This time around I've got my guns loaded and I'm headed into this Whole 30 battle fully prepared.
For breakfasts I'm allowing myself a protein shake and Greek yogurt, neither of which is Whole 30 approved. As a teacher, I don't get the luxury of eating whenever I want, so I need to make sure I am full until lunch. I've been having a protein shake and Greek yogurt for breakfast for a couple weeks now and it doesn't upset my stomach and I stay full. I don't mind eggs, but they always make me nauseous when I eat them after I workout.
For lunches I plan on eating leftovers.
Here are my dinner plans for Week 1:
Sunday: Taco Salad - I made guac to go with it and it tasted great!
Monday: Crock Pot Pork Roast with fried cabbage - I could eat this all day, everyday. Chris kept saying, "This is Whole 30?! But it tastes so good..."
Tuesday: Kickin' BBQ Chicken with baked french fries - Neither of us were a fan of the bbq sauce. It was really tangy and just not what we were used to, but I still ate it. Chris put regular bbq sauce on his portion of the chicken.
Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner: eggs, bacon, (baked) hash-browns. Yum. This was s simple meal and I ended up added left over taco meat to my eggs.
Thursday: Mini Meatloaves with veggies - We have another snow day today, so I'm currently thawing the meat to make these!
Friday: Kalua Pork with roasted broccoli
One of the problems with my first Whole 30 was that I couldn't ever get full. I was constantly hungry and ended up having to stop working out because I wasn't getting enough calories. I don't want that to happen this time, and so far, so good. We have been eating a lot of pork and beef because neither of us loveee chicken. We especially hate grilled chicken.
I am almost done with week one and I can tell you that I already feel better. I started this Whole 30 journey again because my acid reflux was flaring up again and I haven't had any pain related to reflux all week. I've been full after every meal and even though I'm craving a cookie, my morning protein shakes are doing the trick.
Since I'm stuck inside all day today, I hope to work on next week's meal plan!
