Whole 30 – Week 1 Food Diary

As of Feb 15th, I started my first Whole 30 round, so here’s my week 1 food diary. I was originally gonna start on the 14th, and did eat clean but didn’t log it. So let’s go with the 15th.

I logged everything in Cronometer, an awesome Paleo (and keto) friendly food diary site. They didn’t pay me to say that, i’m just a happy customer! You can set custom macros or choose from several presets – I have mine set on Paleo right now.

So, even though I usually eat a fair bit of veggies, I was definitely eating more on this plan. TMI: So gassy, XD. Probably from the increased fibre! I did feel a little weak, but this is more due to my own health issues that I need to be careful of.

Day 1.

I miss cheese already! I tend to snack on it, and i’m already annoyed at myself for the deprivation 😛 But I’ll get over it.  We went out for grocery shopping and to a local restaurant called Cactus Club.

Breakfast: Eggs. Fried, with lamb Merguez sausage.eggs and lamb merguez

Lunch: I skipped lunch. Bad Strangekitty! To be fair, I was busy and not hungry until later.

Dinner: Beef carpaccio.  Pineapple braised beef short ribs with potatoes and snap peas.

Snacks: Almond milk, a banana and some red globe grapes.
