It’s Fridayyyyyy and it’s WARM and SUNNY here in Minnesota! I swear it’s been raining non-stop for the past month. And when it wasn’t raining, it was snowing. I’m not sure which is worse. I’m planning to try to escape to do some climbing this afternoon, provided that I’m feeling well enough. I’ve been having terrible issues with digestion again – my body is having trouble digesting protein, but not digesting fat at all. Which sucks since the vast majority of my diet is protein and fat, and I don’t digest grains or legumes at all. Woe is me – dealing with digestive issues is so frustrating, especially when you can never really seem to figure out what is actually wrong with you. For now I’m trying my best to cut out all trigger foods (a lot are already cut out on the Whole30 diet), including coffee, cocoa/cacao, cinnamon, green beans, pineapple, apples, nuts, and more. It’s tough, but I’m really sick of feeling sick.
On an even brighter note – GUESS WHO JUST BOOKED A TRIP TO ICELAND?! You guessed it – this girl! My boyfriend and I found awesome airfare prices for a trip to Iceland AND Amsterdam! We have 6 1/2 days in Iceland, then travel to Amsterdam for a few days, and hopefully take a train up to the North Coast of the Netherlands for the last few days! I’m so f-ing pumped, you guys. Iceland has been a dream trip of mine forever, and I can’t wait to share all my adventures here on the blog!! Unfortunately this means I had to cancel my climbing trip to the black hills/ devil’s tower, but I’m hoping I can maybe reschedule that for the fall sometime, when I’ve earned back some PTO. EEEEE!!!! So. Excited.
On to these peppers – I love stuffed peppers. And I love eggs. I’ve been wanting to try out an egg stuffed pepper recipe for a while, but never got around to it. I thought with starting whole30, that this would be a perfect time to try it out, and it totally did not disappoint. Like, I put down my fork and just ate them which my hands, they were so good. And no making fun of my avocado rose – it was my first try at making one. I TRIED, okay?! 🙂
