a candid look at whole30: day fourteen
I got better at whole30. I would still consider myself a “bad” whole30 participant, but when I do this challenge again and have the money to eat the way it requires me to, I will be a badass whole30-er who actually has time to cook the meals she does once in two weeks all the way through.
- Tiny Tea (this is available in our office so I’ve just been taking it)
- hard boiled egg
- Larabar — if I’m being perfectly honest, this was more out of boredom. I’m trying to not rely on bars despite their deliciousness.
- salmon filet that I meal prepped the night before
- pistachios — goddamn they’re so addicting.
- Banana and almond butter
dinner: THIS IS WHERE I WAS PROUD OF MYSELF
- one sweet potato in the form of baked chips (more difficult than you’d think)
- five jumbo scallops with whole30 compliant bacon and dill herbs
- orange juice — I’m not a huge OJ person, but I’ve really enjoyed it when I’m in need of something on the sweeter side that’s still Whole30.
For a while, I haven’t really been feeling any difference in my body over the past two weeks aside from digestive issues. Of course, that in itself is most likely my body flushing out all the “bad” things that I’ve been inhaling (i.e. my favorite foods ice cream, donuts and pie).
People kept telling me that I’d gain a lot of energy throughout this process, and I haven’t felt that yet. I already have so much energy to begin with that I don’t know if I’ve noticed a difference just yet.
