Whole30 - Day 30

The finish line... Day 30 of my June Whole30.

Matt and I spent the night in Monterey, CA with our two pups... and staying in a hotel with two large dogs means getting up early and taking them for a walk to "do business."  I am so grateful we live in a house with a patio door and a backyard.  Hmm... perhaps grateful = lazy?

Volt, Miss Ellie, and I started the gray drizzly morning with a nice long walk down Cannery Row, out to see the harbor seals, and back to the hotel.  It was relaxing, enjoyable, and reminded me just how much I miss living close to the ocean.

By the time we returned to the hotel, it was time to load the truck, check out, and go grab some breakfast.  A quick Yelp search led us to First Awakenings and their extremely dog friendly patio.

The menu was brimming with a variety of egg and meat concoctions.  I couldn't choose wrong!  I did ask about their cooking oil - vegetable - as I was prepared to hear.  (Why should we avoid canola oil and other vegetable oils?  Read this Q&A with Mark Sisson at Mark's Daily Apple.)

Breakfast: 
• glass of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
• omelet with chorizo, avocado, jalapeƱos, and green chiles - I requested the sour cream and cheese be left out
• bowl of fresh fruit (substituted for hash browns and toast) - the bowl was HUGE and delicious



After a nice leisurely walk back to the truck, it was time to say goodbye to Monterey and start the long drive back home.  


We made a quick stop near Spreckels, CA to take a picture:


And then continued on our way.  I was pretty hungry when we finally made it back to the house, but was faced with a nearly empty refrigerator.  Make the most of leftovers!

My last meal on my last day of my June Whole30:
• scrambled eggs with 505 Southwestern green chiles
• leftover sauteed cabbage and red onions
• kale chips



Then Matt, the furballs, and I curled up on the couch with our newest Netflix delivery and zonked out for the remainder of the evening.
