MissMamey's First Whole 30 March 1-March 31


Recommended Posts

Breakfast was scrumptious, I had an onion, mushroom, and avacado egg scrambler that kept me full until lunch time! I also made myself some chamomile, lavender, herbal tea and it was the perfect topper to my breakfast.

For lunch, I was planning on making some asparagus, and putting canned tuna in some fresh salad greens, and heirloom tomatoes, with olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing but when I went to get the tuna I read the lable (just to make sure) and it said that it contained soy in it. :angry: Good thing I checked. I ended up winging it and remembered that I had some smoked salmon in the fridge and wrapped that around my asparagus, and just ate the other half of my avacado from breakfast and a handfull of baby heirloom tomatoes. I think it turned out better than my original lunch idea!

I have a feeling that lunches are going to be hard from me. It is Lent, and we follow the old rules (Only 3 meals a day with no snacking in between. Monday-Thursday, and Saturday you are only allowed meat once a day, Friday is no meat at all, and Sundays are a break from the diet rules....side not, fish and seafood are not considered meat). I am kind of worried about how to get my protein allotment. Are eggs and fish going to be enough?

If you can eat red meat once per day except Fridays and eggs and fish freely on other days, you can experience a good Whole30. I would encourage you to go for a variety of fish, shellfish, squid, crab, etc.

I am on Day 6 and going strong. I am enjoying finding new recipes to try out. Meals are definitely not boring anymore. I have found a new favorite vegetable....brussel sprouts :) I have made some homemade mayo and some homemade ghee and then made a bonebroth. I feel like I have more energy and the bloating I had been experiencing has now all but gone away. I have already had people telling me I look thinner and my clothes feel looser on me. Tell me again, why I didn't start this sooner, lol?

The only "complaint" that I would say I had is the amount of time I am in the kitchen. It seems like everytime that am finished cooking something and clean up the mess, it is time to go back and cook again. Next week I am really going to work on prep work to minimize the amount of time I need to be in the kitchen.

Very little cravings. I have had some dreams about food, and if I hear someone talk about a dessert, my body tries to tell me that I NEED it, but it has not been an overwhelming feeling, which I am glad about, and I have been able to ignore.

I am very confident about my outcome and that I will have no slip ups! The healthier feeling is motivation enough!
