  1. Tuesday Meals M1 - 3 egg muffins, yogurt, granola M2 - Sandwich - sourdough, turkey, prosciutto, dijon mayo, kraut, chips, dairy free onion dip - the onion dip was quite good. I'll definitely buy more of their dips in the future when they're at Aldi. M3 - Slice of frozen leftover lebanon bologna pepper relish pizza. I had some thin mints after dinner (maybe around 4), and had a headache before sleep - I looked at the ingredients today, and there's a ton of stuff I'm not really used to eating - HFCS, soy lecithin, palm oil - I'm sure one of those is the culprit. Otherwi
  2. Monday Meals - M1 - Sweet Potato Chicken Sausage Egg Muffins - https://www.maryswholelife.com/sausage-sweet-potato-and-kale-egg-cups-whole30-paleo/ - used AmyLu breakfast sausage in these, plain Whole Milk greek yogurt, and GF coconut cacao granola that I got at Aldi this weekend. M2 - 3 leftover chicken wings from Friday, cinnamon roll with Nutella M3 - Patty melt with roasted broccoli Yesterday wasn't a great day either. I felt depressed for most of the day and didn't get much done. I'm going to update my log with the Whole Foods shopping we did last Friday, 1/31 -

I've spent 32 minutes so far today doing dishes - still have probably around 30 minutes left to get them all done, then I'll move on to the fridge. I feel better today, at this point,
  6. Going to start back up here to track what I'm doing post Whole30 round three. My third round of Whole30 was perhaps my most successful yet. I did it with my boyfriend this round, and we had a really good time together. We both lost some weight, and experienced great NSVs. We finished Day 30 on 1/31, and we've had some bumps already with reintroduction. Saturday - Plan was to not reintro anything. We got invited to dinner with some friends who we don't see that often, so we decided to go. The restaurant did have a ton of options that would be compliant, but I figured I could remain co
  7.

  8. Day 29 & 30 Almost forgot to post on Wednesday, and totally forgot to post Thursday. Oh well - I think it's just a sign of how comfortable I'm getting in eating this way. I'm planning to eat Whole30 tomorrow, then reintroduce dairy on Sunday. I'm going to try yogurt and cheese. I already know milk is an issue, so I avoid it as is. I basically already know cheese is an issue too - I may add a day of reintroing sheep and goat's milk cheeses later, to see if there's a difference. I just love cheese so much - it's very difficult for me to imagine a future where I never eat. I've been
  9. Day 28 Almost forgot to post today. I'm feeling in much higher spirits, more my Whole30 norm, than I was yesterday and Monday. I'm almost out of bananas - which I think were contributing to my slump - and I'll avoid them in the future and stick to berries or maybe apples when I feel like fruit. Yesterday, I ended up having leftovers for lunch - the last of the meat sauce from Sunday with cauli rice and Caesar dressing. Weird mix, but ok. We went to a late dinner with our friend, so I had a banana with nut butter in the late afternoon to hold me over. Dinner was delicious, as always
  10. Day 27 Feeling okay this morning. Yesterday afternoon I hit a real slump and took a mid-afternoon nap, something I never do. I didn't get anything done after work, and my boyfriend made dinner. This was not an uncommon occurrence pre-Whole30, especially in the winter, but I haven't really felt that way since we started. I'm feeling better this morning, so we'll see how the day goes. M1: Sweet Potato Quiche with Caesar Salad M2: Leftovers or Tuna Salad Stuffed Mini Bell Peppers M3: Out to dinner. - We're meeting a friend for dinner at a local restaurant, Gaucho. It's an Arge
  11. Sunday: Woke up with no alarm at 6:02 AM. This is great, since I've been struggling to wake up before 6:30 AM this Whole30 round. I'm definitely a morning person, and when I have more time in the mornings I have such better days. I had a slow morning again, and watched some Netflix. I have had almost no desire to watch TV during this Whole30 - I'm more motivated to do chores around the house after dinner, and don't feel the normal after work slump that I had before. On weekends, we've been doing activities or chores. I have read 4 books so far this month, though. I only read 10 books total in
  12. Day 24, 25, 26 Good morning! Can't believe how close we are to 30 days. I've decided that I'm actually going to do a Whole31, since I'm planning to reintro cheese on Superbowl Sunday. I've been feeling really good this weekend into this week. I'll do a little recap below: Friday night: We had the Buffalo Chicken Salad for dinner - I tried to make Whole Sisters Dump Ranch, and really struggled to get it to emulsify. I normally use the Basic Ranch recipe that can be found on this site, so I think I'm going to keep using it. Otherwise, it was good. We went to pop punk karaoke with

  14.

  15. Day 23 Having a really good morning today. For the first time in at least a week, I woke up with my 6:05 AM alarm. I definitely felt like I could sleep longer, but I was awake and ready to go for my day within about 10 minutes of waking. I had a very productive morning with my extra time, which felt great. We went to Costco last night, as we were running out of a lot of household goods. I'll put up a post with the grocery portion of our shopping a little later. We ended up getting home late - around 6:45, and still needed to have dinner. We ended up having the chicken with roasted br
