Week one of doing The Whole30 pregnant surprised me. I went into this thinking it would be a piece of cake (not real cake of course). As I was already eating Paleo I expected no withdrawal symptoms, no bumps at all really. I expected to clean up my diet a little and go on my merry little way.
Uh, wake up call. My diet had definitely strayed farther than I realized! If for no other reason than shining a light on that this Whole30 is worth it.
My eats for the week looked something like this:
|Coffee with my Paleo creamer recipe. Kept before noon of course.|
|Most mornings were eggs from my chickens with veggies, fruit, and some good fats.|
|This was my I'm-too-lazy-to-cook morning. I was glad I'd boiled 2 dozen eggs on Sunday.|
|My Paleo tuna salad with baby spinach and a pink lady apple. Yum. Love this easy lunch.|
|Paleo egg salad with baby spinach and a mandarin. This recipe will be up soon. So good.|
|A new recipe I'm working on. Slow cooker chicken and cauliflower curry.|
|Roast (grass-fed of course) with salad.|
|Slow cooker beef with broccoli. I used my slow cooker a lot. Awesome time-saver.|
I did experience a bit of a headache on day 2 and a wee bit of 'kill all the things' on day 5. I was shocked, but like I said a needed wake up call. Other than that the week was awesome.
This week's Whole30 menu plan:
How about you...how is your Whole30 going? If you haven't tried it yet, will you?
