It’s kind of amazing that I’m almost to Day 30 of this elimination diet. The amazing part is not even how great the results have been for my mind and my body; it’s just amazing that this Whole30 is so do-able. I mean, aside from the fact that it can get a little boring, it is so natural to eat this way. I’ve noticed very large changes in many parts of my body, and I’m liking it.
For breakfast on Day 26 & 27: chocolate coconut chew Larabar with a large decaf latte w/ unsweetened almond milk; ground buffalo w/ grapfruit
For lunches: 2 salads from The Cup (romaine, tomato, red onion, avocado, olive oil & balsamic vinegar), a coconut larabar & an apple w/ almond butter; a chocolate coconut chew larabar, a few potato chips (oil approved), greens beans, avocado & a baby banana
For dinners: sweet potato, cilantro, ground buffalo & avocado – both nights, actually. This is seriously one of the best meals ever.
Tip: One of the most difficult things about this past month has been grocery shopping. Seeing certain brands at the store actually triggers a craving that I would have never had otherwise and sometimes I become irritable. I highly suggest making a list and getting-in-and-out of the grocery store when you’re on the Whole30. I do wonder if this happens mostly to me, or if it’s common because – like I’ve been saying – I haven’t really had any cravings. I feel in control about 98% of the time, and then I go grocery shopping or my sister brings a box home from my favorite pizza place in town. It’s at that point that my body goes a little bonkers.
