Week 1

Ended the week with this beautiful salad, and a cup of raspberry coconut milk tapioca pudding for dessert.

Days 5 and 6

Well it's officially day 7 at this point, but I've been behind on the posts. I've had a very successful week on my second whole30 (minus the tiny slip up of one Negra Modelo at last night's going away party for a great co-worker). 

I've been averaging about 38 points a day, far over my allotted 26, even with weeklies. Despite that I know that this Whole30 is off to a rockin' start. I'm already feeling higher afternoon energy levels, less bloated, and am sleeping well. My sugar cravings are mostly gone.

Tonight my husband is breaking out his favorite cast-iron to cook me a chicken from the Zenbelly cookbook. Can't wait!

Day 3: 37 PP

I'd be having some serious doubts about these high daily points totals if I hadn't successfully completed a Whole30 in the past. Starting to feel somewhat guilty (though I know today was so high in part because I ate an entire avocado at dinner - 12 pp, that's nuts!)

Breakfast was my usually mix of fresh fruit and nuts for 7 pp. Lunch was last nights leftovers again, I was complimented in the lunch room for my healthy meals. I do not miss the days of lean cuisines or turkey on a sandwich thin and a 100 calorie pack. 

For dinner tonight I made one of my Paleo faves: a baked stuff sweet potato topped with ground beef (seasoned with my own taco mix), salsa, a pile of guac, and some jalapeños. ¡Que rico!

Day 2

Posted by Boogbite 0 comments
Day two. 35 points. Felt a bit sluggish today, starting to feel the first-week detox blues.

Breakfast, 7 points. Black coffee, apples, raisins, and a good sized handful of almonds. Doesn't sound very filling but it is!

Lunch was last nights leftovers (you'll see that is a trend here). 12 PP

Dinner: my Whole30 take on Chicken Parm (sans the parm, of course). 15 points, mainly from the ground almond meal crust and ghee/olive oil the chicken was pan-fried in.

Day one

Posted by Boogbite 0 comments
Here it is, the first day of my WWhole30. As I suspected, I went pretty far over my points allowance, but I don't in any way feel I went overboard in my eating in Whole30 terms.

Breakfast: 10 points. Shredded sweet potato hash browns cooked in bacon fat topped with two fried eggs. Black coffee. (This is at least twice the amount of Points I would let myself eat for breakfast if following WW.)

Snack: Some dried apricots and a passionfruit LaCroix. 2 points (I know this is a grey area with Whole30ers but I ate raisins and other dried fruits in my first round and it didn't negatively affect me.)

These are so good! Low points value
too, so great for either program.
Lunch: Two grass-fed hot dogs, a pile of roasted romanesco (yummers), an apple and some almond butter. 14 points.

Dinner: 14 points. 3 Spicy Tuna Cakes from Michelle Tam's Nom Nom Paleo (so nom!). Try them if you haven't. They're divine. Also a good size salad with half an avocado, a sprinkling of sunflower seeds, and Tessa Mae's Lemon Garlic vinagrette. My favorite.

Grand total for the day, 40 points. That far surpasses the 26 PointsPlus I'd be allowed if following Weight Watchers (even if you threw in 7 from my weeklies I still went a bit over).

Didn't feel hungry all day. Looking forward to day 2. :)
