For this week’s update, I didn’t record EVERY SINGLE meal that I ate. I know, I know, I’m sorry! This past week has been SO busy and since I have mostly been eating repeat meals from weeks 1 & 2, I thought it would be a great time for me to share some of my favorite meals so far and how I’m feeling 3 weeks in!
Just in case you missed it: 😉
How was week 3?
I’ve seen the greatest amount of non-scale victories this week! If you’re not familiar with the Whole30 program, non-scale victories are basically what they sound like…changes that are beyond just a number on the scale.
- My engagement ring is fitting looser.
- I wore my “skinny jeans” all week!
- I have a TON of energy.
- & My mood is so much happier overall.
Another big change between week 2 and week 3 is that I definitely do not have as many cravings for off-limit foods like ice cream or pizza. Seriously! By now, I have gotten into a pretty nice routine and am familiar enough with what I can and can’t have that I can relax a little bit…such a great feeling!
Favorite meals so far:
For the most part, everything I eat on Whole30 is super simple. I don’t spend too much time trying to follow complicated recipes.
Breakfast- Some type of eggs (Boiled, fried, scrambled, poached…) with a side of veggies and fruit. Eggs are a Whole30 STAPLE. You’ll probably be eating a lot of them! And I can’t forget the coffee and lemon water!
Lunch- Soup or salad with a side of fruit and a LaCroix sparkling water! My favorite Whole30 soup has been chicken and vegetable soup. I love adding celery, carrots, sweet potato, and onion in with the chicken! And if you love spicy stuff like me, the majority of hot sauce I’ve found is Whole30 approved!
For salads, I love anything Mexican inspired. My fav is spicy chicken over lettuce with salsa and avocado as a dressing…soo good!
Dinner- Meat, veggies, and fruit. I’ve been loving Aidell’s chicken & apple sausage, spicy chicken, ground beef pattys, and steak! My veggies of choice are usually some type of potato and asparagus or broccoli.
And that’s it for week 3! Be sure to come back next week to see my week 4 update of the Whole30 series!
