I Tried #Whole30 Meals For Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner πŸ‘©πŸΏβ€πŸ³πŸ₯—| #SmackYoLip

– Hey YouTube world, it’s me, Evelyn. If you are trying to eat more wholesome, nutritious foods this year, then Whole30 has
undoubtedly come up in your internet research.
(ethereal music) And I thought to myself, I
said, “Self, you probably “have some Internet cousins
who would very much appreciate “a Whole30 edition of #SmackYoLip.” The series where I taste and/or prepare beverages and/or food stuffs
and share my thoughts on them. So that’s what we finna do in this video. Breakfast, lunch, dinner,
snacky snack, and a drink. So the idea behind Whole30
is that for 30 days you eliminate sugar,
alcohol, grains, legumes, soy, and dairy from your
diet because the creators of Whole30 believe that
those categories of food cause the most inflammation,
the most allergies, and the most stress
internally in your body. Then after the 30 days, you
strategically reintroduce those foods back into
your diet and monitor how your body responds. The goal is to finally be
able to pinpoint what foods make you feel crappy. You might realize that soy
makes you feel a type of way, so now you know to stop eating tofu. If you find out that dairy is
what’s causing your pimples, then now you know to cut out cheese. And I’m sorry for you. During Whole30 you are not
supposed to weigh yourself and you are not supposed
to count calories. According to the creators of Whole30, this program is not a
weight loss solution. It’s simply a tool to help
you better understand food and its impact on your body. “Well God dang, what can you eat then?” I said to myself as I
was Googling. (laughs) You can eat meat, seafood,
which I always thought was meat but whatever, eggs, nuts, seeds, vegetables, and fruit. So I bought my father the Whole30 cookbook I think two Christmases ago. So I took it, and this is where I will be pulling my recipes from. But to be clear, this
is not a cooking video. I will try my best to
link recipes in the video description box, so that’s
where you will find that. So are you ready? Before we begin though, disclaimer. (soft jazzy music) Alright, let’s start off with a beverage, just because I’m gonna
need something to wash everything down with,
you know what I’m saying? You can’t be eatin’ with a dry throat. So let’s try the cucumber
pineapple sparklers. (chill jazzy music) Okay we have it here. Ooh, I match. Okay. I got a reusable straw.
(tapping) So not only we Whole30,
we eco friendly, okay? No straws in turtle’s noses. (smacks lips) Mmm. Let me tell y’all somethin’. This hit. The unsweetened pineapple juice. Who needs sweetened pineapple juice? To be honest. Pineapples are already sweet enough. The lime juice is giving
me more, you know, more of the citrus. And then I actually used La Croix key lime flavor
as the sparkling water and that really added some
depth to the beverage. The cucumber makes it, like, fresh, you know what I’m saying? So it’s sweet, tart, fresh. ASMR. (gulping) (laughs) Oh, let me know in the comments below if you lived in a house where you couldn’t drink anything until you
were finished with your food. If your mom was like, “No
juice until you finish.” If you wanna know my opinions
on La Croix in general, I have a video where I tried
all the original flavors. Click in the atmosphere for that. I give this a 10 out of 10. This is delightful. (smacks lips) (smacks lips) So breakfast, um, I’m a cereal girl, you know what I’m saying? Toast. I love a good toast. So the concept of not
having grains for breakfast, that pretty much goes against
like all humans, like, everybody got a porridge of some sort. Also, if you don’t eat eggs,
I found that there are just not that many options
worth your while, but, I did decide on something,
so for breakfast we are going to be having, ah,
we are going to be having the Tex Mex chicken frittata muffins. I chose this recipe because
it can use leftover chicken that you have, leftover
vegetables, and because they’re cooked in a muffin tin, they
make for a portable breakfast. (chill jazzy music) Alright. Here we go. Okay. Mm. Mm. Spongy. Definitely spongy. The flavor is there. I’m getting the egg. Chicken, I’m getting a
little bit of the salsa that was incorporated into it. The spinach. Oh, you can’t, girl, my bad. Mhm. No, this good. The thing is, it needs cheese. It would be fire with some
shredded cheese on it, but, we can’t do that. I like how you can
incorporate veggies into this. You could really add anything. Like, this is just Tex Mex
because we added salsa. You can make them taste
however you want to taste. Ooh. Is this a mukbang? Let me find out, I am
doing my first mukbang. So the thing about Whole30
is that sugar, you know, added sugars are not allowed. Condiments? All have sugar. I mean besides maybe mustard,
but ketchup has sugar, I mean salsa has sugar. I’m lucky that I found my
regular grocery brand salsa, the cheapest one, didn’t have added sugar. So be careful when it
comes to buying your sauces and your condiments and
this cookbook actually has recipes for sauces. I feel like if you eat two
of these for breakfast, you gonna be good to go. 10 out of 10. I would no be mad if
that was my breakfast. Mm. Usually for lunch you’re
at school, you’re at work, you’re out and about,
you know what I’m saying? You don’t want to eat anything heavy. Anything that will put
you to sleep, alright? So we’re gonna go with a nice salad. I think that’s what
we’re, I, I think that’s what we’re gonna go with. So for lunch, this
looks pretty good to me, as far as a salad goes, right? This is the chicken
cutlets with bitter greens, caramelized pears, and shallots. So I’ma just pan fry some thin, skinless, boneless chicken breasts,
and you know, you just put it on a bed of greens.
