  1. Thank you so much for the feedback! I will definitely keep that in mind about the Larabars and the fruit; do you have any recommendations for grab-and-go proteins for situations like that? I would have loved to be able to wait to eat, but I was extremely hungry and found myself eyeballing my kid's cereal box on the counter with some major envy. This morning's meal was much more rushed than usual due to oversleeping (not related to Whole30 ... I've got a 4-month-old who is not sleeping through the night yet, so I was up a few times with him), but I'll try to make sure to saute some greens in with my eggs next time!
  2. I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop. I'm on day 6 and am actually feeling great. I was a total carb- and sugarholic before, and I didn't really watch what I ate at all during the month of December. Should I expect that the big detox crash I hear everyone talk about is coming? Or should I just be happy that I'm apparently one of those people who doesn't have that side effect? I just feel like everyone I've heard talk about Whole 30 had an issue with this, so I sort of want to be prepared if it's going to hit me really hard around day 10 (or whenever). I also want to be sure that I'm doing this the right way. Here's a sampling of what I'm eating (yesterday and today): Tuesday meal 1: Sweet potatoes and onion hash, cooked in ghee and seasoned with salt and pepper, with Aidell's chicken and apple sausage and wilted mustard greens; black coffee Tuesday meal 2: Large salad with a variety of veggies and half an avocado and brined chicken breast from the slow cooker (dressed lightly with EVOO); mandarin orange; coconut cream pie Larabar Tuesday snack (I was starving by the time we got home after work, and dinner was a good hour away): Banana Tuesday meal 3: Tuna steak, roasted squash and onions, steamed green beans Wednesday meal 1: Two scrambled eggs, half a mandarin orange, half a cup of grapes; coffee with ghee, coconut milk and a little bit of cinnamon and unsweetened cocoa Wednesday meal 2: Small (maybe 4-6 oz.) chicken breast, green beans with raw cashews, roasted mixed veggies (squash, onions, brussels sprouts, eggplant), mandarin orange, coconut cream pie Larabar Also drinking lots of water. ETA: Everything mentioned above is either steamed or cooked in ghee, EVOO or coconut oil. Any feedback is appreciated!
