This Whole30 feels like its going way faster than the last one. It just feels normal now, like I’m just eating. I don’t overthink it all (which is new for me). Before the last Whole30 and this one I cleared all my cupboard and fridge. It’s nice to know I can just go for the food in my house and eat it, no guilt. I definitely recommend this, especially on your first time – it’s so easy to fall off the wagon if there are quick, easy treats at arms length.
I bought an immersion blender this week. So shit got exciting. Hello, Paleo Mayo!
If you’ve missed the previous posts, weeks one, two and three are here, here and here.
This week sage has become my favourite herb. So much so, I want to name mine and Phil’s first daughter after it but he’s not having any of it. Especially, if you already know his surname which he shares with a common vegetable (similar to a zucchini/courgette) he’s scared she’ll sound like a recipe. I was all, mate, she’s a reflection of us and I LOVE cooking! He’s still not keen…
You can see week’s one and two here and here. You can see what I ate this week, below:
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.).
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.
