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!
2 cups of black coffee
3 boiled eggs and homemade mayo + some leftover stir fry carrots
Paleo Chili (stew meat, ground beef, sweet potatoes)
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!
