milbran220 Posted May 12, 2014 Share Posted May 12, 2014 Hello all, I'm just starting my Whole30 today (prepared all weekend). My boyfriend has graciously decided to join me (he's 100% supportive on pretty much anything health related but still surprising he'd give up his staple foods of granola & yogurt, breakfast cereal, his bean/cheese/rice/sourcream dish). He is such a creature of habit! We are both pretty healthy to begin with. We are active (him a little bit moreso than me), take lots of walks, regularly work out at the gym. We don't drink soda or eat candy, no desserts (for the most part... stuff is too sugary for us most of the time), and tend to stay away from fast food and fried anything (weakness for non-breaded wings though). Last night we were laughing a little bit at our "totally non-compliant Whole30 meal of tofu vegetable fajitas" and thinking about the 30-day journey we are about to embark upon. I came across Whole30 through NomNomPaleo. Her book just kind of grabbed my attention in the bookstore, so I checked out a few recipes on her website. Ethiopean Chicken was first up... introduction to Ghee and cauliflower rice... and I think we became hooked... the flavors!!!... the totally guilt free "rice"! Amazing! It soon became aparent that I was going to have to buy her book and web app. So we've been dabbling in paleo for the last month and I decided that I wanted to try taking the "plunge" to Whole30. Thankfully I feel like I already have a good "base" to work on. The hardest part will be meals with other people. I occasionally will spend the whole day with my gaming crew and they pretty much are the OPPOSITE of Whole30. HAHAHAHA... but at least they are getting used to the idea of me bringing my own food and something "weird" to share. Today's work food (I sit at a desk most of the day... QQ) Carrots Apple Banana Madras Chicken Salad NomNomPaleo's trail mix (nuts, coconut, dried pinneapple... all from Outpost Natural Foods with no sugar added) Nice to "meet" you all! ~Lindsay (and Mike) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
