Since finishing, we’ve been trying to stick mainly to the plan during the week, with weekends and special occasions open to more things. It’s been working well, but we got a little bit crazy over a stretch of birthdays, holidays and company. We decided to do a little reset before our trip to New York and did a Whole9. It was great to lose some bloating I had gotten from foods and just to feel really good before our trip. If you’ve done a Whole30, I think it’s a good way to just get back to good habits. If you haven’t and 30 days seems like a ton, maybe try a 9 day to see how it goes. If you like it, eat the same meals 2 more times and you’re almost to 30!
Here’s what we ate for 9 days:
Breakfast: Egg scramble with spinach and onion, 1/2 avocado, blueberries
Lunch: Almond butter, banana, almond milk and ice, blended. (Not the greatest lunch, but that day was a hurried one!)
Dinner: Cobb salad with boiled egg, grilled flank steak, tomatoes, avocado, purple onion, olive oil and balsamic.
Breakfast: Egg wrap with spinach and onion. (Scramble eggs in a bowl, then pour into a large pan so it’s very thin. Cook through, fill and roll up. Yummy topped with salsa!)
Lunch: Lettuce leaves with turkey slices and guacamole and a La Croix.
Lunch: Spinach topped with Applegate oven roasted turkey, green apple, pecans and purple onion.
Dinner: Grilled chicken, green beans, roasted potato thins.
– I get frozen peppers and onions that are chopped and it makes breakfast much faster. You can throw a handful in with your eggs and spinach for a delicious breakfast.
– Applegate Oven Roasted Turkey from the deli is compliant. The sliced kind in the sealed bag is not. I always keep it on hand because it’s an easy protein source to throw on a salad or in some lettuce leaves in a hurry.
– Variety is key. Now that I’m used to the foods that are okay and the ones that aren’t, I just keep my fridge stocked with a big variety of meats and vegetables. It really isn’t that difficult, when you have the foods available to you.
