Day 1-whole30 Pan fried Chicken with Grilled Pumpkin and Sweet Potato

Day 1-Whole30

The first day was pretty difficult…it’s not easy to get around the fact that I can’t have any dairy, grains or legumes. I spent 1 hour yesterday roaming in Auchan looking for something that fit the rules of whole30…But aisle after aisle was a disappointment…I bought some chicken and lots of veggies..

One of my friends is studying Nutrition and she wasn’t quite sold on the idea of no legumes and diary and suggested I do a modified version by including legumes and yoghurt. I haven’t decided yet if I will do this yet but I will consider it down the line.

What I ate on day one

Breakfast

-Frittata with onions, tomato and basil

Lunch

-Pan Fried chicken breast in peri peri spices with grilled sweet potato and pumpkin.

Dinner

-Banana
