Hello and happy Friday! I finally found the will to recap week 4 of my Whole30 1 week after it ended. Let’s get to it, shall we?
Breakfast: Hard-boiled eggs, banana, and the last of the almond butter I had on hand.
Lunch: The rest of some stuff I had thrown in the slow-cooker on Sunday: chicken thighs, Brussels, sweet potato, and an apple. This sounded good in theory, but ended up only being OK. Especially on day 2—it didn’t reheat well.
Dinner: Apparently I forgot to take a picture of dinner, but I made tacos: ground beef, chopped zucchini and bell peppers, diced tomatoes, and a whole bunch of cumin.
Breakfast: Hard-boiled eggs, banana, and a packet of Justin’s almond butter I had randomly picked up. Good thing too, because almond butter is where it’s at.
Lunch: Leftover tacos from the night before in 2 Siete tortillas.
Dinner: Quick and easy scrambled eggs in tortillas with hot sauce. Amazingly, I never really got sick of eggs on Whole30. If I had, making dinner on busy nights would have been much more complicated.
Breakfast: The usual. By now, my coworkers were complaining about my hard-boiled eggs every single morning. #sorrynotsorry
Lunch: The rest of leftover tacos and tortillas.
Dinner: Spaghetti squash with sauce made of ground beef, chopped zucchini, diced tomatoes, and Rao’s.
Breakfast: Eggs, banana, and another almond butter packet I had on hand.
Lunch: Leftover spaghetti and squash from dinner.
Dinner: We made plans to go to dinner at Hacienda that evening, and I ordered a salad. Which unfortunately turned out to be the single worst salad I have ever had in my life. I picked out some of the chicken and ate that, but went home hungry and sad. So I had a banana and more almond butter when I got home.
Breakfast: Fried eggs over some arugula (finally something different, I know).
Lunch/dinner: After the previous night’s disappointing experience, we decided to try for some good Mexican food at Chipotle. I had a salad with carnitas, pico, and guac. Much, much better!
Breakfast: Fried eggs over arugula with hot sauce and clementines. Maybe my favorite breakfast of all time.
Dinner: I snacked off and on all day and didn’t really have lunch. For a simple dinner, I fried an apple chicken sausage, topped it with mustard, and had riced cauliflower and sweet potato with ghee on the side.
Breakfast: Back at work, so it was hard-boiled eggs, banana, and almond butter. And I promised my coworkers we were on the home stretch with the eggs. 🙂
Lunch: Chicken sausage and riced veg (I made extra the night before so I could have some for lunch).
Dinner: Last taco Monday of Whole30! I had 3 tacos (the usual mix) with Siete tortillas and a bowl of raspberries for dessert.
And that is the recap for my fourth and final week of Whole30. At this point, I felt…amazing. I plan to do yet another post recapping my last 2 days (because as they say, Day 28 is NOT Day 30), plus fill you in on my final thoughts and the benefits I saw during the reset.
I hope you all have enjoyed reading these! They have been a fun way for me to look back over the last month and see the changes I was able to make by doing the Whole3o.
I hope you have a lovely weekend, eat something delicious, and do something good for yourself. ❤
