Time for my Whole 30 Meals for Week 4! I’ve finished!
I can’t believe I’ve finished already! For me 30 days went by quickly, mostly because I enjoyed what I was eating and how I was feeling. I will do a full re-cap on what I thought and how I feel in a later entry. I loved all of my Whole 30 meals this week!
BREAKFAST: Leftover Sausage patties from the Whole30 Breakfast Sandwiches, sweet potato and egg “hash browns” and wilted spinach
LUNCH: Leftover Lemon Garlic Rosemary Roasted Chicken Thigh, steamed brocolli and roasted potatoes
DINNER: Stuffed bell pepper
SNACKS: pecans, Thunderbird Cacao-Hemp-Walnut bar
I didn’t feel as hungry today as I normally do. I usually get at least a little hungry in between meals. I think it might be due to the rest I’m getting and not working out because of my knee. And also eating less fruit. The sugar in fruit tends to make me feel hungrier.
BREAKFAST: Same as yesterday–sausage patties, sweet potato hash and spinach
LUNCH: Leftover pork carnitas over lettuce with avocado
DINNER: Leftover Ribeye steak, steamed broccoli and roasted potatoes
SNACKS: Kombucha, spoonful of sunbutter
BREAKFAST: Crio Bru blended with coconut oil, Leftover pork sausage patties, sweet potato hash
LUNCH: Leftover Creamy Chicken with Artichokes and Mushrooms
DINNER: Grilled Aidell’s Chicken-Apple Sausage, Fried green plantains and steamed broccoli
SNACKS: Thunderbird Cacao-Walnut-Hemp bar, raw almonds, kombucha
BREAKFAST: Aidell’s Chicken-Apple Sausage, spinach and half a fried green plantain
LUNCH: Leftover stuffed pepper, avocado
DINNER: Grilled tilapia, half a sweet potato and asparagus
SNACKS: Toasted coconut chips, raw almonds
BREAKFAST: Leftover sausage from Whole30 Breakfast Sandwiches with Homemade Pork-Apple Sausage, spinach and sweet potato toast with almond butter
LUNCH: Leftover Creamy Chicken with Artichokes and Mushrooms
DINNER: We went to Fuddrucker’s, and I had an elk burger with a fried egg, onions, tomatoes and mustard on a bed of lettuce with some apple slices on the side. Pretty good!
BREAKFAST: We went to one of our local weekly spots and I asked for a veggie omelette with no cheese and not cooked in dairy (green peppers, onions and mushrooms) and a side of fruit.
LUNCH: Salata – I got a salad with smoked turkey, kale, spinach, blueberries, strawberries, almonds, avocado and olive oil.
DINNER: I made a Whole30 Pad Thai, which was flippin delicious! So good!
BREAKFAST: We went to a local spot in Austin that uses local meat and eggs and make their own stuff. I got some scrambled eggs (which were good and tasted so fresh!), their sausage which is homemade and delicious, and their home potatoes, which are just seasoned with spices and cooked in canola oil (which I know you want to limit but I’ve been good at avoiding it until now).
LUNCH: We went to a locked room with 6 other people in the afternoon, and wanted to get lunch afterwards. I didn’t want to be the deciding factor in a group of 8 people that were hungry and wanted to eat, so they chose a local bar-be-que place. This is probably the only time my whole 30 meals was questionable. They use a dry rub to smoke their meats, but I’m not sure what is in it. I got my brisket dry with no sauce and got a salad on the side with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and lemon juice for the dressing. I forgot to take a picture.
DINNER: Whole30 Orange Cashew Chicken, which was pretty tasty!!
SNACKS: Banana with almond butter
BREAKFAST: Three Meat and Sweet Potato Casserole and a banana
LUNCH: Leftover Orange Cashew Chicken
DINNER: Crockpot Green Chile Chicken from Stupid Easy Paleo on lettuce wraps with avocado
SNACKS: Pecan pie larabar, kombucha
So Day 30 did not go exactly how we had planned, and I was not fully Whole30 compliant. For the next two days I was, which is why I included Day 31 and 32 on here. Day 30 happened to be on David’s birthday, so I did not have the best whole 30 meals. They were more like Half 30.
BREAKFAST: We had an early movie planned at Moviehouse and Eatery, and I was planning to order the breakfast tacos off of their brunch menu and just eat the eggs and potatoes, but we found out when we arrived that their brunch is only served on weekends (which it did not say on the website). So I had to make a quick decision on something off the regular menu. I was pretty hungry, and I was in the mood for breakfast food, so nothing seemed to appealing to me. I ended up getting their all-beef hotdog and just eating it without a bun with mustard. It was good, but since I didn’t have time to research and email management or anything, I am pretty sure it was processed and not Whole30 compliant.
LUNCH: We had planned to get BBQ, but the late lunch threw us off and we weren’t hungry enough for BBQ. We went to one of our favorite Mexican places and I got breakfast, which was just eggs with chorizo.
DINNER: David wanted ribeye’s again, so we bought a couple and he grilled them up. On the side I made bacon-wrapped asparagus and baked potatoes.
BREAKFAST: Three Meat and Sweet Potato Casserole and a small handful of almonds
LUNCH: Leftover Chicken Pad Thai
DINNER: Pork Meatballs with sweet potato noodles
SNACKS: mixed nuts, kombucha
BREAKFAST: Three Meat and Sweet Potato Casserole and half a plantain
LUNCH: Leftover Ribeye, half a sweet potato and steamed broccoli
DINNER: Burgers with a fried egg and grilled sweet potato wedges
SNACKS: raw almonds
How I feel: This week was another week of delicious Whole 30 meals and feeling great! My energy levels were great for the most part. The week my knee was injured and I didn’t exercise my energy wasn’t as good as it normally was, but it wasn’t too bad, I wasn’t falling asleep at my desk or anything. My stomach still felt great and I didn’t have the normal acid reflux/indigestion/nausea/bloating that I have frequently. Stay tuned and I will do a proper recap with results, thoughts and feelings!
