Whole30 Day 6

Day 6 started in the pool. After seeing my horrible swim form on video I decided to take one of my swim sessions this week and work on my technique. I think I made some improvements. I popped a few dried apricots before my swim and made Everyday Paleo's Southwestern Frittata after. This is one of my favorite breakfasts. If you haven't tried it, I highly suggest it. I also made a smoothie with green tea, coconut milk, frozen blueberries, spinach and a banana. I was a hungry girl!

Lunch was more leftovers! I had the rest of my leftover chicken stir fry from Sunday and a salad. My afternoon snack was a sliced bell pepper with half an avocado and some salsa. Seriously, aliens have taken over my body. I ate a pepper as a snack!

I went for a run after work so I had a quick Lara Bar before my run and snacked on a few celery and carrot sticks afterwards to hold me over until dinner. Dinner was worth the wait! We ate some of the beef roast and roasted sweet potatoes that I cooked on Sunday. We topped the meat with salsa verde and Kevin made some garlicky asparagus and leeks on the side. I was still stuffed when we went to bed.


I have been doing this Whole30 thing for almost a week and the biggest thing I have noticed is that I don't seem to have any digestion problems at all. I never get that too-full feeling or get a belly ache after a meal. Not a huge surprise since I have pretty much removed anything that isn't natural or very minimally processed from my diet.

If you have ever done a Whole30, what was the biggest difference you noticed?

  1. Anytime I have completed a whole30 or even a 21DSD I notice the exact same thing. I feel good, then I eat and I feel the same. If some junk starts sneaking in then I start to feel bloated and heavy anytime I eat.

    1. Yep! I don't know why it is still hard to say "no" to foods that we know will make us feel bad, but it is. I would eat almond butter by the spoonful all day everyday if I could. :)
