I started a Whole30 on August 18. I am new to the concept but read all of the manifestos, rules, etc. and did great August 18, 19 and 20. On the 21st, a Friday, I had brought some leftover salmon for lunch and when I heated it up, it dried out a lot and I couldn't choke it down. So, I had no protein for lunch. Long story short, by the time I got home from work that evening, I was so ravenous that I literally felt like I was losing my mind. I wolfed down a bowl of Cheerios with milk, and that was pretty much the end of my Whole30. Fast-forward to today. I'd like to try again. Does anyone have any tips on avoiding the scenario above? I could also use some advice on what to eat for Meal 1. I'm not sure I can bring myself to swallow another egg, even though I like them. A girl can only eat so many eggs. Also, I have a 19-month-old and a husband who is always knee-deep in a project, meaning most of our daughter's care falls to me. His projects are worthwhile (usually renovating our house) and I love spending time with my daughter, but I'm seriously strapped for time and I am feeling discouraged that I can ever manage to plan in advance enough to complete an entire Whole30.
I'm headed up to the lake this weekend for a girls trip and am trying to figure out exactly what I need to bring for myself. We're all staying in a house with regular kitchen amenities, and have planned to buy groceries and mostly cook as a group. This should be easy in general, but I'd like to avoid making too many requests or cooking my own separate food...I'd rather blend in and not call attention to my weird diet (or the fact that I'm not drinking). I do have a big cooler bag to transport my own gear in if needed. Here's my current plan, I'd LOVE advice or any other ideas/past experiences! I'll be on days 12-14 during the trip. - Friday dinner: on the road, probably can't control where we're stopping. If we hit a Chipotle or in n' out I know what to order, but just in case I plan to pack a salad with chicken, pecans, and sliced apple. -Breakfasts: The current menu is cheesy eggs, fruit, bagels with cream cheese, pancakes . I'll see if I can commandeer the stove for cheese-free eggs, but am thinking of bringing hard boiled eggs and single-serving guac to eat with the fruit. - Lunch: Stressing me out...we'll be on a boat and hanging at the beach away from the house...maybe eating at a restaurant. Probably can't bring my big cooler but was thinking carrots/celery, plaintain chips and salsa to hold me over. I would try to stuff down a chicken breast before leaving if we can. - Saturday dinner: BBQ with noncompliant hot dogs, buns, etc. I know we'll have compliant chicken sausage, grilled asparagus, zucchini, and avocado, but I may try to make sweet potato wedges for the group so I can eat some starchy carbs too! After that it's going to be drinking games all night...I'm going to try to bring like 6 massive bottles of sparkling water for the weekend and just pour into a wine glass/solo cup to make things less obvious. I'm sure I'll get called out but I'll try to be cool about it - Sunday - same breakfast, and lunch on the road home. If we don't stop somewhere I can eat, I was thinking chicken breast+1/2 avocado+ banana as my emergency food. How does this look to you all? Any glaring gaps I missed, or things I could prepare for better? Any help is appreciated!
