Ta dah! Welcome to day one. I wasn’t able to do much prep or grocery shopping as I was waiting on delayed payments due to Holidays. It was tempting to push back my date, NO! I’m doing this and I can struggle through a few days before grocery shopping. I did use a gift card from a Christmas party to order some compliant sauces and coconut aminos on amazon. I live in a small town with one major grocery store although they have a lot more foods than I expected there is still a lot of foods they don’t have. 9:00 am I got to sleep in! Yay! We stayed up late watching movies so the extra sleep was nice. Fed the baby and got him settled so I could do a 45 min yoga workout. Hubby had to go out and he brought home biscuits and hash rounds for the big boys and himself. I politely declined as I started Breakfast/meal 1. I tossed a couple frozen chicken breast in the pressure cooker and some broccoli and carrots on the stove. Nothing fancy, but hey it’s food. 11:30 M1: cut off a portion of chicken breast and served it up with a plate of broccoli and carrots with some ghee. I plated another portion of chicken breast with the rest of the broccoli and carrots to eat for another meal shredded the remaining chicken to use as chicken salad, bbq chicken, etc for the next few days. I also grabbed some venison steaks out of the freezer to defrost for dinner. I napped while the baby napped, and now I need to clean my kitchen and go pick up eggs from my brother. My nephew raises chickens and graciously hooks me up with eggs! I’m not a big fan of eggs, but fresh eggs are tolerable and a quick protein.
Day 1. M1 beef stir fry, .... onions, zuke, pepper, beans. Topped with coconut butter. Yum. M2 Tuna salad with home made mayo. Apple slices, carrot sticks. M3 bbq steak, green beans, salad with home made vinaigrette, half of a baked potato. Feel satisfied.
turista posted a topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30So I guess I'm struggling to eat in the morning cause I just have no appetite. Wake up around 7:30am but often not eating or drinking anything until about 10 or 11am, which pushes my second meal to about 4 or 5pm and then dinner around 9pm. (IF I have three meals). Getting plenty of water- probably minimum two liters a day. Sleep has been normal- about 7.5 hours a night. The food cravings have pretty much gone, and my energy levels have evened out- I'm usually pretty full and satisfied all the time now. I'm just feeling bored. Honestly I know I'm compliant but I keep guilting myself over not having enough greens or many vegetables besides sweet potato and tomatoes. Is it a problem to be having them like two meals a day? I love the taste and don't feel deprived in any way when I'm eating them but I noticed I've been somewhat avoiding greens and I don't think that's good... I purposefully haven't been measuring and writing every thing down because it brings out an obsessive diet control freak side of me that goes against the whole purpose of this challenge/way of life for me. But from memory I'll try to give you a decent idea of a typical day. BREAKFAST- 2 fried or scrambled eggs with scallions/shallots in ghee. sometimes also a compliant sausage or a small cut of steak or meat from the previous night's meal. sweet potato and carrot hash, 1/2 avocado smashed. 1/2 tomato. salt and pepper. half an orange. occasionally some strawberries or an apple if I'm still hungry after that (which is rarely!) LUNCH- chicken and fajitas (bell pepper and onion), homemade guacamole-1/2 avocado, 1/2 tomato and maybe a banana OR mustard chicken with mashed potato and asparagus. DINNER- roast potatoes, sweet potatoes, and carrots in herbs and olive oil. roast chicken breast or lamb chops. berries for dessert. OR steak, roasted sweet potatoes and salad (arugula/rocket and tomato with vinaigrette)
