    Firefly's Whole30 Long (try #2)

    Take two, day nine Breakfast: Bacon, strawberry & blueberry salad with caesar dressing, coffee & creamer 2nd Breakfast: Potatoes, bacon, & fruit Dinner: grilled burger with guacamole, side salad with caesar dressing, water Snacks: Grapes, pistachios, guacamole, bits of tomorrow's lunch, seaweed snacks Overall, today was kind of an oddball. It was my day off and my whole morning consisted of medical appointments. Because of that, I had what seemed like another meal in between appointments. And that threw me off, so I didn't eat a full-fledged lunch, and yada yada......that was my day food wise. On other terms, I had a great day (because I just dedicated today as my 'mental health day'), and I heard that's a good thing to do every now and then. There are some goals that I would like to set and accomplish for myself for the next two weeks (and more) of this Whole 30. I need to get crack-a-lackin on these! Okay, I'll stop ranting now.

    Firefly's Whole30 Long (try #2)

    Take two, day eight Breakfast: Two scrambled eggs with some hash & ketchup, 1 tangerine, coffee & creamer Lunch: Avocado chicken salad with bell pepper & green apple slices, caesar for dipping, water Dinner: Sausage kale & potato soup, water Snacks: a few pistachios and seaweed snacks Overall, I have felt pretty pissed off about small stuff (for the last three days actually). I know there is an 'I'm angry!' phase, but I have most definitely been feeling the effects of it. Also, today was the first time I actually had an after work nap, which is something that occurred all too often before I took this plunge.

    Accountability

    Hi! I'm on my second attempt at Whole 30 as well. Maybe we can help each other stay accountable this time around.

    Take two, day seven Breakfast: 2 bacon and guacamole 'sammies', 1 tangerine, coffee & creamer Lunch: Sausage & potato hash with ketchup, caesar & sunflower seeds, 2 tangerines, water Dinner: Sausage kale & potato soup, 1 burger with an egg & ketchup, water No snacking today (#NSV) Overall, today was not really any different than the last day or two. I'm getting better about waking up, but for some reason I'm just wide awake and not wanting to go to bed by the time I usually go to bed (....weird...). This prompted me to have a second cup of coffee for the first time in a while, and it didn't feel a whole lot different from when I drink just one cup of coffee. (....also weird...). I'll see what the future holds I guess. WEEK ONE COMPLETE

    Lavva plant based yogurt

    Thanks! I'm actually not a huge yogurt fan at all. I actually had a strawberry one along with a breakfast of eggs & bacon yesterday. I only really use yogurt (at all) either when I just want a sweeter breakfast (which is not that often) or for greek tzatziki.

    Lavva plant based yogurt

    Since I didn't see anything about this product, I'll go ahead and ask. Yesterday I found this yogurt at Whole Foods. It says 'no added sugar' right on the label and the ingredients don't list sugar (which is my main concern with alternative yogurts). I just wanted to see if this is a good yogurt for W30 before I figuratively go buy 10 and rejoice. Here's the website. https://lovvelavva.com/

    Firefly's Whole30 Long (try #2)

    Take two, day six Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with bacon & ketchup, 2 tangerines, coffee & creamer Lunch: Avocado chicken salad with bell pepper slices, green apple slices & almond butter, water Dinner: Boneless ribs, kimchi, kirkland seaweed snacks, water Snacks: sunflower seeds, green apple slices & almond butter Overall, today was just about the same as yesterday. Wasn't feeling too much hunger, and temptations are easier for me to say no to. Also, after reading a post about medicine, I came to discover that my vitamin d3 has soy product in it. And to add on, today was the first time I went to church since starting this round, so I've come to the conclusion that I will still partake in communion. Other than that....nothing was wrong. (and I'm still doing better than I did the first time around at this time).

    Firefly's Whole30 Long (try #2)

    Take two, day five Breakfast: Hash with the last of my pesto (for now) and ketchup, coffee & creamer Lunch: Another salad from Whole Foods (with Tessamae's Caesar) along with some fruit, water Dinner: Thai red curry, lots of water Snacks: Guacamole, pistachios, Country Archer beef jerky Overall, today was a solid day. When I felt bits of hunger, I just quelled that down with nuts & beef jerky. And also, I went out for some Thai food at a local restaurant. I'm really proud of the fact that I actually asked the server about what was in some food I was interested in. They also say that use fresh ingredients and prepare as fresh as they can. So, I know I'm taking a chance of above curry having something not compliant in it....but I'm an adult, and I planned this before even thinking about doing another Whole 30, so I'll just continue. (and this actually makes me realize that I'm doing than I did the first time around.)

    Take two, day four Breakfast: Aforementioned hash with pesto, 1 avocado & 3 eggs, 3 pieces of bacon, strawberries, coffee & creamer Lunch: Fruit, veg & Cesar dressing as dip, pistachios, & guacamole, water Dinner: Aforementioned soup Snacks: kirkland's seaweed snacks Overall.....headache was much better today. Even though that was the case, I think I ate too much breakfast, because I have not felt a single bit hungry after eating that today. Or maybe I'm just eating just the right amount of meal template stuff...........who knows.

    Firefly's Whole30 Long (try #2)

    Take two, day three Breakfast: Sausage, potato & pepper hash with 'detox' pesto, strawberries, coffee, nutpods creamer Lunch: Whole Foods salad with Cesar & 'detox' pesto, water Dinner: Sausage, kale & potato soup (from Whole30 Cookbook), side salad w/ Tessamae's Balsamic dressing, water Snacks: Sunflower seeds & pistachios Overall.....holy head-ache. I could definitely feel one today, and it's lasting (even to right this moment). And also, I'm just darn tired and feel like I could take a nap at any time of the day.....I know this feeling will soon disappear, but today.....man, this hit me like a train.

    1st timer, starting Jan 7th!

    Hi Sarah. Take/try number 2 is going quite well (at the end of the third day). And to answer your question, I partly knew what I was doing when I was doing this for the first time. I was half meal planning half winging it (it's a part of who I am ). I had many instances of "Ehh, what the heck....let's eat this" when I was eating out, and that accumulated to the point of where I just stopped. I did see results physically (I lost over 10 lbs.) and that is motivating me to try harder this time. And I know more this time around. Hope that answers your question!

    Take two, day two Breakfast: Eggs & bacon, coffee, nutpods creamer Lunch: Whole Foods salad with above Cesar dressing, water Dinner: GV Mediterranean Chicken Overall, I could feel the hunger more today, but I just kept drinking water. The temptations are still there, but so far so good.

Dinner: Zoe's Kitchen (chicken kabobs, grilled potato salad, fresh fruit), water This day one seemed to go pretty well. I didn't snack on anything heavily, and I was feeling it towards meal times. Otherwise, a pretty good day 1.

    Kimchi

    Yeah....kimchi usually contains some kind of sugar (and maybe miso or soy) as Shannon mentioned above. It needs something to ferment on. But if anyone finds any brand name compliant kimchi, let me know! #koreanproblems
