I am seriously so excited for this challenge. Yes, it will be challenging. But I just cannot wait to see the results of what it does for me! I am really hoping to see changes in my energy levels, my digestion and stomach aches, and my skin. Bring it on!
Breakfast:So, I kinda screwed myself on day 1…I didn’t have any eggs. Oops. I thought I had enough for at least my breakfast, but opened the fridge to find they were gone. So, I had a non-breakfast for breakfast. Last night’s leftover salmon, sauteed some kale, and then half an avocado. Wasn’t too excited about it, but managed to choke it down. Off to an…ok start?
Lunch: Luckily, I was able to text my neighbor (egg supplier) and her son ran some eggs over for me. So, I had breakfast for lunch. Egg scramble with chicken sausage and red pepper, and sliced tomato and avocado on the side.
Snack: I was heading out to meet a friend for a coffee date at a cute little bakery/cafe. I was scared and didn’t want to try to deal with ordering something safe, so I made a smoothie and drank it on the way. Problem solved. It was frozen cherries, kale, a scoop of coconut oil, scoop of almond butter, and coconut milk. Next time I’d rather leave the almond butter out, and just eat a handful of almonds with it.
Dinner: So good!! Healthy Shake ‘n Bake Chicken with sweet potato fries and broccoli. Bret and the kids loved it! I will definitely make this again, Whole 30 or not! Ooooh, I just had another thought…you could fry these up in some expeller pressed coconut oil (flavorless) = more crispy, and still a healthy fat!
I finished the evening with a small glass of kombucha+pellegrino. All in all it was a great day. It was easy! Says the girl on Day 1….
