Whole30 Day 2
I slept really good last night, despite being woke up a couple times by the kids. I did grab a small handful of pistachios before bed, we ate at 5:00 last night so by the time I went to bed I was feeling a little hungry, even after drinking some water.
Breakfast- I made myself two scrambled eggs mixed with just a splash of coconut milk. Have you tried this yet? I'm not sure what to think, I really think it tastes similar to water. I added in some diced peppers and broccoli. I knew I'd want some fruit so I grabbed a small handful of grapes and two sliced strawberries for my plate. It was delish! I felt really full and satisfied.
Lunch- My stomach wasn't feeling the greatest after breakfast, it literally just hurt for awhile so I wasn't too hungry for lunch. I heated up a small amount of leftover fajita mixture from last night, sliced up one carrot and added some pineapple. I cut up a sweet potato for the kiddos today and baked it in the oven with some coconut oil, they tasted so good! I'm loving this coconut oil for sure.
I did start feeling a little hungry around 3 when I was getting all the kids a snack. I made them a green smoothie with almond milk, since I've never tried almond milk I wanted to see how it tasted. I had maybe 1/4 cup of the smoothie, it was so good and totally hit the spot. Technically I cheated by having a little snack but that's okay, at least it was something really healthy.
Dinner- We decided on taco salads tonight, the kids got to have regular tacos. I added some diced pepper, a little bit of tomato and diced avocado to mine. Oh and some fresh salsa too. I also had an orange but one particular little girl stole part of it.
I'm feeling really good today! I don't really feel deprived at all and I can't believe how easy this really is turning out to be. Yesterday I constantly thought about food, today not as much.
