Since my last post- several weeks ago, Marcel and I have embarked on the Whole 30 adventure together. It’s my second time and his first. We started on the 15th, and while he wanted to give it up at around day four- he decided in the end to stick with it and he’s doing great now.
It has been a lot more time consuming this time. Mostly because with BOTH of us doing it- it means a LOT more meal prep time since he can’t take his usual sandwich to work. That means egg muffin cups for work- and omelettes for breakfast. It’s time consuming, but definitely worth it.
Plus this week we’ve had some really warm weather and that meant me spending a LOT of time in the kitchen yesterday meal prepping for salads for the rest of the week. The fridge is stuffed to the brim with various greens, bacon, turkey breast, roasted tomatoes, roasted zucchini and eggplant, grated carrots and beets, boiled eggs and the list goes ON.. It makes it so simple to toss together a salad of our choosing and it’s delicious!
I haven’t asked Marcel many questions on whether he feels like Whole 30 is changing how he feels, because I believe it’s too early to tell. I’ll give it a few more weeks, or maybe he’ll discover it on his own. I’m definitely having a little more energy than I was before, but still not at the tiger blood stage I got to at around week 2 before. I am waking up earlier in the morning and feeling more rested- but not sure if that’s from Whole 30 or the warm weather. Time will tell.
Have you tried the Whole 30 plan? What were your thoughts? I would love to hear your experience.
