So, maybe my husband forgot and had a cup of hot chocolate first thing yesterday morning, but, I didn’t! I made it through day 1 and am half way through day 2 of my committment to do Whole30 twice each year. Surprisingly, Day 1 wasn’t too bad. I am “cheating” a bit this time around and drinking my Plexus Slim and taking my Plexus supplements.

Overly optimistic, as usual, I had hoped to have the kids ready to do Whole30 with me this time around. Instead, I am choosing to finish off the pasta, bottles of salad dressing, popcorn, and whatever else isn’t Whole30 in my pantry. As planned, we had salad and baby carrots for lunch today, but refrained from opening our Tessamae’s dressings.
Apparently, I have a salad dressing problem. My refrigerator will thank me when it is all gone.
At the last minute, I decided to have my daughter make popcorn (we have 10 lb. of organic red, white, and blue popcorn in the freezer) to go with the salad. It may seem like an odd combination, but I want to get on with using the popcorn. My 3-year-old daughter had eaten all of her salad by the time I finished serving! Hopefully, we will finish out our Whole30 (if I ever get it officially started for the kids) just as strong.
The Whole30 food has been wonderful! I wish I cooked such delicious food all the time. Pan-fried potatoes with leftover roast for breakfast yesterday.
All things considered, I feel pretty good. I expected to have a terrible headache and chills like I did the last time I did Whole30, but I don’t. I feel pretty great, although a little tired from being up with a little guy with a tummy ache last night. Tonight, I meet with friends to talk Whole30 at our local coffee shop. The owner is making us a Whole30 approved coffee drink! I’m so glad I decided to do Whole30 again. I’m looking forward to the brain fog clearing and am so glad I won’t be buying soda and tea when I’m out any longer. My budget thanks me.
How is your Whole30 going?
