    Day 11. SO MUCH ENERGY! The energy surge arrived yesterday afternoon and of course I was locked in the house because of ice and snow outside. It's cool. I did some zumba videos, weights, squats. Ate great and on plan. Feeling amazing. No outside program cravings either. Absolutely loving this round of Whole 30. Best thing I did.

    Hey hey!
    week 2, yeah! 
    I must admit that I was kind of sick of the food for the past two days. I didn't really crave something, but I just couldn't eat a salad again. I'd rather not eat anything. I somehow got through it and today the sun is shining again. my favourite whole30 foods I discovered this week were:

    Tuna Salad (Downshiftology)
    Pulled Pork Salad  (Downshiftology) 
    Apple with almond butter
    Egg roll in a bowl.

    This week I'd like to make a chicken soup, I feel like needing it right now. On the menu are also fish curry, another egg roll in a bowl, maybe Zupa Toscana, but I'm not sure I can live with coconut milk instead of cream in a hearty dish and definitely some kind of stew. 

    I already prepped sauce Bolognese (to eat with zoodels or similar), some red cabbage (cooked and raw), sauerkraut, spicy shrimps and zoodels.

    also I must say that I'm sometimes jealous of American convenience-noseasonalveggies thingy, because I can't get half of the ingredients where I come from. I'd kill for a spaghetti squash, but it's only being sold here for a few weeks in autumn. Also riced cauliflower, wow! No one is selling that here - compliant sausages and bacon, compliant sauces - forget it. Rant over.
    you all have a great week!

    Hi Everyone!
    I am starting my Whole 30 on Monday, February 11, 2019.  I did a Whole30 about two years ago and loved the results. I am currently on Weight Watchers and have lost about 25 pounds since September but I feel myself slipping into eating some foods that Whole30 proved to me were not the best for my body and self. Looking forward to a month of recommitting to it. I am getting married in May and just want to feel my best which I did on Whole30! Here we go...

    Hi guys I am starting tomorrow. I keep finding excuses for not starting but this morning I managed not going to fast food and having a Diet Coke for breakfast which is huge. My issue is food prepping because I am so busy so I maybe just having similar foods a lot but hey, there you go. It is going to have to be really simple and not time consuming. I have done some shopping and will cook up the veggies tonight or tomorrow. I just need to get some more chicken and eat what is in my freezer. 
    I do have surgery on Tue and it’s not major which is good. It is an out patient procedure and I can go back to work by the end of the week. 
    My goals are:
    1. Start taking my life back by handling the Sugar Dragon since it’s been controlling my life for a long time. 
    2. Improve my allergies by getting sensitive food out (additional removals are garlic, onions, peppers, citrus, & nightshades)
    3. Get both my Pysical Therapies in 4-5 days per week. 
    4. Taking one day/min at a time. Use my if/then senarios to help stay compliant. 
    5. Post everyday to help stay on track. 
    I hope everyone’s day is going great. @pearlgirl2017 those recipes look good.

    Hi all! Spent the day shopping and prepping. I love how excited I am to start up again and feel really motivated. @Lauraco I waited until the 11th (tomorrow) to start just because I needed to give myself sometime to get prepped and last week was a bit stressful for me. I was happy to have this past week and weekend to meal plan and prep. Lunches are made for the week and that is vital to my success. Thirty days will bring me to March 13 which just works out well for my timeline. I want to reintroduce by Easter. Thanks! Ana @Foodmorning yes we can definitely support each other! I did rely heavily on the forums last time and think I will need the support again. As for breakfast, don't be afraid to heat up some leftover dinner. The first time it's weird but at the end of the day food is food. If you like steak I liked it with some lettuce and strawberries for breakfast. I also love avocado in the morning!
     
    Good luck on day 1!

    Hey everyone! I have a snow day here in New York and had a great time doing some food prepping. Had AMAZING slow cooker wings for dinner and made a breakfast casserole. Was planning to do some turkey meatballs too but that MAY have to wait until tomorrow.  @LoloShoe make sure you getting enough healthy fats in your meals! Whether that means a few nuts or olives or some avocado, even cooking with olive oil helps! I actually often feel the opposite on this program, almost as if there are times when I barely need a third meal on the day! I think it's all about how you balance the plate. And also, forgive yourself. It's a huge change and we are just in the beginning of the days. @MeganSchallom I'm with you on wanting to keep it going for a while longer. My wedding is on 5/25 and don't want to go until then because I'd like to enjoy the food that I'm spending $$$$$$$$$ on! LOL! My shower is April 27 and bachelorette party the next weekend. I would love to wait until April 1 to do my reintroductions but I'm going to see how it goes until then. I may also do what you are saying..reintroduce and recommit to FOOD FREEDOM FOREVER!

    Hello! I started today, round 2. The last time I did this was 2 years ago. My husband is having some health troubles so we decided to do a Whole30 together. Today was good, but I definitely noticed that I had not planned well for lunches, so working on that. Excited to see changes for both my husband and myself.

    I technically started yesterday, but that's close enough, right?  I'm looking for some nice chats and good info sharing for the next 30 days.  It's not always easy to get support at home with my hubby and two kids.  
    This is actually my 3rd whole30.  always feel amazing afterward... so why is it so hard to maintain?

    hey hey! I started today as well. I'm also from Europe (Vienna, Austria) ;-) it's really hard finding compliant stuff here, so I'll be making my own everything. I enjoy cooking a lot, so this aspect of whole30 shouldn't be a problem.
    what I'm "afraid" of is going to Crossfit fasted, as I work out three times a week at 6 am. it's not a problem now, but I'm curious if I'll mange that on whole30. I'm not very keen on eating something beforehand. anyone working out so early in the morning? how do you do it?

    here is my R1D1M1 - Sweet potato eggs nest over stir fried cabbage, mushrooms, spinach, carrots and onions. A dollop of guac.

    When I started Whole30 I found it difficult to eat vegetables and protein separately first thing in the morning.  Just thinking about starting the day facing 3 eggs and 1-2 cups of veggies was enough to turn my stomach.  I don't normally eat breakfast.  So I started with eggs and creamed vegetable soups like https://meljoulwan.com/2012/10/24/golden-cauliflower-soup/ and https://meljoulwan.com/2012/11/05/silky-gingered-zucchini-soup/.  Adding a tablespoon of the liquid coconut oil to the soup made it easy to add the plated fat.
    Then I started making sausage patties to replace the eggs in the morning.  I still like having the soup for breakfast, but now I can eat things like https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/264076/cabbage-and-eggs/ (or with pork sausage or tuna or chicken or salmon patties instead of eggs) and https://therealfoodrds.com/easy-egg-roll-in-a-bowl/ .  The biggest thing to remember is that it is Meal One - it doesn't have to be traditional breakfast food.  You've heard of having breakfast for dinner?  Don't be afraid of having dinner for breakfast.

    Congratulations for your next wedding Joanna!
    I'm also starting on February 11, since I have no social commitments scheduled for the following weeks and will be easier to stick to the meals plan.
    For now, I'm trying to figure out what to do with my breakfasts, different from eating eggs :-)
    If you like (and don't mind my grammar or spelling mistakes, since English is not my mother tongue), we can support each other, share recipes, etc.

    I started Whole30 for the first time on January 28.  I am meeting up with High School classmate girlfriends in May and hoping to look and feel good! I'll follow your progress on the now to May timeline.  Why are you waiting until Feb 11?
