Whole30: Week 4

Day 22

B: chicken hash, last of the roasted cauliflower, 1/2 pear

L: egg salad, 4 olives, 1 carrot, snow peas, a banana

S: coconut chocolate Rx bar

D: grilled chicken cashew salad (no dressing) from Culver’s*

Seems I feel a bit hungry all the time now, despite eating hearty meals.

*I am guessing my salad at Culver’s was not Whole30 compliant in some way. ( Cornstarch in the chicken and the cashews may have had peanut oil was all I could find that wasn’t compliant.)  For some this would mean the Whole30 was over or needed to be restarted.  Being an adult and having my own goals of not snacking and reducing junk food I am merely going to press on.  I actually consider this meal a win as I normally order a pork tenderloin sandwich or fried fish plate.  And I did not take even one teensy taste of my son’s ice cream.

Day 23

B: two fried eggs, 1/2 grapefruit, a banana

L: egg salad, rest of grilled asparagus, 1/2 pear  And I watched “Chesapeake Shores” while I ate. Ooh I am such a rebel eating and watching tv at the same time!  🙂

D: an apple and some cashews eaten before I went to my son’s school for Curriculum Night. (I had planned on eating leftover chicken hash after I got home but I just wasn’t hungry.  It is awfully hot and humid here these days.)


Finished the 1000 piece puzzle!

Day 24

B: last of the chicken hash, 1/2 grapefruit

L: chicken tenders, carrots, small baked potato w/ghee and a banana

D: roasted pork loin, pan roasted brussel sprouts and butternut squash, applesauce

The house smelled wonderful with the roasting meat and dinner was tasty and had an autumnal feel, but frankly it was a bit much for the triple digit heat.

Day 25

B: quiche and a banana

L: chicken tenders, leftover brussel sprouts and squash, applesauce

Finally the local PBS has the latest season of the “Great British Baking Show” on.  I watched the first episode this afternoon.  Yum!

D: apple and cashews

Day 26

Well, there is no day 26.  I officially ended my Whole30, er Whole25 this morning with a piece of toast (homemade bread from the freezer) and peanut butter (TJ’s no sugar added).  I accomplished my goals of no mindless snacking and reduced my sugar intake. I lost 4 1/2 lbs which was rather disappointing.  I felt like I ate so much less and certainly no junk food.  But I am back in my weight window so I did succeed with my goal.

Now the hard part begins…..
