Lunch Suggestions for a Whole30 Beginner

*Plaice with Lemon Sauce*

When I was visiting lately a friend of mine in Ischia, she asked me if we could do the Whole30 together. As a start into a healthier diet and mainly because she needs to stop eating bad food and loosing some weight as well.

I had no problem with that as the Whole30 is not far away from the paleo I am practicing.

So I told her what the diet means and allows to eat, or better what she has to get out of. This Whole30 is a start to a proper diet and consists in 30 days of clean eating omitting all dairy, all kinds of sugar, all grains and pseudo-grains, no legumes. Of course no alcohol, no coffee. And don’t create baked goods like treats, bread and similar.

In 30 days everyone should ‘re-learn’ the real food, get rid of the cravings and start a whole new food-life.

So in these days with my friend I told her what alternatives there are for her coffee and cookie breakfast she changed into fruit with coconut milk.

For lunch we had a few really super tasty dishes with fish, hamburger, freshly made mayonnaise, lemon sauce, eggs and much more. Especially the zucchini fritters were the highlight.

We had one special treat that was my wish. I had the opportunity to have some ice cream, made with olive oil. And a friend made the best ever ever almond ice cream for me, us. I know it’s not Whole30 but it was my treat, my opportunity after years to have ice cream.

My friend has lost after 30 days a few kilos (she needs to loose more) but doesn’t feel very different. Maybe it takes more time, maybe it’s also because she is not doing any sports. I didn’t as well when starting the paleo but I felt immediately better. Maybe my problems were more obvious, hers are more hidden and take time to change and heal.
