This is week 2 of my Whole30 Experience in March 2018 for getting rid of symptoms of an autoimmune Hashimoto's flare-up. I share what I eat in a day on Whole30, the exercise I do, and any other lifestyle components I have added in, plus I include some tips to make Whole30 easier. Links to most of the recipes I made during the week are below.

We are now onto week 2 of this March Whole30. It's been interesting for me, as this is my 5th or 6th (I can't even remember now) Whole30, and it's almost been harder this time than others because I know how GOOD I can feel but I'm not there yet.

I'm getting impatient.

However, certain symptoms are starting to go away, like my acne hasn't reappeared, so I know I'm on the right track. BUT, it's been kind of a big wakeup call to me that even though I've been eating a gluten-free diet, gluten-free isn't enough for me. I obviously need to really stick to more of a Paleo template in the future or else I'll dig myself into a deep hole like this.

And deep holes are no bueno.

What I Eat in A Day on Whole30 Week 2

The following are the vlogs (videos) that show each day – what I eat in a day, how I feel, exercise I did, and anything else I feel important to share (like some tips).

Whole30 Days 8 & 9

This vlog shows what I eat in a day on Whole30 and I share my exercise and symptoms for Whole30 days 6 and 7.

I also give a tip for making your veggies exciting: use Vegan cookbooks. Out of necessity, Vegans have learned to make veggies in all sorts of creative and delicious ways, so if you're trying to get more veggies in your life, I highly recommend you look at some Vegan cookbooks and websites.

Sure, there are ingredients in a lot of the recipes that are not Whole30 or Paleo-compliant, but most of the times they are there to bulk up the dish and you can simply remove them. For example, in the Butternut Squash with Sundried Tomatoes and Arugula dish I have for dinner on Day 8 (link to recipe below), it calls for chickpeas. I just didn't put chickpeas in and it became a fabulous, tasty side dish.

Two of my favorite Vegan cookbooks that have recipes that are easy to make Paleo are by Deliciously Ella – Deliciously Ella Every Day and Deliciously Ella Natural Feasts (<- this one is called Deliciously With Friends in Europe)
