Whole 30: Day 22 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!


5:00 Black coffee

6:30 Cabbage and mushrooms with 2 eggs and 1/4 avocado

12:00 Beef patty, chicken strips (about 5 oz. meat total), tabbouleh, paleo hummus with bell pepper, cabbage rose, 1/3 c. sweet potato (not pictured)

Paleo mezze platter

3:00 Hard-boiled egg, 2 oz. chicken, tabbouleh, 4 pecans, banana

8:00 1/2 a sweet potato with grass-fed roasted marrow and watercress-pear salad

Food I’m starting to wonder if I should just accept that I eat 4 times a day. I needed a substantial snack because this is my late night at the gym, but I was hungry anyway. This may be something I look more closely at in a subsequent Whole 30 (like at the new year), but for now, I am trying to let go of the guilt and self-judgment that I keep experiencing when I think I’m “overeating”.

Mood Good mood – feeling lucky these days.

Sleep 7.5 – Woke up refreshed today. Love it.

Exercise Started the day off with yoga and some thoughts about how leading with the breath can impact the rest of our lives. Great way to begin my day! Followed that with an 11-11-11 workout at the gym. Tough but fun!

    • Oh my gosh! It was my first time trying this Well Fed 2 recipe. I’ve made tabbouleh salad, using everything but the bulgur, and it’s delicious, but this takes it up a notch. You rice cauliflower, put some melted ghee on it, bake until golden, add the rest of your stuff – and voila! Transformed.
