Breakfast: Egg whites
Dinner: Chicken, veggies, mashed potatoes
Coconut milk and clarified butter are used to make these mashed potatoes and they taste just like any other mashed potato recipe! I don’t use exact amounts of either, I just add some butter then add milk until it is the thick and creamy texture I like and then I’ll sprinkle in pepper & garlic salt for extra flavor.
One product I frequently include in my diet, but might have to be checked for Whole30 compliance, is collagen powder. I heard of it through a couple different social media accounts that I follow, each saying how great it had been for their hair, skin, and nails so I was curious to try it out. My nails have always grown long, but I don’t think my hair has ever grown further than my collar bones…until I started adding collagen powder to my water and coffee. I’ve seen recipes for collagen smoothies, shakes, and juice but have yet to try any of those recipes for myself. I’m hooked on adding a scoop into a cup of coffee with a little almond or coconut milk, it tastes like a treat since I usually drink my coffee black. I’ve only tried thisbrand that I find at Marshall’s for ten dollars and it lasts me a couple months.
Breakfast: Egg whites, chicken, mashed potatoes, veggies

I know I’ve mentioned before how much I love having leftover dinner for the next days breakfast, but I’ll say it again: I LOVE LEFTOVERS. I’m capable of being a morning person when I need to be, but if I can use a K-Cup in my Keurig and leftover food to eat as breakfast, I am much more likely to start my day off happy and motivated as opposed to if I had to actually do work to feed my body.
This was a very filling first meal so I had a small lunch, but was hungry again for a big meal at dinner time. Usually I will only buy steak if I find a good sale, but during my Whole30 was willing to spend slightly more on grocery food since I only went out to eat once the entire month; to me the spending kind of equals out. Also, frozen veggies are great if you’re pressed for time, I eat them plain or with salt&pepper and/or hot sauce.
Lunch: Larabar, apple
Dinner: Steak, egg whites, carrots, potatoes
Breakfast: Chicken sausage (compliant)
Lunch: egg whites, banana
Dinner: Stuffed peppers – garlic, onion, ground beef, peppers
So it’s obvious now that I kind of had a lot of the same foods during Whole30, which I think made it easy to stick to. Preparing and making meals became easy in such a little amount of time and I already love the way I was feeling. For now, here are the meals I ate, most prep details can be found in previous posts. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask in the comments or email.

This was a busy day of errands that lasted longer than I thought they would, so breakfast and lunch were all snacks. For dinner I loaded up on protein, and I’m sure I was worn out from running around most of the day so I reheated leftover chicken and made quick egg whites on the stove.
Breakfast: banana, apple
Lunch: Larabar, almond butter
Dinner: Chicken, egg whites
In addition to the foods I had that are listed, I ate a whole bunch of plantain chips and a ton of cashew butter. I can’t say for sure which of the two upset my stomach, but I ended up sick later that night and I haven’t been able to look at plantain chips the same ever since.
Breakfast: egg whites
Dinner: Pork sirloin, sliced potatoes, broccoli+carrots
