Welp, day 2 of the Whole30 wasn’t as terrible as I thought it was going to be. I had the day off from work and fully enjoyed it.
I woke up at a reasonable hour (maybe 8:00) and still felt sort of sleepy like I normally do. I didn’t have a terrible headache or anything like the Whole30 timeline states. I headed downstairs and have been trying to follow the rule of eating within one hour of eating like the Whole30 book recommends, which has been hard for me because I’m usually not quite hungry at that time.
I started my day off with some spinach I cooked in avocado oil, 4 eggs and a banana with cashew butter on top. I also had coffee with coconut cream as well. Sorry, no picture!
For lunch I had my husband’s pre-made sloppy joe like beef on top of a salad with grapes, raisins, salsa, Wholly guac, and crushed up cashews. I sprinkled a little bit of olive oil on top just for some smoothness. The addition of the fruit and cashews made this way better than it being plain.
Dinner included two chicken apple sausages by Adele, smashed potatoes cooked in bacon grease, and some stirfry veggies. We had an event for my husband’s old job that evening and knew there probably wouldn’t be any complaint food, so I decided to eat before leaving.
Overall, day 2 was pretty easy…especially since I had the day off. I didn’t feel any weird symptoms like fatigue, lethargy, headaches, or dizziness. In fact, I felt like I had good enough energy that I actually took Goose for a run for two miles in the middle of the afternoon…which never happens!
