Amura Posted August 12, 2019 Share Posted August 12, 2019 Time for some planning ahead and getting ready! I have decided to start on the 15th because I don't have to work on August (so I hopefully won't be feeling any side effects while back to work) and I'll be back home (so I feel more in control of what I buy/eat). GETTING TO KNOW W30 - Up until now So I'm reading The Whole30 book, and by now I realize I should have started with It starts with Food. Because I'm an stubborn person I'll finish it before I start the other one, but yeah, this is not what I was looking forward reading. Today I've told my husband about W30. He asked if I expected him and our 4yo to join me, but I said no - I'm gonna try to keep changes in the family routine to a minimum while still sharing the same meal most of the time. I think it's feasible. I've just gone thru my blog recipes to find those that are compliant and I'm afraid I've got only 18, but I believe many of the other ones are easy to fix - remove peas (I love peas!) or that spoonfull of flour to thiken the sauce and you are done. And my plans for the next few days... GETTING READY - August 13th Back home in the afternoon, unpacking and grocery shopping. I have an old little notebook at home which I think I'll use as a daily journal. I want to note down all the changes that I feel, good ol' pencil and paper feel like the better choice for a nightly self-evaluation. I will also keep this log because I feel it could be useful to plan ahead (as I'm doing now) or share some thoughts - and I may need somewhere to shout my desperation in the middle of the day (hopefully it helps me get distracted from craving!). DAY 0 - August 14th I'll start with W30-compliant breakfast already, because I love omelette and tea for breakfast. Probably toss in some carrots or a piece of fruit. We have some errands to run in the city, and we'll either eat out or at my in-laws. In any case I'll try to easy into the plan ordering a no-grain, no dairy-meal and pass on bread and choose fruit as dessert. I'll leave a potato salad ready in the fridge. DAY 1 - August 15th Let's rock the Whole30 For a few days I'll have the same plain breakfast: unsweetened tea, omelette and whatever raw veggies I have around (or potato salada leftovers if any). My cousin will be visiting, we'll have a simple lunch: roasted chicken, baked potatoes and pepper, and a simple salad. I can offer either fruit or plain yoghurt as dessert, although I'll have to stay away from the latter. For dinner I'll be eating a piece of skate which I have frozen already cooked, and the rest of the family may enjoy spaghetti - I think being the first day it won't be too hard. I'll also be making my pork loin confit, because it's good to have some already-cooked preserved meat in the fridge for those days the rest of the family has a different kind of meal. And it's time to meal plan the rest of the week! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
