Today is day 21 of my Whole 30 journey.
The previous food plan that I followed eliminated sugar, flour and wheat so those are not items I am inclined to miss much, although I was consuming them off and on for a few months during a recent relapse before I started the Whole 30 program.
I am really not missing anything that I have cut out on Whole 30 that I used to eat pretty regularly on my former food plan (dairy, grains, beans, legumes and soy) and because this is still the "honeymoon" phase of following something new I am really enjoying some of the new recipes that I have been making.
Last night for dinner I made us a breakfast hash of shredded sweet potato and zucchini with onion, all pan fried in coconut oil and topped with 2 eggs.
For lunch today I had the veggies I roasted last night ~ cauliflower, broccoli and onion which I marinated with sweet curry, paprika, rice vinegar, olive oil and salt. I added some ground turkey to the mix and enjoyed it with a side of fresh blueberries.
I also roasted some Brussels sprouts and carrots last night to enjoy later this week.
I am quite curious about what the scale might reveal (yikes what if I am gaining weight on the plan!) but I am honoring the commitment the authors of Whole 30 asked me to make to stay off the scale for 30 days.
I am feeling pretty good although some current major stressors at work may be limiting my ability to take in the full benefits of the plan.
I am definitely still motivated to stick with this for the full 30 days and may go for another 30 before re-introducing any of the food groups that I have eliminated. Time will tell.
