Whole30 Week 1 & 2
Hope you guys had a great weekend. I had a three day weekend so I'm happy.
Spent most of the time on my couch watching old episodes of Law and Order: SVU.
Don't feel sad for me, I was chilling and relaxing. I also had brunch with some dear friends, so I did get out of the house.
Ok, so this is week I am heading into my 3rd week of my Whole30 journey. Whole30 is Paleo amped. It's a more restrictive Paleo meant to really get those cravings for sugar, carbs and any other non-paleo foods out of your system.
I decided this was the way to go to get the new year started since I pretty much exercised no control over my eating while in Thailand.
I have to say that it really isn't hard to live a Paleo lifestyle. Well let me say it this way actually, if you're preparing your meals at home it isn't hard. If you're eating out a lot then you will experience many challenges. My cravings for sugar and carb are pretty much gone. I actually crave veggies if I have cravings. Weird!
These are some of my meals over the past two weeks. I usually make egg muffins and eat those for breakfast during the week. I love eggs so it's not a problem to eat them every day. I also make Chia pudding if I run out of egg muffins.
Over the weekend I also tried my hand at making mayo. It turned out really well . I used Olive Oil but will try a lighter oil next time such as grapeseed.
After Whole30, I plan to loosen up a bit with my eating but stay Paleo compliant.
Wish me luck!
