Whole 30 Day 1

I had a few slip-ups during my original run at the Whole 30. Looking back, I can see that those things happened mostly because I wasn’t prepared. I wasn’t prepared with emergency snacks, and my meal planning was very lacking (or non-existent.) For a successful Whole 30, I think that meal planning is absolutely essential. We went on a weekend trip to Oklahoma City and I decided that I would completely start my Whole 30 over when we got back. Yesterday I did a meal plan, went grocery shopping, and I am waiting for my Thrive Market order, which should arrive today or tomorrow. Yesterday was day 0. It was supposed to be Whole 30 day 1 but I had a few bites of non-compliant food. Nothing too bad but I didn’t want to technically start over again until today. This time, I am going to keep a food diary on here. I will detail what I eat, and maybe add some pictures! I am really excited to have a friend doing the Whole 30 at the same time (she started yesterday) because I really think that having a support system is very important during the Whole 30! I am also including any food prep that I do, because I feel like that’s an important.

Enough with my rambling, here is my food diary for the Whole 30 Day 1!
Whole 30 Day 1 | A Whole 30 food diary + whole 30 mayo recipe!

Breakfast:

2 cups of black coffee

3 boiled eggs and homemade mayo + some leftover stir fry carrots

Lunch:

Grilled chicken

Spinach smoothies

Dinner:

Paleo Chili (stew meat, ground beef, sweet potatoes)

Snack:

1.5 Apple Pie Lara Bars (my little one and I shared)

Food prep done today:

Made a double batch of homemade mayo

Made a double batch of homemade ranch

Made strawberry applesauce for the kids (and husband)

Whole 30 Mayo Recipe:

1 pint bottle of extra light tasting olive oil

2 room temperature eggs

2 tsp mustard powder

2 tsp salt

juice of one lemon

Put the eggs, lemon juice, mustard powder, salt and some of the olive oil (maybe 1/8 to 1/4 of the the jar) into a blender. Pulse on low just to mix all of the ingredients. Now SLOOOOOOOOOOWLY add the rest of the olive oil from the top. Seriously, slowly. Take 2-3 minutes to slowly drizzle the rest of the olive oil in while you pulse the blender on low. The ingredients will start to take on a whipped consistency. That’s it! It’s very easy and so good!

  1. I do a 21-day challenge that is very similar to the Whole 30 and it is TOUGH. You’re so right though … my mistakes only come when I’m not prepared. The eating isn’t the hardest thing; the meal prep is! There is a paleo mayo from Primal Kitchen that I love and I think it works for the Whole 30 too! It might cut down on your meal prep time to use it!

    1. Exactly! Being prepared is so important. They sell the same Mayo on Thrive Market but the prep time is next to nothing so I don’t mind making it! I did learn to make a double batch though, otherwise we go through it too fast!

  2. I m freaking out but also ready!! It was hard to get up and make breakfast to eat while drinking my coffee..I did it though! Here is to a new me a new you and a Happy Healthy 2014!
