Day 7 Whole30

Friday, September 13, 2013

This morning I woke up not feeling very refreshed and I did drag my feet a fair bit today, I had another wee power nap during my lunch break! Days 6-7 is known as "All I wanna do is nap", I still can't get over how spot on this timeline has been for me.  

Before I started this Whole30 I would consider my diet was pretty 80-90% Primal for the last almost 5 years (expect about 6 months where I was about 50/50), the biggest change has been dropping the dairy (mostly cream, butter and a little bit of cheese) and the dark chocolate, even though it was 85% the majority of the time I was definitely over eating it, is it not ok to have chocolate with your breakfast? ;)

I am feeling pretty damn stoked that I've made it to day 7 without those indulgences, I'm really enjoying all the veggies, so much so that I ate cauliflower with my breakfast, never thought I would ever in my life do that! I mean sure I can eat spinach, mushrooms, tomato or peppers without ever thinking I was eating "vegetables" with breakfast, but cauliflower...what have I turned into!! I'm sure there will be a time during this Whole30 that I will not want to eat this many veggies, but for now I'm loving it.

We went out to dinner for my sisters birthday last night, I knew that the food would be mostly meat so that wasn't a problem but I was a little bit worried about the additives like soy, sugar, wheat, butter etc..considering I'm doing a Whole30.

One of the positives about living in a small town is one of the owners of Snug Lounge (cocktail bar) follows my page so she knew that I wouldn't be able to eat the sauces etc, so she very kindly offered that the chefs can do mine without the extra stuff and they even shredded me some cabbage, I was so blown away buy how accommodating they were, super awesome! The standard feast is $25 "Chow Down", it's all you can eat of skewers like pork belly, peri peri spiced sirloin, prawns, calamari, mussels, chicken etc... So suffice to say I was in heaven!!!

8 hours sleep
7am: Cauliflower and Egg Curry - made with coconut cream
12.45pm: Leftover smoked chicken breast from the weber tossed with homemade mayo, leftover smoked pumpkin and kumara (sweet potato), served on a salad of buttercrunch lettuce, cucumber and cherry tomatoes. 1 Tablespoon Coconut Manna

  1. Hey you have inspired me to also try this. I am on day 5. I read Whole Food some months ago. Also like you, I have been eating primal. And like you too much 85% dark choc! Unlike you however, I never had any significant weight loss beyond 2 kilos. I eat a lot of greek yoghurt and a lot of cheese and a lot of dark choc.
    I had killer headaches/migraines/hangovers for day 3 and 4. I really was not prepared for the force of them. Nurofen plus didn't kill them.
    It is going to be a very interesting journey. I am really enjoying reading about yours :)
    The grieving thing is interesting. And I was surprised like you to realise how sweet are macadamias!
    Loving your blog it's very inspirational.
    Cheers Claire
