The weekends are the hardest part of doing a Whole30. Our schedule is usually different, we’re hanging out with friends, I’m spent at the end of the week and just don’t feel like cooking much. It’s not hard to eat Whole30 compliant food, what’s hard is to not graze. Since our meals are pretty much eating leftovers or snack-y things, I want to pick at food all day. It is hard to make myself put a whole meal together and sit down and eat it.
I realize how deeply ingrained snacking is related to relaxing in my head. I just want to kick back and munch. I’m so used to the weekend being my splurge days. My normal routine was to eat well during the week and on the weekends treat myself.
I have not yet been able to keep myself from snacking on the weekends. Especially right now in the summer when all the fruit is so cheap and delicious. I just swing by the fridge for a handful of grapes or blueberries throughout the day. At least the food is still compliant. Even though I might be good at not snacking during the week, as next weekend is our last Whole30 weekend, I’m going to try really hard to not snack.
- Breakfast Pizza Quiche
- Handful of the Trader Joe’s Cruciferous Mix
- 1/2 and Avocado
- 1/2 an Apple
- Leftover Tuna Salad
- Celery Sticks with Ranch Dressing
- 1/2 an Apple with Almond Butter
- 2 Hard-Boiled Eggs
- Hamburger Patty
- Potato and Green Bean Salad – This is the 2nd time I’ve made this, it definitely tastes better if you dice the potato smaller. The dressing soaks in better.
- All-Day Breakfast Salad
- Grapes, Strawberries, and Pineapple
How We Felt:
Nothing much to report today. Just feeling snacky.
