Whole30 Meal Log Days 1-10
Captain’s Log, Stardate July 1, 2015. Wait. The lack of sugar has me confused.
Whole30 food log, week 1, Start Date 7/01/15.
I know, I know. Food logs are boring. Thing is, they are super helpful when you run out of ideas. Plus, I googled and googled for no egg whole30 breakfast / paleo breakfast ideas. (Truman is allergic to eggs so I am trying to do this egg free. I did have eggs for breakfast one morning when he was napping.)
I didn’t take photos of everything, but I grabbed some. I’m posting them here and there on instagram (@babybabylemon) but it is not an all meal log by any means. My beverages have been coffee (with coconut milk), water (plain, sparkling, sometimes with lemon) and tea (various).
It’s taken me a little while to get portion size worked out so there have been some snacks, mostly raw veggies, almonds, almond butter or some plain chicken straight out of the fridge.

Lunch: poached chicken breast, cherry tomatoes, arugula, olive oil, vinegar

Weirdly the hardest thing was making a peanut butter and jelly rice cake for Spencer. It looked so good and I do have a habit of eating the extra peanut butter on the knife. Not this time.
The snacking got better by day 9. I mostly didn’t need one unless I worked out and then it was more of the sanctioned mini-meal. Upping breakfast was huge in stopping the snacking. The more I ate in the morning, the less hungry I was at 3 pm.
