I’m on day 16 today. Ran into some pretty big deficiencies in my food choices and had to deal with those in a manner that did not involve me lying face down on the floor and crying.
You don’t know you’ve lost your coping mechanisms (like cake or Triscuits or soda or pizza) until you run into a hard spot and they’re not there. It’s like jumping and not remembering you moved the trampoline…a little jarring, and you eventually remember and stop going that way 😉
Each day during the Whole 30 process is a learning opportunity. You assess how you feel, figure out what made you feel that way and stop eating it. Our food does aid/abet a lot of our hormone production, which affects our moods…so no more cake binges for me!
Meal one: 2 eggs, half of a really beautiful heirloom tomato with pink sea salt, and Morning Mushrooms.
Meal two: a HUGE salad with yellow pepper, more heirloom tomato and hardboiled eggs.
Meal three: local wild-caught salmon (baked with a lemon slice on top…so delicious) and raw carrots and potatoes.
Meal one: Trader Joe’s Cruciferous Crunch Collection sauteed with aminos and ghee, Morning Mushrooms and two eggs.
Meal two: Big salad with walnuts, prosciutto and a chopped heirloom tomato.
Meal three: Two Applegate hotdogs with another sliced heirloom tomato (Chuck stole half of it!) and potatoes.
Meal one: 2 eggs, 3 pieces of compliant bacon, Morning Mushrooms and sauteed Cruciferous Crunch.
Meal two: one can of tuna fish over greens with carrots and some Tessamae’s with half an avocado.
Meal three: Chicken thighs cooked in ghee and coconut aminos, shiitake mushrooms, sugar snnap peas and sunflower sprouts. (THIS WAS SO SO GOOD)
Meal one: 2 Eggs, bacon, potatoes and sugar snap peas.
Meal two: Bento! Almond-stuffed olives, a hard boiled egg, berries and sugar snap peas. THIS WAS NOT ENOUGH PROTEIN. Nope.
Meal three: Chipotle. It was not a good choice – made my stomach hurt really badly. Carnitas with lettuce and green and pico salsa and TONS of guacamole.
Meal one: Mushrooms + sauteed “Healthy 8” from Trader Joe’s. 2 eggs. Potatoes. Half an avocado.
Meal two: HUGE salad with some gorgeous roma tomatoes. Leftover potatoes. 2 Applegate hot dogs. Berries. Almond-stuffed olives.
Meal three: A big salad with Tessamae’s lemon garlic dressing. One Aidell’s chicken & apple sausage and a pair of eggs.
Meal one: NOT ENOUGH FOOD. I had about a half cup of sauteed veggies, less than the usual amount of mushrooms and 2 eggs. I was still really hungry, so I had berries with some cashew butter about a half hour later.
Meal two: More salads. More hotdogs, and more potatoes. And the last of the sauerkraut, which makes me very sad.
Meal three: NomNomPaleo’s Chicken & Gravy. This is now our regular Tuesday night meal, per Wolfgang’s request 🙂 Big salads and roasted potatoes!
Meal one: Applegate hotdogs with guacamole, sauteed Cruciferous Crunch and Morning Mushrooms.
Meal two: Big salad with plum tomatoes and yellow peppers and potatoes and 2 eggs with guacamole.=
Meal three: 2 Aidell’s sausages, potatoes, big salad with chopped avocado.
What day are you on? How did you do this week?
