my new roots tarragon green bean salad for whole living
people always ask me how it feels to cut out grains and sugar. i thought i'd give you a play by play. keep in mind that i've been eating mostly this way for a year but have been off the wagon for a few weeks so your experience may be slightly different.
here is how my first day went:
for breakfast i had greek yogurt with my montana huckleberry jam (from my brother jake) and almond butter. i used a tiny amount of jam. i work on mondays and usually don't have a chance to eat until later in the day so i tend to grab a handful of nuts which tides me over. i definitely don't hold back when it comes to nuts. i eat a lot.
sunday night we made the green bean salad and bbq chicken because my beans were going bad. it rocked! seriously. loved it and it made for fabulous leftovers the next day. it was perfect to take to work. i ate it cold and it was heavenly. after lunch i wanted a little pick-me-up. i had a cup of english breakfast tea and it was perfect (albeit i was craving this).
after work i was feeling pretty beat and my dogs were barking not to mention that i got a friendly little visitor (if you know what i mean) leaving me feeling more exhausted than normal. i decided to skip my run and prop my feet up instead.
for dinner we made our favorite tacos which i put over baby kale and it was awesome! the black beans and guacamole were so satisfying. seriously great.
did i want a glass of wine? yes. did i have one? no.
