His and Hers, another round


Recommended Posts

Well, my husband actually brought up the idea of doing a whole 30. I have done several rounds and he did the first one with me.  I don't think I fed him nearly enough that time but I have learned a lot since then. So I had been thinking about it and if he wants in this is it.  We started today and will see how it goes.

I hope to get more energy, improve aches and pains, improve sleep and skin. Weight loss is always good and I think that is my husbands main motivation but he does know better.

We started today

Meal#1 applegate hot dogs and homemade slaw (trader joes kolerabi mix, homemade mayo, pineapple, almonds)

M#2 chicken apple sausage, slaw, hash (sweet potato, white potato, onion, mushrooms)

M#3 not sure, maybe a stirfry, or meatza

ok...well we delayed our official start until today.  We stayed mostly clean over the weekend but I just wasn't quite prepared enough.  Today it will stick

Day 1

M1: fried eggs, hashbrowns, bacon

M2: chicken salad made with grapes, almonds and homemade mayo over a large salad of baby greens, spinach, yellow squash and olives. Have tessamaes creamy ranch too if I need it.  Sent husband with same salad but with pulled pork instead of protein salad, also sent him grapes.

m3: him two applegate chicken apple sausages, steamed carrots with ghee and sautéed figs with chopped pecans

Me: tinned fish, olives, potatoes

Day 4

M1: eggs baked in Portobello mushroom caps (not sure why but this was awful. Great concept but we both hated it) he ate about half and a chomp stick.  I age two hard boiled eggs whites(just couldn't stomach the yokes not sure why) two cups of chicken broth.  I am fighting not wanting to eat so I am doing my best to struggle through it. I have been here before and know it will pass. I am eating as much as I can

M2: HIm salad with pulled pork.  Me: tuna with mayo apple and pecan plus avocado and sea snax

I hate when all food turns my stomach and the thought of eating is just horrible even when the food tastes good
