I’ve been keeping a countdown tab on my fridge for the Whole 30, and every day I rip off a page. Today, is the first day in which the number on the countdown is lower than the days I’ve been Whole 30.
14 days left and 16 days down. After today there are only 2 weeks left of this journey. I can’t believe how fast this is truly going. And, yes I’ve been missing some foods but I’m not going out of my mind missing them and I’m feeling pretty good physically, mentally, and emotionally.
I will definitely be continuing with this whole, natural, clean eating thing. Yes, I’m sure I’ll be adding in some grains from time to time and definitely some dairy in the form of cheese at least but nowhere near at the level I was consuming this stuff before. As for the processed foods I’ll be trying to stay away from them as much as possible. It really is providing nothing of nutritional substance for me. Yes, I need to do planning and thinking ahead, but that’s really no different than planning any other meals.
Breakfast was my muffins, which I will probably make again but with different mix-ins. That’s one nice thing about the recipe it’s easily changeable.
Lunch, is a salad with grilled chicken and mixed berries with balsamic. I really enjoy this meal, it’s quick to make and fills me up.
Dinner, is chicken with pears, cranberries, and acorn squash. I threw all of the ingredients in the crock pot and let it cook throughout the day. The house smelled wonderful. And, it tasted very good, although next time I think I’d add more spices to it to give it a bit more flavor.
