katiemcp Posted January 3, 2014 Share Posted January 3, 2014 Here I am on day #3 and I am loving it! I weaned off of most grain based carbs and purposefully cut back on sugars as well in December before I discovered Whole 30. One week of research and a couple emails back and forth with my brother (he's been long term paleo and lost a ton of weight and is so healthy now! ), and I jumped right in January first! I am breastfeeding my 7 month old and 2.5 year old. I know from experience my supply is better with carbs but I am miserable eating pasta and such with tummy issues that are fairly unpleasant. I'm hoping for the weight loss benefits but I am mostly looking for relief from the tummy issues and from my really terrible (red and raw and sore) dry skin. (: Day 1 and 2 were pretty easy, I did accidentally buy some nuts roasted in non compliant oil, oh well my husband'll just have to eat them. I tend to be really really good about sticking just to "my" food. I spent NYE home with the kids while hubby was at work, so I took advantage of the time to prep all sorts of food for the week: I roasted sweet potatoes and spaghetti squash, marinated chicken thighs in garlic and herbs and citrus zest (yum), and grilled some grass fed flank for dinner I had marinating in garlic, ginger, cilantro, lime, and olive oil, yum. I served it with snap peas and all sorts of veg sautÃ©ed in coconut oil with sesame seeds. Who needs Chinese Food Tradition on New Years when they're getting ready for whole 30!? (I did kill a couple generous glasses of chardonnay though, haha). So I woke up on Day 1 ready to roll! Day 3 Going well, too! Had some upset tummy issues today, blech, but I think I'm past it. No headaches! Woot! This morning I started the day with a banana and almond butter, not ideal but I hadto drive hubs to work in the snowstorm, gah. Decaf with coconut milk (canned organic). Late meal 1 was 2 eggs baked in avocado, with all sorts of veggies and sauteed greens (cooked in coconut oil). Meal 2 was ground grass fed beef with sauteed veggies and fresh made guacamole (veggies sauteed in ghee). Meal 3 will most likely be sauteed chicken thighs, spaghetti squash, more veg, and probably some sweet potato. Yum! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
