mine again, even though you’ve already seen the curry, you have not seen the adorable lettuce!

There were a couple other dishes that I MUST mention.  Jaime made fried cabbage with chicken, bacon, and onions.  It was sooooo good, I can’t wait to make it at home.  The bacon flavor on the cooked cabbage was so yum and the addition of chicken made it even better.  Next, our coworker Pamela made what she called, “Philly Beef” if I remember correctly.  It was geniusly simple and on point for any wing cravings you may have.  It’s easier than wings and just as spicy. It was ground beef, mushrooms, and onion in a crock-pot with hot sauce. That’s it!  I think the fat from the beef mixing with the hot sauce made it taste like wing sauce, finger lickin’ good, but on lettuce wraps if you’d like! I could not get enough. Also something I can’t wait to make at home. It was a filling food day to say the least.  It’s nice trying new things when I don’t have to make the whole recipe!

Ooo, one more addition to my pantry that I bought yesterday, pistachios!  I think they are going to be the bottom line savior to curb my savory food cravings.  In the shell, out of the shell, your preference.  I love them in the shell because I like the saltiness on the outside and the time it takes to eat them feels more satisfying.  That’s all mental but as they say, “to eat their own” right?

I like puns.

On to day 9.
