So I know that is has been a while since I have blogged. That is my fault and I am sorry. I need to show you all creative ideas for Smoke&Salt and the wonderful products that I am working on. For example, I recently made some homemade chocolate fudge with about 1 pound of fresh bacon in it. Can you say….AWESOME!!!
But I will blog about Smoke&Salt and the yummy creations soon. I have some wonderful news. But this post is not about Smoke cured foods. Rather it is about a journey that I have started. Today marks day 2 of my Whole30 campaign. It is a kicker.
I have a headache that will just not quit. Maybe I need more water, or to actually take some pain killers. But I have made it to day 2. I have already seen a miracle. My stupid blood sugars have been in the mid 250-350 with meds for a long while. I can say that since starting this Whole30 program my blood sugar average is about 180. That is just 2 days of the following. (Taken from Whole9’s website) “eat[ing] real food – meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruit, healthy oils, nuts and seeds.” I have 28 days left and I know I can do it.
Over the next few weeks I am going to try and sit down and look at Charcuterie in the eyes of a person from Whole30. I know that during program there is a lot of cured meats I can not eat because of the program. But on day 31 I can start to reintroduce Charcuterie into my life. But I am going to take the lessons I am learning these 30 days and make the best of it. My main question will be where can I cut out sugar? For example, can I be just as happy with peppered bacon as opposed to maple?
I am glad you are here reading this with me. I think it will be a fun trip and we should all learn a lot.
