Whole 30 Challenge: Week 1


Whole 30 Series- a Busy Woman's Guide

WEEK 1
Here is a review of what I essentially ate the first week on the the Whole 30 meal plan. Be sure to check out the official website. If you can recall on my previous post, I started on the challenge without the recommended 'prep' that the site recommends and I was fine for a few days until I had time to go 'organic' shopping....so if you're thinking about trying this challenge, you can decide right now and use common groceries found right there at home!

Then in between a few of the days I wrote what I experienced physically during that day and some detail. Do not know if those experiences had something to do with being on the Whole 30 meal plan, and if they were side effects or if I just happened to be experiencing those symptoms. 

Here are a few of the check lists you can download from their website in PDF form, it came in handy when I was doing an inventory of the pantry, shopping, and during meal prep.

A lot of my cooking this week was leftovers, I also ended up grilling a fairly large amount of meat for me and the family so that all I had to do was re-heat on stove or in microwave. I was really looking forward to the sweet potatoes and I think I ate them everyday. I also really enjoyed the organic dates, really flavorful and sweet but I didn't over indulge in the dates. I really have a new outlook on dates, I already used sweet potatoes regularly so that was an easy transition. I am now absolutely shocked on what I find in regular packaged, processed, non-organic foods....I knew it was 'good' for me but I didn't realize actually how disgusting processed food really is. I am happy so far that I tried this meal plan and I am looking forward to the next few weeks of my experiment with the Whole 30 Challenge!!
