DrawMonkey Posted January 10, 2018 Share Posted January 10, 2018 I began Whole 30 out of a need to improve my eating habits, meal prep skills, and snacking addictions. I've tried other methods in the past (points points points) with varying success. After reading the 'It Starts with Food' book and talking to a friend who successfully completed her own Whole 30 I made yesterday, January 9th my start date. I'd like to lose weight; I'd like to learn how to find healthy substitutes to food; I'd like to rely on snacks less and wholesome filling meals more. Day 1 (this was a HARD day... I was driving home from a trip where we stayed longer than planned... my options were horribly limited) B: Sumo orange, coffee, 3 dates, Lara Bar (I didn't eat all at once.. orange and dates before we left, Lara Bar when I realized that wasn't enough food) L: Baked Apple Chips (forgive me! I saw the "no chips" post long after the fact but I was desperate!) and handful of sunflower seeds (Sheetz did not have any better options than these, I swear), Tea D: Thai Chicken Curry over Sautéed Zoodles: I used Ghee (first time tried, LOVE), Thai red chili paste, almond milk, and coconut milk for the curry. Veggies included the noodles, shallots, yellow/orange peppers, and snow peas. AH-MAZING Day 2 (I'm doing a "yoganity" workout 3x a week, part yoga part "dear god why did I sign up for this" high impact workout class is 6a-7a) Pre Workout: small mix of blackberries, strawberry slices, pineapple chunks (perhaps 3 of each type of fruit) in a bowl w cacao nibs, 3 spoonfuls of coconut milk and coconut flakes (this was like an unexpected treat! I saw a version of this online and didn't think I'd suck it down like I did) B: Sweet potato mash, made with almond milk and ghee. Topped with coconut flakes. Coffee L: Huge salad with iceberg lettuce, peppers, heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, and a nice filet of salmon (cooked in coconut oil). Dressing with sesame oil and vinegar, topped with a sprinkle of chia seeds. Tea D: Planning to have the leftover Thai Curry! (any feedback at all on this would be helpful; like many of you, I'm new and shiny and I want to make the right food decisions) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
