There is no calorie counting and you're not allowed to step on a scale. We've stripped inflammatory foods (sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) from our diet and are allowing our bodies to heal and recover from the effects those foods may be causing. We're on Day 9 of the program and Mike hasn't had indigestion at all! Meanwhile, I have a lot more energy and my unexplained aches and pains are gone completely. Here are some of the meals we've been eating on the Whole30. Ingredients include; meat, seafood, vegetables, fruit and good fats.
Breakfast: Eggs, kale, sweet potato hash and berries.
Dinner: Chicken curry with cauliflower "rice".
When I am eating whole foods, I am never hungry. Everything has been delicious too. Also, I am currently in a 5K Running Room clinic and since starting the Whole30, my legs never feel like lead. I can't wait to see how we feel on Day 30. I promise to update you on our results.
And some more moments we've been enjoying:
Baby's first booties. Yes, they have roses on them!
I gave up Facebook for Lent this year. I even gave Mike permission to change my password because I didn't trust myself. Pathetic right? I plan to write more on this subject in the future, but I will say I feel more relaxed and patient when I am engaging in the real world. Speaking of Lent, our Easter gift project is underway. We planted those seeds two days ago. Look at em' grow!
