    Sylvia Metayer got a reaction from shortstaque in 7 days of breakfasts on a round the world business trip   
    Managed to go to Asia, the US and back & stayed compliant. Breakfast was the hardest and most puzzling 
    Sunday ( Paris, last day at home ) : watermelon/tomato/ olives/ basil salad in a jacket potato, with a side of cold turkey ... my husband loves me despite my weird american diets - he eats a Sunday croissant
    Monday ( On plane to Singapore) : asked for the vegan option - wind up eating fruit salad only - hungry!
    Tuesday ( hotel in Singapore - 5 am local time - nothing open) banana + apple + cashews / cranberry trail mix at the 24/7 exec lounge : surprisingly filling 
    Weds ( at embassy ) - steamed fish and chard made to order - hold the soy and peanut oil - love the VIP life! 
    Thursday (business meeting at San Francisco airport) - coffee... black.. lots of ... nothing else works for Whole30... worse day of the week
    Friday ( Hotel in NYC) - salmon, grilled tomatoes , avocado ... lovely breakfast. Am in a great mood until I see the bill 
    Saturday ( In DC at my sister’s) - two boiled eggs + bacon and orange slices - my sister the doctor is dead set against diets but notices nothing...bacon is organic so hopefully compliant 
    Sunday ( finally home in time for brunch ) ... - no shopping done in my absence : find leftover sauerkraut + ham - my husband eats chocolate brioche and apparently still loves me!!!

    Hello, I am reading this a year late, so kaceycamp_bell will probably not be in France any more ... but I just wanted to say that starting whole 30, and being French living in France I am finding it absolutely do-able. Of course if you are visiting, it may be a pity not to eat bread, cheese, wine, butter ... so best not to schedule a trip during a Whole 30 period. But ...oysters straight from the sea in their own sea brine ... baby carrots steamed with new turnips and snow peas ... farm fed chicken roasted with thyme and stuffed with lemons .. new potatoes sautéed with extra virgin olive oil and guerande salt ... just picked just ripe Comince pears added to a fresh leek soup ... wild strawberries  seasoned with ground very black pepper ...this also is French cooking ...
