Now that I’ve muscled past the blahs and tiredness of Days 2-5, round number three of Whole30 is looking up. It is SO much easier when I’m not having to cook non-Whole30 dinners for my husband. The funniest part has been realizing that aside from dairy and the occaisional sandwich, my 4 year old’s diet is already pretty on the money- his favorite snacks are fruits and veggies, he loves salad, and he can always be counted on to the protein in a meal.

For week 2, I’m adding back more of my workout- I just didn’t have the energy in week 1- so I’ve included more sweet potato, mostly at lunch which I eat shortly before going to the gym.

 Whole30 Grocery shopping

Curious what it costs to eat like this? Including all of my produce for the work, all of my protein except the steak (which I have in my freezer), some odds and ends for my son’s lunches, some spices I finished (about $12 worth) and a couple household items, I spent just under $100. I generally grocery shop once a week with some carry over on my staples- salad makings, sweet potatoes, frozen vegetables and coconut/almond milk. Typically, I spend between 75 and 85 on just food (not counting household items) for my son and I (my husband is off being Army strong at the moment). When I’m not doing a whole30, I spend about $60 a week, sometimes less if I’ve gone to Sam’s Club or Costco for my produce.
