Week 4 Day 2

One of those days where I just don’t really know what I want for breakfast so I have a weird combo of almonds and almond butter. Who knows why I do such things, but it’s just about getting fuel in. Lunch, a burger patty cooked in a pan with some pineapple and jalapenos pan fried and served on top. Dinner was Sam’s Choice compliant apple chicken sausage that I put on top of pan cooked peppers and onion and a microwave bag of riced cauliflower. There is a good chance I put mustard on top of all of it because that’s one of the most compliant condiments in Whole30.


Breakfast: Almonds, almond butter (ha!)

Lunch: burger, pineapple, jalapeno

Dinner: chicken sausage, green pepper, onion, cauliflower rice

Week 4 Day 3

Breakfast: Leftover chicken sausage, pasta sauce, cauliflower rice

Lunch: egg whites with turmeric, salsa, hemp hearts

Dinner: burger, carrot fries, sweet potato slices

Turmeric has a bunch of health benefits and tastes so good with the salsa+egg combo. Carrot fries are super simple to make, just slice them into chunky french fry sizes, coat with oil and seasonings, and bake at 400 degrees until soft. And guess what, the sweet potatoes are made the exact same way I just slice them into rounds…but you could still cut them into fries and cook the same!

Week 4 Day 4

Breakfast: egg whites with turmeric, salsa, hemp hearts

Lunch: apple, Larabar, almond butter, fruit

Dinner: egg whites, steak, fruit tray, cashews

Another long day of errands, so a weird day of food. I found a fruit tray on sale so my family and I enjoyed that while we were out and finished with dinner. I’ve figured out that if I go overboard on fruit I get a painful stomach ache with lots of bloat. It took me a very long time to figure out that’s what was causing some stomach aches, but I definitely learned a lot during this Whole30! More on stomach aches in my final thoughts.

Week 4 Day 5

Breakfast: egg whites, small piece of steak (leftover), roasted butternut squash

Lunch: banana, almonds, Rx bar

Dinner: yellow squash, beef, pasta sauce

I pretty much cook anything in the oven at 400 degrees and keep my eye on whatever it is, in this case butternut squash, until it’s the cooked how I want. Dinner is the same from Week 4 Day 1, and can be made in under a half an hour!

Week 4 Day 6

Breakfast: sweet potato bowl, apple

Lunch: snacks

Dinner: Pork roast, carrots, potatoes

I did this Whole30 in January when it’s snowy and cold and all I want to do is snuggle up under a blanket and/or eat all of the comfort foods. I put all of the dinner ingredients into a slow cooker along with seasonings and some compliant vegetable stock and let it cook all day long. You could find compliant barbecue sauce or use mustard on top when it’s all cooked and it tastes so good on a chilly evening.

Week 4 Day 7

Breakfast: apple, almond butter

Lunch: orange, Larabar

Dinner: eggs, steak, leftover squash

I ate a lot of snacks in the early part of the day, which happens a lot of mornings. Then dinner comes and I’m ready for a big meal, especially if it’s after a good workout. Eggs are an easy way to add more protein to a meal or just an easy way to just eat more food. If you can stay consistent with eating clean foods and getting in some exercise at least a couple days a week, you can get away with eating more at meals and still lose weight or be healthy or whatever your own fitness goal may be. You don’t have to starve to feel and look your best!

Day 29

Breakfast: egg whites

Lunch: almonds, banana, sweet potato fries

Dinner: burger, mixed veggies

I love frozen vegetables, best for when I’m feeling lazy and don’t feel like prepping any veggies for the oven. I can stick them in the microwave or I also put them in a skillet with oil and some good seasonings and heat that way. I had some leftover sweet potatoes fries from lunch so had more with dinner.


Day 30

Breakfast: egg whites, larabar

Lunch: sweet potato bowl

Dinner: chicken, mashed potatoes, broccoli

I made a similar meal for breakfast on Day 22 , minus the eggs, and I made different veggies. Switching up what veggies and what seasonings you use is the best way to avoid boredom. Yes, I ate a lot of the same foods during Whole30, but there are a lot of different ways to add flavor to food. Food shouldn’t be boring, especially clean foods that make you FEEL good.

So that completes my Whole30! Next comes the reintroduction phase, read my process and final thoughts here!
