Whole 30 | Food Log | Day 10, 11, 12, and 13
My cousin was in town this weekend, so it was a busy one. It was also very challenging to stay on the program. We had to eat out a lot, since my house and paleo food is only mildly entertaining. Plus, you know, you want people to see the best of what your town has to offer. There was the temptation of some of my favorite foods, as well as the devil liquor. I made it through fairly well. I have a hard time knowing if everything I eat when I eat out is totally legal. The whole30 has a “can I eat ___” forum that sometimes has folks contradicting one another. So, I just go by my guts. Anyway, here are photos of the last 12 or so meals…
I felt seriously ill after eating this meal. I am guessing it was the burger. It can be hard to eat out, for sure, on this eating strategy. I can only think to ask so many questions… like “is this hamburger cooked in garbage?” I mean, I like the place. Great ambiance. And I always have the hotdog, which I think is pretty good. I don’t know if I will ever be able to eat a hamburger here again though. I wonder if its from the change in eating, or if I’d have felt this way 11 days before it. Anywho, I had some guacamole a little later in the evening too. And that was day 10.
We spent lunch on a boat looking at manatees and monkeys. We even saw a couple dolphins. I had mostly snack food. Some guacamole, carrots, prosciutto, and turkey… also some pistachios. Also had a bit of SyFo sparking water. All natural and pretty tasty. I hope its compliant.
Breakfast was just some eggs and leftover steak. Not too bad. It was not photographed, however. I don’t know if the calories count if you don’t photograph it. Let’s assume so.
Lunch was Chipotle. This is a go to lunch, for sure. I am not always prepared for my days. This is a problem that I am resolving by eating Chipotle, or a chicken salad somewhere. I realize some places may cook with soy oil, or some other non compliant thing. I know they want us to be 100% on with this, but I am doing my best to be close. I am starting not to see this as a 30 day thing, but as a long haul thing. At least until I reach some goals for weight loss, and energy regulation.
Also, I am struggling to see the issue with beans. I know it’s the magical fruit, and the more you eat the more you toot, and I know they are an “anti-nutrient” and that they can cause inflammation. And god knows, I don’t really eat many of them. But I guess I may always think of them as something that is good for you that you should eat even if you don’t love them. Anyway. That’s another story.
So, there you have it!! Four days of me eating that you missed out on. It’s like a reality show marathon! I hope to be back in the swing and post today’s meals and even a tip or something… how is everyone else doing?
