So I am on day 19 (I lost a day somewhere, and didn’t log my food…) of the Whole 30 program experiment. Day 19, people. That is 19 days without:
- soy, corn, grain of any kind
- some other things that my brain forgot, I am sure!
Since I am a wiz at subtraction, that means I have 11 days left. Yes, please.
I may learn to have loved this little test, but right now I am not feeling it at all. In fact, my main focus right now is all MENTAL. Yes, I am mental, but I mean, I have to think about all the positive things like how I have been sugar-free for 19 days- that is right in line with my goals really, of staying off sugar for this long! Check out my Whole 30 Food Log (so far) and it should give you some idea of my “meals & feels” along the way!
Since, I know some of you might be doing a Whole 30, which is maybe why you stumbled here, or thinking of doing one, in which case, I want to point you to, a few must-haves for the ride!
- Coconut aminos
- Clarified butter
- Raw nuts
- Sweet Potatoes
- Apples and Sunbutter
- Any Whole 30 soup made ahead
- Any Whole 30 vinaigrette made ahead
- A Whole 30 book, and their resources
- A paper or online, food journal (like my food Log)
Truly, I am glad to have tried this, and I hope I have some changes in my energy level. According to the Whole 30 Plan Timeline (which you need to check out if you want to do this plan), I should have “Tiger Blood” as they like to call it- I think that means boundless energy and feeling awesome: no crankiness, intestinal problems, heavy legs….So I am still waiting for this blood. I want it coursing through my every cell. It doesn’t even need to be a tiger…perhaps a bear. I am just sick of the “sloth blood”- it is just not working for me!
