January 1st - 3rd Whole30


Recommended Posts

M1: Prime rib and sauteed mushrooms, 2 over easy egg yolks (my daughter ate the whites because I have a reaction to them.), brussel sprouts with cranberry and walnut. Coffee.


Snack: Baked organic apple chips (I brought them to the movie theater this afternoon to ward off popcorn that my kids and hubby were eating!).


M2: Veggie zoodle soup with turkey breast (I thankfully froze all the leftover meat from Thanksgiving!), gingerbread spice tea.


M3: Prime rib (we had this from New Year's Eve... and it was a big roast that I made at home), steamed green beans,spring mix salad with carrot, shredded beets, broccoli, vinaigrette I made at home.  Water with lemon to drink.  


I'll probably end the night with my organic peppermint mocha tea and maybe some berries with coconut cream dollop.  :).  Maybe.... I'm kinda full!


I still can't upload pics.... I must've used all the space on my first Whole30 log....lol.

Day 2


M1: 2 chicken bratwurst sausages (Saag brand), steamed green beans, 3 tbsp serving of banana chia pudding (pureed banana, coconut milk, chia seeds).  Black coffee.


M2: Double char from The Habit, lettuce wrapped with caramelized onions, avocado, mushrooms.  Baked apple chips I brought as a side.  Unsweetened iced tea.  


Snack: I was making mushroom soup for my daughter (no cream), so I had a small bowl.  I used organic mushroom broth, mushrooms, fresh thyme, carrots, onion, celery. 


M3: Spaghetti squash w/paleo turkey kale meatballs, "fauxmato" sauce (pureed beets, carrots, celery, onion).  I am low histamine and partial AIP, so all nightshades are out.  No tomato sauce :(


1/4 pomegranate and peppermint mocha tea.

Posting for yesterday - Day 3 -  1/3/15. Oh boy, Saturday's get crazy.  LOL.  Not really, but with 3 kids, anything goes :).


M1: Chicken sausages with green beans and 2 tbsp banana chia pudding.  Black coffee.  (Same as yesterday morning!)


M2: 2 prime rib lettuce wraps with cucumber and tomatillo salsa.  1 pickle. Bowl of mushroom soup.  Tea.

Handful of raspberries after dinner with chrysanthemum tea. 


TODAY - Day 4 - 1/4/15


M1: Turkey, kale, sweet potato skillet (turkey breast), topped with avocado slices, green onion, tomatillo salsa.  Coffee. (This will also be tomorrow's breakfast, BTW).

Snack:  Handful of Bare baked fuji apple chips.  Hot tea.


M2: Chicken soup with shrimp and veggies - chinese style.  So, it's sizzling rice soup with no rice (my older son eats all that himself.... kids are good for stuff you can't eat!). 


After dinner:   1/2 pomegranate and small coffee :)


All of my pictures are on my blog (link in my signature).  They haven't booted me off for excessive picture posting yet ;)

I don't know why, but I'm bombing with my mayo lately!  I made 2 crumby batches and threw them out.  :(.  Maybe I'll have better luck tomorrow.  I'm usually not this bad.

Day 6


M1: Turkey, kale, sweet potato skillet (turkey breast), topped with avocado slices, green olives.  Coffee.


M2: Zoodles with fauxmato sauce, Chinese chicken veggie soup, St. Croix water.


Snack: Plate of fresh veggies and avocado dip (avocado, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper).  Coffee.


M3: Rubio's California Bowl with shrimp with added chicken, mango salsa, verde salsa.  No rice, no beans, no chipotle sauce, no salsa fresca (the salsa is for the sensitivity to tomatoes that I have).  Extra lettuce.  Brought along my own St. Croix water.  If you see the allergen chart, the bowl with no subs like mine has wheat, soy, milk.  With my omissions of these, and added protein and mango salsa, I am clear and compliant. 




After dinner: 1/4 pomegranate and peppermint mocha tea :)

Day 7 :) ..... and what a day it's been!


Firstly, I woke up this morning with anaphalaxis  from something I ate who knows when.  I kinda felt it start yesterday, and I knew the instant I woke up with huge swollen cracked lips.  Usually this happens with cherries, but I didn't have any cherries.  Maybe my tomatillo salsa, but I had been eating that for a while with no reactions.  So, who knows?


M1: Roasted chicken breast and pear, baked sweet potato with coconut oil and cinnamon. Coffee.


M2: 2 Applegate organic beef hotdogs, organic sauerkraut, cold sesame cucumber salad.  Water.


M3: Banana with cashew and coconut butter.  Coffee.  This was really a bad idea, because I had diarrhea not so long after I started eating this.  Needless to say, I did not finish this meal.  :wacko:


M4:  Roasted pear and chicken breast, zoodles with creamy avocado sauce (avocado, onion, garlic, walnut oil, salt - heated and tossed in pan).  Water. ...... eaten with stomach cramps.  Because I ate something stupid at meal 3!  :angry:


Usual tea after dinner.  Either peppermint mocha or gingerbread spice chai.  I love these teas so much, too bad they are seasonal.  I wish Sprouts carried them year round.... but maybe I'll see if they still have some on clearance on Friday.

Day 8:


Today was a tough one, considering that I barely had an appetite and I tried to eat.  Whatever I ate yesterday that I reacted to really did a number on me.  I guess I failed to mention that I *SHOULD* be on low histamine and/or AIP.    Maybe if I listened to my body (and the doctor), I wouldn't be in this place right now :wacko: .


M1: Leftover creamy avocado zoodles with chicken, blueberries with coconut cream (bad idea, but I had given it to my daughter at her insistence, and ate it after she didn't). Coffee.


M2: 1 green olive tuna cake.  I tried one after I made them, but I probably wouldn't have eaten anything at all. Recipe from Hold The Grain: http://meatified.com/tuna-cakes-green-olives/


M3:  Italian chicken casserole (recipe from Hold The Grain also :http://meatified.com/italian-chicken-casserole-hold-grain/).  Cup of hot organic bone broth. 


After dinner will be herbal tea, as usual.

Day 9.  Perhaps not my easiest, because I had killer sweet cravings today and a nap!  OMG, I almost caved in to the cookies I bought my kids today.... but I stayed 100% compliant on the food I bought specifically  bought for myself and hubby.  The nap made me feel a bit better. 


M1: 2 green olive tuna muffins with avocado and green onion topping.  Coffee.


M2: Italian chicken casserole and a bowl of strawberries (which really don't count because shortly after I took the pic, my daughter stole the bowl).  St. Croix sparkling water.  


*In between*  Small bowl of baked apple and plantain chips.  I was dying for a whole slice of chocolate cake. 


M3:  Crockpot Thai green curry chicken with veggies (yellow squash, carrots, onions, broccoli, gold potato), fried pineapple cauliflower "rice".  Water.


Hey, guess what?  I'm having tea tonight.  LOL.  :D

All compliant. 


M3:  Dinner at my sister in law's for my father in law's birthday.  Baked salmon and chicken wings, shaved brussel sprouts salad, golden and red beet slices. sesame green beans and asparagus.  There were other things containing cheese and she served rice, but I politely passed.  I also politely declined the birthday cake (I felt a bit rude, though).  Then I had to explain to the other guests why I wasn't having any. I had tea and raspberries instead.
