Whole FLIPPIN’ 30

Ya’ll.

I’m doing it. again.

You read that right.

I did amazing the first time. I mean not really, but in hindsight that’s how I remember it. But the truth is it was horrible. I hated it. BUT…

For those 30 days I had NO stomach issues. Zilch. Nada. Not even with all those salads. I mean come on, between the salad and fruit you would assume I never left the bathroom, but I didn’t. I felt good. I slept good. I WAS good.

WellРover the past month my stomach issues have started creeping back up. I mean I had some really good take aways from the Whole 30  and I have applied those, but overall I am back to eating how I normally eat. Which is pretty good. And pretty healthy. And pretty full of GLUTEN.

I think that’s the culprit. So let me clarify. I am doing the WHOLE 30 BC (I do a lot of things BC… that means “By Cara”) This Whole 30 I will allow myself a probiotic yogurt every other day. I honestly believe that helps my stomach and I don’t know of any adverse affects I have had from it. So I am keeping that.

Also I am allowing myself a FEW (still undecided on what exactly) gluten free products. That’s so NOT the way to Whole 30 it by the book, but again this is BC. So….

No cheese.

No sugar. (other than a very VERY rare case like being somewhere and all that’s offered is cookies and i’m starving. And even then it is ONE.)

No milk no icecream= no problem. I don’t like either.

No GLUTEN! (no bread no grains no oats)

No corn (that kills my stomach… that means no movies. I can’t see a movie without popcorn)

NO COMPLAINING! HAHAHAHAHAHA! Just kidding.

Maybe this will help me decide once and for all if it’s gluten. Sigh.

Here we flippin’ go again!

I have no clue why you would want to follow this journey but thank you,

P.S. The only reason there is a HEART around the word WHOLE 30 is because I couldn’t find one with the NO sign on it.

Whole 30…Day’s 4 and 5

I could not be more over this.

I didn’t have the energy or want-to to blog about my experience on these days. I have found a few bloggers who [with much enthusiasm] write about their experience. I wish I could be like them. I’m already justifying my reasons for quitting… trying to stay strong!

Okay– it goes like this.

Both days for breakfast: eggs. Eggs eggs eggs. I’m so sick of eggs. I also had bacon and fruit.

Lunch: salad. Salad salad salad! I don’t have time for anything else. So salad it is. {I really do love salads…i’m just tired of them}

Dinner: Day 4 we went to P.F.Changs. I had one my research before hand and knew that I would consume SOME gluten if I got the lettuce wraps. BUT I also knew that I could avoid the sauce and ask for “light soy” and I would be better than not. So– I did it. I ate the lettuce wraps which were DELICIOUS and I don’t even feel about it.

Dinner Day 5: This was pretty dang amazing as well!!! I found the recipe on Pinterest and gave it a whirl. They were so good. My husband (who is so anti any kind of diet when you can’t eat whatever you want) genuinely loved them and asked me to make them again. Check out the recipe here.

They turned out great.

Snacks both days: almonds, scoops of almond butter, carrots, fruit, raisins

Take away’s:

  1. For me, it’s not dairy that is the problem. I know this. I need my yogurt!!
  2. It probably is gluten. Gluten is probably what makes my stomach flair up.
  3. I would rather apply the principles of the Whole 30 to every day life in moderation. Meaning- avoid peanuts and gluten. Cut back on dairy. Avoid sugar as much as possible. Use coconut oil all the time for cooking. This makes so much more sense to me than going 30 days without any of this stuff and then going back to the same old habits. [I understand that is not the plan of Whole 30, but let’s face it– it happens]

If I make it 2 more days i’ll be shocked!

I’m trying here…
