Janathon Day 5 meets Whole 30 Day 1


As the sun sets on day 1 of my Whole 30, I am very much in the realms of “well this isn’t so hard”.

I thought I would have been more organised for breakfast, but I am not the most speedy of people in the morning and didn’t get my groove on quickly enough – so an egg and juice it was!  I’ll try to be a bit more adventurous tomorrow (meanwhile – anyone who has completed the Whole 30 – what did you eat for breakfast?  I need inspiration!).

While breakfast was small, it did the job until about 11am.  Ordinarily I would be reaching for a biscuit or chocolate (or several) to tide me over to lunch.  Lunch was a bit more organised:



Tea was a beef stew with sweet potatoes.  The best! (Even if it doesn’t look it!)



The only thing is that I now want something sweet.  I’m not hungry, it is just a habit I need to break.

I decided that there was a choice for Janathon – yoga or kettlebells.  I could do either depending on how I felt at the end of the day (grumpy would have been kettlebells, everything else would be yoga).  Yoga won, which I was a bit surprised at given it was my first day back at work.

I enjoyed the Andrew Wrenn video, so that was my choice for this evening.

What is your favourite breakfast?  Mine would probably have to be eggs benedict.

  1. Your dinner looks yum! Oddly enough my favourite breakfast is toast (something fancy like sourdough), sliced thick with butter and jam. I normally have cereal so this is a treat!

  2. Peanut butter on anything as try not to have it!

  3. While I am only on day 5 of my Whole30 (and only want to hurt all the things.. not kill them.), I’ve been doing a lot of hard boiled eggs for breakfast. I have picked up Almond butter (since Peanuts are legumes and not allowed), and celery with Almond butter is in my future breakfast list.

    Left overs from dinner – Turkey breast was this mornings. In my reading somewhere, it mentioned to stop thinking of it as Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner – and instead think of it as Meal 1/Meal 2/Meal 3. That helps some with the idea of “really? That as breakfast?”

    I was however, reading up on”Whole30 for Athletes” – and found a template on the whole30 – http://whole30.com/downloads/whole30-meal-planning.pdf

    Apparently timing of the right types of food can really help with weight loss, and with energy levels!

    • I love almond butter! I am also a fan of hazelnut butter too – definitely worth trying if you haven’t already. I might switch up my breakfasts next week to apple and nut butter, though I think that on request, I’ll be making the sweet potato quiche thing again.

      I can’t get my head out of the ‘breakfast’ mode, though having sweet potato hasn’t been as bad as I thought.

      Thanks for the breakfast inspiration! 🙂

  4. Ooooooh your stew looks delish! For the first ever time I fell off the ‘Janathon’ bandwagon (came down with flu for the first time, teamed with a snazzy viral infection)…But great work teaming with with ‘Whole 30’. Clearly you are made of harder stuff than I..
    Going to enjoy a catch up on your post’s now..
    Oh..favourite breakfasts? Sex with your pant’s on pancakes or oats and some sort of delightful topping!

    • You still fighting the lurgy? I am sure that counts as Janathon activity! I do love pancakes with lemon and sugar.

      • First day I’ve managed to stay awake all day..I was knocked for 6.
        If there was Janathon for sleeping (and various other flu elements I won’t list) I could be in a chance of winning! 🙂
