emidrex Posted May 23, 2015 Share Posted May 23, 2015 Day6 of my first whole30 I still woke up with a bit of a headache and I am on day6!!! I have been off dairy for the last 8 months since my 10 months old was diagnosed with dairy intolerance (I am still breastfeeding) so I thought I wouldn't have so much withdrawal symptoms!!! Anyway so far so good well as good as it can be. Day1 and 2 were pretty tough as I did not eat enough and did not snack which is not the best idea when you are feeding a 24 pounds baby boy, 3 to 4 times a day. On day 3 I increased my meal portions and it seemed to have done the trick. I also have an afternoon snack between lunch and dinner and it will usually consist of either nuts or avocado slices or leftover meat and raw cauliflower. One good thing about the whole30 is that it gives you the tools to become adventurous with your food and come up with new recipes. Since day 1 I had some awesome meals and some not so great (I made some turkey and coconut meatballs which were tasty but pretty dry!!) Here is my first log starting on day 6 Meal 1: 2 eggs omelet (cooked in coconut oil) with leftover spaghetti squash in tomato sauce, three avocado slices and a big slice of watermelon. It was delicious, the spaghetti squash was such a good find, I never cooked it before!! My son and daughter loved it too!!! Meal 2: Roast chicken, homemade guacamole and a big salad with lots of greens, tomatoes, some pumpkin seeds and sliced apples. Seaweed and mint green tea. Meal 3: We are having sweet potatoes harsh brown in coconut oil, with homemade guacamole, prawns, mango and salad I haven't had a snack yet as I am still full from lunch...tbc...I have some leftover roast chicken... Looking at my menu there is a lot of avocado in it!!! I am doing it on my own but my kids and husband eat whatever I am making when we are together so it makes it easier for me to stick to compliant food :-) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
