It's finally the day! My Whole30 log


Recommended Posts

I got up so excited this morning! 

My starting weight is 136.4, size 6.


For breakfast, I chose to eat my homemade (previously prepared and frozen) turkey "sausage" sweet potato, spinach, and egg bake (made with coconut oil, organic spices, sea salt), 1 avocado (a cute mini one!), and black coffee.

I also made an organic lemon and mint infused water (lemon and mint are from my yard, and we use reverse osmosis filtration for water).

Your meals all look good. Maybe a bit light, but if you are satisfied, I'm satisfied. The one thing I would note is that you are eating a lot of your veggies raw. That is fine, but some people have more trouble digesting raw veggies. If you find yourself having any stomach issues, you might want to try shifting to more cooked veggies and see if things don't become easier.

Thank you, Tom! I spent last week before I started the challenge chowing down on a ton of red meat and chicken, so I was meated out! Plus, it was hot yesterday here in California, and I barely had an appetite. I am generally a light eater, focusing mostly on veggies. I snack a lot though, as I am still breastfeeding. The fare WAS light last night, but I could barely finish what I had on my plate...lol. I love raw veggies, as they offer more nutrients than cooked. I could be a raw vegetarian if my carnivorous husband would let me ;).

Today is light, too. I'll be making the coconut shrimp for tonight's dinner, and will post my log afterwards :).

HA! I've had a few coffee fails like your ghee and coconut. I find it easier to drink black coffee if I ice it and drink it cold. Love your photos. Thanks for sharing.


Thanks!  Yeah, it wasn't as good as some people said it would be!  Ick... I'd rather drink it black, or you are right - pour it over ice and add coconut milk!

Day 5!


Meal 1:  Egg scramble in ghee with power greens (chard, kale, spinach), garnished with black olives.   3 avocado slices, 1 banana.  Black coffee.


I added a workout today ( http://bikinibodymommy.com) and ate a post workout "snack" of raw trex mix and organic dried apricots after.   Tomorrow I have hard boiled eggs and/or baked sweet potatoes! A ton of water. (Nut mix did not have peanuts!)


Meal 2: Egg salad and shredded carrot with paleo chipotle mayo, wrapped in romaine leaf.  Organic beet salad (fresh beet, ACV, salt, pepper, dried dill).  Water.


Meal 3:  I premade a lemon chicken artichoke soup for tomorrow (I need to give myself a break from fried/scrambled eggs for breakfast, so I'll eat soup.)  Ingredients are homemade veggie stock, eggs, fresh Meyer lemon (I have a huge tree), chicken from the other night's dinner, salt, pepper, frozen artichoke hearts.  Needless to say, I was kinda hungry and ate a bowl before dinner :o.

Chamomile tea.


Meal 4:  Beef stew from last night's pot roast and veggies. Black olives. No salad. Water.


After dinner?  small bowl of organic strawberries and grapes.  Ruby Red chai with coconut milk. 


I'm afraid I overdid it with the eating, but I felt more hungry after the exercise, and I'm still breastfeeding.  :unsure: .  It was a catch 22. 


I did 20 minutes walking my boys to and from school.  18 minutes high intensity interval training.

Wow your meals look delicious and I'm super jealous you have a Meyer lemon tree!



Thank you :).  We inherited the tree when we bought our house in 2003.  It does NOT stop producing!  It's a California curse...lol.  But the lemons are so good!

Day 8!


Meal 1:  Over easy eggs with 1/2 sliced orange.  Veggie soup. Black coffee.


Meal 2:  Applegate organic beef hot dogs with sauerkraut, veggie soup.  Water.  (I know this wasn't my best choice, but I was so busy with my kids and errands, that I didn't have leftovers or time for lunch). 


In between: chai tea with ghee and coconut cream.  Okay, this one wasn't too bad.  Better than the coffee :wacko: .

Walking as usual, and 12 minutes HIIT.
