We had decided a while back that I'd start off my Whole30 first, and my husband would join in once he was off work for March Break. Both of us had heard some horror stories about the "low-carb flu" and other generally sluggishness associated with this type of eating, and we didn't think it would be fair to the kids if we were both detoxing at the same time. Surprisingly, my transition was incredibly easy. Day 2 was a little head-ache-y, but then again, it may have been the horrendously interrupted sleep from the night before. In any case, today was hubby's Day 1, and so far he's just really enjoying the food!
Since re-introduction of the eliminated foods is something we're taking pretty seriously, we've decided we'll create a schedule. Or, rather, a priority list of which things we want to attempt first. We'll work together and create a list we can agree on, so that means that for the sake of simplicity, I'll likely extend eating this way by another nine days so we can finish - and reintroduce - together. (I'll still do a "wrap-up" with measurements at the day 31-mark, though.)
Breakfast - Eggs scrambled with taco-seasoned ground beef, onions and salsa. The obligatory 2 cups of coffee with coconut milk.
Lunch - More taco meat, this time in lettuce wraps topped with sliced tomatoes and guacamole.
Supper - Whole30-compliant Italian sausages [*insert happy dance here*] with onions and three colours of sweet peppers sauteed in coconut oil and crushed garlic.
Snacks - A banana, an "energy bite" - a BIG one - and a cup of leftover curried sweet potato soup from last night.
