Whole30 Day 7: Avocado Dressing

Whole30 Meal Plan: Day 7

Big Salad and Avocado dressing

7 Days, 7 Feels

It’s been a week of Whole30! To celebrate, I thought I would share the first 7 feelings that come to mind about the last 7 days. 

1 • My digestion is all out of wack. I won’t get into details, but something is not happy in my tummy since I started. And I am super bloated! Me right now = 🐋

2 • I have laser focus, and there is no more need for an afternoon pick me up or coffee. (I am down to one cup a day.)

3 • Working out has been all over the place. I haven’t been able to finish typical sets and have needed to drop weight. It’s almost like my body depended on sugar to get me through a hard workout. I have ordered some beef jerky for a pre-workout snack, and I think I need to eat more carbs.

4 • Everything looks brighter and clear. I feel like I put on HD glasses.

5 • Falling asleep has been a challenge, but getting up in the morning is easier.

6 • My hair looks fabulous! It feels so thick!

7 • Meals are more evenly spaced out throughout the day. Now that I am eating the same amount of food at each meal, there is about the same amount of time between them. Normally lunch would be about 3 hours after breakfast; we would have a snack and have dinner 7 hours after lunch. Now each meal is about 4 or 5 hours apart.

Big Salad & Avocado Dressing

One of my favourite meals we’ve been making thus far is a big salad with avocado dressing. A big salad is pretty much just made up of leftovers and any veggies we have in the house. The one rule in building a big salad is it must contain at least one protein. Normally it’s a variation of a Niçoise salad (tuna and egg), but since we have a lot of mix matched protein leftovers, we have been using those.

We like to use an avocado dressing; this ensures we are eating enough healthy fats… I am still afraid of fat! Insane how ingrained we are to fear fat! The avocado dressing is also very versatile and has acted as a fab sauce with salmon patties!
