What I ate Wednesday on the Whole30

Today marks the first day of week 3 of my Whole30 trial. At first it seemed impossible and I definitely thought I was going to give up by the 2 week mark, but now that I’m in the swing of things, it’s gotten a lot easier.

These are my meals from yesterday (not included are photos of a bunch of water and about 8 cups of organic black tea).

For breakfast, around 9am I had 2 bananas and a handful of dates.

Breakfast - 2 bananas and 4 dates

Around 11am I had lunch, which was tofu scramble (similar to scrambled eggs, except waaay better) with roasted potatoes and smothered in Frank’s Red Hot.Lunch - Tofu scramble with roasted potatoes and Frank's hot sauce

Around 1pm, I had a mango. I just slice them like this and then eat the flesh away from the skin and around the seed. Mangoes are officially my favorite fruit. I used to be intimidated by cutting them, but it was soooo worth getting over that.

Snack - Mango

For dinner at 5, I made 2 portotbello mushrooms that were sauteed in EVOO with garlic, onions, and peppers, roasted broccoli, and a baked hasselback potato. I had more broccoli on my plate but forgot to take a picture before I started eating..oops! For the potatoes, I’ve been taking the lazy way out and I’ve been microwaving them for about 4 minutes (after poking a crap ton of holes in them so they don’t explode) and then I bake them to make them crispy. It’s a lot easier and quicker that way. I also made a big salad that I forgot to take a picture of. I’ve been making a quick oil and vinegar dressing with Italian spices.

Dinner - 2 portobello mushrooms, roasted broccoli, and a baked potato

For a snack around 9pm, I sliced up an organic Gala apple and topped it with cashew butter and natural sunflower seeds.

This has been pretty much what I’ve been eating daily. At first I was afraid to eat the same things over and over again, but I realized I really don’t mind it and it makes things a lot simpler. I’m really enjoying the Whole30 so far. I’ll post my initial thoughts in the next few days.

What I Ate Wednesday

The first thing I had was a glass of strawberry kombucha.

And then one strawberry and pineapple smoothie (almond milk, pineapple, strawberry, chia seeds, Sun Warrior vanilla protein powder).

Strawberry Pineapple Protein Shake

I took my vitamin and spirulina with two full bottles of water.

I made a batch of mostly raw ‘kitchen sink’ cookies. The base is made from raw oats and date paste. I added in a little bit of everything, vanilla protein powder (raw, vegan), almond butter, chia seeds, chocolate chips (vegan, but not raw), goji berries, golden raisins, and a lot of cinnamon.

I dehydrated them for a bit, but I ate most of them right off the tray while they were drying.

Raw Chewy Cookies

I had 3 bananas through out the day.

For dinner, I had a big bowl of raw veggies, and then a bowl full of broccoli cooked with nutritional yeast.

And I saw these veggie burgers at Target, so I gave them a try.

Morning Star Garlic and Quinoa

They were pretty good. I had two with some roasted potatoes and garlic Veganaise.

For dessert I had a few (read: a lot) more oatmeal cookies.
