lchang67 Posted February 21, 2014 Share Posted February 21, 2014 Day 1 of Whole30 went well! (I think...) Background... have been dairy-free (90%) for over 20 years. In recent years have had stomach/digestive issues. 4 months ago decided to cut out wheat, soy, and gluten (oh and also caffeine and alcohol). Within the first week all stomach problems disappeared. No more over-the-counter meds!! Also have been sleeping better than ever (before I was waking up almost every night and not being able to fall back asleep). However, am still battling with eczema (4th year now, mostly in winter months). Am hoping the Whole30 plan will help get rid of the eczema and improve my overall health (have also had joint issues). Have been cooking paleo meals for the past 4 months. Hoping it will be relatively easy to cut out grains and beans (and sugar). Meal 1: 2 eggs, scrambled w/ghee and red bell peppers and turkey (realized afterwards there was carrageenan in it - argh!) 1 c. fresh strawberries & blackberries herbal tea Almond milk: filtered water, almonds, vanilla extract (is that ok?), a few dates, sea salt Meal 2: leftover paleo pork w/roasted brussel sprouts (cooked w/olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt) - added a tsp of ghee banana greens juice: kale, spinach, lemongrass, ginger, celery Meal 3: Dinner out with friends - but I was good! Cobb salad with chicken, bacon, eggs - no cheese and no dressing. Used olive oil and balsamic vinegar instead. Almond milk when I got home (same recipe as above) Not sure if I ate enough or too much of anything? Drank lots of water throughout the day, as always. Never been a soda person and now am skipping the juice. Feeling good I made it through Day 1! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
