Whole 30: Week One

Day 1:

Today, I found out corn counts as a grain. I would now like to die. I just freaking bought sweet potato tortilla chips. And they’re so freaking good! I’ve been looking forward to them all day. And now I can’t have them. Let’s hope the regular sweet potato chips I bought are just as good because I need a good pick me up!

Breakfast: Half a Chocolate Sea Salt RX Bar & a bottle of water as I ran out the door

Lunch: Pork chop, half a sliced apple & a bottle of water

Snack: Other half of the Chocolate Sea Salt RX Bar & a bottle of water

Dinner: Meatballs & potatoes

After Dinner Snack: Sweet Potato Chips & a tangerine

Day 2:

Not feeling great. But it’s the start of the weekend, so I’m just going to lay around all day and do a whole lot of nothing. woke up late and didn’t really feel like cooking myself much, so shoved some frozen hash browns in a pan and it was delicious! Also, Sweet Potato Chips are not nearly as good at the Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips. They’re fine I guess, but its not the same.

Lunch: Hash browns

Dinner: Meatballs & 3 tbsp tomato sauce

After Dinner Snack: 2 Tangerines

Day 3:

Spent half the day cleaning & the other half meal-prepping for the start of the week. At least I’ll have food for most of the week already made! I didn’t eat much today. Still wasn’t feeling great.

Lunch: Meatballs & 3 tbsp tomato sauce

Snack: 2 Tangerines

Late Night Snack: Sweet Potato Chips & Macadamia Nuts

Day 4:

It turns out I do NOT like pork butt. It just tastes like huge sections of fat & I can’t get behind that. But that’s okay. I’m trying to find the kinds of foods that I like, which means I’m gonna find some stuff I don’t like.

People, I like spaghetti squash!! I hate vegetables. I’m aware of that. But I actually like this stuff. Like I’m not just shoving it down. It’s actually delicious!

Morning Snack: Handful of Macadamia nuts & bottle of water

Lunch: Pork Butt, Mashed Potatoes & bottle of water

Snack: 1/2 of a Maple Sea Salt RX Bar & a handful of Macadamia nuts

Dinner: Spaghetti Squash, Meatballs & Tomato Sauce

After Dinner Snack: Pineapple & Pomegranate Seeds

Day 5:

I’m so freaking hungry! I’ve been hungry all day. I didn’t have enough meat to go with the spaghetti squash so I only ended up with 2 meatballs. So after lunch, I just walked around work starving. Spent the whole day craving a burger & boy was it good!

Lunch: Spaghetti Squash, Meatballs & Tomato Sauce & bottle of water

Snack: Pineapple Slices & 2 bottles of water

Dinner: Hamburger patty & a Coke Zero

Day 6:

I don’t hate the riced cauliflower. I added garlic powder & Italian seasoning when I sautéed it and it actually was pretty good. Definitely not the same as rice. Don’t lie to your self and think it will be. But it wasn’t half bad.

I ate dinner at my parents house tonight. Yes, I ate Hawaiian rolls. They are definitely not Whole30 approved. But damn they were good. I’m gonna be totally honest. I regret nothing.

Breakfast: Handful of Macadamia nuts, pineapple & a bottle of water

Lunch: Sautéed garlic shrimp, riced cauliflower & bottle of water

Dinner: Ribs, chicken thighs & Hawaiian rolls

Day 7:

Ate leftover chicken thighs & ribs for lunch. DELICIOUS!

Breakfast: Handful of Macadamia nuts & a bottle of water

Lunch: 2 ribs, chicken thigh & a bottle of water

Snack: Macadamia nuts & a bottle of water

Dinner: Meatballs & Tomato Sauce


Overall, I think I’m going to enjoy this month. This is incredibly restricting, which is going to be a bit of a pain & I can already see that I’m probably going to end up trying to find like 5 meals I like & just stick to that mostly. I’m lazy & making food is hard! I’m finding new things that I actually like. I like cooking at home for me & Austin. What I never liked was the amount of tie it took for me to make dinner every night. But I’m finding things I like that don’t take too much time. Anything that shortens my cooking time down I like. I haven’t really eaten out yet, so I’m not sure how I will handle it when that happens, but as far as eating in, I think i’m getting the hang of it.

I know this isn’t supposed to be a “diet”, but I thought every week I would share what sort of results I have seen from it.

Starting Weight: 154.0

1 Week in: 152.4


Have any of you tried Whole30? I would love to know some tips & tricks!!
