    One suggestion regarding veggies. Buying one head of cabbage for the entire week wasn't sustainable from the get-go (you've said multiple times that you bought the one cabbage for your veg all week). Try buying a wide variety of veggies that can be used in multiple dishes. Think staples like onions, peppers, celery, carrots, zucchini, green beans, spinach, sweet potatoes, squash. You can "rice" heads of cauliflower and broccoli with a cheese grater (or of course, use the florets as-is). Limiting yourself to one vegetable for the entire week is going to set you up for failure. Please consider listening to everything @ladyshanny is saying instead of declaring defeat because you've tried a few things that weren't your cup of tea. There have been so many great suggestions here, but it feels like you are not taking them in at all and have a lot of excuses - to which everyone in this thread is graciously continuing to show you how you can work around. Saying things like "I don't know what else for breakfast is allowed" after SO MANY GREAT suggestions shows that you need to do a ton more research. And re-read all of the comments. None of that is bad; we all started out needing to research and learn. Wishing you the best.

    Honestly, doing your own research and being responsible for your own program is a huge part of Whole30. Said with love, of course. "No recipe" meals like sweet potato hash are my go-to's when I don't want to bust out a recipe. Just throw a bunch of ingredients into a skillet: cubed sweet potatoes, onion, pepper, zucchini, apple, a compliant sausage or ground turkey - whatever you have on-hand - with a drizzle of olive oil and some seasonings. "No recipe" soups are also surprisingly simple and affordable. I like to make one with chicken broth, onion, celery, carrot, cubed potato and chicken sausage. Chili would fall in this category as well... ground beef or turkey, onion, pepper, carrot, sweet potato, tomato sauce, chili pepper - top with avocado. That kind of thing. Quick search yielded these recipes, all with simple ingredients.
