Without a doubt this Whole30 plan takes planning! I had a good day yesterday "on plan".
After-dinner snacking has always been my downfall, but with this diet's emphasis on lean protein and good fats I simply haven't been hungry at night. That's amazing to me; some nights I would be rummaging for my first evening snack before my husband was even done cleaning the kitchen. So this is HUGE for me.
Today I pick up the book for this eating plan from the library called, "It Starts With Food" by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig. I know I read it before, but apparently it didn't resonate with me the first time. Probably at the time I thought giving up carbs and dairy would be impossible!
MUSTANGAMORE, I finally told my husband I was on this new eating plan yesterday! NO, he hadn't noticed it on his own -- he said he's too busy chowing down on his own meal to notice what I've been eating!
And JLOVESDOGS, just for you, here are the pictures of what I ate yesterday!
Breakfast: 2 egg omelet with onion & mushrooms on a bed of spinach sauteed with 1 slice diced bacon and a peach
Lunch: spinach and lettuce salad with tomato topped with chicken salad made with paleo mayo and celery, onion, and banana peppers. 1 cup watermelon
Dinner: 6.5 oz. cod with roasted potatoes, onions, and carrots; sauteed summer squash topped with avocado ranch dressing.
Yesterday I also went to the fitness center and did a mile on the treadmill and then bike class. I worked in the yard with TC for another hour or so and got in my 15,000 steps. A good day!
Have a wonderful Tuesday, Sparkfriends; I'm looking forward to hearing what you are up to today!
