New to Whole30 and On Day 5


Recommended Posts

Hello one and all!  My name is Lori and I live in North Carolina.  Today is day 5 of my husband and I doing Whole30.  We WERE doing Paleo and doing a great job until *insert dramatic music* the holidays hit.  We were doing Paleo for weight loss but are doing Whole30 for health.  If weight loss comes with it...score! 


I have read It Starts with Food and LOVED it!  There are many dog eared pages, hand written notes & highlighted lines!  It's wonderfully written!   I'm also using Whole30 Day by Day.  I'm a very visual person so that book is great for me.


For recipes I'm using a cookbook called Cook Once Eat All Week by Cassy Joy Garcia (but the recipes don't last a week LOL).  The menus are inexpensive, adaptable for whatever diet you're on and easy to follow.  I was using this cookbook when we were doing Paleo.  We have yet to have a recipe that we don't all love.


Neither of us have had a slip up (no big deal, just day 5 HA) but I am SUPER tired of water, coffee & tea.  We're sticking to no caffeine after 12:00pm which is leaving us with water for the remainder of the day (I REALLY miss having my glass of skim milk with my dinner *sniffle*).  I don't like sparkling water so that takes out a huge alternative choices.  I do drink fruit infused water but...I'm just tired of water.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

There are herbal teas with no caffeine, maybe some of those, either hot or iced? Just double check your ingredients, some teas have stevia, soy, or even gluten-containing grains like barley or rye. 

There are some whole30 mocktails that might be nice occasionally as well:  https://whole30.com/mocktails/
