Whole30 Recap: Week 3

Hi! Happy Friday/Groundhog Day!

So my Whole30 is officially OVER, but I’m still scrambling to post my recaps of the month. Let’s get started with week 3!

Also, if you’re interested: Week 1 recap & week 2 recap.

 

Day 15

Breakfast: The usual hard-boiled eggs, banana, almond butter.

Lunch: Leftover tacos in 2 Siete tortillas and a handful of arugula. Also v proud of myself for not even batting an eye at the pizza brought in for lunch at work!

Dinner: Chicken sausage with mustard, sweet potato with ghee, and a small salad of mixed greens, cranberries, walnuts, and oil + balsamic dressing.

Day 16

Breakfast: See above.

Lunch: The rest of leftover tacos with Siete tortillas and arugula, plus a red pear as dessert.

Dinner: Fried eggs over some mixed greens, sweet potato with ghee.

Day 17

Breakfast: Same.

Lunch: Leftover spaghetti that I had frozen from the week before. When I was packing my lunch, I cooked a spaghetti squash in the microwave and paired it with defrosted spaghetti in the morning. Less food waste is one of the changes I am most proud of from doing Whole30.

Dinner: Fried eggs, mixed greens, sweet potato, ghee.

Note: This was a super stressful week at work, hence the abundance of eggs + sweet potatoes for dinner. This meal takes like 5 minutes to make and was always delicious and filling. 🙂

Day 18

Breakfast: Hard-boiled eggs, almond butter, banana. Around this time, my coworkers were complaining about the smell of eggs every.single.day.

Lunch: The last of the leftover spaghetti I defrosted and spaghetti squash I had made.

Dinner: Friday night is usually our pizza night, but for Whole30 I started doing Chipotle night instead. Unfortunately, they were out of carnitas and guac that night, so I ended up with lettuce, chicken (technically not compliant because of the oil it’s cooked in), and salsa…a pretty sad little dinner. The good news is I got it for free!

Day 19

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with salsa and Everything But The Bagel seasoning with clementines.

Lunch: I went back to Chipotle to give them a chance to redeem themselves, and they did! I had a salad with carnitas, salsa, and guac.

For dinner we were at a birthday party for one of my best friends’ daughter, so I snacked on what was available and compliant: more guac, fruit, and some chicken. I also looked longingly at the giant fried ice cream she had made for dessert.

Day 20

Breakfast was at Kite and Key with my bestie: I got scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, and fresh fruit. Plus coffee (and I brought my own creamer in my bag).

Lunch was more or less some snacks: Larabar, banana, almond butter.

Dinner was chicken sausage with mustard and 2 tiny sweet potatoes with ghee.

Day 21

Breakfast: The usual.

Lunch: I put a bunch of stuff in the crockpot the night before to take for lunch: Chicken thighs, Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, and an apple. It turned out pretty good!

Dinner: Taco Monday! Our usual taco mix is ground beef, chopped bell peppers and zucchini, diced tomatoes, and a whole bunch of cumin. Served in 3 Siete tortillas.

That’s a wrap on week 3! This was the week where I started really feeling good. I woke up more clear-headed. I found that my need to eat every 2 hours was gone, and I usually went 4-5 hours between meals. I snacked less, especially in the evenings (I found a cup of tea or some fruit after dinner usually did the trick if I wanted something). And things became more routine…like when lunch or treats were brought into the office, it didn’t really bother me. I had way less cravings, and started feeling really good.

I’ll be back in a few days with the rest of my recaps and final thoughts on the Whole30, but until then, have a great weekend! ❤
