Whole 30: Day 16 Recap

doing whole 30 image12

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!


5:30 Black coffee

8:00 Buffalo Breakfast Squash with 2 eggs

12:30 Leftover lunch: Cuban beef patty, Zucchini soup, Fennel salad, Beef stew (A bunch of snack-sized things hanging around to equal about 4 oz. meat, some fat, and loads of veggies.)

2:30 Apple with 1 T. coconut butter, 1 1/2 oz. port tenderloin

4:30 Banana

6:00 Ethiopian Chicken Stew

Food I was hungry from about lunch on today. Not sure if it’s the lack of sleep, maybe too small a lunch? Maybe just the day.

Mood I am in a nice, steady, calm place today.

Sleep 6.5 hours. Woke up in the middle of the night and had some trouble getting back to sleep. No idea what that’s about, but it might make my energy or cravings a little crazy.

Exercise Rest day!

  1. Ethiopian Chicken Stew … yum! This sounds good!
    I am envious of your calm steady place. I don’t think I’ve been there for some time. Oh, and I love doing that for lunch…clean out the fridge snack lunch. Yum

    • The Ethiopian Chicken Stew is not quite ready for posting, but it will definitely make it up there! I am not sure exactly where the calm comes from. It might be the steady energy and blood sugar. It could also be some hormonal evening out that happens. It might just be the relief from choice, which makes me a little nervous about the end approaching.
