- I had a digestive flare-up last week which turned out to by PMS-related. But during previous Whole30's I've found my burps got worse, eating more cooked vegetables and less raw helps me with that somewhat. You could do butternut squash or similar if you're tired of potatoes - I love delicata squash. Japanese sweet potatoes have a different flavor profile too.Orvell

- I'm honestly not sure why fiance is in this round with me. I think he may have realized that with me cooking W30 it wouldn't but much extra effort for him to join in. And I think it's partially to support me trying to make healthier choices. It's mostly been okay, though he was driving me CRAZY for the first week because he was weighing his food and tracking to make sure he got enough calories...I don't know how many ounces of ground beef are in your portion, because part of the point of this plan is not having to measure! It's also more pressure on me, feeling responsible for his W30 - but I feel that way about his diet in general as the person who shops and cooks. I do appreciate the ease factor of not having tempting non-compliant food in the house. It adds a little challenge because he's a pickier eater (mostly about vegetables), but meat is pretty safe.
I realized at some point that the Zinc and allergy meds I take are probably not compliant. Stopped taking them, but I'm not starting over. It would be tiny amounts of non-compliant stuff anyways.
Lucky for me, my coworkers eat lunch in the cafeteria (at least one other guy brings lunch from home) so I can socialize without struggling to be compliant. I do envy them their sweet potato fries though.WINS
I made a triple recipe of this chili over the weekend. Fiance happily ate it 6 meals in a row. http://www.farmsteadchic.com/paleo-whole30-chili/
I'm doing better with making sure there are ample leftovers so that I'm not *forced* to cook if I don't feel like it.
My energy is pretty good, and my skin is clearer :)Challenge
Eh, pretty much humming along right now. Trying to figure out the Spartan Sprint fueling plan. RXbar is good for pre-workout, but not mid-workout (feels like a rock in my stomach). Will try coconut water or Larabars.
My grocery bill was $$$ again, I stocked up on RXbars and Larabars in preparation for our training/race.Meal Hack
It's not exactly frugal, but one of my go-to meals is...
Protein: grass fed hot dogs or roast beef (Applegate brand, can find at Target...hot dogs are at TJ's also)
Vegetable: Steamfresh broccoli or green beans with ghee and salt