(chill jazzy music) So here we have it. Okay, we have the bed of greens. Um, it said something about escarole. I don’t what that is, so
I just got some greens. I got a bag of greens, a
spring mix, if you will. Put it on there. The pears, those are the roasted pears, so shout out to pears. Um, and then the pan fried chicken, super thin chicken breasts. Now the breading on this,
remember you can’t use grains, so it’s not regular flour. The breading has all the
seasonings and it uses coconut flour and almond flour, which, not gonna lie, is expensive. Coconut flour and almond
flour is expensive, so share, you know, if you have a friend
who is also doing Whole30, go ahead share ingredients,
because eight bucks, hey. That is so good. Woo! Let me find out I’m Whole30. Mm. Now, I’m not gonna lie,
I make my own dressings pretty frequently. Now this dressing would be flaming fire with a little bit of honey in it. A little bit, like a little, like a touch. But, it just goes to
show you that you don’t really need it in order
to have a very delicious, very tasty, satisfying dressing. Shoot. I’m about to clean my plate. Now I will say this drink is
probably like a treat drink. You don’t wanna be guzzling pineap–. Well, maybe you do. Time for a snack. So for snack time, I
decided to make the smokey barbecue spiced kale chips. So the spice blend that
makes the barbecue flavor is salt, pepper, um, garlic
powder, onion powder, paprika, and chili powder.
(chill jazzy music) So let’s give these a taste. They sound like they’re gonna be chips. (crunching) Sorry. (smacks lips)
Okay. That one had a little
extra seasoning on it. They got some crunch to ’em. Not mad at that at all. It’s still kale, though,
you know what I’m sayin’? I can’t decide if I like them or not. It’s really like you’re eating
barbecue spiced kale dust. I mean I’m still eating
them, as you can tell, so, they do taste good. The paprika, that’s
giving you that smokiness, the chili’s giving you
that little bit of spice. (crunching) It’s like I’m trying to
decide if they’re better than potato chips and the answer is no, ’cause they’re not potatoes. But if you just want a new way to eat a bunch of greens, I feel like this recipe will get the job done. It’s a little salty though. Mm. I give these, I mean as far as like spice and the flavor that they, um, chose, like the barbecue flavor,
I give that a 10 out of 10, that’s a great flavor, spice combo. As far as the concept of kale chips, I’m gonna try it again. I’m gonna give it a six out of 10. And I don’t know how long kale chips keep. I really recommend making a batch knowing you’re going to eat them ASAP. All right, so we’ve eaten
breakfast, lunch, a snack, drank some drank and
finally, we have dinner. I already bought chicken,
right, for lunch, so let’s keep that same energy and have a chicken dish for dinner. I decided to make the tomato
coconut curry with chicken. (chill jazzy music) So here is the tomato
chicken curry masala-esque, tikka masala-esque dish. I say esque out of respect
to my South East Asian internet cousins because
this not what your mama, um, this not what your mama makes, but, the flavor palate is there, you feel me? Did you see it? Alright. Oh. The spice? Okay. Oh, let me get the chicken,
I forgot about that. I definitely taste the coconut. I used, you know, coconut milk in the can. This is that tikka masala creamy texture where you usually use heavy
cream, which you can’t use, ’cause that’s dairy so coconut milk it is. This tastes good. It’s spicy, it has that,
like, zingyness from the fresh ginger that’s in there. The thing about these
pot meals is that you can customize them to be what you like. If you like super super
mild, you can make it mild. If you like flaming hot spice, you can make it flaming hot spice. This has jalapeno in it, and
it’s really carrying through even though I took all the seeds out. I have tried over the
past maybe two years to really understand cauliflower rice. It is not rice. And if you are on these
food programs that call for cauliflower rice,
you’re gonna do yourself a disservice if you compare it to rice ’cause it just don’t stand
up to the magic of rice. But, it’s good. And because it’s not rice,
you’re not gonna feel that, uh, you’re not gonna feel the itis afterwards, because you literally just ate vegetables with curry on top, you
know what I’m saying? You didn’t eat that grain. There’s no pasta, no rice, nothing to make you feel
like, “Oh my god, oh my god.” Even with the confusing
texture of cauliflower rice, I would give this a nine out of 10. The only thing that would
make it a 10 out of 10 is if I had some good old basmati rice. Good old jasmine rice. Like God intended. So if you’re wondering,
“Hey, there was no dessert.” That’s because dessert isn’t
really allowed on Whole30. Now you can probably make,
and you can definitely find recipes online that are desserts made with Whole30 compliant foods,
but I think just the concept of wanting a sugary item goes
against Whole30, I think. I don’t know how they explained it, but, this gonna be as much
dessert as you’ll have on this program, ‘kay? So that’s it, that is my Whole30 edition of #SmackYoLip, the series
where I taste and/or prepare beverages and/or food stuffs
and share my thoughts on them. Honestly, these dishes were very flavorful and relatively easy to prepare. So yeah, that’s it. Um, I thoroughly enjoyed this. I’m full, you know what I’m saying? In the comments below,
let me know which one of these recipes you’d try
to prepare for yourself, and if you are currently on Whole30, feel free to use the
comments section to complain, you know what I’m saying, or
sing the program’s praises. We’re here for you. So good luck with all
your health goals, boo, and I will see you on
the internet somewhere. Bye. (crinkling)

