I am already learning a lot about the relationship I have with food. Before this Whole30 I honestly didn’t think I could quit the chocolate and dairy and it felt unnecessary. I am surprising myself with the transition and I’m starting to realise why it is actually necessary for me to do this.
Today has been much better after yesterday’s miserable headache I had for most the day. It really illustrated how much caffeine and sugar I was actually getting from the chocolate
I am feeling excited for this journey and sharing my experience with you all. It’s bought my passion back. I will say that I’m spending a lot of time in the kitchen, even more than I usually do so before you go jumping into a Whole30 you might need to prepare for the time you will spend making sure you are eating enough, especially veggies. Also the money you will be spending on so much food! I have just ordered the book Well Fed so I’m looking forward to it arriving so I wont run out of ideas.
One of the things about the whole30 is when you sit down for a meal you cannot be distracted, this means no TV, texting, internet or whatever could be distracting you. I am being very conscious of this so the TV is off when I eat so I can be fully engaged in eating!
