So far so good... Day 3


Recommended Posts

My first Whole30 and so far it couldn't be going better.  I feel fantastic and cravings have already gone way down. Still waiting for the horrible headache or exhaustion that everyone keeps talking about to hit (my diet before this was horrible -- I was absolutely addicted to Diet Coke, fried foods and ice cream) but so far so good.

Day One -
Breakfast: Baked egg/vegetable/Trader Joes garlic herb chicken sausage casserole, salad with balsamic vinegar/olive oil, watermelon pieces
Afternoon snack (my breakfast was around 11, not craving lunch) - Sliced strawberries, mango, cucumber and banana with shredded coconut on top
Dinner: Zucchini noodles with Trader Joes roasted garlic pasta sauce, cut up peppers and onions, unsweetened apple sauce on the side

Day Two -
Breakfast: Leftover egg sausage casserole and banana
Lunch: Leftover zucchini pasta
Snack: That's It (100% fruit Bar), hard boiled egg
Dinner: Chicken vegetable stir fry (from Whole30 cookbook -- so good!), unsweetened apple sauce on the side

Day Three -
Breakfast: Leftover egg sausage casserole with guacamole on top, banana
Lunch: Leftover chicken vegetable stir fry, watermelon
Dinner to be balsamic salmon and roasted veggies

I recognize I am still a bit too heavy on the fruits and will cut this down as the program goes on. As mentioned above, I had a MEAN sweet tooth before this so I am doing the best I can.

A silly question but what do folks on the Whole30 to ward off garlic breath (see pasta above)? I usually reach for a breath mint which I know are big no-no's on this plan. I have a mint plant at home but of course it's not always feasible to have a few leaves with me. Should I carry toothpaste in my purse?

Thanks and best of luck to everyone else who began the Whole30 on Monday. We can do this!!

There are some breath freshening tips in this article.

The very best thing to do to get rid of a sweet tooth is actually to quit giving it sweet things. It'll suck for a few days, but in the end, eating plenty of vegetables, protein, and fat, with fruit just as an occasional thing with a complete meal, will ultimately keep you from craving sweet things.

Hi Elana,

I started on Sep 5th Monday and this is my first whole30.

The first two days were easy and I was feeling good.   The second day I had trouble falling asleep.  The last three days, I found myself doing a lot prep work and trying new recipes.  Yesterday made cauliflower puree - did not like at all and will never make it again!  Made the unami gravy - nom nom paleo - delicious.

Day 3 I woke up late this morning (very unusual) and with a headache, which I have had all day today.  Despite how I am feeling, energy was steady and all is good.

I enjoyed reading your post and your food sounds delicious!

Good luck and yes we can do it!!!!!
