I LOVE MARIA SEMPLE. It’s like she gets my humour. She writes these book for ME. I know it. After reading Where’d You Go, Bernadette I just HAD to read her latest novel.
This week, week two, Phil tried to break me by dangling a pizza flyer in my face and saying I could have a night off cooking. I won’t lie, I nearly faltered – but then I slapped that flyer down and told him to bin it. It felt goooooooooooood.
I was feeling good at the end of week one, no sugar hangovers and no drastic changes in weight. But I find it takes 2-3 weeks to really see the results.
If you missed week one, it’s over here.
Week two eats are below – I’ll admit, I ate some meals again, from week one. Because I LOVE THEM. I also tried out some brand new recipes! It’s cold, so we are eating lean roast meat quite a lot – it’s super packed with flavour and if you only add a small dollop of coconut oil to the roasting pan, it’s not greasy or fatty. Just be careful not to pick the fatty cuts of meat (ie. pork with crackling, drool.).
Last night tucked up in bed, Phil tells me he’s been looking at tickets for the Royal Marines Band performing at the Royal Albert Hall and that we should go AGAIN. He loves these guys – the drummers. No idea what his fascination with them is – but they’re his thing. We’ve been twice, that’s enough for me – they’re no Adele.
Then he insulted my nether regions…
When I did my first Whole 30 I remember my biggest question was “but what do you eat?!“. I’ve compiled my eats for the first week of my third Whole 30. Yeah, third time. How many times does it take to make one a Whole 30 addict? I think five times.
Read on for photos of food (because in 2017, this is all we take photos of), recipes and my thoughts on the days as they progress.
