Another week down! And I can't believe I only have a week left. Doing the Whole 30 has been a challenge, but the benefits in the short amount of time have been pretty remarkable. My anxiety that has crippled me since having Pier is completely gone, my energy levels are consistent, and my skin is clear for the first time since I was 10! That's HUGE.
Here's what my meals have been like on week 3:
Breakfasts looked a lot like this for the week...eggs, bacon, avocado and or sweet potato, and a bit of fruit. I know some people get sick of eggs for breakfast everyday but I LOVE them. And if you make them a different way every couple days you'll look forward to your eggs each morning!
Lunches were again leftovers or my ever faithful tuna salad over greens.
week 3 dinner menu:
Steak fajitas - these are easy, quick, and full of flavor...You also have enough for a few days of leftovers.
Greek stuffed bell peppers with Greek salad - These were filling and refreshing. It was a nice depart from my usual stuffed bell peppers.
Slow Cooker Chicken Caccitore over cauliflower rice
Pork Tenderloin with baked sweet potato and Greek salad - this is my favorite pork tenderloin recipe. Ina can do no wrong.
Foil packet Salmon with roasted broccoli - I love this salmon recipe, and it's frequently on my dinner menus. It's a unique spin on salmon, plus easy clean up!!!
Rosemary Chicken wrapped in Prosciutto and Greek salad - This is my go-to recipe when I don't know what I want to cook for the week. They are sooo delicious and simple enough to whip together when I don't have a lot of time.
And CHIPOTLE!!! We had a super busy weekend last week and I didn't have time to run the store and to cook dinner, so Chipotle it is ;)
I'm totally getting lazier as this thing goes on, so my snacking has stayed fairly the same. My favorite this week has been this olive-cucumber salad. Baby cucumbers, kalamata olives, and a splash of this dressing.
I'll let you know how my last week goes!
whole 30 tip of the week
Don't let yourself get hungry!!! For real. When I am hungry, I want all my favorite things (pizza, chocolate chip cookies, donuts, etc). As long as I stay on top of my hunger, I can get over my cravings fairly quickly and chose a healthy option over an unhealthy one.
