Whole30 – Day 17

So take say 16 and add strawberries. Sitting all day and talking with two 80+ people does not induce an appetite. I did drink lots of water. And having my uncle’s house all to ourselves helped with meals. We could go back there, hide and prepare a meal that was on plan. The only regret is that I did under eat a lot!

Breakfast – 2.5 scrambled eggs (no pic) again, hubby brought them to me in bed and I was hungry and forgot to snap a pic until after they were gone.

Lunch – the rest of the blueberries and strawberries.

Dinner – the last of the chicken breast and snap peas.

Whole30 – Day 16

So traveling is hard when doing Whole30. I have a sick grandparent 8 hours north from my home. Riding in the car over night puts a damper on your appetite. I did not eat a lot over the weekend and much of it is repetitive. Pile on top of that I get all of my bad eating habits from my family. On a positive note I did drink lots of water.

Breakfast – 2.5 scrambled eggs (no pic)

Lunch – almost an entire carton of raw blueberries.

Dinner – chicken breast and snap peas.

Whole30 – Day 15

Half way though my first Whole30 and hanging tough! Today was good, I had to slam my lunch down in between interviews. But I did take my snacks with me to munch on during the closed door discussions.

Breakfast – 2 scrambled eggs in coconut oil with home-made salsa and black coffee.

Lunch –  so no picture. Interviews ran over and I had less than 30 minutes to slam food down my throat. I did eat the following: leftover smoked pulled pork with egg hash and greens salad with radishes and green peppers.

Dinner – In an effort to eat all we buy for the week I had smoked pulled pork and the last of the cabbage cooked in ghee and garlic on the stove top.

Whole30 – Day 10

Today I was dreading another Sunday Dinner with the family. Especially since my sister was planning on ordering pizza. I told her I would be bringing my own food and came up with a plan. Then my hubby put his back out and need to be driven to urgent care. I grabbed my snacks, vitamins, and water and headed out the door. The day was calorie light, but I did not go to bed hungry.

Breakfast – 2 eggs scrambled cooked in coconut oil (my new fav), topped with home-made salsa and black coffee.

20150111_105540

Lunch – Nope. I was waiting in the car eating my snacks because I refused to be in the urgent care waiting room with a shit-ton of sick people.

Dinner – NY Strip steak and cabbage steaks with olive oil and garlic.

Whole30 – Day 9

Today was good for a weekend. My hubby and I are DINKS (Dual Income No Kids) so we sleep in on the weekends, since our work days start at 4:30 am. I did not get up until after 11:00 am so there were only two meals today.

Breakfast – 2 eggs scrambled cooked in coconut oil, home-made salsa, and black coffee.
