    Breakfast was 4 scrambled eggs and 1/2 an avocado and lots of pico. Coffee with nutpods creamer. I’m going to have to eat an extra serving of vegetables for meal 2 or 3 because I didn’t have time to make them this morning.

    Well I was in the ER last night, I may need to be hospitalized. I ate a sandwich at 2 am out of desperation. It’s ok, I was planning on doing this for two months anyway. Back to day 1 for me.

    Marinade/Dressing

    I’m suffering from major food boredom. I’m thinking a marinade/dressing to spice up my meat and put on my veggies would help. I can’t afford to buy one. I just checked my pantry and I have red and white wine vinegar. Unfortunately my balsamic is not compliant. I also have plenty of lemons, olive oil, and various spices. I have fresh rosemary and fresh oregano. Can any of you give me a good recipe?

    So I’ve been exhausted all day, my depression and the Zyprexa haze is kicking my ass. Whoever said the whole 30 improves bipolar disorder LIED. Emotionally I’m not feeling great today. I’ve been pretty grouchy too. It could be my period, my worst episodes come around my period. I haven’t been eating the template very well at all today, just couldn’t. Breakfast was 4 eggs and sweet potato wedges. Lunch was egg salad on romaine lettuce, spaghetti squash Dinner was Greek marinated chicken and a baked potato with clarified butter.

    I feel that way about kale. To each their own I love spaghetti squash.
  6. Ok so I’m 18 days in, and I’ve had tiger blood since day 13. I was already dairy free (I’m lactose intolerant). The one inflammatory thing I consumed daily was gluten. I have most of the symptoms of celiac, that are all gone now. So, when I do re into, do I have to reintroduce gluten?

    OMG! I just put on a pair of leggings that were way too small on me before I started the whole 30 and they fit! Obviously I haven’t weighed myself but I must have lost something significant to have gone down a whole size!!!

    Air Fryer

    An air fryer is basically just a small oven. You can make really anything in it.

    Done!

    Congratulations! I’m on day 18 and also plan on doing slow roll introductions.

    Well my nausea is back a little. I took a Zofran. I had to take a Zyprexa two nights in a row so I’m really feeling the fatigue that comes with it. I’m very tired, and I’m craving some bread.

    Freezer Meals

    Can you be more specific? Are you talking taking pasta sauce (I assume you mean marinara), fresh broccoli, and chicken breast and throwing the whole thing in the freezer and then putting all that into a crockpot? Because 1. You have to blanch broccoli before you freeze it and 2. That would turn into a bowl of mush.

    City BBQ

    Probably not. BBQ sauce is almost always not compliant, unless you buy the special whole 30 approved sauces, which that restaurant does not.

    What do you drink?

    Flavored sparkling water (La Croix, Bubbly) is my saving grace. I don’t like it as much as I liked soda, but it’s fine for now. It got me off the soda at least. I also love turmeric tea with lemon. I had the same experience as Jihanna, detox was awful. I had a headache, my cravings were off the charts and I was exhausted. I slept a lot. But it passed and now I’m feeling lots better. I don’t even crave soda anymore.

    Day 17 I couldn’t sleep last night and was up until 3. So I got a late start to the day. Meal 1- hash browns and 4 eggs (I totally forgot to include a fat ooops!) Meal 2- some spaghetti squash with a little meat sauce, leftover steak, baked potato with clarified butter, coconut flakes. Meal 3 is going to be later tonight and will probably be pork chops with spaghetti squash and coconut flakes.

    That explains why you’re the only one on when I browse the forums at 1 a.m.

    Si's Whole 30

    Um...I’ll try to say this as gently as possible but your meals are lacking in protein and fat. Have you seen the meal template? Also eating fruit alone for a meal -especially for breakfast- is not recommended. Lastly, canola oil is ok if you’re going out to eat or something, you don’t have to start over because of it, just FYI.

    30 Day Time Machine

    Also I do hope you start feeling better soon. I think the whole 30 will really help with Hashimotos.

    30 Day Time Machine

    I’m so jealous of your workouts! I’m working on just getting out of bed, literally. My back pain is so severe I’m really limited (I have a wheelchair it’s that bad). And I’m always, always exhausted. I was actually tested for Hashimotos but I was negative (I was recently diagnosed with PCOS). I also just got a cpap so I’m hoping that will improve my energy as I have very severe sleep apnea.

    Whole30, Take Two

    For me, it was a Starbucks caramel macchiato that my ex girlfriend bought (I had passion fruit tea, unsweetened). I don’t even like them that much -I usually get an iced latte- but for like five days it was all I could think about.

    Where do you live? I’m not wild about bacon (there. I said it!) and I find I like to make my own sausage via the recipe in the whole 30 book. I have PCOS so I never know when to expect it! I should have had a clue last night though, I was beside myself over not having enough grocery money (budgeting is so not my strong suit!).

    Yeah it is expensive. Being vegan and living on beans rice and pasta is much cheaper, but that’s how I got to be 300 lbs, so. Ok so the Chipotle salad is lettuce, carnitas, guacamole, and fajita veggies. Make sure you get the carnitas as that’s the only compliant meat.

    Your log is making me so hungry! Glad you can finally use your kitchen again.

    Is anyone even reading this thing? I haven’t seen a comment or reaction in days and it’s making me want to quit this log or log elsewhere. Anyway. Day 16 I had no food in the morning to make a decent meal out of, and lots of grocery shopping to do. After shopping, my ex girlfriend took me out to Chipotle and I had the whole 30 salad, it was pretty good and it felt great to eat a meal I didn’t have to cook or wait for. So that was meal 1. Meal 2 was steak and roasted spaghetti squash, coconut flakes. Meal 3 is in the crockpot as I type this, it’s going to be spaghetti squash with meat sauce. And I’ll probably add a baked potato as I haven’t had any starchy carbs today and I need them (I’m bipolar and carbs play a role in serotonin production). I just got my period today and though I do still have tiger blood boy am I *emotional* I can’t even stand myself right now.
