How to Survive Whole30

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed from time to time I put myself through absolute hell set out to do something really healthy for my body and mind, and partake in the Whole30 Challenge. In a nutshell (yes, you can eats nuts), the Whole30 is a 30-day reset where you replace sugar, grains, legumes, dairy and booze with whole foods like vegetables, fruit, meat and seafood. Did I lose you at no booze? I get it, and yep, no wine, beer or liquor for 30 days. You will live, I promise. Is it hard? Yes. Is it totally doable and will you feel like a champion afterwards? Oh hellllll yes. Check out my tips and let me know if you have some of your own to share in the comments below!

Get yourself a big ‘ol calendar. And use this lifesaver timeline to mark the days you can expect to feel great and the days you can expect to feel murderous a bit grumpy. Note that your mood may not exactly match the timeline, but it’ll be pretty darn close. The best part of the calendar is crossing the day off and being that much closer to your goal. Go you! P.S. If you love the timeline above, you’ll also love these other helpful official Whole30 downloads.

Hide all the things. Go through your pantry and fridge before you start. Toss or donate any no-no’s, or put any that will still be good on day 31 in a paper bag (like one from Target or Trader Joe’s) and push it to the back of the fridge. Ignore it for the next 30 days. This way when you open the fridge, you’ll know anything in there is fair game.

Food prep your little heart out. This might be the most important tip. It’s super frustrating when you get home from an unexpected long and hard day and you have no idea what to eat/don’t want to cook dinner. Set yourself up for success by spending a little time over the weekend cooking and prepping as many meals as possible. I wasn’t much of a chef pre-Whole30, but I now have more than a few favorite recipes (keep scrolling), and I really look forward to my Sunday evening time in the kitchen.

On office life. If you work in an awesome office like mine, there are always amazing treats out for the taking—donuts, cupcakes, chicken & waffles, pizza, beer. I’ve been taking pictures of all the treats that magically appear, which in a weird way, makes me feel like I’m consuming them. I sat close to a tray of donuts in a meeting once just so I could smell them. On that note, you will do really weird things on the Whole30. Just be prepared with your lunch and know there will be treats next month!

The first weekend was super hard for me. Get yourself some La Croix or Topo Chico with lemon or lime and watch a good movie or Netflix season. Scott and I have done the Whole30 three times now, and on the first two tries, we always found some reason to talk ourselves into cheating. “Welllll, maybe we can have red wine on weekends. It’s good for your heart!” I’m proud to say we didn’t cheat at all during our most recent Whole30 in September. I tell you this because you will think of hilarious reasons you can just have a little of this or that. But don’t. When you’re having a huge craving, make yourself busy and let it pass. When you wake up the next day without cheating, you’ll feel so much stronger. It’s totally a brain game. So weird! So fun!

No but really, load up on fun water. Okay, so part of the challenge is that you’re not supposed to swap out bad stuff for fake bad stuff. For example, you shouldn’t drink Topo Chico from a wine glass. But I mean… if it’s going to keep you from falling off the wagon, do it! Perhaps give it the old college try first though and reserve the mocktail for when you just. can’t. take. it. anymore.

For my sweet tooth sisters. Okay, same point here. You’re not supposed to eat fake dessert because Whole30 is all about breaking those bad habits. But if you’re really hurting, keep some dates in the freezer and treat yo self TO ONE when you’re about to fall off the ledge. I swear after not eating sugar for a while, it’ll taste like chocolate.

Don’t go crazy on fruit or nuts. Scott and I did that during our first go and I think it messed with our results. We treated ourselves to a few grapes and strawberries at breakfast and lunch on our recent Whole30 and it was totally fine.

When days are rough. Remember why you’re doing this. “Remember that you are the CEO of your body and you should be boss about that sh*t.” Also, talk to a friend or head to Instagram to see how others are staying strong. Whole30’s official Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest definitely help too. It’s such an interesting science experiment you’re doing on your body, so when days are hard, just think of it that way. It’s pretty amazing what you learn about your habits and brain. I promise by the end of the 30 days, you’ll feel in charge, rather than your body/sugar being the boss. Neat.

Okay cool story, but what the hell do we eat?? The hardest part of Whole30 is not knowing what the heck you can eat. Huzzah! Check out my favorite recipes below.

Breakfast:

  • My Whole30 Pinterest board, duh.
  • Make this breakfast casserole on Sunday night and it will last you through Friday morning. Trust me, it will save you on busy mornings. I trick it out with 2-3 chopped sweet potatoes, half of an onion (chopped), a bag of frozen spinach and 11 eggs instead of 10. We fancy.
  • On weekends, we get down with bacon (check the label for sugar-gah), avocado, eggs made with coconut milk and a small amount of fruit. Oh, and coffee with coconut milk and cinnamon is delightful!

