Detox Diet & Discovery: Week 1

Felipe has difficulty shopping produce because he injured his finger.

Getting Started

I’m thrilled you’re taking this journey with me, I can’t wait to find out how we feel and what we learn about ourselves.

To get started, I’d get familiar with the Whole30 Plan and it’s rules here.

One of the things that was clear to me after reading the Whole30 book was the necessity to plan and develop a strategy. Your strategy may differ from mine, but here’s mine and why I chose it.

My Strategy

With my injured hand, I am extremely slow in the kitchen, I’ve gotten some mobility back and I should get a bit more once they remove the pins in early February, but chopping and cooking is still a challenge (Curious? Graphic warning! Here’s my finger before surgery and after surgery).

I need simple. Therefore my plan is going to involve a few things to ensure I succeed.

  1. Simple recipes, preferably sheet pan or one-pan meals
  2. Lunch will be LifeSource Deli Whole30 compliant meals or the previous nights dinner
  3. Consistent online grocery orders on Mondays for pickup via Shop.LifeSourceNaturalFoods.com (shopping lists will be included with links every week)
  4. Have a backup meal always ready, mine’s Lemon Pepper Chicken and Potatoes
  5. Repetitive breakfast/Protein Shakes (technically not Whole30 compliant, but I want to build connective tissue by supplementing collagen and other key vitamins. Any other ideas that could help? please share them with me in the comments below.)
  6. Meal prep for the week on Sunday for key items
    1. Ketchup
    2. Mayo
    3. Bacon
    4. Carrot Noodles (shave your carrots into thin slices and store in an airtight container filled with water)

Since I work for LifeSource, I have several advantages that I intend to take advantage of. One is our Deli.

I’ve asked our Deli to prepare me Whole30 compliant recipes every Thursday since I treat my team to lunch. If you could benefit from Whole30 compliant recipes in our hot bar, let me know in the comments below.

It’s Super Bowl weekend, enjoy the weekend and hit it hard on Monday. I am using a Sunday – Saturday week, but you can adjust this to fit your needs. 

I’ve also linked a convenient shopping list so you can add items to your online cart quickly for week 1. 

Week 2 is in process. Any ideas for recipes, please share in the comments below.
