Whole30, round three: what I ate in week two

This week, week two, Phil tried to break me by dangling a pizza flyer in my face and saying I could have a night off cooking. I won’t lie, I nearly faltered – but then I slapped that flyer down and told him to bin it. It felt goooooooooooood.

I was feeling good at the end of week one, no sugar hangovers and no drastic changes in weight. But I find it takes 2-3 weeks to really see the results.

If you missed week one, it’s over here.

Week two eats are below – I’ll admit, I ate some meals again, from week one. Because I LOVE THEM. I also tried out some brand new recipes! It’s cold, so we are eating lean roast meat quite a lot – it’s super packed with flavour and if you only add a small dollop of coconut oil to the roasting pan, it’s not greasy or fatty. Just be careful not to pick the fatty cuts of meat (ie. pork with crackling, drool.).

Day eight: Monday

Breakfast: Two boiled eggs and spinach, plus a black coffee. (I was running late, thanks Pret!)

Lunch: Out to lunch with the girls: grilled lamb with roasted aubergine and peppers.

Dinner: My creamy chicken and mushroom soup with no added naughty bits.


Day nine: Tuesday

Breakfast: Smoked salmon, boiled egg, baby spinach, 1/2 an avocado and a spritz of lime. Black coffee.

Lunch: Chicken salad with rocket, aubergine, cucumber, red onion, mushrooms and tahini.
