Whole30 Week 4 – We’re almost there!

Hey friends! I hope everyone had a great week. This week has pretty easy Whole30 wise, I’m not really craving anything, and I’ve felt better than I did during the first 3 weeks. The finish line is in sight! Normally, after the 30 days of […]

Whole30 – Week 3 Are we done yet?

Hi friends! I have to be honest, this week on Whole30 was super rough for me. I am so ready to be done! At this point during my last Whole30, I was feeling great, both mentally and physically. I was sleeping better, not getting tired […]

Whole30 – Week 2 eats

Whole30 – Week 2 eats

Hey guys!

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.

Making anything interesting tonight for dinner?

Happy 2018! Last March I convinced Jeff to try Whole30 with me. I’m a sugar fiend and love it almost as much as I love Michigan football.  But all the sugar I was eating wasn’t serving me any purpose. After doing a ton of research […]
