Weekly Meal Plan – Week 3 of Whole 30/21 DSD

Dec 9, 2012 by

As I write this, we’ve made it through two full weeks of the Whole 30/21 DSD. I finally turned a corner this week and felt pretty great most days. My moods are more even (read: there were less episodes of me telling Mike I hated his ass face), I’m sleeping great, and don’t get that late afternoon face-meets-wall thing around 2 pm like I used to. I have tons of energy and have been feeling great through my WODs, even the heavy breathers which I usually suck at.

This has been one of my favorite breakfasts  this week  as we were trying to polish off a smoked pork butt:

It was spinach, onions, and a little sweet potato sauteed with the pork. For Mike, I threw in some mushrooms too (the only food I still can’t eat) and put it in an omelet that he said kept him full till dinner!!

I have to say that even though I WOD almost daily, my appetite has been pretty low this week. I won’t even realize I hadn’t eaten much all day until I hit the OMG FEED ME NOW OR I WILL EAT YOUR YOUNG point. I’ve been trying to keep ahead of this but when you don’t have an appetite, it’s a little difficult.

I have to confess I did have a couple vodka and club sodas last night. I haven’t strayed off the food plan at all and it was only a couple of distilled liquor drinks (and normally I can DRAAANK) but this morning, I felt like this

My head hates me, my stomach hates me and all I want is pancakes (my go-to hangover food). I’m holding strong though and drinking lots of fresh brewed unsweetened tea and eating clean food to undo my assery.

Last night Mike and I made our meal plan and this morning we finished up the shopping for the week. Thankfully, we didn’t need much in the way of meat because I may or may not have cleared Target out of all of their Meyer’s natural meat.

So, we went to Sam’s and picked up our weekly boatload of veggies and now we’re ready for a full week of eating! My CrossFit box is hosting a large competition this coming weekend The Christmas Classic (you can compete if you’re somewhat local – cash prizes and still time to register!!).  Since I will be there running scoring and making sure things run smoothly with the volunteers, I will be gone most of the day Friday and all day Saturday. I factored this into the meal plan, knowing I’d have to pack almost all my meals and Mike would be on his own.

Today, we slow-roasted a pork butt in the oven for 5 hours and the smell is making me crazy.

Also, I figure I don’t need to write that our pre-WOD snack each day since it’s always the same: either a green apple or banana and some protein like almond butter, raw nuts, etc.


B: Prosciutto egg cups (I will be using spinach, onions, and mushrooms in ours and no cheese), 1/2 sweet potato
L: leftover pork butt, raw veggies
D: Farmer’s market meatloaf (skipping the BBQ sauce and pork rinds), garlic mashed parsnips (using almond milk instead of cream), roasted green beans


B: prosciutto egg cups, 1/2 sweet potato
L: leftover meatloaf and veggies
D: almond-crusted baked fish, oven-braised Brussels sprouts.


B: Garden omelet – lots of spinach, onions, celery, sausage
L: tuna salad on Romaine lettuce boats with tomatoes and pickes, raw veggies
D: bacon and caramelized onion stuffed chicken breasts, roasted broccoli and carrots, sweet potato


B: Hard-boiled (HB) eggs, bacon
L: leftover chicken,  spinach salad
D: Beef “Schtoup” – eliminating the potatoes


B: scrambled eggs, bacon, 1/2 sweet potato
L: egg salad on Romaine lettuce boats, raw veggies
D: leftover schtoup


At the competition. There will be fruit and water available to us, as well as a “Paleo plate” lunch provided for the volunteers. Also packing a lunch box of: almond butter, raw nuts,  unsweetened coconut flakes, beef jerky,  and coconut water (because I KNOW I’m going to be too busy to make sure I drink enough and this will help me stay hydrated).


Brunch: Detox-friendly pumpkin apple latkes (recipe coming tomorrow!)
Dinner: Chuck roast, roasted veggies.

What’s on your plate for this week?