  2. You are so funny. Love your video/channel. When I was little my stepdads mom would make me eat all my food before I could drink water and I thought it was because she didn't like me. With your video I just learned that other cultures do that too. Thanks for unintentionally helping me work through some childhood trauma hahahhaa.

  3. This is the best Whole30 video I’ve found. Thank you for being honest and relatable and just plain real about it. You didn’t have super intricate food choices and you made comments about needing cheese and the texture of the rice. I’ve seen so many videos that seem like ads for the program and they never say anything negative or really relatable. You’re reaction to kale chips made me laugh. I had the SAME response. I don’t know if I like these, but I’m still eating them. PS. They do NOT keep long at all.
    Also, have you tried sweet potato toast? Don’t. It’s a lie.

  4. With meals, we could always drink as much as we wanted to drink. At home, milk was usually served. At one set of grandparent's home, it was water, tea, or milk – and at the other set of grandparent's home, it was water, milk, prune juice, or Pepsi. Funnily enough, we usually waited until 3/4 of the way through our meals until we reached for liquids. Thanksgiving still is the exception. You drink water and/or wine with the meal because the food is so rich. Our family didn't buy alot of juice (besides prune), so juice was considered a "treat."

  5. Girl, this video was awesome. I do the whole30 every year just to detox from everything and get a fresh start. I loved you unbiased and fun video! Needless to say, I’ve subscribed.

  6. I just can't get behind the kale chips movement. In no way, shape, or form do kale chips satisfy your cravings for potato chips, as other youtubers try to claim.

  7. Loved your video! I'm currently doing my first round of Whole30 right now. I just finished day 11, and I have to say, I'm not hating it! I really didn't think I'd make it this long, but I've just been taking our regular family meals and making them compliant (burgers, steaks, taco salad). This video is making me want to buy the cookbook, though. I need that drink recipe in my life!

  8. I can't have chicken 3x a day…. girl, you 'bout to grow feathers. πŸ“πŸ“ Kudos! New subbie. πŸ™‚

  9. Evelyn can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make a video on how to create a $ SAVINGS FUND $ so that I too can quit my job (I work for the government😒) and move on to GreatnessπŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ’…πŸ½πŸ’«

  10. Well damn, this video hit. I wasn’t even thinking of trying this damn whole 30 but that drank and that salad looked good af. Might just sliiiiiide myself a peek at that book just for some new recipes.

  11. To be honest, I watch so many stand-up comedians' podcasts, and your channel makes me LOL way more than theirs does. I legit pause rewind and play to laugh more

  12. i love you! and this video. i lived in a family where i couldnt drink anything 30 minutes before and after eating.

