Whole30 day 3, briefly

I was planning to write a post about my Whole30 lunches, but someone from my running group just asked me to go walking with her in the morning. This means an early bedtime and an even earlier wakeup call for me. I’ll regale you with tales of my array of midday lunch choices tomorrow!

Today’s meals:
Breakfast – Scrambled eggs with diced vegetables and chicken apple sausage
Snack #1 – Mixed nuts (almonds, cashews, pecans, and pistachios)
Lunch – Shredded garlic chicken, roasted broccoli, and leftover peas and corn
Snack #2 – Banana with almond butter (before going running)
Dinner – Tomato soup with Italian sausage

Today’s notes: Yep, more Whole30 cheats. Get used to it. This morning when I grabbed my lunch out of the fridge and saw that it included chicken I thought I had a 100% Whole30 compliant meal for a change. But then I saw that I’d rounded it out with the some leftover peas and corn. I still consider it healthy even though it broke a couple of rules! Also, I have to admit that the homemade tomato soup (technically a bisque, but I omitted the half-and-half) I had for dinner has a little bit of flour in it for thickening purposes. If I’d had almond flour when I was cooking this weekend I would have used that instead, but no such luck. However, the homemade Italian sausage I made was perfectly within the Whole30 guidelines, and it was delicious! I’ll be using that recipe again soon.

P.S. After three days of Whole30 that banana with almond better tasted like the best thing I’d ever eaten.
