Whole 30: Week 3 Day 15-21

We made it to Week 3!  Week 3 was harder than week 2, but more for emotional reasons versus withdrawals 🙂  I realize for me, being a girl that a lot of my food issues are related to emotions.  If you think about it…we celebrate…with eating, if you feel bad…you eat…if you go out with friends…you eat…if there is a holiday…you eat…you see what I am saying!  A lot of social things revolve around food and I noticed this week that I missed eating some of my “favorite bad foods”…specifically in the afternoon or after dinner when I would usually “reward” myself with an indulgent snack.  There were a couple of days that I allowed myself a small snack…like nuts or fruit, but mostly I just reminded myself that what I am striving for is SO much greater than what I want right now (the food or snack).  That is HUGE progress for me! not-so-crunchy-mom-whole-30-Well-Fed-2.jpg

Another reason Week 3 was hard…I was tired of eating the same thing!  It wasn’t REALLY the same thing…but coming up with different vegetables EACH meal is a lot of vegetables.  I did go ahead and purchase Well Fed 2 by Melissa Joulwan and that has helped SO MUCH!  We have made so many of her recipes in her book and they are all SO good!!  Seriously…SO GOOD!!

Day 16

  • Breakfast:  Frittata with Fruit
  • Lunch:  Turkey lunch meat, sauerkraut, sweet potato with ghee, olives, horseradish mustard mayo sauce and fruit
  • Dinner:  It was a Girls Night Dinner and Event, so I packed my own Taco Salad to eat with them at the restaurant (because I was still too scared to order out) and fruit and nuts to have in case I was tempted by the cute & sugary snacks that were bound to be there 🙂  But, good news, I didn’t even need my fruit and nuts…it was totally fine!
