cdebruhl Posted June 13, 2015 Share Posted June 13, 2015 Hi there, I'm on day 6 of whole30 and I have up'd my meat intake significantly. Before whole30, I was eating pretty clean (mostly vegetables and fruit) with beans and eggs as my most common protein source. I would eat meat probably 3-4 times a week. Since starting whole30, I've been eating meat during two meals (usually chicken, a little red meat) and my stomach has felt awful almost all week. I don't necessarily blame the meat for the stomach aches but feeling sick doesn't make digesting steak any easier. Also, my grocery bill is much higher with buying more meat. My doctor warned me about buying meat treated with hormones since I'm trying to correct a hormone imbalance with whole30. Pastured and organic meat is terribly expensive for this 25 year old, but it seems counterproductive to eat the cheaper alternative if that could mess up my hormones while I'm trying to fix them. The same goes with fish. I love fish and shellfish but I'm landlocked in Texas and six tilapia fillets runs me $18. Besides eating eggs at every meal, does anyone have any suggestions for vegetable only meals that fit into whole30? Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
