Today is the day I start the Whole30 Program. Yes, it can seem restrictive to many people but I already basically eat this way except that I’ve been nipping at dark chocolate, nuts, and coconut flakes ALL THE TIME. Plus, I want to see what happens if I don’t eat dairy (except for occasional ghee) and processed meats (e.g. sausage, prosciutto, bacon, etc.) for 30 days. I’m sure I won’t be 100% compliant (see below) but I’m gonna do my best.
For breakfast, I fried up three scrambled eggs in macadamia nut oil and nuked up some leftover stovetop cabbage.
Yes, the cabbage was sautéed in ghee but since it was from grass fed cows, it should cause little intolerance. And ghee tastes good.
For lunch, we hit up our go-to brunch place, Rick’s Café. It’s a bit harder maneuvering the menu when you’re on the Whole30. I really like dairy and processed meats but they are verboten on Whole30 so I opted to order an Alfredo omelet (omelet filled with grilled chicken breast, onions, and mushrooms topped with Alfredo sauce) without the sauce and I subbed in a salad and fruit cup in place of potatoes and bagel.
I was a troublesome customer. This tasted okay – kind of dry and plain. Surprise, surprise. Plus, the salad came tossed with a sugar-filled dressing so I didn’t eat it. Fitbomb felt sorry for me and shared some of his Cobb Salad with me.
I ate some bacon and it tasted good.4
