Complete Whole30 Food Diary

Our Whole30 Journey 

Mike & I just finished our first round of the Whole30 (I say "1st round" because we'll probably do it at least once a year). I purposefully didn't post anything about the Whole30 until we completed it because I know that everyone has opinions and advise that they're oh-so-ready to hand out...even if it's unasked for. What is the Whole30? It's pretty simple in theory: it's giving up anything but whole foods for 30 days. It's a "short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, calm systemic inflammation and put an end to unhealthy cravings, habits and relationships with food." We ate a LOT of meat, veggies and fruit, NO grains, dairy or alcohol.

Here's my food diary from our month of clean eating:

Day one
Breakfast 10:45 - 1 square veggie egg casserole, 1 square sausage egg casserole & 1 mug coffee (black)

Lunch 12:30 - 1 bowl beef stew, 3 slices green bell pepper, 32 oz water

Day one - so far I've not craved anything that I "can't" have. I did eye a coke zero this morning but quickly had a cup of black coffee that sufficed. No headaches (yet). I've felt full & not had the urge to snack. I am thirsty for anything but water though. (3pm) 

5:15 large unsweet tea from McDonald's (no sweetener) 

6:25 two handfuls of walnuts 

Dinner 7 - 1/2ish# ground turkey meat with poultry seasoning, mustard, lettuce, green beans w slivered almonds, apple with almond butter & water w lemon *Did some research. & discovered that almond butter isn't actually part of the whole30 -- back in the fridge it goes!  

8:55 almost 2 hrs after a good sized dinner my belly is grumbling a little. Decaf coffee is brewed - will have a mug & a handful of roasted & salted pecans. *Did this & still went to bed feeling hungry. Also-used chocolate almond milk as creamer .. Technically breaking the rules, but I'm trying to use up what's in the fridge & not be wasteful. 

Just before bed I took my chewy multivitamin & thought I'd share w Mike since he "needed" something sweet...his mouth literally salivated when I gave them to him. After checking the ingredients they have corn syrup in them. Seriously!? Gross. No more using this brand of chewy vitamins. 

Day two
Breakfast 8 - 1 egg, 1 handful of walnuts, 1 mug coffee w chocolate almond milk

Snack - 1 mug coffee w chocolate almond milk & 2 handfuls salted pecans 

Working out @ 1pm 
*felt good...but can definitely tell I've not worked out in almost 1.5 weeks.
*weighed @ gym:131  pounds 

Lunch 2:30 - 1 grilled chix breast w poultry seasoning, 1/2 bell pepper, kale salad w craisins, walnuts & oil & vinegar

3:30 - large black decaf coffee (DD)

Day 1 & 2 I've woken up hungry (like stomach growling...reminds me of when i came home from the trail) when I've gotten up to nurse @ 4 & 5 am (this is typical) 

Day three
Breakfast 8:00 - 3 slices thick bacon, 2 scrambled eggs (cooked in olive oil) with salt & pepper, 1 mug coffee w coconut milk

12:00 - small handful of salted pecans 

Lunch 12:45 - 1/2 Greek salad w grilled chix from Zoe's w oil & vinegar, 1/2 apple, lemon water & small handful of salted pecans 

4:40 - 3 large strawberries 

1/4 cup pistachios 

Dinner 8pm - 1 hamburger with lettuce bun & mustard, zucchini & squash, mixed fruit, apricot toffee, unsweet tea  

Thoughts: Would REALLY like a diet drink now! Other than that this Whole30 is going well. I feel limited by the foods we have in the house - gotta expand what we have on hand next time I go to the store! 

Day four
Breakfast 7:45 - 2 scrambled eggs cooked in coconut oil, 2 slices bacon, 1/2 avocado, 1 mug coffee w coconut milk 

Throughout morning -- 1.5 mugs coffee w coconut milk & water

10pm - coffee w coconut milk & 1 handful walnuts 

*Hallelujah! Week 1 is over & we're still alive! (Joking) We've both realized that the whole30 isn't very conducive for social gatherings (lunch after church, birthday dinners, etc.) but, it's only for a month-so it's totally doable. I think we've already learned better eating habits in these short (don't kill me Mike for calling them short!) 7 days - hopefully the next 23 days will ingrain them into our brains as something we can carry out once this is over!

Day eight
Breakfast 8:15 - kits peanut bar 
*going back to bed ... had a weird night of sleep (or lack there of) last night, so while Amos is still asleep I'm going to sleep too.

Mike & I both decided that it was so nice to not feel obligated to get dessert as we always do since it wasn't even an option. We both felt completely satiated with no bread before our meal and no dessert afterwards!

Also, I feel like I'm almost back in the Paleo mindset 100% of the time. (Dessert wasn't on my radar tonight at all...however - I do still want diet soda!)

From about 10-12 I munched on grapes, pecans & peanut butter (peanuts & salt only) and drank coffee.

I realized tonight how little water I've had today. And how much fruit I've had (I think because I've been staying at Honey's and its more readily available than at our house...). I would still really love a diet soda! I think that's what's I'm looking forward to most.  

Mike & I talked since he's been gone about continuing to eat clean once the Whole30 is over..."to an extent." Mike will always want his pizza & I'll want my diet soda & we'll both want birthday cake on birthdays, but I know we're both making better food choices & will continue to do so. 

Side note: Mike cheated & had a piece of bread with his lunch ... & it immediately made home feel sick...(that's what he gets for being a cheater)

We both had headaches and a weird tingly / dizzy feeling after our meal tonight & like that we can tell when we've eaten something unclean that we aren't used to.
