i won’t be journaling ever day, as i have a 10 week old baby that is really cute and i like to give attention to.
but for general purposes, i will be blogging as i see fit to update on progress with the WHOLE 30 challenge!
breakfast: 3 eggs fried in ghee, 3 strips of bacon. coffee with coconut cream.
results? addicted. coconut cream is amazing in coffee. also, eggs fried in ghee is a real treasure. so buttery-flavory. this is my usual breakfast for the most part, with the addition of ghee and coconut cream.
snack: banana with almond butter
lunch: turkey, half an avocado, half a red pepper, sprouts. also a peach for lunch-dessert.
results? tasty and filling in the moment, but i should have packed more. i normally eat a cup of greek yogurt, almonds, and fruit, which fills me up much more.
snack: handful of cashews
dinner: shrimp, red onion, red pepper, pineapple skewers served over kelp noodles with sesame oil drizzle. we marinated the skewers in liquid amino, garlic, ginger, and crushed pepper.
results? delicious. we’ve made kelp noodles before and love them. it is rare, however, that we make skewers. love grilled pineapple.
i don’t plan on always doing snacks between meals, but my lunch just didn’t fill me up like i thought it would. i will pack a bigger lunch from now on!
overall, day 1 went great. obviously, the momentum from starting any challenge like this will probably last a few days, then taper if i get hungry or am not prepared to deal with manageable cravings for “no” foods.
if anyone has any comments, words of encouragement, or is in on this challenge and wants to let us know how you’re doing, speak up! share your pain!
