Yesterday was an extremely full day and honestly being on Whole30 made it easier. I didn’t have to waste time trying to figure out what to eat or eat my emotions out after attending a funeral. I kept it simple and used up a lot of the leftovers in the fridge. Here was yesterday’s meal plan:
Breakfast: I ordered nutpods and they arrived Friday so I couldn’t wait to try my first one on Saturday morning with coffee. I did black coffee and cinnamon and I could continue to do it but just wasn’t enjoying it as much. Hazelnut is pretty good but excited to try the other too! Breakfast was simple – egg scramble with sausage and mushrooms.
Lunch: I led a yoga & oils meet-up for Lole Royal Oak at Shanti Yoga and brought my lunch to the studio. Adding the lettuce helped keep these rollups intact and added a nice crunch. While I’ve eaten this meal a few times this week, even minor adjustments made it feel new and still satisfying.
Dinner: I worked the Red Wings game last night and instead of the normal media meal – which usually includes a slice of pizza, I brought spaghetti squash with crushed tomatoes, mushrooms, brussels sprouts and sausage. Unintentionally I poured the sauce into a heart shape – this hit the spot. Old habits are hard to break. Usually during the game, I might have a cup of popcorn so instead I brought blueberries – which tasted even better.
It’s been interesting having conversations around Whole30 and noticing what people are willing or not willing to give up even for 30 days. I know it’s all personal and what’s most important to you. Right now, this Whole30 is about getting clear on what works for me and what doesn’t — food, relationships, work — all of it. It’s about creating more awareness on my choices and the impact they have on all the areas of my life. ❤ If you’re doing Whole30, what’s your why?
