Whole 30 Challenge Days 1 & 2

Welp, I’ve officially made it 2 full days into the Whole 30 Challenge! 28 more days to go! Blerg.

So far it really hasn’t been that bad. Here’s what I’ve been eating:

Day 1:
Breakfast: Chicken Sausage “Hash” with sweet potatoes/celery
Snack: Lara Bar
Lunch: Homemade veggie stir fry with coconut aminos in place of soy sauce
Dinner: Homemade burrito bowl over broccoli slaw

Day 2:
Breakfast: Chicken Sausage “Hash”
Lunch: Homemade veggie stir fry with coconut aminos
Snack: Apple Chips
Dinner: Chicken Burger with Avocado, Brussel Sprouts, Sweet Potato Fries, and Unsweetened Applesauce

Things I Miss: 

I’m still really missing milk. and Peanut Butter. Those are pretty much the only things I miss and crave. Also, it sucks to open up the pantry and see Nutella in there. Greta comes this week, so I’m craving all sorts of bad foods, but trying to suck it up and eat what I’m supposed to. I haven’t really been missing brown rice/quinoa too much, but I think its just a mental thing. Part of my brain wants to believe that I HAVE to eat a grain/carb at every meal, when I don’t really need to.

Things That Are Weird: 

Breakfast. I’ve never really been a breakfast food lover, but the idea of eating dinner-type foods for breakfast is kind of weird to me. I typically eat an English muffin w/ peanut butter for breakfast. But now I’m eating chicken sausage, sweet potatoes, and celery. Again, just another mental thing.

Things I’m Struggling With: 

Snacks. And making sure I’m eating enough. With Whole 30, you’re supposed to be eating enough at breakfast, lunch, and dinner to where snacks are not really necessary. HOWEVER, since I’m running and working out, I need a bit more to keep the fire burning. Since I also work a full-time job, it’s hard to keep fresh snacks on hand that are Whole 30 approved. I did find some Apple Chips at Whole Foods and they were delicious. The ingredients? Fuji apples. That’s it! The only downside is they are so expensive (about $2.99 for a small bag). I also bought a few Lara Bars that I’ll be eating as well.

How I’m Feeling: 

Other than impending Greta, I’m doing just fine so far. A slight headache is starting to set in at the end of day 2, however, I’m not too sure if its because of stress, Greta, or not eating enough.  The always say the first few days are the hardest to let your body acclimate…and it is tough…but not as bad as it could be.

Looking forward to continuing on!
