Whole30 Days 6-12

If you missed it, you can find Days 1-5 here.

I found compliant roast beef! This has really helped my Whole30 satisfaction. All it has is roast beef, sea salt, and cracked black pepper! So stoked.


No repeat pics of stuff I've already shown you, but there are lots of pics & recipes this time, so good food porn to indulge in.

Day 6 – Friday, June 19

Health – I felt pretty awesome all day. Josh and I had major stomach issues, though, which I think was from the disappointing bison burger yesterday. (I suspect he put way too much flaxmeal in it and undercooked it.)

Breakfast – Baked salmon w/lemon, side salad: spinach, lettuce, tomato, shallot, red pepper, carrot, green olives, lemon.

Lunch – Roast beef slices; baked potato with ghee, kosher salt, black pepper, & white pepper); sliced tomatoes w/kosher salt; blackberries & raspberries.


Dinner - Magic Shrimp w/broccoli & orange cauliflower. This was AMAZING. The spices I used were: garlic salt, white pepper, black pepper, red chili pepper, and just a tiny dash of crushed rosemary.


Day 7 – Saturday, June 20

Health – Feel great! I got to sleep in until almost 10 today, which was a much welcome and long overdue luxury, but it made me feel pretty lazy all day.

Breakfast – Skipped – Got to sleep late!

Lunch – Veggie hash, 3 slices roast beef, roasted salted almonds

Dinner – Bowl of honeydew, 2 pieces roast beef. (I know I should have had a better dinner, but I spent most of the evening mowing the lawn. Luckily we have a rider now, so not too awfully hard work; just got late faster than I realized.)

Day 8 – Sunday, June 21 - Solstice/Father's Day

Health – Feel awesome today. Got a lot done, including a bit of gardening (although I didn't do pre- and post-workout meals like I probably should have).

Breakfast – Red & green pepper and carrots with cashew butter, avocado w/EVOO, sea salt, & crushed red pepper.

Lunch – Bison burger crumbled over salad: lettuce, tomato, avocado, and portobello.

Dinner – ½ chicken breast, sautéed yellow squash w/shallots & dill, mushrooms, kalamata olives.


Day 9 – Monday, June 22

Health – Feel awesome & energized this morning! Ready to tackle the day. Not sure if this is because my body is clear of toxins now or because the girls are all in camp and wonderful things are getting done around the house.

Breakfast – ½ chicken breast w/sea salt & crushed red pepper, sautéed green & red bell pepper and mushrooms, grapes, (drizzle of coconut oil over chicken for fat portion).


Lunch – 2 pc roast beef, green peppers, carrot, raspberries/blackberries.

Dinner – Chicken-Apple sausage, potatoes, squash, red onion, with kalamata olives.


Day 10 – Tuesday, June 23

Health – Good attitude & energy, but tired as the day got hot.

Breakfast – Veggie egg scramble (red onion, garlic, red bell pepper, mushrooms, spinach), avocado w/EVOO/sea salt/crushed red pepper, ½ orange.


Lunch – Chicken-Apple Sausage, homefries, avocado

Dinner – Spaghetti squash with Citrus Bison Meatballs (which were pretty good), drizzled with melted ghee for fat portion.


Day 11 – Wednesday, June 24

Health – Feel good, but having to use the bathroom more often than usual.

Breakfast – (4 hrs after waking up; MUST start eating breakfast earlier) Florentine Scramble (garlic, shallots, red bell pepper, tomato, spinach, kalamata olives)


Lunch – 2 chicken-apple sausages on romaine; carrot, red & green bell pepper; grapes

Dinner - Crockpot Cilantro Lime Chicken on a romaine/red cabbage salad, ½ orange.


Day 12 – Thursday, June 25

Health – Was full of energy & ready to tackle the day...before I was stung by a hornet! Hurt and sick-feeling all day, but I know that was the sting. I did, however, learn about histamine intolerance and now wonder if my foods have contributed to my life-long “allergies”/sinus issues. I haven't even been writing down the sinus stuff, because it didn't occur to me that they could be connected! Will start watching now. Been having nose issues like clockwork at 9 pm all week, but did not have a flare-up this evening. We were out of the house, so it could be something at home, too.

Breakfast – Cilantro Lime Chicken on romaine, sautéed zucchini with garlic salt, sautéed almonds with sea salt. (I've learned that I don't like raw almonds.)


Lunch – Salmon with onion and red & green bell pepper.

no title

Dinner – Was out way later than expected, so I only picked up a banana (and had one strawberry) while we were out. We got in so late that I just went straight to bed. :/

It looks like you're doing great. I did Whole30 back in Feb/March, and it taught me a lot. I had already given up sugar in Jan so that wasn't an issue for me, but it did help me give up carb heavy foods. That was nice. When it ended I did add back in things like dairy in limited forms. I'm also a vegetarian so my Whole 30 looked a little different.

Keep up the great work. :)

Thanks so much! Wow, I can't even imagine trying to do Whole30 as a vegetarian. They're so big on the meat portions being necessary and beans/legumes being off limits (and nuts being fat, not protein). It is very eye-opening, though! I've learned a lot too.

They actually have a shopping list for vegetarians. It wasn't that bad. I ate a lot of eggs and tempeh/tofu and I got to eat a lot of kefir so that was good. :)

So they make a soy exception for vegetarians? That's good to know. I really wish they would allow milk kefir. I don't see why they don't, since the lactic acid is eaten away and it's supposed to be very good for the gut. I have some grains for both milk and water kefir, if they haven't died in my fridge. I'll have to try to revive them.

On the vegetarian section of Whole30 the only soy exception is tempeh and in a pinch organic tofu. None of the other soy products. I'm not one hundred percent clear on the reasoning, but I accepted it as a good thing and ran with it. :)

Great looking meals...what we eat is so important, kudos to you!!

Thanks! I always feel much better when I do the program. I don't know why I keep going back to junk, except that I think they put stuff in it that makes you crave it more, so once I'm off the wagon, I'm waaaaay off. Going to try not to do that this time!

Looks great!

Are your kids doing this too?

Sadly, no. My family, but especially Josh, I am sad to say, has super sweet tooths and balk at a lot of healthy eating. It didn't used to be that way, so I'm not sure what the deal is. But since I do most of the shopping, they do tend to cut back on sugar and rely less on processed foods when I'm on Whole30.

Ivy really likes the foods I eat and wants to try doing it with me. She started once before, but her dad & sisters had ice cream in front of her that night and she just had to have some. She would still share meals with me and ate better, but she'd still have her snacks and kool-aid. >< She wanted to try it again with me this time, but they eat breakfast and lunch at camp right now, so maybe next round.
