    Trying to drink more water as suggested -- I think it will help with headaches! 
    I got a mirena IUD yesterday afternoon - this is a first for me and I'm feeling some side effects today/last night - mostly headache and some nausea. I hope that this will work for me because I don't want another baby and my husband is somewhat resistant to getting a vasectomy. 
    I had spaghetti squash with tomato, mushroom and ground beef sauce for dinner last night and also a banana with almond butter and then some seaweed and then some walnuts and dried figs (it was out of control snacking for sure).  I will avoid snacks today (fingers crossed).
    For breakfast I had hash brown potato and leftover spaghetti squash and 3 fried eggs and coffee.
    For lunch I have a chicken salad made of a can of chicken, homemade mayo, celery and walnuts, with a bed of baby spinach & arugula, avocado, baby tomatoes, and radish. I also brought a can of "fuzzy water" (LaCroix knock-off) as a treat for drinking.
    Dinner will be the salmon & sweet potato coconut curry, I think.

    I forgot my tuna yesterday - so I ended up snacking on a lara bar at work. 
    For dinner we had the casserole plus some hashbrowns and some baked butternut squash with ghee. 
    For breakfast I had the egg casserole and coffee
    For lunch I've got egg casserole and a side of butternut squash with ghee.
    For dinner I will eat left over beef stew before the carnival and the family will eat there.
     
    I'm feeling grounchy and I had a headache yesterday - these are the first negatives of whole30 (if they're even related) that I've had except some gassiness on a day when I had cauliflower, brussel sprouts and cabbage all in one day.
     
    So - I guess that's good. It's day 10 which is supposed to be the hardest.

    Breakfast was a sweet potato with ghee and two soft-boiled eggs and coffee.
    Lunch is going to be a salad with spinach, super greens, avocado, radish, cucumber, green onion, tomato and a can of tuna. Also a side of chia pudding with blueberries, coconut and almond butter.
    I'm planning to make a breakfast egg bake for dinner - https://40aprons.com/whole30-breakfast-bake-sausage-eggs/#wprm-recipe-container-10044
    I'm using compliant sausage I bought rather than making my own. 
    I'm thinking that I might want a side as well (maybe hashbrowns? or I have some cauliflower rice in the freezer from the cauliflower I wizzed last week).
    Tomorrow will get a little interesting - I'm out of sweet potatoes, and out of salad - so perhaps I will go to the grocery store tonight.  Tomorrow night is a school carnival for the kids - so they'll be eating there and I'll need to do something on my own that's fast and/or portable.  I do have one more serving of beef stew (if hubby didn't take for lunch today).... So - supermarket is looking like my destination tonight.

    I think the idea of having a default standard breakfast and lunch is great!  It is relaxing to not have to think about it and makes it easy to plan quantities.
    I've been sort of settling into that myself. Before whole30 I almost always had toast with cheese and a piece of fruit for breakfast. I think I'm settling in to a baked sweet potato with eggs as a whole30 breakfast.  I'm working on a default lunch of salad greens with protein and veggies - but that requires having salad greens all the time, which will be easier as my garden grows, but can be hard now.

    Friday was fine - I had my first pre-and post workout meals.
    I had hashbrowns and eggs for breakfast with coffee
    For lunch I had leftover slow cooker sweet potato chili - https://therealfoodrds.com/slow-cooker-sweet-potato-chili/ loved this - we had it on Thursday 
    I had a pre-workout snack of a handful of pistachios. Post workout I had an epic bar and a banana
    For dinner I made cauliflower rice, and stir fried onions and peppers and steak (fajita style) with avacado and salsa 
     
    Saturday - I had sweet potato mush and scrambled eggs with salsa and coffee for breakfast
    Lunch was a salad with cucumber, tomato, and "Mediterranean style" sardines, with olive oil and lemon juice and a side of beets and walnuts. 
    I just had a snack of a few pistachios (I've been busy painting my sons' room and running around all day!)
    For dinner I'm going to make a roast chicken, roast brussel sprouts and  carrots, and roast sweet potatoes. 
    Did a shop for the whole week this morning - but I have time to go again mid-week if I need to.  It's a little difficult to guess on the quantities right now - my kids and husband are not on whole30 - so I'm trying to plan dinners that they'll eat (with added pasta/bread for them sometimes) or meals we usually make that I can pull a serving or two out for me before adding the tofu/cheese/rice/pasta.  It was a little hard to be at the grocery and buy things I like, but won't be eating.

    Hello! 
    I'm new to Whole 30 and starting today. 
    I had 2 sunny side up eggs (fried on a nonstick pan), 1/2 a baked sweet potato, tabasco, and coffee for breakfast.
    I'm not hungry for lunch yet - but I've packed a big salad with baby lettuce, carrot, cucumber, 1/2 avacado, tomato & mushroom and a can of tuna for lunch with an apple. I've got a compliant meat bar and lara bar stashed in my desk at work. 
    I've got 3 dinners planned that will work for me and I think I'm set for breakfast and lunch for the rest of the week as well. 
    I'm worried about traveling in a couple weeks to visit a friend - and how to approach telling them. I don't want to be a pain as a guest - but I want to stay on the program.
