Whole 30: Day 12 Recap


I’m doing a Whole 30 for a couple of reasons: 1) I want to feel great from the inside out, 2) Putting some stricter guidelines around my food choices keeps me from getting distracted by things that might otherwise tempt me, and 3) Sometimes it takes a while to reap the benefits of a change and having a timeline provides the structure and encouragement I need when I begin to feel impatient.

I plan to share what I eat each day to help me accurately judge what my body needs and to, hopefully, provide a little inspiration or planning assistance if you’re trying to figure out your day as well. If you have questions about anything, please leave me a comment.

Everyone is different, so I hope you don’t judge me too harshly by what I eat. And maybe you’ll see something that resonates with you and, in that case, excellent! If not, I’ll be posting different recipes on the blog too, so don’t despair!

Here’s to the journey!


5:00 Black coffee

8:00 Collard greens and mushrooms with 2 scrambled eggs, 1/4 avocado, a drizzle of vinaigrette, 2 apple slices

10:00 Post-workout tuna, 1/4 c. sweet potato concoction

1:45 Chicken breast and pizza cauliflower

5:30 Red Curry Seafood and Eggs on Crunchy Asian Slaw, banana

8:30 Tea, handful of raw nut trail mix

Food I was so busy today it felt like all of my meals were rushed. I sat down for them (except the post-wo), but barely. I definitely prefer it when I can sit and enjoy what I’m eating. Being present really helps me keep it all together.

Mood Thank goodness for steady energy! Strong, confident mood today. I like it.

Sleep 7.5 hours. Pretty steady now.

Exercise Tough workout today, particularly since my knee is bothering me. I modified what I needed to and got 40 minutes of row-push ups-wall balls-run done!

    • I wish it were my recipe because it’s brilliant! But it’s from Well Fed 2 (which almost automatically makes it brilliant anyway). I will post the chicken at some point, it needs a little tweaking, but the concept behind the pizza cauliflower (or broccoli) is that you roast it with some pizza-like seasonings and toppings and the whole thing is delicious.
