Whole30 Week 1 Recap

I did it! 1 week of 100% Whole30! (well, minus tomorrow but I wanted to write this post today).

It was actually way easier than I expected. The only thing I got cravings for was cereal in the afternoon sometimes. I think it’s easier for me than for my mom because I had pretty much cut out grains and dairy before starting this challenge, so my body was pretty much used to it. Here is what I ate this week for those who are interested!

Day 1

Meal 1: 3 scrambled eggs with mushrooms

Meal 2: mixed greens, tuna, sliced strawberries, 1/2 avocado salad

Meal 3: I don’t remember if I had a meal between lunch and dinner…but if I did it may have been a larabar

Meal 4: spaghetti squash chicken alfredo

Day 2

Meal 1: 3 scrambled eggs with mushrooms

Meal 2: 1 apple with almond butter

Meal 3: spaghetti squash chicken alfredo leftovers

Meal 4: chicken sausage, larabar (pre 8 mile run)

Meal 5: tuna with broccoli (post 8 mile run)

Meal 6: balsamic chicken with spices and sweet potato

Day 3

Meal 1: 2 hardboiled eggs, 1 chicken sausage, 1/2 avocado

Meal 2: mixed greens, tuna, almonds, 1/2 avocado

Meal 3: grapes and cashews (pre workout)

Meal 4: chicken burgers with watercress salad

Day 5

Meal 1: 2 chicken sausage, 1/2 avocado

Meal 2: chicken leftovers with mixed greens

Meal 3: grapes, cashews

Meal 4: chicken, organic tomato sauce, cauliflower rice (recipe coming soon!)

Day 6:

Meal 1: 2 chicken sausage, 1/2 avocado

Meal 2: chicken + cauliflower rice leftovers

Meal 3: 2 hardboiled eggs, 1/2 larabar (pre workout)

Meal 4: other 1/2 larabar (post workout)

Meal 5: beef with mushrooms, mixed green salad with tomatoes and 1/2 avocado, 4 strawberries post-dinner

Day 7 (today so far)

Meal 1: 2 eggs, 1/2 avocado

Meal 2: chicken with crushed tomatoes, peppers, onions, tomato sauce

 

Overall, this week has been great and I have been feeling great. Some meals are repetitive throughout my week but I’m ok with that. I like being in a routine. I try to switch it up sometimes for breakfast at least (well, with eggs and chicken sausage). But I love finding new dinner recipes to try out…we’ll see what I can make this upcoming week!

Question for those who have done Whole30 and also been endurance training: How do you fuel for long runs? I’ve read raisins are good, and dried fruit. Help!
