2nd Whole30, Day 14-20

V8 and Coffee: Breakfast of procrastinators

These seven days were the possibly the most stressful of my life. I handed in four papers in seven days and wrote an exam. I got about 3 hours of sleep per night. I lived on coffee and whatever I could find (Whole30-compliant, of course), and ignored the dishes.

So, needless to say, I stopped putting any extra effort into anything that wasn’t absolutely necessary, including blogging about what I was eating. This post is an overview of the good, bad, and the ugly.

Breakfast

  • Good: Eggs and veggies, what else?!
  • Bad: Some eggs, not enough veggies.
  • Ugly: The morning after the last all-nighter, I didn’t feel like making eggs and didn’t want to take the time to chop vegetables. So I drank a V8, ate a couple of boiled eggs, and then ate some almonds later.

Lunch/Supper/Other Meals

  • Leftover pork sausage
  • Leftover avocado green cold soup
  • Raw veggies
  • Boiled eggs
  • Leftover Easter ham
  • “Chock-full-of-veggies spaghetti” with ground beef and zucchini instead of noodles
  • A salad at East Side Mario’s (without the goat cheese and dressing, without even the oil ’cause they only have a canola/olive oil mix: weird!) on a date with the BF on the evening of the day I handed in my last paper.

Snacks, etc.

  • Kale chips
  • Apples with cashew butter
  • Sweet potato chips
  • Parsnip chips (not my favourite)
  • A special I-handed-in-all-my-papers treat: some grapes
  • When the Easter chocolate temptation really started bugging me at 2 am, I made a substitute: banana chunks covered in a cocoa-coconut oil-cinnamon-vanilla mixture and sprinkled with crushed toasted coconut flakes, and frozen! Mmmm!

  1. so just from reading through your Whole30 posts – I gather your a student. Thanks for being so transparent with your posts. It’s nice to see you sticking to the Whole30, but being open about “survival mode.”

    • Yes, Becky, I am a student with one term left before getting my BA! I did two back-to-back Whole30s earlier this year, while being a full-time student. It was tough, but so beneficial!

What do you think? Please don't be shy...
