Whole30 Challenge Day 25

The countdown is on and now the looming question begins of what to eat in the days after Whole30? What habits changed and what new habits do I keep? As much as you want to stop Whole30 you’ve also worked hard to get to where you’re at so changing your new Whole30 lifestyle seems almostContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 25”

Whole30 Challenge Day 24

After a couple of rough days, it was great to feel good again. Lots of rest, eating at home, and not skipping meals is key to success when it comes to Whole30. Teaching definitely increases your appetite and exhaustion levels. Add trying to eat on a packed day of teaching and impromptu responsibilities is aContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 24”

Whole30 Challenge Day 23

After a terrible Day 22, I’m trying to keep it together this last week of Whole30. There’s many challenges to face up ahead. I’ve conquered birthday parties, vacation, and going out to dinner. Now we have a family get together “pizza party,” to trudge through. There’s baking cupcakes, brownies, adult beverages, and yes pizza. AndContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 23”

Whole30 Challenge Day 22

How is it even possible to have such a great day 21 and such a terrible day 22? This was by far the worst and hardest day to date. I blame myself. It was a stressful busy day and I felt behind on everything including eating, packing, or being prepared. I wanted to give up.Continue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 22”

Whole30 Challenge Day 21

Why can’t all days be like day 21? What a great day with little to no food cravings. Breakfast: banana, unsweetened almond milk and coffee Lunch: carrots and guacamole, Lara bar, cashews, small macadamia milk with espresso Dinner: small baked potato with salt, cooked broccoli and carrots, side salad with greens/carrots/tomatoes/hard boiled eggs/cabbage Snack: miniContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 21”

Whole30 the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Well it’s over. I survived. It is possible to do Whole30 even as a vegetarian. Here’s a few things I learned. 1. You will most likely lose weight. I won’t give you exact inches or pounds, but you will look and feel thinner. Within the first week I was already noticing a difference. Others noticedContinue reading “Whole30 the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly”

Whole30 Challenge Day 20

I thought it was just me, but I read recently something about Whole30 that made me feel a little better. There will be days where you aren’t very hungry and nothing sounds good and other days you’ll want to eat anything and everything and still be hungry. (I feel like this can happen when you’reContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 20”

Whole30 Challenge Day 19

Okay okay probably a little too much, but almond milk really is great. I found an easy way to make a banana dessert using bananas that are about to go bad. If you peel and cut the bananas into chunks and put them in a Ziploc bag in the freezer they’re supposed to last 1-2Continue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 19”

Whole30 Challenge Day 18

Going out to eat is a struggle on Whole30, but it got a little easier today. I brought a little ghee, some sugar free ketchup, and my own unsweetened almond milk. Yes, I was that person today, but it was well worth it. I was able to order what I really wanted for breakfast andContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 18”

Whole30 Challenge Day 17

Where do you go out for date night that’s Whole30 approved? No drinking, no fried food, no pizza, no desserts and no pasta? The struggle is real! While finding a place to eat out is already hard enough. Finding a place open late on a Saturday in a COVID world was another struggle. We foundContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 17”
