Days 3,4,and 5 of Whole30

Day 3:
2 eggs and wilted kale
3 tbsp pomegranate seeds

Coffee with coconut milk

Salad with cherry tomatoes and 1/2 avocado
6 meatballs
1 date
2 pieces of cod
1 sweet potato
1 1/2 cup mixed veg (yellow, green beans and carrots)

Feeling different today. More relaxed, less anxious. Was hungry at about 4:30pm and was considering ordering in a pizza... something I haven't done in a long long time. I remembered the It Starts with Food book explaining that the cravings are normal so I just ignored the feelings. One thing I have to work on is eating more slowly! I ate supper in 10 minutes... too fast.

Day 4:

2 eggs scramble with wilted kale and a few cherry tomatoes
1/2 can salmon on lettuce with avocado and few cherry tomatoes
Steak brochette on the grill with onion and red peppers
Spinach salad with mandarins and  walnuts with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dressing

Didn't feel too good today...allergies acting up (birch pollen is everywhere) and had some intestinal issues.

Day 5:

2 egg scrambles with mushroom, onion, a few cherry tomatoes
Handful natural almonds
Nori seaweed roll filled with salmon, avocado, cucumber and carrots
Chicken breast
Spinach salad
1/2 sweet potato cut into rounds and pan fried in 2 tbsp coconut oil
1 date rolled in chopped almonds

Feeling less bloated and achy in the mornings. Took a long walk outside--it's too beautiful out there to stay indoors. Felt awful afterwards because of allergies. No rain forecast until later on in the week to wash away the pollen. Will be high on Benedryl until then!