  13. I'm not on whole 30 but I am on a low FODMAPS diet. It's definitely possible to make some tasty dishes but it's hard if you don't have the time πŸ™

  14. I never understood not drinking with your food. We didn't abide by that rule in my house growing, but I had a friend that did. I never went back to her house to eat after that. I also worked at a school where the kindergarten students couldn't drink and eat at the same time.

  15. Yesss I lived in a house where I could not drink anything until I finished eating. Oh my I used to struggle. You see it did not take much to fill me so I would drink my juice and only eat my meat and be full. My mother said forget thaaaattt. lol lol Not only couldn't I drink but I could not eat the meat until I was done. And if you are like me I need some liquid to wash it all down in between bites. To this day I still eat my meat last.

  16. I have dreams of hiring a chef in the near future to try 30days whole meals without diary , sugar and the likes .

  17. Definitely was not allowed to have juice until meal was finished. So now to this day I drink my beverage last… well with a sip here and there because I'm grown now..

  18. 2:01 got you a new subscriber. Girl when you mocked that focus hand 😭😭😭😭
    *After reading the comments and continuing the video I see this is a thing that you do and my position is solidified πŸ˜‚

  19. Dont know where I've been, but I have not heard of whole 30, but im gonna buy the book so my mom can use it to cook my meals from now on!! LOL- No, I dont cook!!!

  20. I’m c completely new to your channel but I absolutely love this video. I agree with you whole heartedly about grains for breakfast and rice. I personally had a hard time with whole 30 because I can’t eat eggs without carbs and I don’t like meat every day. Plus I had hard-core cravings for my rice and beans and also for peanut butter lol.

  21. That hand that you put behind that book when you held it up TOOK ME OUT LOL I REALLY NEED YOU TO CHILL!!!

  22. Rice is a religion to Haitians, so I don’t know about this one πŸ˜† Would love to see you do the Moon Juice cookbook. That thing looks insane to me. Bet you don’t smack yo lip once. 🀣

  23. Lmaoooo i was definitely brought up in a home that i couldn’t drink until i ate everything on my plate..it became such a habit that i unconsciously did it until my late 20’s

  24. Cheese is that guy who’s no good for you but he’s always looking good as hell ☹️

  25. Idk WHYYYY I waited so long to watch this #smackyolip. Probably cause I didn’t want to get sucked into the whole30 hype which, Evelyn, you didn’t do even though the food looked good. I loved this episode!

  26. The moment you looked into the camera and drank the cucumber drink is when I subscribed..this is after watching 4 videos. Hilarious

  27. I am definitely from a household where you couldn’t drink anything until you finished your food.

    Edit: I’m not African, I’m Black & Cherokee. Both sides of the family are like this lol

  28. I realized that table salt makes me so sick after being on whole 30. I’m so glad I did it. It made me more aware of why I’m putting in my body. There are sooo many recipes out there that are delicious without all the additives.

  29. basically most of indian food is whole 30 compliant.. except for what you get in restaurants in the US thats packed with butter and cream haha

  30. I grew up not drinking juice until I finished eating. I was so excited when you made the curry dish. I may even consider making my own kale chips! Love your videos Evelyn #InternetCousin

  31. Did the whole 30, recommended by my daughter. It was perfect for me, so good that I doubled it. πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ‘‘πŸ³πŸ—πŸ—πŸ–πŸ–πŸŒ½πŸŒ½πŸ΄πŸ πŸ πŸ’πŸ‘πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸŠπŸŠπŸŒ°πŸŒ°πŸŒπŸŒπŸπŸπŸ“πŸ“πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’πŸ’πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸπŸπŸˆπŸ‡πŸ†πŸ†πŸ…πŸ…πŸ„πŸ„πŸŒ±πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒπŸŒΏπŸŒΏπŸ’§πŸ’§

  32. For people who suffer from ibs or other inflammatory issues in their digestive tract I can really recommend a low fodmap diet. I used to have cramps so bad I would literally faint and now I'm almost pain free. This seems to be very similar to that.

  33. My stepfather would reprimand me every time a took a SIP of my juice during dinner/ he was like don't get filled up on juice like I wasn't going to eat dinner after having a SIP of juice. Ridiculous

  34. Great job, I love this video! I love that you called us your Asian cousins πŸ˜‰ also rice is life. I can't live without rice.
