Since today is Wednesday is only made sense to share what I have been eating for the Whole30 so far. While it’s not much different from what I usually eat, there are a few things that have been a little challenging already.
The first is that I’m trying to not rely on snacks as much. I seem to have been more hungry than usual for some reason and my snack options feel more limited. I used to have a LARABAR (which I still will eat when I need something on the go, but the only ones we have that are Whole30 compliant are cashew cookie). I also use to bake paleo muffins but those are out for now.
The other thing I have already missed is ketchup. I switched to organic a few months ago, but it still has added sugar it’s a no-go. I don’t use it nearly as much as I used to, but it was hard eating a burger and sweet potato fries without it. I’ve also missed “dessert” but not necessarily sugar. I think I’m more into anything baked even if it’s not sweet.
So, here’s what I have been eating this week:
Day 1 Breakfast:
(6:30 am and 7:30am)
Day 1 Snack 1:
Day 1 Lunch:
Day 1 Snack 2:
Day 1 Snack 3:
(5:00 pm- before a 5:30 yoga class)
Day 1 Dinner:
Day 1 Snack 4:
Day 2 was pretty much the same with a few minor changes: added some leftover red potatoes with breakfast, had an apple instead of a pear, and no LARABAR but an earlier dinner.
Day 2 Dinner:
I made these coconut crusted turkey burgers for dinner and they were a nice change and seemed more filling than regular burgers.
I’m happy to report that Rob has done well so far too although he did accidentally drink some Nuun on Tuesday. Typically we both only drink coffee (black) and water throughout the day. I think he also misses the baked stuff after dinner but I’m sure we will get out of that habit quickly. So far I’ve been ok without wine but it’s only day 2:)
Have you ever tried the Whole30?
What are some of your go to snacks (paleo or not)?
How are you doing so far with your New Year’s resolutions or this years goals?
I’m linking up with Jenn today! Thanks for hosting #WIAW!