Lunch/Dinner:

  • My Whole30 Pinterest board, duh.
  • Roasted veggies and sausages make for an easy and quick meal you can make at work for lunch or dinner if you get home late. I love Trader Joe’s already cooked sausages. Be sure to read the package though—they’re not all Whole30 approved. We love the chicken apple, jalapeno, garlic herb and sun-dried tomato flavors. Roast two pans of veggies on Sunday and they should last you through the work week.
  • I make this turkey kale soup every Sunday night and it lasts us 2-3 dinners.
  • It’s always good to keep a ton of tuna fish in your pantry. I mix mine with Just Mayo, chopped black olives, chopped cucumbers and Dijon mustard. I eat it with carrots or plop a big spoonful in romaine lettuce cups. Side note: I tried to make my own mayo and it was a huge fail. Just Mayo is approved and does the trick.
  • Tuna patties with Just Mayo for dipping, sweet potato fries and grapes. I LOVE this recipe. It’s so dang good and easy. Instead of breadcrumbs, use almond or coconut flour and allow the patties to hang out in the fridge for about 15 minutes before cooking so they stay together in the skillet.
  • Slow cooker chicken with roasted veggies and grapes. The grapes feel like a treat. I make the chicken on Sunday and it lasts for a few meals. It’s super easy and sets you up for success. This chicken recipe is a favorite. And so is this one.
  • Butternut squash, sweet potato or zucchini zoodles. You can use a spiralizer like this one if you have time to cook. OR, buy the zoodles already zoodled. We found this brand at our local grocery store. Just throw them on the stove with garlic, onions and a little bit of clarified butter, then toss in some protein like grilled chicken or shrimp. (Keeping cooked, deveined & peeled shrimp in the freezer is a lifesaver on late work nights.)
  • Meatballs, y’all! They’re great with zoodles, clarified butter, garlic and diced tomatoes or a no sugar added tomato sauce. I like this recipe, but often use turkey instead of pork.
  • Fried okra with avocado cream is such a good side.
  • I could eat a pan of prosciutto wrapped asparagus for dinner.
  • Sweet potato, kale and shrimp skillet. So easy and delicious. Make more than you think you need for easy lunch leftovers.
  • Jalapeño turkey burgers with sweet potato fries, diced red onion and Wholly guacamole.
  • Moroccan spiced roasted sweet potatoes and carrots with Balsamic steak rolls.

Wheel House Cheese

Okay, my favorite things go like this. Scott, then corgis, then popcorn, then cheese. And I think wine and IPAs are in there somewhere. And queso. And guac. Okay there’s a bunch, but let’s move on to the point of this post. CHEESE! Scott and I made a visit to a new-ish cheese shop near our hood in LA, Wheel House. It’s a cute little spot filled with meats, charcuterie, olives, crackers, jams, and of course, CHEESE! Need a gift for mom this weekend? Cheese. Need a platter for a party? Cheese. We were a bit overwhelmed looking at the large selection of goodies. Blues, Bries, hard cheeses, soft cheeses. Oh good lawd, I was in paradise. Thankfully there were a couple very nice cheesemongers happy to steer us in the right direction. (Thanks Ben and Noble!) Ben let us try a few different cheeses and schooled us on the origin and how they were made. We ordered the Moses Sleeper brie-style and Bayley Hazen Blue from Jasper Hill, along with the Manchego-like Malvarosa from Spain. Shout out to Valencia and Vermont for making some dang good cheese! They were so amazing. Though we took our cheeses to go, we plan to come back to enjoy a cheese, meat and/or Paté board on their patio. By the way, my patio pic is a bit outdated. Their outdoor space now looks like this! So cool. Wheel House is in the process of getting their license to sell beer and wine (hopefully by next month!), but in the meantime you can bring your own wine. There’s no corkage fee and no need to bring glasses—they have you covered! Ben insisted that beer and cheese make a good couple, so I can’t wait to come back to get his recommendations. Wheel House also offers classes so be sure to sign up for their emails to get first dibs. Next time you’re in the mood for cheese, visit Wheel House. And bring a date!

48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas – Part 2

After tastings at 4 different wineries, Scott and I were in need of a bit of a reset. We took a quick power nap back at the hotel and downed a couple Dirty Chai’s from Java Ranch before setting off to explore the main drag in Fredericksburg. Side note: Some of the nicest people on the planet work at Java Ranch. Seriously! We went back the next morning and had so much fun chatting at the register that we almost forgot to order. Ha! Meanwhile on Main Street, we stopped into Hondo’s (a must), before meeting a lovely Longhorn named Bingo. Hey girl!

48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.com48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.com48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.comAs I mentioned in part 1 of our Fredericksburg trip, Scott and I met John Washburne and Chef Adam Yoho of Otto’s German Bistro earlier that day. They were so friendly and invited us to stop in for dinner that night. I’m so glad we did. I fell in love with Otto’s at first sight. My eyeballs bulged with delight as we walked up to the front patio filled with happy patrons dining under the glow of dim light bulbs strewn from above. I was giddy. Atmosphere is one of my favorite things when dining out, and Otto’s knows what I like. Wood beam ceilings, an open kitchen and a relaxed vibe with super friendly employees who make you feel at home? Sign me up.

