I woke up exhausted. I stayed up late preparing food and making sure everything was ready to go.
I wrote notes so the boyfriend would remember to get the lunchbox I prepared for him and take it to work.
I left for work with my cup of black coffee, and I was determined we would both have a good day.
Breakfast: Two hard boiled eggs and a mix of raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. Plus another cup of black coffee.
Lunch: Salad loaded with veggies and sautéed chicken and a banana.
Dinner: Grilled salmon with a lemon dill sauce with roasted broccoli and sweet potatoes.
Snacks: Sugar snap peas, cashews and pistachios.
My day was pretty normal. I did notice I craved something sweet right after I finished lunch. So the banana was a must.
Black coffee hasn’t killed me yet.
And the lemon dill sauce I made for the salmon was amazing.
While I’m excited about the challenge of cooking for Whole30, I’m nervous I won’t be able to make food as good as I could before. Let me be clear. I’m basically just sad I can’t put cheese in everything.
Tomorrow the boyfriend and I are having different lunches. I decided to experiment on myself, instead of him. He did get a mid-morning headache from not drinking a coke.
So the sugar detox is on the horizon.
The thing I was most surprised about Day One was the curiosity of people. So much support and pep talks.
Every day we are on step closer to my food philosophy. Let’s continue to talk and share and build a community around food.
