Hey hey! I’m coming at you with a late post today. I left work early today not feeling well, so I’ve been sleeping, watching Netflix, and resting. Hope you all had a great weekend!
Today marks Day 8 of Whole30, so I thought I’d share a little recap of what my meals looked like and how I’ve been feeling.
Day 1, 11/9
Breakfast: 3 fried eggs cooked in coconut oil + bacon + tomatoes, side of pineapple and oranges
Snack: Morning Thunder tea, dried Fuji apples, almonds
Lunch: Kale salad massaged with oil and apple cider vinegar, nutritional yeast, snap peas, and salmon + apple with cashew butter
Dinner: Taco shrimp lettuce wraps with plantain chips + guacamole, oranges + raspberries
Day 2, 11/10
Extremely similar as to Day 1
Snacks: Banana, watermelon, almonds
Dinner: none…nursed a migraine this night.
Day 4, 11/12
Breakfasts: I know smoothies are a no-no, but my morning was filled with teaching and errands before I could get back home to cook something, so I figured I’d rather put something in my stomach than not. This smoothie from I Love Juice Bar made with Whole30-approved ingredients. Second breakfast was an egg scramble with ground beef, spinach, mushrooms, and avocado.
Lunch: Salmon kale salad, apples + almond butter, almonds + coconut, morning thunder tea
Dinner: Salmon, butternut squash, plantain
Day 5, 11/13
I was running out of things, so honestly, all of my meals looked pretty much like this:
Day 6, 11/14
Breakfast: It was a busy morning, so breakfast was an unpictured Lara bar, mango, and La Croixs.
Lunch: Butternut squash, eggs, apple chicken sausage, and avocado
Dinner: Unpictured Bad Daddy’s burger in lettuce wrap!
Day 7, 11/15
Breakfast and lunch: butternut squash, avocado, apple chicken sausage
Dinner: Burger in a lettuce wrap topped with guacamole, bacon, and tomato + side of butternut squash
Feelings From the Week:
Day 1 & 2 were good! Since I ate healthy 80% of the time before starting Whole30, it wasn’t challenging. Day 3 and 4, however, were a little rough. I had ZERO energy by 3pm and both of these nights I went to bed at 7:30/8 (one night I had a migraine).
Days 5-7, my energy levels were still low starting after lunch, but it’s gotten better. I was expecting to want something sweet early on into Whole30, but starting around Day 5 or 6 though, I’ve been really wanting a glass of wine or a piece of chocolate. I am holding out, though!
Also, I am already so sick of eggs. Help!
Questions: What did you do this weekend? What’s on the meal plan for this week? For those of you who have done Whole30, any other breakfast ideas that don’t involve eggs??
