Whole30 Day 1

Thursday, March 30, 2017

All those March habits led me to participate in the Whole30 program.
Full disclosure, I swore I'd never do it, that it was stupid, yada, yada, yada.

So here I am, Day 1 complete.

My DD and SIL just finished. She lost 16 and he lost 12. They plan on starting back for another 30 after a short break.

So DH and I decided to jump in. We bought the book, did the grocery shopping (after taking out a bank loan.....LOL) and started on March 29.

I love coffee and the only thing in our local groceries that I could find was W30 compliant almond milk. It was just okay. Still looking.

For breakfast I made a lovely scramble. Chicken apple sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, spinach, roasted red peppers, served with some pico de gallo, sprinkled with cilantro with sliced avocado on the side.

Mid morning I had an apple with almond butter and a second cup of coffee.

I got my Instant Pot out for lunch, butter chicken. I braised bone in skinless thighs in some olive oil, added some ghee, lemon juice and zest, lots of garlic, potatoes and beans. I was so hungry I forgot to take a picture.

Dinner. Nachos. I baked some sweet potato chips. While they were baking I cooked an onion, added a pound of grass fed ground beef, chile, cumin, oregano, paprika. Assembling the nachos, sp chips on the bottom, beef topped with green peppers, pico de gallo, lots of cilantro and guacamole.

At 10 PM I had a handful of strawberries and a few cashews. I have digestive issues and have to eat smaller portions. I am trying to wait 3-4 hours between meals and snacks.

Back tomorrow.
