Whole30 Week 5

We’ve made it to the final week of January Whole30! I’m both excited and nervous to enter the Food Freedom stage. Part of me is like YASSSS CHOCOLATE and the other part of me is like what if I go completely off the rails and shove all the food into my mouth on Thursday? I know my tastes have started to change, my husband mentioned pizza yesterday and I was like, no it doesn’t even sound good. I had to stop eating grapes the other night because they were too sweet, fruit really is nature’s candy, just a few and I was totally satisfied. Not going to lie, I have missed chocolate like crazy so it will be interesting to see how that tastes this week.

If you haven’t started reading Food Freedom Forever, I suggest you download a copy of it ASAP. It’s really helped me reflect on why I did this in the first place and given me better insight on how to approach food after the Whole30. I’ve already experienced several NSVs (non scale victories) but I’m definitely hoping to see some results on the scale as well. Click through after the photo for this weeks plan.

My favorite breakfast this week: a sweet potato topped with grainless granola, almond butter, coconut flakes, chia seeds and Coconut Cult. It woke up my sugar dragon, so proceed with caution on this one, but gave me the energy needed to power through a tough bike workout.

This Asian Chicken Chopped Salad from @tastythin is going to be on repeat for lunch.

Let me know if you have any questions about reintroduction, or need someone to hold you accountable from eating all the things on day 31. I’ve been so thankful to have my friend Jessica help get me through this last month! The recipes featured this month are good for after Whole30 as well, I know I’ll be incorporating a bunch of them into my regular rotation. They’re that good.
