This was my first week on Whole 30. I feel like I have more energy, my face is starting to clear up, and I am more in tune with my body. I lost 5 pounds and I feel great. Since I am eating this way, I am able to really notice when something doesn’t work well with me. This week I discovered that pork is not for me, or my husband. We both felt a little crummy after it. It may taste good but its no good for my belly.
I decided to write down what I ate to give some meal ideas to anyone else interested in trying this out. It really is simple. Of course it is minimal, as to be expected, but its great!
Monday – Started this all out with a day of only eggs, fruit, and nuts. I had one hard boiled egg, 2 oranges, 3 cups watermelon, 1 cup pineapple, and a small container of mixed nuts.
Tuesday – After a very long Monday and little sleep, I started the day with two hard boiled eggs, an orange, and a cup of tea. I then had watermelon and a salad with grilled chicken for lunch. I had a snack of pineapple and a sweet potato with eggs for lunch. I treated myself to a hot almond milk and cocoa drink for dessert.
Wednesday – Watermelon and fried eggs for breakfast. Salad with chicken and a side of pineapple for lunch. For dinner I made some roasted chicken with squash.
Thursday- Fried eggs with a potato hash for breakfast. Salad with chicken and a side of pineapple for lunch. Sweet potato with bacon fat for dinner. Watermelon and mixed nuts for snacks.
Friday- Watermelon and a sweet potato for breakfast. Chicken tenderloins and cucumber for lunch. Half grapefruit and mixed nuts for snack. Honey chicken for dinner.
Saturday- Watermelon and mixed nuts for breakfast. Almond milk with cocoa and honey for post workout fuel. Baked sweet potato for lunch. Chicken tenders and tostones for dinner.
Sunday- Two fried eggs for late breakfast. Watermelon and cashews for snack. Roasted pork with corn on the cob for dinner.
I will continue to share some favorite meals for more inspiration throughout the rest of my Whole30 adventure.
