Today has been spent exercising, napping, and cooking more food! The Whole30 is no joke for a couple of reasons – it takes a lot of willpower, a lot of time and thought, and a lot more money than we would normally spend on food. While I’m sure that you can do the Whole30 for cheaper than we are, we enjoy having a variety of good food. Historically, I have been able to keep my distance from Whole Foods, but have found it to be an important part of my Whole30 journey – lucky Mike! I’ve found really good quality fruit, dilly beans (Perhaps my new obsession. You’ve got to try them.), unsweetened coconut flakes, almond butter, Coconut Aminos, among other foods.
Mike and I are both continuing to feel better every day – I can’t believe how much more alert I am and how much better I feel in general. I’m still hopeful and awaiting some more energy. Mike says he wakes up feeling better in the mornings, and has definitely lost some weight. I have learned so much in the 7 short days of doing the Whole30 – mostly from reading ingredient labels and learning what goes in to the food I eat every day. I’m definitely ready for week 2!
Breakfast: Banana, Almonds
Lunch: Hamburgers! With a side of avocado, dilly beans, and watermelon. This was a great recovery lunch after we went for a bike ride this morning.
Dinner: Leftover spaghetti sauce over spaghetti squash, served with a salad
