I’m two weeks in to Whole30 and I am going strong! Overall, I’m feeling great and still motivated to kick butt at this. I’m still documenting all of my meals, and of course I have to post them. If you missed, last week’s post, I encourage you to check it out!
Thoughts from the week:
- I still feel very focused on it, and I am not struggling at all as a whole. Yes, there are days where I want carbs and sweets. Most of the time I’ll eat fruit or a few nuts or something.
- This week, I tried to add in more vegetables and I think I did a decent job. I’ve said it before, but Greg and I aren’t huge meat eaters, so this has probably the biggest adjustment.
- I’m not sick of eggs. I actually ate eggs and egg whites all the time before Whole30.
- I’ve used my food processor more in the last two weeks than I did in the last year.
- I made some Whole30 mayo and it turned out great! Granted, we don’t really eat a lot of mayo. I made it for a potato salad, and I loved it.
- I’m not hungry and I’ve stopped thinking about food.
- This way of eating is becoming more natural and automatic to me.
Now, let’s get into what I ate the past seven days. Exciting times, people! And, of course, you get bad cell phone quality photos. I do not have time to whip out the DSLR and set up perfect lighting for these pics (even though I do love a well-lit photo… hahaha), so this is what you get.
