I've just finished up my second day on the Whole 30 thing. I don't really know what to call this plan. It's very similar to a low-glycemic plan. It's Clean Eating. It's eating whole foods. It's Paleo, sort of, but not as restrictive as the diet described in a Paleo book I read awhile back. I'm doing my best to focus on what I can eat and not remind myself what I can't eat.
I am eating this:
Meat, eggs, fish
Healthy fats (nuts, coconut oil, olive oil, avocado)
That's pretty simple, right?
I'll tell you what helped me the first day. I had to take my daughter to soccer practice so I knew it would be a hassle to cook that night. I happened to have some leftover cooked roast (actually, it was a tri-tip but I'd cooked it in the CrockPot like a roast).
So I made soup. I filled my CrockPot half-full with frozen vegetables. I added the roast, a can of tomatoes, broth, some water, salt and pepper and let it cook all day. Easy and filling. And healthy!
I even had it for breakfast the next morning because I'm always pretty rushed at breakfast time.
Anyway, so far, so good, though my head is achey because I'm giving up Diet Coke again (because of the sweetener in it).
