I did a Whole30 in January that ended on Tuesday, February 4.  After taking five days off, I started a Whole60 on Monday...which derailed when I dug into mini-cupcakes that my husband had brought home from work (he resisted them because that was his Day 1 of his first Whole30 - way to go hubby!).  They were gluten-free and dairy-free, but DEFINITELY not sugar-free!  Hah!  Anyway, I started over yesterday, and since I'm in it for a longer time than my initial 30 days, I decided to use the forum to log my food for each day.  So, here it is!

 

Day 1: Tuesday, February 11

 

Workout (5:30-6:30 am): BodyAttack class

 

Breakfast (6:45 am): 4 eggs scrambled with 2 cups of spinach, mushrooms, red peppers, and green peppers, 20 oz. coffee with 4 tablespoons coconut milk

 

Lunch (11:45 am): 5 cups baby spinach/field greens mix with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 3 oz. chicken, 1 hard boiled egg, and 1/2 small avocado, 1 sweet potato

 

Snack (4:45 pm): 1 cherry pie Larabar

 

Dinner (6:30 pm): 8 ounces curry chicken (coconut milk, curry paste, and chicken, cooked in a crock pot - YUM!), 2 cups roasted cauliflower (olive oil, salt, peper), 1 cup green beans, 1 cup blueberries with 1/4 cup coconut milk on top

Hahahaha, Johanna!  

 

Ahh!  Why would he bring cupcakes home when you're both doing a Whole30!?  I would have been so angry! 

 

Yeah, I think he just expected me to successfully avoid them since I'd had such a great Whole30.  He was wrong!  We have three boys, so we've been sending one mini-cupcake in their lunches the past few days.  They're finally gone!

So, my goal was to make it through this Whole60 without eating any nuts or dried fruit (except in the occasional dessert Larabar), but I totally blew it yesterday.  I bought cashews, apricots, dates, and sunflower seeds to make a trail mix for our three sons (ages 8, 5, and 2), who are mourning the loss of their usual easy snacks (granola bars, juice boxes, pretzels) as we move the whole family toward the Paleo lifestyle.

 

Anyway, while making the trail mix, I ate and ate the ingredients... finally, I mixed in their dairy-free chocolate chips, so that stopped me.  Ugh.

 

Here are yesterday's meals. 

 

Day 4: Friday, February 14

 

Breakfast (6:30 am): 3 eggs with 2 cups veg (spinach, red/green bell peppers, mushrooms), 1 orange, 20 oz coffee with full fat coconut milk

 

Lunch (11:45 am): 5 cups spinach/field greens salad (3 oz chicken, hard boild egg, olive oil and vinegar), 1 grapefruit, 1 sweet potato

 

Snack (4:00 pm): cashews/dates/sunflower seeds/pumpkin seeds/dried apricots, huge quantities

 

Dinner (5:30 pm): green beans (1 cup), tilapia (2 oz)

 

 

I'd LOVE some feedback on my meals if anyone is reading this!

You've already addressed the snack, so I won't go there.  ;)

 

Your 1st two meals look ok. Meal 3 looks light in protein (maybe due to the trail mix earlier)? Ideally, your protein should be 1-2 palm sizes. Also, did you have a compliant fat?

Yes, I was definitely full from the "snack", so I didn't finish my dinner.  The tilapia was cooked in olive oil - would that count as a compliant fat?

Yes, although if you cooked it in a pan on the stovetop, much of that fat stays in the pan. As such, you'd want to add some fat after cooking. Olives, for example.

 

Also, going forward with snacks, look for them to be a mini-meal, containing a protein and fat. Nuts are a fat source. Limit your fruit to enjoy with or immediately after your meals.
