A Newbies Day 1

Becca Smith

Recommended Posts

I'm taking the plunge and comitting to the Whole 30 lifestyle today! It's my Day 1 and I feel completely unprepared. My fridge is completely empty, except for the eggs and veggies that survived the clean-out yesterday. I was sad to part with my greek yogurt, cheeses, chocolate and left-over belgium waffles that I had made! I probably should have spent yesterday planning my meals for the week and going to the grocery story so I could start today strong, but spending the afternoon at a vineyard with friends aided that procrastination!

So, I am unprepared, not the best way to start a Day 1, but I won't let that be an excuse! Here's to hoping I don't cheat today and make it through all 30!!!

I would love to hear suggestions for breakfast on-the-go, and lunches that pack well, since I'm a teacher and get a very short lunch break!

Well, you've got eggs and veggies so you can make it thru today! My favorite breakfast on the go is Egg Muffins, they are so satisfying and travel well. I'm also addicted to a cobb type salad with hard boiled eggs, avocado and roasted chicken...lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes for lunches as well as turkey lunch meat roll-ups or lettuce wraps with guacamole!

Congrats! You are off to a great start. What I do often, is cook extra the night before, or, pre-cook a few things so they can just be tossed together. I always have a large tub of mixed greens for salads, and pre-cook yams and meat, so I can just add a few bells and some nuts and I have something in 3 mins. Hope that helps!
