Yes you read that right, I'm still eating whole30ish. ;)
What does the 'ish' mean?
Well I still don't eat grain, or beans, I try to avoid extra sugar and dairy, but I have brought back my half and half for my morning coffee. The world looks a little better when I have my coffee.
And yes, I tried every form of coconut and almond milk and a dozen recipes for homemade faux creams. No... just no. I have my limits. ;)
|I still eat bacon and eggs for breakfast, but this day I added purple potatoes from our garden.|
|Some morning, eggs with chorizo (look for no added sugar or nitrites just like the bacon).|
|Lunch is usually a salad, but with LOTS of stuff.|
|Fruit and nuts with meat from the night before.|
|Chicken is a favorite for lunch. Cold or hot.|
|Strawberries and green olives made a lot of people question our taste-buds, but we actually enjoy the salty sweet combo.|
|One of my favorite snacks is bananas dipped in almond butter.|
|...and fruit salad. But earlier in the day. The natural sugars will sit if you eat late at night. Trust me, we did that for a week and didn't lose a pound. ARGH!|
|This was an interesting dinner. The husband made homemade salsa, and an egg/avocado omelet with a side of cauliflower 'stuffing'. Doesn't look all that pretty, but was delicious.|
|Beef stir fry, instead of soy sauce and traditional rice, we used balsamic vinegar and cauliflower.|
|Chicken stir fry...|
|Many of our meals are simple, the same stuff we ate before the whole30. Meat, and two veggies. This time it was okra and asparagus. (Sad, sad asparagus.) ;)|
We've had a lot of people ask about the cauliflower rice. I'll do a separate blog on that since there are numerous ways to spice it up and change the taste.
* We're on week 17 now and I've lost 35lbs, the husband 30lbs. We splurge, we don't exercise (hoping to change that) and we don't worry too much. I will go a month and not lose a pound, then one week 5. So I just keep moving forward because I have more energy, my clothes keep getting looser and my joints feel 100% better.
