Whole30: Week Three Recap

WEEK3

Halfway there! Here is what I ate and how I felt during week three:

Day 15

 Breakfast

  • Eggs
  • Bacon
  • Cold Brewed Coffee with Unsweetened Coconut Milk

 Lunch

  • Lettuce Wraps with Shredded Chicken & Salsa
  • Peach

 Supper

  • Booster Juice “Tropikale” Smoothie

 Perspectives: I’m still fantasizing about all of the foods I can’t have right now. It’s pretty powerful! The timeline on the Whole30 website predicted this but I’m hoping it passes soon. Physically I have a good amount of energy and my stomach, which almost always felt bad after I ate something prior to doing this, has felt great consistently. This proves to me that I most definitely have some kind of food sensitivity. I can’t wait until the reintroduction phase so I can find out what it is!

Day 16

 Breakfast

  • Scrambled Eggs & Salsa

 Lunch

  • Grilled Chicken
  • Grapes
  • Snow Peas
  • Cucumber Slices

 Supper

  • BBQ chicken breasts, bacon and garlic aioli wrapped in lettuce

 Perspectives: This was the best supper EVER. I made my own mayo and then made two sauces out of it for the lettuce wraps: chipotle aioli and garlic & herb aioli. We both agreed it was the best meal we’ve had in a long time.

Day 17

 Breakfast

  • Booster Juice “Tropikale” Smoothie

 Lunch

  • Leftover Chicken & Bacon Lettuce Wraps

 Supper

  • Grilled Chicken
  • Roasted Potatoes & Carrots

 Perspectives: I think I overdid it on the garlic yesterday. I’ve had an upset stomach and the only new thing I’ve eaten was the garlic aioli. Too much garlic has been known to upset my stomach so I’m sure that’s what did it. Bummer, because I love cooking with it.

Day 18

 Breakfast

  • Banana
  • Almond Butter

 Lunch

  • Leftover Grilled Chicken (wrapped in a lettuce leaf with mayo)
  • Leftover Roasted Potatoes & Carrots
  • Half a Larabar

 Supper

  • Steak
  • Roasted Potatoes
  • Spinach Salad (red onion, sunflower seeds, oil & vinegar)

Perspectives: We had dinner guests three times this week! While it was a bit of a challenge putting together food everyone could eat, we did it, while also avoiding the garlic bread and ice cream we included in the menu for our guests.

Day 19

 Breakfast

  • Green Smoothie (spinach, kale, berries, orange juice, chia, matcha)
  • Mixed nuts

Lunch

  • Sliced Grilled Chicken
  • Celery Sticks
  • Grapes

 Supper

  • Shrimp Stirfry (snow peas, kale, broccoli, spices, salt, olive oil)

Perspectives: I’ve been drinking a lot of green smoothies to soothe my stomach. I’ve also noticed my skin is starting to glow and realized that I’ve had no major breakouts since we started our Whole30, which is a big deal for me.

 Day 20

 Breakfast

  • Green Smoothie (spinach, kale, lettuce, berries, orange juice, chia, matcha)
  • Mixed nuts

Lunch

  • Sliced Grilled Chicken
  • Celery Sticks
  • Grapes

 Supper

  • Spaghetti Squash with Chicken Cacciatore (shredded chicken, crushed tomatoes, garlic, herbs, spices)

Snack

  • Larabar

 Perspectives: I’m definitely ready to be done. Not to go crazy, but just ready to have a little freedom in my choices and then settle into a nice balance from there on out. I’m so curious to see how my re-introduction phase goes!

Day 21

 Breakfast

  • Scrambled Eggs with Pepper & Onion
  • Bacon
  • Banana
  • Cold Brewed Coffee with Unsweetened Coconut Milk

Lunch

  • Leftover Spaghetti Squash and Chicken Cacciatore

 Supper

  • Chicken & Apple Sausage
  • Carrot & Celery Sticks
  • Grapes

 Perspectives: I found Spolumbo’s sausage at Sobey’s with a very simple, compliant ingredient list and sweetened with fruit juices instead of sugar. We grilled them tonight and they were DELICIOUS. Definitely a new favorite product and a nice change from our usual fare. They come in two other flavors that we are very excited to try next.

On to the final week!
