    Just 3 more days until I start my whole30! I am going to actually take my pictures, do measurements, weigh myself- the whole shabang. I found an idea for breakfast my first week. It is called "Pumpkin Apple Breakfast Bake". It contains these ingredients: pumpkin puree, eggs, full fat coconut milk, ripe banana mashed, apple, pecans on the top, and spices. You bake it in the oven. If I make it Sunday, I could eat this for a full week (so it would be just as quick as cereal all week long). I'm a little scared of what the texture will be like, but I'm willing to try it. For lunch I

  2. @BabyBear the recipe is from The Defined Dish - here's a link: http://www.thedefineddish.com/hibachi-style-chicken-with-magic-mustard-sauce/ Her recipes are great! I also recommend the epic meatballs. We had them last week and they were delicious.

    Well, normally when I vanish suddenly from my own log, it's because I gave up on my round and reverted to poor eating habits. That's not the case this time! I've simply decided that I'm not going do add all the fanfare to this round because I'm trying to make this my new normal and I wouldn't be tracking and logging every single thing I eat as part of my everyday normal. So, I don't know what day I'm on. I haven't been eating perfect meal template meals. On many days I haven't drank enough water or eaten three full meals. But, I'm here. I'm feeling strong and I'm eating well-balanced, he

    Hi everyone! I was here last year around July/August 2019. I'm 33 now and my starting weight at the beginning of 2020 was 240! [Shriek! Highest ever for me.] I am here again to make something wonderful happen in my life! Every Nov/Dec, I start getting depressed. I think one reason is the weight gain, I'm sure. The other is the lack of sunshine. Unfortunately, I can't do UV therapy (according to my rheumatologist) because I have lupus and UV light can trigger a lupus flare (achy joints, rash, etc). Here is where my grandma would say- are you taking your vitamin D supplements? And th

  5. I started my third round of Whole30 this morning. I posted a log here of my round 2, and found it very helpful to keep myself on track with recipes, meal prep, and tracking my NSVs. I stopped posting around the end of February, in a Post-Whole30 log, and I wish I had kept it up. I've taken up journaling as a habit in the past few months, and have found it very clarifying. I don't really want to keep my Whole30 log in my normal journal though, because I enjoy the community aspects of the W30 forum, and have a separate place to just focus on the way I'm eating and feeling physically is easier fo

    Maybe work on half portion sizes more often if you can't physically eat that much. 5-6 mini meals versus 3 full meals. This is your 30 day experiment so you have to work to find what works for you. DM me if you have more thoughts/questions!

  7. So yesterday for dinner we ended up having the Warm Potato Salad & roasted brussels sprouts, but the zucchini I was going to use for the poppers was bad, so I made a double batch of these Ultimate Meal Prep Meatballs: https://therealfoodrds.com/meal-prep-meatballs/. They ended up not being done in time for us to eat them before trivia, so we just had a no protein dinner. By around 9:30 PM I was getting really hungry - should have brought a Chomps stick or Epic bar with me. I ate 1 1/2 meatballs when we came home, cold. Here are my meals for today, Day 15 M1: Breakfast Burrito Cas

  8. Day 4 (January 15) M1: Coffee w/ almond milk + breakfast casserole w/ salsa Drank a second cup of coffee at work; didn't have any almond milk so I tried a scope of the Lavender Lemon collagen in it. I don't know what possessed me to do that - it doesn't even sound good and it wasn't. But it might be good with hot tea. M2: Cauliflower soup + butternut squash salad M3: grilled shrimp and grilled catfish w/ plain baked potato. We went out to dinner at one of our favorite local restaurants that just changed ownership, which meant some changes to the menu as well. I knew the pre

    Amy, if you like Asian flavors and need a twist on the usual salad, try doing a Whole30-compliant Gado Gado. You can read about it and get a paleo version of the sauce recipe here -- http://meljoulwan.com/2014/12/26/paleo-gado-gado-recipe/. I've eaten off what I prepped for ours for 3 meals now, because I can change up what I put on my plate each time. (Granted, mine wasn't Whole30 or even paleo-friendly this time around, but I could easily have worked it that way for a delicious on-round easy meal.) For a good soup that's easy, this one -- https://thefamilyfreezer.com/2015/11/09/slow-coo

  10. Thursday 15/1/20 (Day 2). M1: Scrambled eggs. M2: Tinned peaches. M3: Grilled "breaded" (with almond meal) turkey breast and stir fried veggies. M4: Banana berry smoothie and some stuffed dates. While at the supermarket last night I picked up a dozen chicken drumsticks on sale. From the 2 kg of drumsticks I cut off just over 1 kg of meat (will make a nice curry), which left just under a kilo of bones, skin, scrag ends of meat, &c. These, with some vegetables, have been simmering away all afternoon. [Two hints on making bone broth: use a cleaver and crack the bigger

    Day 14 - still not hungry really at all. I can try and knock back the protein and fat portions to see if that helps but I can't go anywhere near eating the template size meal in veges. My meals might look light on in veg but because of my stomach volume I find it easier to cook a huge skillet of veges down into anything I make, that way my stomach can fit it in and it's not hard on digestion because they're well cooked. Then I have another veg or two as a side so I'm really unable to fit in more than that. I'm also adding at most one serve of plated fat per meal (sometimes none if I don't feel

  12. Okay, so my meals this weekend and today. I'm going to be pretty detailed here, in case anyone from Pittsburgh, or who's visiting, is looking for restaurants with compliant options. Friday for dinner we went to OTB (Over the Bar) in the South Side of Pittsburgh. This restaurant has a Paleo menu (they're near a Crossfit gym), so I figured we could find something good. I had "Heaven on a Plate" which was a turkey burger over sauteed veggies, topped with chipotle aioli, and a side salad with vinaigrette. It was fine, but I didn't really feel satisfied afterwards. I think there wasn't as muc

  13. Happy Monday! We're at Day 12. I'm feeling quite good. We had a busy weekend - out from 8 AM-8 PM Saturday, then all morning yesterday. We had a good time with my parents and managed to find compliant meals everywhere we went. Since we were so busy this weekend, I didn't end up getting much meal prep done. I did most of the prep for a breakfast casserole yesterday, and my boyfriend finished it up while he was watching football last night (I'm an early-to-bed person). After we got home yesterday, I was SO happy to be back to my own home-cooked meals. We were able to find compliant fo
