The real struggle with any diet or food program is the social aspect. Day 3 Whole30 meets, “The Birthday Party.”
Having a lot of food that you can’t eat and a lot of people around can make it even more difficult to stick to your restrictions. The one benefit to hosting the birthday party was the option to create dishes that are friendly to eat and not have to worry about asking what’s in it.
We hosted a brunch birthday party for our now 3 year-old daughter. We had several sides, sweets, cake, and fruit to choose from. It really wasn’t too difficult to stay away from the donut holes, muffins, and the cake (I don’t really like these already).
Breakfast: 100% apple juice, eggs scrambled, cut strawberries, banana, and clementine, coffee+unsweetened almond milk, raspberries
Snack: Rx Bar (I do not recommend these, while the taste was fine the texture was super duper chewy).
Lunch: (No Lunch today we had a really late brunch and we were very busy with the party guests/clean up)
Snack: Homemade trail mix with walnuts, coconut flakes, cashews, raisins, and almonds
Dinner: 5 egg omelet (I was only able to eat about half), baked russet potato with plant-based butter, and California blend vegetables
Takeaway: My husband is officially annoyed with me. Just kidding, but he did order a deep dish pizza for himself and the kids.
