My Whole 30 Adventure- Week 2

Today I am sharing my 2nd week on Whole 30.
What I ate, the highs, the lows, the whatever…

Day 8:

What I ate:

Breakfast: sunny side up eggs, and a banana

Lunch: the girls and I were running errands this day so I grab a salad topped with chicken from McDonald’s and brought it home and used my own ranch dressing on it.

Dinner: Slow Cooker Pork Roast, brussel sprouts, and carrots

Snacks: almonds and pistachios
Drank water all day

I am getting to the point where my meals are holding me longer. I still get slightly hungry after dinner so that is normally when I have my snack. I also feel like my sweet tooth is going away. Haven’t noticed a swing in energy yet OR that foods taste differently. People on Whole 30 always talk about their tastes buds coming alive and I can’t say that is happening.

Day 9:

What I ate:

Breakfast: sunny side up eggs with grapes and strawberries
Lunch: Leftover pork roast on a baked potato with red onions and ranch dressing on top. Then carrots and ranch dressing for dipping.
Dinner: Spaghetti Squash boat- topped with ground beef, onions, garlic, and Whole 30 compliant spaghetti sauce.
Snacks: banana
Drank water all day.
I slept TERRIBLY the night before. Couldn’t fall asleep or stay asleep very well. Was in a not so good mood as well. Also, my face is starting to break out really bad right now. Assuming this is the “gets worse before it gets better phase” but regardless it still stinks.

Day 10:
What I ate:
Breakfast: Omelet with spinach, bacon, and red onion. Bacon on the side.

Lunch: Travis grabbed us some lunch while he was out and I forgot to take a picture… grilled chicken tenders and fries.

Dinner: Grass fed steak, carrots, and green beans

Snacks: no snack today
Drank water all day

We were busy finishing up our bathroom and I had to run to the grocery store so it was a pretty good day. I slept horribly again the night before so that totally sucks along with my face breaking out. No added energy but it probably doesn’t help I haven’t slept well in two days.
Day 11:
What I ate:
Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs, strawberries, and chicken and apple sausage

Lunch: We were busy in the bathroom finishing it up and I was cleaning it so I didn’t really eat lunch. I did eat some cashews and 2 hard boiled eggs before running out to the store.

Dinner: Baked chicken breasts, zucchini, and red potatoes with ghee

Snacks: Banana sprinkled with cinnamon, mango

Drank water all day

I was a little irritated today. Not sure why.  Slept better last night. Still no change in energy or tastes in food.

Day 12:

What I ate:
Breakfast: Sunny side up eggs with banana, strawberries, and blueberries

Lunch: Left over pork roast, sliced cucumber, and 2 hard boiled eggs

Dinner: Cauliflower fried rice… with chicken breast, peas, red pepper, carrots, egg, onion, garlic

Snacks: grapes and a banana

Drank water all day

Second week of working out again was today. Did pretty well but still am not noticing more energy. My face is starting to clear up a little. I haven’t noticed a change in my tastes buds BUT I am trying, eating, and some what enjoying foods that I wouldn’t in the past. I never eat blueberries and I tried them after shopping the other day and then as you notice, they were part of my breakfast. Same with the mango from yesterday. So perhaps something is happening to them.

Day 13:

What I ate:

Breakfast: over easy eggs with strawberries and grapes

Lunch: Baked potato topped with ghee and left over meat from the stuffed cabbage I made last week and then ranch dressing. Along with carrots and ranch dressing for dipping.

Dinner: Spaghetti Squash stir fry… red onions, carrots, chicken, garlic, and broccoli and a tiny bit of organic beef broth and ghee to coat the noodles.

Snacks: almonds

Drank water all day

I am pretty happy with the fact that my sweet tooth is pretty much gone. Not gonna lie that I wouldn’t eat a piece of chocolate in a heartbeat but the horrible urge to eat something is behind me. YAY!

Day 14:

What I ate:

Breakfast: sunny side up eggs with strawberries and bananas (Can you tell I enjoy these eggs? They are fast and easy which is good in the morning having to deal with the girls.)

Lunch: Left over pork roast tacos in a romaine lettuce wrap, topped with red onions and ranch dressing. Carrots and ranch on the side.

Dinner: Beef stew… beef, small red and gold potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, peas. This kinda turned more into a beef and vegetable soup since I couldn’t use flour to thicken it but it didn’t really matter, it was just as good!

Snacks: Pistachios and kiwi (another fruit I wouldn’t have eaten before this)

Drank water all day. Tried a new fruit juice.

YAY! I have survived 2 weeks of the Whole 30!
Not saying it has been easy but it isn’t horrible. I need to work on dinners or at least the time we are eating dinner. We ate pretty late a lot this week but I can work on that. Again, thrilled the sweet tooth faded away. Still haven’t noticed energy boost but whatever. I have noticed an ever so slight change in my body so I am curious to see what will happen by day 30.
