What I Ate: Week 1 Whole 30 Food Diary + Week 2 Menu Plan

Week 1 (Round 3) of the whole 30 went pretty good.  I found myself enjoying and repeating many meals.  I tend to get stuck in eating the same thing over and over, so I really try to branch out and try different meals for dinner.  I also learned I wasn’t taking enough time to meal prep this week.  My breakfasts clearly show that.  Not being able to eat eggs (due to my baby’s FPIES) is frustrating doing something like the Whole30.  My first round through I ate SO MANY eggs because they are not only easy, it’s easy to do different things with them.

Any suggestions for non-egg based breakfasts?

So this week I will be doing more meal preps and hopefully not relying on larabars as a quick go to as they are technically a no-no on the whole30.  As a reminder – I am also breastfeeding my baby who at 12 months old still can’t eat real food due to allergies. As a result I am not skimping on nuts, fruit, or snacks if I am hungry.  I am packing my diet with healthy fats, and plenty of root veggies to make sure my supply stays good.  I went into this 3rd round of whole 30 struggling with my milk supply, and I’m happy to say it is finally looking like it’s rebounding! Yay!

 Week 2 Meal Plan:

Are you a person who likes to eat the same things if it works for you, or do you like to change it up?

I like to think that I like to try different foods, but when you put it in front of me, sometimes I’m “eeeeh, where’s the beef?” LOL.For a non-egg based breakfast, I enjoy making fruit smoothies (strawberries, bananas, OJ, & sometimes pineapple.)

I eat very similar to your food choices, but have not tried an actual paleo diet. I love the good fats.. especially avocado and olive oil. I use them alot! I really need to try the lettuce wraps.. I always forget about them. lol

All these meals look great – I would miss my bread through. Sadly, our breakfasts are very bread based – we need to change that!

Wow, what a thorough menu plan. I have tried many times to do a menu plan but with a tight budget, sometimes no income coming in from me due to me only doing writing as a job – it makes it hard to plan. I hope to get back to planning again soon. I love what you have on the menu!

Looks like some good meals that you had! I’m also one that will get into a food rut – I hate experimenting with new foods at times, so i tend just to eat the same thing
