So only HALF of this week is Whole 30, because guess what, my friends?!
You guessed it! Whole 30 ends this week! I am back to enjoying a protein smoothie starting on Wednesday, and if I can be completely honest (and I never thought that I’d say this…) I can’t wait! Who knew, that I would miss my protein shakes in the morning?
I guess when you eliminate a food group, and focus on another, you are bound to miss it, and I am done with eggs every day. Yes. For a while atleast, I would like to cut down on this one particular food. I am craving my protein shake right at this moment and cannot wait for that one re-introduction to my meals. That and maybe some toast. I will see how that does for me, because I am enjoying the fruits of the 30 day labor of Whole 30: a flatter stomach. Not totally flat, as the uninflated tire of a twin-mom, will never go away without surgery (gross, I know)! But the little pooch is much improved for the time-being.
I don’t know if it is because of the decrease in sugar alone, or of no bread and bread products with gluten, no soy, or a combination of all of this- so I might just try to reintroduce a few types of food at a time. Smoothies are the start- non-soy vegan protein and fruit with cashew milk. If I start to bloat up- this may get cycled out and unfortunately I will have to change this up too.
For now, I have planned a Whole 30 week, up to three days, and then after that it is a regular meal plan for me, just fleshed out for three meals a day.
