Whole30: Day 5

Today I was tired all day and had a serious jones for sugar.  These things are undoubtedly related.  For breakfast I sliced up some of the leftover bratwurst from dinner and had that with two (inadvertently) over-medium eggs and the last of the Lion’s Mane mushrooms.  Not a pretty breakfast, but it was good.  I […]

After breakfast I […]
