Day 16 of Whole30 Eats

Pin It

Now that I’m back at work this week (and turning nocturnal again), I’ll report on what I’m eating from midnight to midnight. I’m finding it a lot easier adhering to the Whole30 program while away from my kitchen because I pack all my food in advance, and there’s no opportunity to stray. Each day this week, I’ll be eating just one meal at home after I wake up in the evening. (It’s my breakfast, but it’s dinner for the rest of the family).

Since it was my first night back at work, I didn’t get hungry until around 2:00 a.m. My ”lunch” at work was a refreshing salad packed with greens, hard-boiled egg, diced avocado, sliced tomatoes, and shredded carrots.

About an hour later, I was hungry again so I ate some coconut butter, macadamia nuts, and coconut flakes. Do you guys sense a pattern here? I love me some coconut and mac nuts!

My last meal at work was around 7:00 a.m., when I ate a box of leftover seasoned ground pork, roasted Portobello mushrooms,  and nuked frozen green beans.

When I got home, I walked my kindergartner to school with the rest of the family. I passed a bunch of moms who were bleary eyed and nursing huge mugs of java. WTF! I’ve been up all effing night — buck up, people!

I returned home, downed some chilled coconut milk, and crashed from 9:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. When I woke up, I baked a yummy and EASY platter of David Lebovitz’s roast chicken with carmelized shallots.

As veggie sides, I reheated some World’s Best Braised cabbage

…sautéed 2 bunches of swiss chard and shallots in some lard…


…and made some winter squash puree mixed with coconut oil, salt, and pepper.


Here’s my “breakfast” plate:


Now, it’s back to the grind for another 6 nights.
