The Whole30 blog was right, Day 11 is much easier than Days 9 and 10. For some reason many folks on the diet have a rough time those two days and I did as well. I think my body was getting rid of the final bad carbs, sugar and dairy that I have been eating my whole life. I have SO much more energy and am SO thankful this program was founded. I feel empowered and have more control over my life than I did before. I look back and even the two mini creamers I had per coffee (had 4 daily) were really contributing to my weight issues. I didn’t think they would have much of an impact when drinking them, actually I thought I could use them as a meal replacement at times, which was double bad. ANYWHO feeling on track and almost half way done with R1D30, in code that means round one of the Whole30 diet! 🙂 Yippeeeee!
Now time for my meals today! First started off the morning with coffee and sugar free coconut milk (of course, can’t cut out my favorite drink)! I had 3 eggs and took 2 coconut biscuits I made the night before along with sweet potato chips I made as well. I did also bring a bag of grapes and a lime with me to drink in my water during the day. GREAT NEWS! They had apples at work today! I decided to cut the apple with the plastic cutlery they provide at work and smashed my coconut biscuits up as well, came out with a delicious snack:
OK I get it, the pic doesn’t do it justice, HOWEVER for those that are REALLY missing sweets, this is a great replacement for the usual junk food we pollute our body with!
Next up, dinner! Tonight I had a Turkey HotDog Succotash! SO GOOD! Make sure the hotdogs you buy are compliant, i.e. uncured, no sugar, etc. I started by dicing zucchini and carrots and put them in the frying pan with oil:
Next up, defrosted the hot dogs in the microwave and then threw them on the same frying pan. While they were cooking I took each one out and sliced it up into smaller pieces to get it into bite sized form. WALLAH! My masterpiece below, and it was so filling:
Next up had to meal prep for tomorrow! I throw in the leftover zucchini and carrots from the succotash I had for dinner in the frying pan with my leftover chicken from the night before, added water and now and waiting for my homemade soup to boil. I will let it cool for a bit, then add more water if need be, keeping it in the same pan and boiling again until the chicken falls off the bone. Luckily I have some time! I have my grapes tomorrow and will bring this soup as well.
Thanks for reading guys and I will be in touch tomorrow with more meal ideas and support for your successful Whole30! Have a good day!
