Happy Monday!! Today is especially happy for me because I am 28 days into the Whole30 and 2 days away from reintroduction and food freedom!
I have received such an AMAZING response from my Whole30 series so far, and if you’ve missed out on the adventure so far, let me catch you up:
Now that you’re caught up, let’s get into week 4…so, how was it?
Week 4 was the easiest week by far. I’ve honestly had NO sugar cravings, am seriously loving what I eat, and guys…I’m even enjoying my black coffee every morning. I mean, what happened to the girl who used to load up her morning brew with tons of sugary creamer??
If you’re in weeks 1-2 of the Whole30 right now, let me just tell you: IT GETS BETTER.
What did I eat during week 4?
Day 22- Monday
Breakfast- Granny Smith apple and Justin’s almond butter. Black coffee. (I know I’m missing veggies in a lot of my breakfasts this week, but this meal is my staple when I’m in a hurry!)
Lunch- Blackened chicken, spicy guacamole, and fresh strawberries.
Dinner- More Chipotle! This is a salad bowl with carnitas, salsa, and guacamole. (As far as I know, carnitas is the only Whole30 meat option at Chipotle.)
Day 23- Tuesday
Breakfast- Scrambled eggs, sauteed mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and cherries. Coffee with coconut milk.
Lunch- Chicken, avocado, granny smith apple, and Justin’s almond butter.
Dinner- Beef roast with roasted potatoes and carrots. Salad. (I use red wine vinegar as a dressing.)
Day 24- Wednesday
Breakfast- Sauteed mushrooms and red bell pepper, prosciutto, fried egg, and grapes.
Lunch- Leftover beef roast, with a granny smith apple and Justin’s almond butter.
Dinner- Taco salad-ground beef over salad with salsa and spicy guacamole.
Day 25- Thursday
Breakfast- Boiled eggs, grapes, and black coffee. (Another “In-a-hurry” breakfast!)
Lunch- Chicken, avocado, carrots, and fresh strawberries.
Dinner- Ground beef meatballs, roasted potatoes, and salad with kalamata olives.
Day 26- Friday
Breakfast- Prosciutto baked egg cups, fresh strawberries, and black coffee. These are so good and really easy to make!
Lunch/Dinner- Not pictured. Baked chicken and veggies. I was out Friday with family for a late lunch so I didn’t end up being hungry for dinner.
Day 27- Saturday
Breakfast- Gala apple, Justin’s almond butter, green tea.
Lunch- Steak kabobs, potato, and roasted veggies.
Dinner- Aidell’s chicken & apple sausage, mushrooms, and cherry tomatoes. Pomegranate seeds.
Day 28- Sunday
Breakfast- Egg with sauteed kale, pepper, onion, and mushrooms. Grapes and black coffee.
Lunch/Dinner- Another late lunch that ended up being dinner too! This is a salad with carnitas, salsa, and guacamole. My favorite Whole30 “treat” meal!
And that’s it for week 4! Since I have two days of the program left (yay!) stay tuned for my final results Wednesday!
The Whole30 program is all about “Non-scale victories”, and while those have been amazing, I can’t wait to see what 30 days of not eating sugar, grains, dairy, legumes, etc. is going to have on my weight!
Thanks so much for reading!
