When we got there Wednesday night my Aunt made chili so I had chili with avocado! YUMMY
Thursday for Thanksgiving lunch everything I had was totally Whole30 compliant.
I made roasted brussel sprouts with cranberries, squash and zucchini with sauteed onions, roasted pumpkin spice sweet potatoes, and broccoli and carrot salad with delicious baked turkey!
It was so good I didn't even miss the dressing or rolls. I did make a paleo pecan pie and it was SOOO good but so dangerous. The paleo pecan pie made me realize I can't do paleo treats because I ate too much of it. Even natural sugar is gonna be my downfall - paleo isn't calorie free and it definitely made my tummy sad.
Friday I ate whole30 compliant but I had about 5 glasses of champagne! OOPS
So on Saturday I officially started ROUND 3! I am now back on 100% Whole30
ROUND3 Day 1
Banana with almond butter and scrambled eggs with salsa
For lunch I made a taco salad bar! YUMMY
Later I was a little snacky so I had more almond butter with an apple
For dinner I had salad with balsamic and dijon and spaghetti squash with venison pasta sauce
ROUND3 Day 2
Breakfast was leftover taco meat from my salad with fresh onion and jalapeno and salsa in scrambled eggs
For lunch I had leftover turkey, squash, and sweet potatoes
For Dinner I made an AMAZING lamb shepherds pie
LAMB SHEPHERD PIE
1 lb. ground lamb
1 chopped onion
3 chopped carrots
1 TBS crushed garlic
Rosemary (to taste)
Tomato paste (small 6 oz can)
Put new potatoes on to boil
Sautee the lamb and veggies, add garlic and rosemary and salt and pepper
Add in full can of tomato paste and enough broth to make it like a sloppy joe consistency
Put in a pie pan
Mash potatoes with ghee, garlic, and rosemary, and salt and pepper then put on top of the lamb mixture and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.
IT IS SOOOOO GOOD!
After a sixty day period on Whole30 I have realized my body feels better and I feel better about myself when I am eating whole. I bought this shirt as a reminder that I am whole30!
Whole30 GODDESS MELISSA HARTWIG: "I don't want you to do the Whole30, or start eating healthier. I want you to BE whole30, to BE a healthy eater. The stronger you can self-identify in this way, the more likely you are to hold ot your new desired behaviors. Bonus tip: the sooner you can prove to yourself that this is really part of who you are, the better, so give yourself opportunities to have small wins. Go out to eat and BE whole30. Be faced with tempation at the office and BE whole30. This sends a FAR stronger message from you to you, and you may be surprised at the power of this daily affirmation.
So the next time you're trying to create a new habit or behavior, remember
1. Build this into your identity
2. Give yourself opportunities to prove that this is in fact, who you are
Try this with me for one weekm tell yourself, I AM WHOLE30, and then tell me did it strenthen your commitment to a healthier way of life?"
