What I Ate on Whole30 – Week 2


This post contains affiliate links. View my full disclosure policy for more information.

I’m two weeks in to Whole30 and I am going strong! Overall, I’m feeling great and still motivated to kick butt at this. I’m still documenting all of my meals, and of course I have to post them. If you missed, last week’s post, I encourage you to check it out!

Thoughts from the week:

  • I still feel very focused on it, and I am not struggling at all as a whole. Yes, there are days where I want carbs and sweets. Most of the time I’ll eat fruit or a few nuts or something.
  • This week, I tried to add in more vegetables and I think I did a decent job. I’ve said it before, but Greg and I aren’t huge meat eaters, so this has probably the biggest adjustment.
  • I’m not sick of eggs. I actually ate eggs and egg whites all the time before Whole30.
  • I’ve used my food processor more in the last two weeks than I did in the last year.
  • I made some Whole30 mayo and it turned out great! Granted, we don’t really eat a lot of mayo. I made it for a potato salad, and I loved it.
  • I’m not hungry and I’ve stopped thinking about food.
  • This way of eating is becoming more natural and automatic to me.

Now, let’s get into what I ate the past seven days. Exciting times, people! And, of course, you get bad cell phone quality photos. I do not have time to whip out the DSLR and set up perfect lighting for these pics (even though I do love a well-lit photo… hahaha), so this is what you get.

    You’re becoming a full fledged carnivore!

      I know, this is crazy! That’s been the biggest adjustment for me. I’ve been realizing that I was eating a LOT of beans and quinoa. Not that those things are bad, but maybe I needed to switch things up.

    Honestly Whole 30 makes the most sense to me because it’s so “easy” to know what to eat… basically nothing! Ha, I kid… I kid. I am back on Whole 30 again and LOVE the paleo mayo I found on Amazon instead of making my own. I could probably eat the entire jar. I also searched whole 30 in food on Amazon and found a set of these dressings that is really helping me. Balsamic, ketchup, etc. All whole 30 approved!!

    I feel you on the meat… it’s the part I struggle with too. I feel like I’m eating two dinners a day sometimes. I actually thought about finding another way to get my protein in via the vegetarian whole 30, but they caution that it isn’t the same as a whole 30… but an adaptation.

    My goal for next week is less sweet and regular potatoes.

    I wish I saw this buffalo chicken soup recipe before I just froze all of the bone broth I made yesterday in 1 cup and ice cube quantities!

      Yeah, I looked at the vegetarian whole30. It sounds interesting but definitely not the same. I think after we’re done, we will probably add back in beans and quinoa as a protein source to break up the meat, but I really love the fresh, good food we’re eating! Def try that soup if you get a chance!!
