Jane's 2nd Whole 30 #septemberwhole30


Recommended Posts

Excited for my 2nd Whole30 and to keep a log of what I eat.  Going to go back over my first log and reminisce about over a year ago.  Have been trying to find a good time to do another one since, and I'm excited about all of the social media surrounding this #septemberwhole30, so I think this is the best time.  Plus, I could REALLY use a reset.  I'm eating too much junk!

So - here we go.  Tomorrow morning starts with a veggie omelette!

Day 1 has been good so far.  Will have to work on timing meals.  We usually don't eat breakfast until almost lunch time on the weekends when we sleep in...so Meal 1 was around 12:15pm...around 6:30pm I had a mini-Meal 2...dinner will be around 9:30pm. We usually eat late.

Went shopping, did not do a big weekly prep.  My meal plan does not seem like it needs it.  Maybe I'll reconsider mid week!

Day 1

M1: 3 egg scramble with onions, tomatoes, & peppers with organic blackberries

M2: Guacamole with baby carrots

M3: Rosemary Roasted Chicken with baked sweet potato and broccoli

Hi there! I'm halfway through my 1st Whole 30, and always scouring the forums for ideas. I'm curious about your 2nd meal - it doesn't seem big enough, and doesn't have any protein?

It definitely was not big enough.  It was more of a snack.  I had breakfast around 12:30, then dinner around 9:30, so I had this snack in between.  Not the way to start the Whole30...but it was a weird day.

M1: 3 eggs with sauteed spinach and avocado - hot sauce!

M2: left over chicken with a salad and avocado - tessamae's dressing with a peach for dessert

M3: slow cooked beef barbacoa (so good!) with broccoli and tostones

Day 3

M1: 3 eggs scrambled with spinach and avocado - hot sauce! black cold brew too.

M2: left over beef with a salad and avocado - tessamae's dressing

M3: (will be) avocado chicken salad with crudite - with a peach for dessert


Felt a little fuzzy this morning, but that went away quickly.  I should really exercise when I get home!

I'll start uploading pics soon!

Day's 4 & 5, as expected, were pretty bad.  I was super grumpy & fuzzy and ended up calling out of work on Friday.  Things are much better now.  I'm not as tired as the Timeline says you'll be on Days 6 & 7, but perhaps I'm comparing how I feel to the general fatigue I felt pre-Whole30.

Here's what I've been eating:

Day 4

M1: 2 Fried Eggs with Sautéed Spinach

M2: Salad Nicoise...grilled tuna with lettuce, tomato, egg, olives, potatoes, and avocado (i subbed it for the anchovies)

M3: Thursday night football...1/3lb grass-fed beef burgers with bacon & tomato, lettuce salad, oven fries with ranch dressing I made from homemade mayo and coconut milk - yum! I allowed myself one kitchen item this whole30 and it was a mandoline, so the oven fries were thin and perfectly cut! 

Day 5 (this was a grumpy, grump day)

M1: left over burger with sauteed spinach and tomato

M2: Avocado chicken salad on bed of lettuce - added bacon bits to the chicken salad this time

M3: Ground beef green curry over zucchini noodles topped with toasted cashews - YUM

Day 6

M1: left over curry on top of steamed kale with an egg on top

M2: Salad with grilled mahi mahi from local restaurant

M3: Chili-Lime Cashew crusted cod with roasted carrots and steamed broccoli

Day 7

So far I've only had breakfast. Today is meal planning and shopping day !! $$

M1: Left over beef curry on top of steamed kale...added three slices of compliant bacon to try and up my healthy fats


I am not able to upload photos for some reason.  Check out my instagram if you want to see photos of what I'm eating.

I've been way more active on Instagram and neglecting this food journal.  Let me see if I can recap meals...

M3: Buffalo Chicken Casserole (by Paleomg) with a salad


Day 8

M1: Scrambled eggs and kale

M2: Buffalo Chicken Casserole with a salad and Tessamae's

M3: Pollo vaca frita...pulled chicken fried in a homemade mojo sauce with tostones and broccoli


Day 9

M1: Fried eggs and Kale

M2: Leftover chicken with a salad and avocado plus sweet potato bisque

M3: Lemon chicken with tostones and broccoli and avocado


Day 10

M1: Scrambled eggs and kale

M2: Lemon chicken leftovers with salad and sweet potato bisque

M3: Salmon with mashed potatoes made with coconut cream and roasted cabbage


Day 11

Reason I am writing today is because I have some deets to record that aren't so instagram friendly...Days 7 & 8 (more than?) stool was very loose, I didn't feel bad, just noticed.  Now, Day 9 - today....aaahhhh! Constipated!!! I took some Natural Calm last night, but nothing yet....getting pretty uncomfortable.  Will get some prunes (or something stronger?) on the way home today if nothing is moving...
