I had a great time at the Chili, Chocolate, and Homebrew thing at UUCDC on Saturday for Daniel’s birthday. I definitely broke my Whole30, though. To be completely truthful, I was bad most of the week leading up to Saturday. I knew I was going to cheat on Saturday, and that made my motivation to stay on track go out the window.
I know what the guilt of cheating feels like now, so I hope I do better this time around. I have identified more of my issues… I have a hard time staying on track when having a meal out. I also have problems with lunch. I don’t usually have a lot of time to cook something (Grayson is teething and starting his 6th developmental leap… life hasn’t been easy lately). I’m hoping that doing a bunch of prep at the beginning of the week, so I can just reheat it, will help.
If I happen to be out and about with you during meal time, please don’t let me cheat. Ha. I need to be held accountable and reminded to stay on track, apparently.
Breakfast: Eggs with shredded sweet potatoes, salsa chicken, and spinach
Lunch: Leftovers or chicken breast with steamed vegetables
Snacks: Blood oranges, bananas, a small amount of nuts, freeze dried fruit
- Meatloaf with Green Beans
- Egg Roll in a Bowl
- Lemon-Garlic Chicken, Green Beans, and Potatoes
- Italian Crock Pot Chicken Soup (With Spinach and Carrots Added)
- Squash and Turkey Chili (based on my Butternut Squash and Black Bean Chili Recipe)
- Italian Seasoned Pork, Potatoes and Green Beans (with substitutes to make it compliant)
- Superbowl! Wings, Veggies with Compliant Dip, Fruit

Maybe I’ll post something not Whole30 related this week. I’m seriously getting sick of hearing myself talk about it. I can only imagine what you all are thinking.
So… tell me… what are you having for dinner this week?
