Hi praxisproject, I started yesterday as well (I'm in Sydney, so it was the 3rd!). I've done many w30s, but have never logged my food. Maybe this one I should try it!!

Good luck with your w30 :)

I didn't eat enough my first Whole30 - first few days, it makes such a difference!

 

If you feel tired, or have a headache or feel frazzled, add some sweet potato to every meal :)

 

Note to self: My headache was gone after breakfast, eat enough starch.

Another Aussie here, I'm in Adelaide and on Day 24. Where did you find the spaghetti squash? I don't think I've ever heard of it - does it go by another name here? All the best.  :)

Welcome :) timetochange is also in Adelaide, just started W30.

 

They look like this: https://www.google.com/search?site=&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1920&bih=955&q=spaghetti+squash

 

Sometimes they're more yellow, sometimes more beige. 

The current ones I have are small, which I've never seen before, one whole one would be about right for a meal, I bought about 6-8 I think.

 

They're hard to find. My local asian veggie grocer has them regularly now, they've become quite popular locally. 

I know people have found them in Sydney & Melbourne, not sure about Adelaide. You might want to ask in the Sourcing Good Food thread for Australia.

 

The big ones here often have this label on them:

http://paleoaustralia.com/2012/02/paleo-meatball-stew-with-spaghetti-squash/

 

People who eat low carb often get it, as it's lower in starch than things like pumpkin and sweet potato.

 

I like it because it can be twirled on a fork, like zoodles (zucchini noodles made with a spiraliser), but you make it by baking in the oven. It's also really tasty with pulled pork and hot sauce.

You're doing great! Thanks for the info about the spaghetti squash, I need to do some investigating. I recently bought a tool to make zoodles and lurve them.

Day 10 - Wednesday

 

Feeling: Supercharged! :D

 
Breakfast
 

Non-template (no kitchen - unusual day)

  • Paleo Forage with Hazelnut/Macadamia milk
  • Coffee with Hazelnut/Macadamia milk
  • Supplements

Lunch

 

OMG completely forgot to eat it!  :o I only remembered when I remembered I forgot to eat dinner!

 

Dinner
 

Nearly forgot dinner too, was really not hungry today!

Could easily have gone to bed without but since I missed lunch, thought this would be a bad idea  :ph34r: 

  • Roasted Chicken wings & drumsticks
  • 300g baby kale cooked in homemade organic chicken fat
  • Mango

Snacks

  • 2 x Coffee with nut milk
  • Mineral Water

Note to self: today's nut milk was made with a single date in the batch (usually I use none), could this have altered my hunger? Usually sugar makes me more hungry, not less. Weird.  :blink:

Day 15 - Monday

 

Feeling: Good, but funny tummy (too much curry paste I think)  :o

 
Breakfast
 

This was too much (big & hot) for breakfast and having had it last night too, too much curry paste (nightshades)

  • Beef Red Curry with Ayam Coconut Milk
  • Butternut Pumpkin
  • Shanghai Bok Choy
  • Supplements

Lunch

Tummy still funny - not template but compliant

Dinner

  • Asian Soup
    • Pork mince, garlic scapes, chicken stock (soft pack - bought), toasted sesame oil (flavouring, not to cook with), coconut aminos. Could have used double the quantity of scapes.

Note to self: This soup was really nice, and must remember the recipe as this is a lovely asian dish without any nightshades at all! :ph34r: Probably a waste of bone broth from a flavour point of view, but I didn't have any left anyway.

 

Extra note: Silly me, I haven't been reading my Whole30 emails (I have them archived from last time), so today I remembered and read Day 15 with the video :D Need to remember to do this for tomorrow!
