Whole30 – Day 1

First days are hardly ever a problem I think. You’re full of resolve to ‘do’ this and any roadblock is just swept away… Our first day was no different…. 🙂 so what did we eat?

koriander1Breakfast:
Omelette with courgette, spinach and parsley

Lunch:
Smoked red peppers and tomato soup with chipotle for some extra kick

Dinner:
Chipotle meatballs with Brussels sprouts. The meatballs were served with a chipotle tomato sauce…

Tom is always more about ‘I’m HUNGRY’ when we’re on a whole30 and truth be told, our lunch was on the late side but I was fine and didn’t feel too empty after the eggs for breakfast which was good.

I’ve got to get a little more creative with breakfast though as I remember we didn’t really feel like eating any more eggs after almost a month of egg-breakfasts…

  1. I can’t wait to follow you doing this. Like I mentioned I might try it next month for my do something new blog hop. BUT the stuff you mentioned you ate some of it I’ve never even tried before. Guess I have to step outside of the comfort zone.

    • But you don’t have to eat the same things…:) I’m guessing you mean the chipotle peppers right? It’s a Mexican thing and I love them but they’re quite hard to find here. The good thing about the whole30 is that it’s flexible. As long as you stick to the rules you can eat just about anything. I would recommend you read maybe the book ‘it starts with food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig to begin with to get an idea… 🙂
