Whole30: Reintroduction Week Review

Hi! It is absolutely POURING here in Boston today! We have major flood warnings happening, but it’s been a nice calm day in the house. Freddy has been napping pretty much all day (he must be wiped from day-care all week!) and I am able to get a lot of work done in the office.

Whole30: Final Week Review

Is it already Day 30?!! ….of the program that felt like it would last for 100 days!  I am on to the fast-paced reintroduction phase and I am pretty excited! Honestly, I had to check the calendar like 3 times to be sure the 30 days was over.

I never realized how much I eat grains until I had to eliminate them or sugar — I can’t even talk about it! I crave ice-cream and sweets after every single meal! #struggling Needless to say, this is much harder than a vegan diet — I can go without meat or dairy, but to not be able to have oatmeal with honey for breakfast or make a tofu scramble is NOT EASY!  I’m going to stick with it though – there are just so many positive reviews about this program and I really want to find out what foods may be causing issues for me. I talked about that here. Once, I hit (more…)
