I made it through week one, and am starting to feel so much better. I can already tell I’ve got less inflammation and bloat going on. I did have a few rough days – there was one day when I lost all coordination and strength about 10 minutes into my workout and there was another when I tried to make coffee without actually putting in the grounds.
But it’s getting better, and I’m about 99.9% sure this Whole30 is actually going to be a Whole60. Interested in what this crazy thing is that has me excited I forgot how to make coffee? This post right here is all you need to know.
We have a semi-quiet week. One birthday and one kiddo starting at a new school, plus a few doctor’s appointments. I’m going to continue with the following template for a while – it’s just so easy to plug in meals:
- 2 nights of soups/crockpot/slowcooker (bonus points for soups in the crockpot)
- 1 brinner (breakfast for dinner)
- 1 stir fry
- 3 nights: meat and two (meat and two veggie sides).
Whole30 Breakfast Options:
- Scrambled eggs (it’s the only way I eat them)
- Mashed butternut squash
- Chicken and apple sausage
- Blueberry “cereal” – blueberries, pecans, cinnamon, coconut flakes and coconut milk
- Leftovers (I’m trying something new with steam prepping veggies for quick stir fry’s that I’ll share if it works well for me)
- Zucchini chicken fritters
- Creamy cauliflower leek soup
- Lettuce wraps (leftover protein, avocado, tomato)
Crockpot Chicken with Gravy
Mashed Cauliflower (me – using half of the steamed cauliflower from the night before)
Mashed Potatoes (family)
Kale (trying it in the pressure cooker!)
White rice (family – soaked, then cooked with homemade chicken stock)
Cauliflower rice (me – I’ll get around to posting my method soon)
Bunless burgers with guacamole
Sweet Potato fries
Birthday party for The Girl – we’ll be grilling
The best chicken you’ll ever eat (that’s a pretty big boast for a recipe name – we’ll see!)
Whichever veggies need to be cooked!
