Last weekend was my first weekend doing the Whole30. I knew that weekends would be one of the more challenging times to follow the plan but it really helped that I wasn’t going out so I had full control over my meals. I also didn’t have as much temptation to drink:)
Over the weekend I felt like I make some steps towards really getting the hang of this Whole30 thing. I was putting together meals more easily and falling into a better eating schedule without relying as much on snacks. Honestly I also think it helped that I wasn’t running so I wasn’t starving like I usually am after a long run.
I broke down my meals by Saturday and Sunday:
Breakfast: frittata and sweet potato fried in coconut oil, black coffee
Lunch: leftover spaghetti squash with paleo meatballs and tomato sauce with spinach
Snack: gala apples with cashew butter
Post-dinner: green tea
Pre-breakfast: banana and black coffee
Breakfast: apple, zucchini, squash, and sausage hash with eggs (After I took the above picture I ended up making it into a scramble as the eggs finished cooking)
Lunch: taco salad with spinach, ground turkey, peppers, onion, cucumber, tomatoes, avocado and homemade taco seasoning
Snack: Roasted almonds with sea salt
Post-dinner: Apple chips baked in coconut oil with cinnamon (with a little melted cashew butter!)- we ate dinner much earlier so I felt like I needed to eat something else before I went to bed.
The trick was finding things we could eat over the weekend without interfering with our meal plan for the week! (Usually I don’t plan meals for the weekend other than Sunday’s dinner and we rely on eating out or eating leftovers). I think it went pretty well for not eating out at all!
Do you usually plan your meals for the weekend or just wing-it?
Do you eat differently on the weekends than during the week?
