Comments: I have found that this leaves me feeling very satisfied until lunch time.
On Monday Mess asked if I would take her to the mall so she could spend some of her money she's saved up on new clothes. Per her request we went to Justice. I personally am not a huge fan of the store, it's so very overpriced, but she loves it. We also had to run a couple of other errands. While we were we decided to grab lunch. Thanks to other Whole30er's on instagram I knew I could eat at Chipotle with still being whole30 compliant. I had one of their bowls with the pork, guacamole, salsa, and lettuce.
On of my FAVORITE meals so far is one I've had a few times. It's basically a taco salad without a shell or beans. I make my own taco seasoning (chili powder, ground cumin, sage, garlic powder, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper) and use grass fed ground beef. That is on top of organic romaine lettuce, and I add a little sweet potatoes, avocados, local salsa, tomatoes, mango and a touch of mango.
Yesterday we had a girls day with a couple of my cousins. I'm so into my Whole30 that I brought food over there to chop and cook! Here is my lunch from yesterday:
Before we headed to my cousins house we threw dinner in the crock-pot. I know it sounds funny to love something other than a person close to you but I do love crock-pot meals. So easy! So simple! Last nights dinner was from my emeals paleo menu. It was beef carnitas with cilantro cauliflower rice. We had it with a little avocado and tomato. It was very easy to make the cauliflower rice, although I wish I had a food processor instead of a blender, which would have made it even simpler. Little Love is starting to slowly warm up to new foods. She ate this beef carnitas up quickly.

You're not suppose to weigh during your Whole30 because it's not a weight loss plan. However, I knew I felt like I'd lost some weight and just had to weigh myself this morning and remeasure myself. I've lost over 4 pounds in 10 days and have lost over 5 inches on my body, 2 of those on my hips. I've never felt so good. My back and hip pains are pretty much nonexistent. I don't feel bloated and disgusting when I go to bed or wake up. I feel amazing. Absolutely amazing.

we're meant to go. He's blessed me with the Whole30.
