Cheater! I’m a Whole30 cheater! Yep, this weekend’s Whole30 food journal reveals a couple of off-plan indulgences.
Am I frustrated with myself? Nope.
Am I quitting? Nope.
In fact, since I already completed a successful Whole30, I might embark on a revised version of the plan this time: the HalfAssed30? Or maybe it’ll be alternating WholeWeeks and HelluvaWeekends. Whatever I call it, my plan involves sticking to the Whole30 way of eating most of the time. But I’m not going to stress out about the very occasional errant sauce or glass of red wine. In that sense, perhaps what I’m really doing is WholeLife.
Saturday Whole30 Breakfast: Black coffee, chicken sausage and a green smoothie (unsweetened coconut milk, kale and a few chunks of strawberries and bananas).
Saturday Whole30 Lunch: Canned Alaskan salmon with a little mayo and an apple with sunflower seed butter.
Saturday Whole30 Dinner Out: Burger (no bun) and a salad with iceberg lettuce and tomato. (Options were very limited at the restaurant.)
Saturday Whole30 Diversion: Two glasses of cabernet while out with friends. (Yay!)
Sunday Whole30 Breakfast: Black coffee, scrambled eggs and strawberries and pineapple.
Sunday Whole30 Lunch: Grilled kebabs with chicken, green peppers, red peppers, onions and pineapple.
Sunday Whole30 Dinner/Diversion: As a Mother’s Day treat, my hubby picked up take-out from Brasa. The restaurant offers fabulous gluten-free and low-carb dishes. I enjoyed smoked chicken wings, apple and cabbage slaw and roasted Brussels sprouts. My guess is that this meal probably wasn’t Whole30 compliant, but it was delicious and healthy, too.
Looking forward to the rest of my Whole30… HalfAssed30… WholeWeek… WholeLife.
