Whole 30: Day 3

Debra McVay's photo.     Last night was rough. Ray's sugar dropped right before bed and then twice during the night, so he got very little sleep. Lydia had a really bad nosebleed, and I had to help her. Then Alex wasn't sleeping well, so he climbed in bed with us, and almost chased me out of the bed. I woke up with the same headache I went to bed with, but just moving around at work got rid of it before lunch.

     It was a strange day. I alternated between very happy and very cranky and between tired and hurting and full of energy. Ray was able to cut his insulin use in half, and he had lots of energy today, but he also developed a headache. Lydia was full o energy and did lots of chores and drew comics.

     So breakfast was bacon onion quiche, and if you haven't eaten this type of quiche, you are missing out. It's pretty easy to make, too. Cook your bacon, then caramelize your onions in the bacon grease. Allow to cool before adding to your egg mixture. Bake as usual. Lunch was cauliflower rice sushi. I work with someone who didn't know that the red specks on some sushi was fish roe. He thought they were sushi sprinkles. It was funny. Dinner was super sausage stuffed butternuts. We make our own sausage with pineapple sage from our garden, ground pork, and pork liver. There was also bacon sprinkled on top. It was delicious, and the liver is chock full of bio-available vitamin A.
