So we made it through the first 6 days, I was very sick, so surprise, the meal plan didn’t go as planned. Ryan cooked a couple days and went off plan but stayed Whole30 compliant. But I am back to 100% healthwise so YAY!!!!! Even with my sickness we managed to eat very well, see pictures below.
After last weeks meal plan I received a comment asking why I had snacks on the plan. Technically snacking is a Whole30 no-no. I have 2 reasons for including snacks:
1. My husband has a very high metabolism and is a tall lean guy. During our last Whole30 he lost 17 pounds. In order for him to not waste away to nothing he needs to have snacks. He has tried to eat larger portions and he cant; so snacks it is. Heres a link on info for maintaining weight while doing Whole30.
2. I am very active and I have a “snack” after I work out. I WAS having a smoothie or a piece of fruit with nut butter but after doing some refreshing on the program, I found that this is a bad strategy. My post work out food should be different, no fruit. Instead I should be having a startchy vegetable and protein. So I have decided for the rest of this Whole30 (or 90 or 100 whichever I end up doing) I am going to try hard not to snack unless I am having the appropriate post work out meal. Here is a link to the meal template for the Whole30.
