Whole 30 Round 3

With 68 days to go until wedding date, and 2 days late, I have started my THIRD Whole30.  You know, the eating and life plan that sounds INSANE at first, but then when you do it, you can’t stop talking about how amazing you feel, how much better you look, and just HOW GREAT IT IS! 

 Here are the rules: Whole30 Program
I also created a blog post on my favorite Whole30 things a while back (it’s ugly and I’m sorry): RESOURCES

SO…January 3, Day 1….

I am following the 7 Day Meal Plan from the Whole30 Cookbook for the first 7 days, so today was a day of simple eating, grocery shopping, and meal prep.   I LOVE my Whole30 Cookbook!! 

 I made a protein salad, tomato sauce, and ranch dressing.  I’m actually going to live on the wild side and make my frittata in the morning, because that is just how I roll. 

 For breakfast I had a fried egg, some sauteed summer squash, and pomegranate seeds. It was wonderfully simple. 

 For lunch, I had Nick’s Sticks and an Orange.  Nick’s Sticks are an Iowa local treat. I  love the spicy flavors of the jerky and the simple ingredient list!

For dinner – it was a late, rushed one – I had two Aidell’s Chicken Apple Sausages, and another orange.  I like oranges.  I probably need more greens.  Oh well.  Day 2 is tomorrow.

One thing I’m super excited about?  

  The fact that I didn’t have any Thyme, and was able to use 1 drop of Thyme Essential Oil in my pasta sauce.   I did the same thing and added a drop of Dill to my Ranch Dressing!  Want to learn more about essential oils?  Go here: What the Heck are Essential Oils?
