Whole30 "What I put on my plate " Day 1

Today is DAY#1 of my Whole30 challenge! So far so good, I haven't had any cravings (YET) and I am hoping to have kicked my caffeine dragon. Woooh nelly, it's only day 1 lets not get ahead of our selves! But that dragon would be nice to slay soon. Here's some photos/quick and easy recipes of What I Put on my Plate today!
Meal 1: spinach tomato scramble! 4 eggs (3 whole, 1 egg white), sautéed spinach, cherry tomatoes in coconut oil. Topped with black pepper!

Snack: 5 almonds, a couple cherry tomatoes
Meal 2: Baked Salmon seasoned with clarified butter, paprika and fresh minced garlic. For veggies I filled up the plate with steamed broccoli! I accidentally forgot about my broccoli so they got a little overcooked! Oops!
Snack: 3 whole celery stalks, a couple of cherry tomatoes
Meal 3: 12 shrimp (didn't TRY to count, that's how many fit in my palm! :)) cooked in clarified butter and topped with crushed black pepper, alongside a vegetable medley. In my veggies tonight, I had zucchini and squash that was precut into "spaghetti" noodles via WholeFoods, a yellow onion and about 4-5 baby portobello mushrooms! I sautéed these up with clarified butter and added only about 1 1/2 tsp. paprika and 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper to taste! I also ate 1/2 of an avocado. 

*I know the photos are not the same quality as my other posts, they are taken via iPhone so bear with me this month! It was important to me to at least grab some photos of what I eat so everyone can see the yummy-ness that Whole30 has to offer! *
I am back in school today and that made the meal planning a little harder. However, I was able to get myself up, fed and to the gym without even a cup of coffee! That's will power my friends. Get this, I haven't had coffee all day! That's probably why my eyelids are halfway closed as I write this post. Today wasn't too bad, but it is only Day #1, I don't feel "GREAT" but I don't feel "BAD" I feel... normal. I haven't missed anything or had any cravings yet! I also kept up on my daily water intake so that was nice! It's amazing when you start to really keep track of what you eat-you start keeping track of all other "health" related things too! So i'll keep you all posted. For now, i'm relishing in my biggest feat so far... NO COFFEE/CAFFEINE ALL DAY. :)