48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.com48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.com48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.comAnd the food. Oh, the glorious food. We started with the Flammkuchen, a flatbread with creme fraiche, Cambozola, Gruyere, caramelized onions and green garlic pesto. My eyes are rolling back into my head just thinking about it. For his main entree, Scott ordered the Beeman Family Ranch Ribeye with an Akaushi ribeye, confit potatoes, roasted broccolini and red wine butter. Thanks (so much!) to the recommendation from Chef, I had the Pan Roasted Alaskan Halibut with roasted potatoes, fiddleheads and a beet puree. My photos sadly didn’t turn out too well—just know that everything was so wonderful. For dessert, we were treated to the Foie Gras Creme Brûlée served with pomme frites. We paired all of this with an amazing Texas red, the Pedernales Tempranillo, which is served on tap. I still can’t get over how good this meal was.

When we finished dinner, Chef gave us a tour of the back of the restaurant and their new soon-to-be-open restaurant next door, Tubby’s Icehouse. Amazing, right? Can you handle how vibrant that tile is? Love it.

48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.com48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.com48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.comWe ended our trip to Otto’s with an education in sour beers and good convo at the bar. I just love these guys. Otto’s (and now Tubby’s!) is one of the many reasons I am so excited to move back to Texas. It’s a short trip from Austin, and I can’t wait to pull up a stool at the bar and hang with the other locals. It’s seems a bit like family inside, and I want to be a part of it. Texas wines on tap, local beer, fancy cocktails and incredibly delicious locally sourced produce and meats? How can I not lurve this place?

48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.com48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.comOur last stop for the night was not a planned one. On the way back to our hotel, we wandered into Der Daiwel, a heavy metal bar owned by two sisters from Luxembourg City, Luxembourg. All I can say is yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.

48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.com48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.com48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas | MustacheMelrose.comThe next morning on our way out of town, we had a butter-licious brunch at Silver Creek.

Good boy.

48 Hours in Fredericksburg, Texas – Part 1

I wanted to show Scott a bit more of Texas, so instead of going straight up I-35 and getting to Austin in less than 2 hours, we took a detour and drove to Fredericksburg, the home of Texas German. Crowds of people are lured to Fredericksburg each weekend for its charming strip of restaurants, bars and shops… and wine. The Texas Hill Country is the second largest wine region in the nation, and Fredericksburg is a popular place to make your home base before setting out on a tour of the many surrounding wineries. So popular, that I almost wasn’t able to book a wine tour. Spring Break + Bluebonnets in full bloom + gorgeous weather = no wine tours left! Lesson of the day: Book months ago. I first called Clint from Cellar Rat Wine Tours who apologized for not being able to fit us in, but gave us a ton of recommendations for who to call next. (Thank you so much!!) One of his suggestions was George from George’s 290 Wine Tours. He too was booked, but was more than happy to connect me with Leanne from Texas Two Step Wine Tours. Guess what? She was booked too! But just like the others, she was incredibly nice and helpful. Leanne told me to call Brandon at Moon’s Vineyard Voyages. He was booked (gah!), but was able to squeeze us into another tour led by his pal Eric. Success! Thanks everybody!! Eric from Moon Vineyard was a star tour guide. He was fun, friendly and gave us plenty of time at each stop to ensure we never felt rushed. Our fellow wine tourists were 3 nurses and their 3 fire-fighting husbands. They were such a fun bunch and I’m so happy we got to spend the day with them! Our first stop was Hye Meadow Winery, where a gang of Shelby Cobras attempted to steal our attention from the wine. Nice try, guys.

Question: How can you beat the scenery and outdoor space at William Chris Wines? Answer: Ya can’t! Their dry Rosé is hard to beat too. I could have spent the whole day sipping it out in the sun. On the way out, we met two of the main guys behind Otto’s German Bistro, Chef Adam Yoho and John Washburne. They were serving delicious treats from their soon-to-be-open-can’t-freaking-wait restaurant called Tubby’s Icehouse. The two were super friendly and invited us to stop into Otto’s for dinner that night. (Stay tuned for that insanely awesome part of the trip.) #NOM

I’m still a little emotional over not buying the perfect cowgirl apron I spotted at The Faux Show Collection.

San Antonio Days 3 & 4

Let’s continue with our San Antonio shenanigans, shall we?! We spent the day with my step mom Mona. She’s this wonderful person who has no fear and will conquer anything and everything she sets out to do. She sees the world in other creatives, and will encourage the heck out of you in just one short chat. Her enthusiasm and spirit make me feel like I am She-Ra. Mona took us to a new resto/bar in SA called Barbaro. It’s located in a great neighb of San Antonio—Monte Vista. A friend of hers (Hi Whitney!) met up with us and we all gushed about future creative projects we would someday hopefully work on together. It was fun, fun, fun. My favorite thing about this place (if I have to choose just one) is the off-the-menu drink called the Blanche Devereaux. I MEAN!! A drink named after my favorite golden-ager floozy? It’s made with lemon, bourbon, apricot liquor and honey syrup. Sign me up. My step bro John (Hi Juanito!) met up with us and had their glorious pizza. Don’t miss out on this place, y’all. It’s as cute as it is yummy.
