Hiker*Girl Posted April 21, 2016 Share Posted April 21, 2016 I don't know if I should post this in Meal Planning or in Troubleshooting.... My husband and I are on Day 21 of our first Whole30. We're liking the program a lot so far - enjoying cooking together and trying new recipes, no real cravings, sleeping better. However, I'm not necessarily feeling the "tiger blood" effect yet, and have had digestive issues all along (although this has somewhat improved by taking digestive enzymes and probiotics). However, the last few days I've been very fatigued and emotional (depressed). Also, I'm concerned that I'm actually eating too much protein and/or fat (not worried about veggies). Here is what I've had for the last few days: Yesterday: Meal 1 (we have this every day): Layered in a bowl - 1 big handful of raw spinach 2 eggs fried in coconut oil 1/2 chicken apple sausage, sliced and sauteed in coconut oil along with julienned peppers 1/4 avocado 2-3 large spoonfuls of homemade "yum sauce" drizzled over the top, made from compliant mayo, peppers, cilantro, dates, spices 1-2 cups coffee w/coconut milk, cacao powder, and a little coconut oil Meal 2: 1-2 cups spaghetti squash 1 link spicy chicken Italian sausage and a handful of mushrooms sauteed in coconut oil 3 large spoonfuls Whole30 pesto sauce Meal 3: 4 oz grass-fed ground beef 1 cup steamed broccoli 1 cup roasted butternut squash 2-3 large spoonfuls of "yum sauce" (see above) Tuesday: Meal 1: same as above Meal 2: Egg salad made from 2 hard boiled eggs, compliant mayo, compliant mustard, compliant dill pickles Handful of baby carrots Meal 3: Shredded crockpot chicken made with compliant peperoncinos Mixed greens (spinach and baby lettuces) 4 cherry tomatoes Compliant mango chili salsa Guacamole 2-3 large spoonfuls of homemade avocado cilantro dressing Cholula Monday: Meal 1: same as above Meal 2: Two big scoops of chicken salad made with compliant mayo, toasted pecans, juice sweetened cranberries and celery Handful of baby carrots Meal 3: 1-1/2 cups spaghetti squash 3 large spoonfuls complaint pesto (made with cashews) Spicy Italian chicken sausage sauteed in coconut oil Any insights or advice you can offer would be great.
