Day 20: What Will We Eat

Tomorrow we enter single digits. I remember when we were in the early days of Whole30, and day 20 seemed so far away. 

I’ve learned a ton. Cooked my fair share of meals. Feel more alert. It’s the craziest love/hate relationship I’ve ever had. 


Tonight’s dinner: Lime Chili Mahi Mahi with roasted broccoli and Balsalmic mushrooms. 

Ok. This fish is amazing. 

What you need: 

  • Mahi Mahi
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Chili powder 
  • Cumin
  • Lime juice 

Mix up the spices. Coat the fish. Squeeze some fresh lime juice. Grill for about 8 minutes. 

This dish would make the perfect fish tacos. So full of flavor. And the lime adds another layer of flavor. 

The broccoli and mushrooms were a yummy side dish. You definitely need to make this. 

I’m currently trying to figure out the best way to reintroduce food. I don’t want to feel sick for days. But I really really really want to eat a cinnamon roll. And drink a beer while I sit by the pool. 

But I don’t want to lose this feeling of clarity. And my skin looks the best it’s ever looked. And I don’t want sugar and bread to clog up my skin and brain. 

So the struggle is real. 

When you first start Whole30, all you can think about is how much work everything is and how it’s not worth it. 

Then Day 20 happens and you worry about how you’ll keep you brain fog at bay while you enjoy and nice slice of pie or a cup of cheese dip. 

Any advice is much appreciated. I want to make sure our reintroduction is mindful.
