Whole30 Week 2 Recap and Menu Plan

Whole 30 recap of days 8-14, including menu plan.

WooHoo! I’ve officially made it to the halfway point with Whole30!

I’ve been having mixed feelings about Whole30 so far- I really do like eating this way, but at times it is really inconvenient with my busy schedule. I know, I know, if I’m too busy to eat, I’m too busy!

Also, we celebrated my husband’s birthday this week and he wanted to go to our favorite Mexican restaurant. He actually prefers to get the food to-go and eat at home, so this made it possible for me to eat leftovers instead of trying to come up with some Whole30 approved/compromise meal at the restaurant. Kind of a bummer, but when I saw their boring, brown food compared to my bright and colorful food, I knew I’d made the right choice!

That is another thing I’ve noticed. My plates are always so colorful!! Red, yellow, green, pink, orange – I’m eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and I’m loving how colorful they are! It’s a pretty stark contrast to the typical American meal which is almost always a bland brownish color.

So, even though I miss sugar…and coffee, I’m really enjoying the food that I’m eating on Whole30!

My husband and kids ate the same things that I did, with a few exceptions. They ate breakfast burritos most mornings (scrambled egg, cheese, bacon, tortilla) and ate sandwiches on sprouted bread for lunch a couple of times. They also added ketchup and cheese when they wanted and sometimes I cooked something extra for them. For instance, when I made my mashed sweet potatoes I also made mashed white potatoes for them.

Water was my only beverage (with the exception of the above-noted kombucha) and I did not take any supplements except for my fermented cod liver oil.

Now, onto week 3!!
