Starting Oct. 1 -- who's with me???


Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I'm Laura. I've made a few attempts at Whole 30 but never made it all the way.


My various health problems have prompted me to try again.


I'm a 45-year-old woman from Oakland, CA who has Celiac Disease, fibromyalgia, low iron and potential thyroid issues, and a lot of weakness and fatigue. Hoping this diet will greatly reduce the inflammation and jack up energy. 


I have a feroicious appetite for dark chocolate -- which I know people think is good for you but it has worsened my inflammation and added a lot of weight.


Definitely want to kill the Sugar Dragon! :)

Good luck to you guys as well. How is the day going so far?


I'm on the west coast so I haven't had lunch yet. For breakfast I had sausauges (they are organic and don't seem to have sugar) and an apple. I didn't eat any veggies, so I need to fix that.


For lunch I'm going to have a salad with homemade salad dressing (this is a first for me, to make my own) and a can of tuna.


For dinner -- well, I haven't planned it yet, but I have a lot to eat at home. I know I need to get much better at meal planning. I'm totally not a planner.

I started today, too! Kind of an accident starting on the first day of the month, but coolio. We got this!


I usually eat pretty darn clean. My biggest obstacles are going to be alcohol (what's a football game without a cold beer?) and sushi (that's our family date night every week - and yes, I know sashimi is an option, but what's sushi without sake? - refer to obstacle number one). I'm not an alcoholic by any stretch :P but alcohol is socially significant for me.  


Post-workout "treat" - 3 slices compliant turkey and 1/2 pear

Breakfast - 3 9-minute eggs, 1/4 sweet potato (about 1/4 cup), squash, dried porcini mushrooms and a giant handful of spinach, sauteed in coconut oil.

Lunch - leftovers from last night (Enchilada Casserole - I make it myself and I promise it's compliant. Mexican is not a comfort food for me, so I'm not worried about the psychological effects) topped with olives, big bowl of broccoli sauteed in coconut oil with lemon juice and 1/2 pear.


Redchickn, I want to hear what you come up with for dinner! I'm up in the air on dinner tonight, too.  :wub:
