So not too long ago, one of my fave podcasts (which I’m listening to even MORE now) did a “what we ate” roundup. (Episode 72 of The Mom Hour.) We’re not talking the perfect meal plan. We’re talking about how it actually went down.
Because I’ve been texting pics to my whole30 buddy, I’ve got PLENTY of evidence of how it actually went down. The good, the bad, and the ugly. (And I was too lazy to edit these photos so all of them are pretty ugly. Apologies.)
If you’re catching up, these are my goals for this whole30. And this is what I actually ate for week 1:
[Day 2: Apparently I was struggling with my caffeine withdrawal headache that I forgot to take a picture of this. No clue.]
I tried to credit any recipes I used, but know that I don’t follow recipes exactly. In part, because I refuse to measure. Like anything. This is why I can’t bake.
For beverages, I had plenty of herbal tea. Plenty of water and sparkling water. I may have done some decaf coffee, but I tried to put some distance between coffee and myself–even decaf–in the early days. On this whole30, I’ve had some bulletproof, but definitely not every day anymore.
Snacks aren’t listed because I really don’t snack. I may have a few nuts while cooking dinner if I’m putting nuts on something. One day I had a clementine and some nuts at the zoo for a pre-lunch snack because I horribly misjudged how long we would be out. (I think my “real” lunch was at 3:30 that day.) But in general, no afternoon snacks. Nothing after dinner other than the pictured coconut cream.
So there you go. It’s not sexy. But it gets ‘er dun.
