Whole30 Week 1!

Saturday, November 16, 2013

Whole30 week 1 has flown by! I actually haven't gotten any sugar withdrawal headaches or anything like that yet! So far eating like this has been super easy, I just need to make sure that I plan ahead and either have food prepared or know where to buy compliant foods! 

I also haven't been snacking which is super weird for me! I've been totally satisfied between meals though which is great! 

Day 1-  
Breakfast- 1 un-pictured hard boiled egg, 2 over easy eggs, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and raw macadamia nuts
Lunch- Salad with diced chicken , diced apple, chopped walnuts, lettuce, s&p, dressed with balsamic and olive oil
Dinner- Roast chicken w/ carrots, parsnips, and green beans. The green beans were home grown but I think I picked them too late because they were super bean-y so I didn't eat them. 
Snack- After dinner I baked up some of the chicken skin because I had seen it on Food Renegade! I ate some raspberries too! 

Day 2-
Breakfast- 1 hard boiled egg, tomatoes, yellow peppers, and half an avocado
Lunch- Egg salad made with mustard and chopped sun dried tomatoes, half an avocado, red peppers, apple w/ sunflower seed butter, and a cup of homemade chicken broth
Dinner- 5 minute chicken (made with ghee) w/ 2 servings of steamed broccoli, red peppers, and some raw macadamia nuts 

We made homemade mayonnaise! It took a little bit of time but it was so easy! I'm never going back to buying mayonnaise! 

I had a dream that night that I cheated on Whole30! I felt so guilty when I woke up! 

Day 3-
Breakfast- 3 eggs w/ half an avocado and a kiwi
Lunch @ Preschool- Chicken salad on spinach w/ guacamole and grapes 
Dinner- 5 Salsa Chicken lettuce wrap tacos w/ avocado and salsa

I made ghee! It was so easy! Another thing I won't ever buy again! 

Day 4-
Breakfast- 2 deviled eggs w/ a bit of leftover chicken salad and raspberries
Lunch- We went to Whole Foods to buy meat so for lunch I had salad bar. Mixed greens topped with tuna, shredded beets, shredded carrots, a bit of the mushroom marinade w/ cucumbers and tomatoes
My salad just wasn't that great so I only ate half of it and then went and bought a Larabar.
Dinner- Paleo Chili (I mixed a few recipes together to make my own, once I try it again and perfect it I will post the recipe) and roasted sweet potatoes with cinnamon ghee. 

The sweet potatoes with the cinnamon ghee were AMAZING! 

Day 5-
Breakfast- I was late for an appointment so I had to eat in the car. 3 scrambled eggs w/ onions and salsa
Lunch- Chicken salad on spinach w/ grapes
Dinner- Date night in! Steak (That I overcooked.. oops!), Butternut Squash with Kale (topped with pecans), and tomatoes

I made homemade coconut butter but is super solid :( I'll probably try to scoop it out of the jar and blend it all up again

Day 6-
Breakfast- 2 deviled eggs w/ leftover squash
Lunch- It was a date day for Brian and I to the teacher supply store so we stopped at Chipotle on the way home and ate salads with carnitas, salsa, and guacamole
Dinner- Today was a sleepy day so we all overslept at nap time and I didn't get to make my planned dinner. Last minute dinner eggs to the rescue! with tomatoes, 1/2 an avocado, pomegranates, and some black grapes. 

Also, you should run to Trader Joe's and buy this tea before it is gone for the season! Brian and I can't get enough!
