Whole30: Day 2

OK, day two and I have already had my first mishap.  Details later.  For breakfast I had a bowl of sliced strawberries topped with some chopped macadamias, coconut flakes, and a sprinkle of raw cacao nibs.  It elevated the tasteless strawberries quite a bit.  I had my usual green tea with breakfast.
