Whole30 Day Three

Day Three was a breeze! I woke up a little late but managed my first meal prep of the program!

 

 

 

 

I love starting my day with a hearty breakfast. I’m still in awe that this is all Whole30 approved ingredients! I’m eating like a damn King!

Naturally, this breakfast was my #MealoftheDay or #MotD:

 

Today began with this beautiful meal: Two fried eggs topped with grilled onions and yellow peppers, homemade hash browns, and the almighty bacon. Oh, and my favorite coffee of all-time: Tim Horton’s, baby. God, I miss your stores.

And since I ate so late, I only had a small snack before heading out to drive for Lyft. I prepped a LOT of veggies for my drive, namely cucumbers and carrots today. I drank plenty of water per usual, but that always causes an issue while on the road. By the time I dropped off this lovely couple at an event downtown, the coffee and water had reached critical mass and I had to stop. I went to my old standby: McDonald’s.

You know it’s funny because I go to McDonald’s every time I need to pee because it was one of the few fast food places that don’t lock off their bathroom with codes. But I found that over time, I had begun to eat McDonald’s food more often. It was cheap and easy and I felt like shit every time. Of course, I failed to remember that this was one of the few McDonald’s that DID lock off their bathrooms… Shit.

After I relieved myself, I hopped in my car to make a phone call and I don’t know if it was McDonald’s or perfect timing, but I was hungry. I popped open a bag of sunflower seeds I had on standby but knew I had to head home to eat properly. I threw destination mode on and drove the fifteen miles. If I was going to do this right, then I would need a more satiating substitute.

A fellow Whole30 partner from The Comedy Button Facebook group (of which Brian Altano is a co-host) had mentioned making mini egg muffins with bacon, onions, and peppers. All I need is a muffin pan and I’m good to go. Truth be told, I thought I had one and that was part of my meal prep this morning. Alas, there was no such tin and I just threw the leftovers into the fridge.

When I got home, I made some more of that beautiful “sloppy joe” mix from Day One and used my remaining sweet potatoes. MMM HMM! Delicious. I topped it off with a glass of 100% cran-apple juice and went back to driving. And I thought I wouldn’t be getting enough to eat… Ha!

I’m already noticing my pseudo-hunger subsiding and my energy levels maintaining as I go throughout the day. I went to the gym before driving and I felt great! I try to go every day I don’t work on a TV set, but today was different. Maybe I slept better or maybe, just maybe, it was my newfound “Food Experiment.” Only time will tell.

I’m going to share some of these mouth-watering recipes with you all in tomorrow’s post. I finally got to that part of the book and boy oh boy, I cannot wait to make some money to buy the ingredients! Stay tuned for that!
