The Next 30 Days: Whole30

This is it. I’m committing in writing.

For the next 30 days starting tomorrow, I’m going to be eating a lot of meat, and rabbit food.

Okay, maybe not exactly rabbit food, but lots of vegetables.

I’ll be doing the Whole30 challenge. To sum it up, I won’t be eating sugar, dairy, grains, or legumes.

Why?

I want to see what it does for my energy levels and performance. My body might not react well to dairy. I wouldn’t know that because I love ice cream and cheese but now is my chance to find out. I do know that sugar makes me moody and unproductive, but have too much of a sweet tooth to do much about it. The next 30 days will change that.

I’m excited to change my perspective on food and go back to the basics.

My refrigerator is full of vegetables that I don’t normally eat a lot of and meat to combine them with.

Since planning is essential to making this big of a change, here’s the gist of what I’m thinking for this next month.

Breakfast/Lunch

I’m not too huge of a breakfast person. The days that I don’t have to be at work early, I won’t eat until lunch time.

The days that I do work early, I normally stick a frozen burrito in the microwave for a quick and convenient breakfast because I know I’ll be hungry later if I don’t.

Instead, I will be replacing the burrito with a small salad with meat and plenty of vegetables. This might be difficult because I’m basically a blob without a brain in the mornings, but I’ve planned out portions to make it easier.

This will be the same for lunch.

Snack

When I get hungry midday at work, I usually rely on a Cliff bar. A mixture of cashews and almonds will replace this.

Dinner

This will vary, but will mostly consist of various meats cooked with vegetables. Salads will become more of a commodity as well.
