hortona Posted January 4, 2017 Share Posted January 4, 2017 Hi everyone! Brand new to Whole30. Brand new to healthy eating, really! Boyfriend and I started on 1/2/17 and I am trying to figure things out as I go along. I am super excited about doing this and SO happy that my boyfriend is willing to participate. We are junk addicts - pizza, burgers, cheese, alcohol, fried ANYTHING...and we are feeling the effects of it all! Our goal is to feel better, learn to make better choices, get rid of the cravings, and hopefully lose a little weight along the way. With that said, I am not sure I am doing this right just yet...so I would love some feedback on my meals so far. Day 1: (off work) 10a - 2 scrambled eggs with 1/2 sliced apple 3p - 6 oz salmon with 1c broccoli 8p - leftover roast beef with 1c sauteed zucchini & peppers, and mashed butternut squash Day 2: 8:30a - 2 HB eggs, 1/3c blackberries. Should I add veggies and small amount of fat here and skip the fruit? 12:30p - 6 oz salmon with lemon and capers, 1c asparagus, handful of raw almonds 5p - Cashew Larabar because I was hungry 8:30p - ~1c Skinny Taste No Bean Turkey and Sweet Potato Chili (http://www.skinnytaste.com/no-bean-turkey-and-sweet-potato-chili/) Day 3 has been fairly similar to Day 2, switched blackberries from strawberries and asparagus for green beans/broccoli. Will have a pork chop with cauliflower rice and a roasted red pepper for dinner. As I type this, I realize I am very light on veggies so will definitely work on that. I don't mind eating the same thing for about 3 days in a row and then try to switch it up as I don't have a ton of time to cook during the week. One thing that is going to be challenging: I drive about 1.5 hours every other day after work to go to the barn (to ride my horse) and don't get home until ~8:30pm. On the opposite days, I work out around 5:30p so those days are a bit easier to manage. Any suggestions for meal timelines would be greatly appreciated. I usually wake up around 6:45, get to the office around 8:15 (I like to eat breakfast at my desk - yikes!), can eat lunch any time, and leave the office between 4:30p-5:30p. Thank you in advance!!
