Welcome to a brand new year! This year I’m full of vigor and determination to reach my goals and that starts with proper fueling. I’ve derailed in a big way, ever since November I’ve pretty much had a “fuck it” attitude about everything. Life, working out, eats, drinking, you name it. UGH.
And naturally I feel like shit, look like shit, and have gained unnecessary weight.
So here I am focused on getting back what I lost and determined to get where I need to be. I did a Whole30 last year and loved it. Yeah there were a few frustrations but I’m past that. This year frustrations be gone! Let’s do this thing!
A change in work schedule means there’s no Daily Eats posting on Monday nights, so you’ll get a recap of two days on Tuesday. Coolio?
Up and at ’em! I had a banana before going to the gym, once home I heated up a slice of frittata. I made a BIG frittata for the week. When I say big, I mean, I use a 9×13 casserole dish to make the frittata. This one had:
- 1 Dozen Eggs
- 1 Medium Sized Onion
- Handful of baby peppers
- 1lb Bag of Frozen Collard Greens
- 1 Can of Coconut Milk
The seasonings were salt, pepper, coconut aminos, and garlic powder. I did sautee up the peppers, onions, and greens before adding that to the egg mixture. Baked in a greased dish at 400 for about half an hour. Breakfast for the week done!
Yes this makes a lot but I’m also cooking for two adults. However even if I was only cooking for one, I’d still make a huge batch like this. What doesn’t get eaten can be frozen for another time.
Lunch was a big salad that had my soul.
- Mixed greens
- Baby Tomatoes
- Chopped Beets
- Shredded Carrot
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Tuna Salad
The tuna salad was just homemade mayo + tuna and some Flavor God Lemon Garlic Seasoning. Then I headed in to work which sadly moved at a crawling pace. Apparently people don’t want to buy alcohol the day after New Year’s. Who would have thought?
My snacks at work were an apple and some pistachios.
Dinner I don’t have a picture of because it was just too ugly to post. There was no way to photograph it and make it look pretty without some serious styling and at 8pm at night I have zero desire to do that. Plus this section is about real life and not styled food. I had leftover pork country ribs with kraut and mashed potatoes. It was so good and perfect.
Then I hit the hay to read for a bit because I’m an old lady.
Woke up to snow and snow covered roads. MEH. I get cranky because it means I can’t hit the gym since my car doesn’t do well in the snow. Especially the wet heavy slippery stuff. So I made a huge pot of coffee and chilled.
Coffee with ghee + coconut oil + collagen this morning.
Since I had some extra time this morning I made us some roasted potatoes and scrambled eggs for breakfast.
The snow stopped and the roads cleared so I headed out to run some errands. I needed a few things from the store and since it’s supposed to snow more, I wanted to get these done. I won’t make it to the weekend with no eggs! Can you even do a Whole30 without eggs?
If you don’t eat eggs during your Whole30, did your Whole30 really exist? Deep thoughts.
Once home lunch was quick and hot.
Grassfed hotdogs from TJ’s and half a baked sweet potato. Not the most amazing lunch but I was cold (so so cold) and a salad did not seem appealing. I needed something hot!
Once lunch was finished I did some laundry and more around the house crap then it was time to get dinner started.
Cabbage roll soup!
Basically everything in cabbage rolls (minus the rice) in soup form. So good and perfect for this super cold evening. I made a large batch of it too so there will be plenty of leftovers.
Now it’s time to have some tea and chill with Scott for a bit before heading to bed.
