Whole30 Challenge Day 15

“Healthy hair and healthy skin”

It’s finally the halfway point and it’s time to start reaping the benefits of whole clean eating for weeks. Cutting out dairy and adding a ton of extra vitamins and minerals have done wonders on my hair and skin. While it is still no match for the irritating ‘mascne’ there’s hope for everything else. I also noticed my jeans/jeggings feel looser in the waist and thighs. Whoot whoot!

Eating something like eggs goes a long way in the morning. I’m not a huge early morning breakfast eater, but I do like breakfast foods. I passed on the banana the last two mornings and went with scrambled eggs. (My husband made these both mornings I would never be able to wake up early enough to have them before work-maybe I’ll try freezing some little omelettes on my next meal prep day). Yesterday I noticed my appetite was curved around lunch and lasted me up until dinner.

Breakfast: scrambled eggs, unsweetened almond milk+coffee

Lunch: mini Lara Bar, trail mix with raisins and unsweetened coconut flakes, strawberries, carrots and guacamole

Snack: small latte coffee with unsweetened macadamia milk, pickles, handful of cashews

Dinner: heart of palm linguine (half with leftover cashew Alfredo and half with sugar free marinara sauce) baked potato and ghee.

Takeaway: In my opinion heart of palm noodles were no better than zoodles. It may be just me but I cannot get over the taste of the texture of these noodle substitutions. I think I’ll just wait until I can eat the real deal again. I’m too much of a die hard pasta lover.

I say things like, “with Mac milk please,” I guess I’m just that kind of person now.
