Through the Paleo diet/lifestyle and the Whole30 my family, friends and I are becoming healthier! We are getting to our healthy weights, moving more, sleeping better and have better energy. We are suffering fewer mild medical issues and are just overall feeling better every day!

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen these days. We cook and enjoy a lot of great food that's both tasty and healthy. I hope you'll find some recipes here that you'll enjoy!

Whole30 Journal ~ Days 1-4

So, here it is!  My Food/Mood Log for the first 4 days of my first Whole30!  

Day 1~Monday, July 9

Wake up at 5am.  Feel pretty good for only 6 hours of sleep :)
1 cup coffee with full fat coconut milk, 1/2C. peppermint tea, glass of lemon/lime water

8am - 3 sm. HB eggs, Chai Tea over ice, Cauliflower & bell pepper with ranch dressing, 2 bite-size pcs of canteloupe
9:15 (still hungry!) - half of keylime pie larabar
11:20 - other half of larabar (on my way out to run errands!)
12:30 - Crockpot chicken with veggies (celery, carrots, onions).  Cauliflower & peppers w/ranch dressing
5:40 - Pecan Pie Larabar
7:30 - Beef Roast w/veggies (celery, carrots, onions, tomatoes) & Salad
Dinner.  The beef & veggies were bland.  The salads were great!
Was in bed before 9:00, but was on the phone for a while and then tossed and turned until after 10:00.  Woke up several times during the night.

Obviously, I need to work on making my meals last longer so that I am not eating so often!

Day 2~Tuesday, July 10
Up at 5:00am after a very restless night.  Did 40 minutes of Kickboxing.

6:15 - Sausage/egg scramble, steamed broccoli & cauliflower, coffee with full fat coconut milk, glass of peppermint iced tea

It's 8:54.  I'm hungry.  This too shall pass... Take another drink of your lemon water.

Wheew!  Made it until after noon without starving!

12:20 - Crockpot chicken with veggies (celery, carrots, onions).  Cauliflower & peppers w/ranch dressing.  Banana Bread Larabar
2:30 - Chai Tea (iced)
6:00 - 20 minute walk with a friend
7:00 - Turkey Burger with creamed cucumbers and tomato slices
9:00 - sleepytime tea
Felt hungry most of the day, but not unbearable.  Had a sugar craving after dinner, it passed quickly.

Day 3~Wednesday, July 11
Woke up at 5am.  Still a restless night, but not as bad as the night before!  Did a 25 minute cross-training workout.

6:30 - egg/sausage scramble & fried eggplant, energy green tea, coffee w/coconut milk
11:00 - feeling hungry, but it's too early for lunch.  Having a hot cup of Tazo Awake Black Tea instead
12:40 - Turkey Burger with creamed cucumbers and tomato slices, 1/2 banana bread Larabar (YUCK!)
7:15 - Baked Chicken Breast w/sauteed cabbage & spaghetti squash w/clarified butter, s&p, garlic powder

Day 4 ~Thursday, July 12
Woke up at 3:20 in a lot of pain (monthly cycle).  Fell back to sleep around 4:45.  Alarm went off at 6:00.  Hit snooze until 6:45.  Slowly made breakfast and then couldn't eat it :(

7:15- hot peppermint tea
7:40 - tried to eat spaghetti squash and eggs fried in clarified butter, but felt too nauseous :(
9:45 - finally eating breakfast :)
12:30 - Chicken breast meat w/mayo.  steamed broccoli, cauliflower & carrots, blueberries
