I started the Whole30 routine on January 1, 2016…so far it hasn’t been too bad. Aside from a cold I’ve been battling (has nothing to do with Whole30 or what I’m eating, I just got sick), I’ve been eating good and haven’t been too hungry. However, I do miss a few things like:

-my lattes with milk / brewed coffee with creamer…it’s been tough to adjust to how my coffee tastes now, but i’m getting used to it. i’ve been substituting coconut milk as my ‘creamer’.
-i do like an occasional starbucks banana bread or cake pop to satisfy my sugar craving. not having any treats or sugars like that is a tad difficult.
-no rice, no beans, no bread, no tortillas?! what!? i’m mexican, i love that shit, lol. although not having that has made me more creative in the kitchen, which has been fun.

Today, I prepped my first lunch…really simple: a couple of hard boiled eggs, half an apple, and some grapes. I also brought along a banana as a snack as well.

Here’s a few pics of the previous meals I’ve made:

Marinated some chicken for a few hours in a vinaigrette I made (apple cider vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, italian herbs, mandarin orange juice, and lemon juice), tossed it all in a pan/wok and cooked till near done, then finally added some yellow squash and brussel sprouts.
