Whole30 – Week 2 eats
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and got a chance to relax, read, run, watch a little football or anything else you do to unwind.
Week 2 of Whole30 has come to a close and I’m feel really great. Of course I still want a piece of bread, but I’m feeling really good about my lack of sweets right now, and I’m almost over the craving hump. A lot of people say day 10 and 11 are the hardest but I was so busy at work those days I hardly had time to blink, let alone think about what I wanted to eat so I actually made it through those days fairly easy.
Monday – Wednesday = Our standard breakfast egg bake (recipe here).
Thursday/Friday = Omelet – with spinach, tomatoes, and salsa.
Saturday/Sunday = Sweet potato breakfast bowl from Peanut Butter Runner. I added raisins, unsweetened coconut flakes and crushed walnuts to mine. It doesn’t look super pretty but trust me it’s really good.
Monday – Tuesday = Salads (spinach, tomatoes, carrots, peppers, beets, chicken, walnuts – with olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing)
Wednesday – Thursday = Cauliflower fried rice with chicken (this had carrots and celery and I added tomatoes and green onions after baking) – I got the recipe from @pretenditsadonut’s Instagram.
Friday – Sunday = Salads (spinach, beets, carrots, tomatoes, hard-boiled egg, one smoked, chicken sausage from Trader Joe’s – make sure to check your labels only some of the TJ’s sausages are compliant).
Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday = Fish (Salmon, swordfish, and shrimp) with veggies (parsnips, beets, brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, peppers).
Wednesday = Chili (ground beef, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, veggie stock).
Saturday = Chicken with sun-dried tomatoes, kale, pesto and green beans.
Sunday = Acorn squash with chicken sausage, apple, and spinach. Jeff tried something different for this meal and I thought it was really good.
