    Super easy one yesterday.  Ground beef/turkey combo, diced red pepper, snow peas and a big handful of baby kale.  Served with some pickled jalapeños and a blop of mayo.

    This morning: cold roasted chicken thigh, red and yellow bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots. mayo with hot sauce, black coffee. Followed this with a hard boiled egg (they were cooking when I took this picture--normally I have some on hand).

    This morning's Meal 1, shredded yam and zucchini, leftover chicken, lightly curried with a touch of coconut milk. Who needs eggs??

    This morning was hamburger patties, the last of some tricolore salad I made for the week (thank goodness -- it's good, but getting soggy and I'm tired of it. Next time, I'll only make a half batch), tostones, jicama, tahini dressing, and berry-lemon-ginger kombucha.

    This morning I made compliant breakfast sausage and tossed in frozen broccoli, carrots, cauliflower and spinach. I topped that with Lizard Sauce. When I don't have Lizard Sauce I stir in homemade mayo instead. Since it takes 5 minutes to make, I always have some! Add coffee & coconut milk, yum!
     
    Yesterday I had ground beef, onions, green salsa and avocado with some chopped cilantro from my garden. Heaven! I do usually top my meat and veggies with an egg or two, but it's just as delicious when I am out of eggs.

    Oh, fun!  
     
    As it is currently Eight Billion Degrees here today, I thought I'd start off this morning with a salad.  And yes, I ate it out of a huge tupperware because as we always say, your salad needs to be huge and all my large bowls were busy.  Contained potatoes, olives, pickles, peppers, tomatoes, greens, cucumbers, a hunk of meatloaf and this dressing.

    One of the most common questions here on the forum is, what can I eat for breakfast? Maybe it's someone used to eating pancakes or pop tarts or just coffee or nothing at all, or maybe it's someone who's been eating eggs and is tired of them or wants to try the AIP protocol that doesn't allow eggs, but most people at some point during a Whole30 wonder about this. I thought maybe we could have a thread about unusual but tasty breakfast options that we could direct people to when they ask.
     
    So, if you eat the kind of breakfast that makes your non-W30 friends think you're weird, things that aren't your standard eggs and bacon or sausage combos, tell us about them here. If you want to show pictures, go for it.
     
    (Posts showing or describing obviously non-Whole30 foods like paleo pancakes, fauxtmeal, or coconut yogurt-fruit-nut creations will be deleted without warning. Please stick to meals that meet the meal template.)
     
    I'll get us started here -- this morning, I had leftover braised round steak, belly dance beet salad, and crisp sweet collards with pecans and raisins.
     
     

     
    So what did you have for your Meal1 this morning?

    Well, I have just been on a "dream" (as I then thought) short vacation in Austrian Alps. I snowboard, so I have decided to go to the snow and reap the benefits of my "Tiger Blood Time" to improve my sports performance. My husband and I knew the place already, so we knew the shop and the places, and our apartment had a very well equipped kitchen: we had friends staying over for one night and made mayo twice in five days. :-) Also, we speak German so even if we'd decide to go out we could totally ace "clean" eating out, and the local restaurant keepers are very, very nice people. Least but not last, the quality of meat and produce in Austria is excellent, to say nothing of that we were in a rural area where "frankenfoods" are harder to get than organic stuff.
     
    Still, I came home stressed.
     
    I was stressed the whole time, actually. Why? Well, I love Austrian food. In my opinion, it tastes heavenly. I am not a sweet tooth at all, but they have the best coffee accompanied by the best cakes and sweets, all homemade, fresh and elaborate. While I never, or almost never order a dessert in restaurants, there it was truly painful. It is not only the treats, but the amazing meat products and sides almost always contain non-compliant ingredients. I have gone clothes shopping instead and nailed it, but it didn't feel compensating enough for my "food deprivation". And for me it was a discovery, because before this Whole 30 I never thought I had a problem with eating out. In other places, I just never desired the forbidden foods so much.

    I would travel to Thailand for some personal, spiritual growth. I'd enjoy several massages after all of the sight-seeing, bicycle rides and yoga. I'd get in plenty of time in the water, whether at the beach or in some beautiful pool at a 5-Star resort.
    My energy would come from all of the delicious seafood and fresh veggies cooked with a little curry. I love me some Thai food...and although this is only Day 9 for me, I'm just sure I could find a recipe (or make one up) that is Whole30 compliant!
    I'm off to bed now...hopefully, dreaming about my Whole30 Thailand vacation!

    Gf chris. So if I want to eat the occasional yoghurt post 30, I need to eat one yoghurt for three meals during re-intro, eventhough I only want to eat one yoghurt every couple of days after re-intro? Same with cheese? I never eat cheese 3 times a day, it would constipate me for days!...

    MeadowLily reacted to Melissa Urban in Notice: Whole30 Personal Logs are NOT Moderated   
    To all:
     
    Just a quick change of protocol related to your Whole30 logs.
     
    First, please note these logs are only available to members of the forum who are currently logged in. General browsers of the internet and those searching for Whole30 information on Google will NOT be able to view your log unless they register and validate their registration for the forum. This is for your privacy, so you don't have to worry about non-members browsing through your personal information. This has been our policy since the forums were created several years ago--we just wanted to highlight this for you.
     
    Two, these logs will no longer be moderated by the Whole30 team. They are your personal "diaries," and as such deserve the respect to remain your own form of expression, within our general guidelines. (Verbal abuse, profanity, or any sort of disrespectful conduct is never tolerated on the boards, regardless of where it is posted.) We will only comment when asked, or if we feel that significantly unhealthy or dangerous behaviors are taking place.
     
    Three, if you choose to post non-Whole30 meals as part of your log, or go off-plan on purpose, we gently encourage you to make this clear in your log. This will help avoid confusion on the part of those new to the program. This isn't mandatory, but we are asking you to help us keep the boards clear and easy to use for all, especially those new to the Whole30.
     
    Finally, for all browsing these logs, know that you have no guarantee that every meal or food posted here is, in fact, Whole30 compliant. Read these logs like you read your labels, and when in doubt, ask/search/read to determine whether something posted in a personal log does, in fact, fit the Whole30 program.
     
    Thank you for doing your part to keep this forum supportive, respectful, and in line with  the spirit, intention, and guidelines of our Whole30 program.
     
    Best,
    Melissa Hartwig
    Co-founder, Whole30

    Kirkor- Correct, the new reintroduction schedule is phrased in terms of least to most likely to cause issues. BUT, order can change based on personal context and preferences. If you have a preferred order, or want to skip foods on our list, please feel free. Our schedule is our best recommendation, but variation is not a deal breaker.

    Those five eggs looks like a stretch for your hand to me. Remember, it's the eggs you can hold without dropping them as the guideline. 
     
    Start with eating at least 3 eggs for your protein serving, along with 1-3 cups of veggies and the appropriate amount of fat per the recommended meal template. If your meal doesn't keep you satiated for at least 4-5 hours, add an egg the next time around.

    I don't eat eggs at all ever as I am doing the Auto Immune Protocol.

    Plenty of recipes to be had on Google for Whole 30 breakfasts with no eggs.
