Today is week 1, day 4 of my experiment with Whole30. We were prepared for the most part, but still underestimated the sheer volume of food we would need. Meal planing for breakfast and lunch has been going as planned for the most part for me, but the Hubs needs more food to function than I do. We’ve had two extra trips to the store to get enough snacks and meat to last the week. I may actually have to go to the store this weekend instead of using Instacart for groceries.

I have noticed I do like something sweet before bed, but I also like fruit so it hasn’t been too terrible. I have bought the cookbook so I can plan better for next week. I’m sure this will be harder over the weekend and probably early next week. Normally we like to have dinner out on the weekend and maybe hit a brewery one afternoon. We’ll have to get creative and busy with other things.
