Week 2 Meal Plan

I was sick last week with a cold. But I did well with sticking to my meal plan. My first week I was having sugar withdraws and mild headaches and I was tired. All part of the whole30 experience. As of today I do feel good and ready to tackle my second week. I thought I would share my week 2 of whole30 meal plan with you.

Fit Tip Tuesday

Don't allow the thought of celery to take you over the deep end when it comes to staying on track with your daily calorie intake. This green stock will give you the satisfaction of snacking without the extra calories.    Did you know that one cup of chopped raw celery has only 16 calories and 1 large stalk has only 10 calories. if you are cooking it will have around 27 calories per cup. Where the challenge come in are the extras that you might add to give it flavor but depending on what you use it can help or harm. I like mine with One tablespoon of almond butter and I count this has one of my daily fats. You do need to take into account that almond butter has 100 calories, 10 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein, 4 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram of fiber.
