Day 13 Whole30

 
Today is that female time of the month so I didn’t feel great. It hasn’t been long enough to notice if dropping dairy will affect it, hopefully next month i’ll have a better idea. Suffice to say I had some pretty rampant sugar cravings, in particular…you guessed it CHOCOLATE!!! boy I really really wanted to cave today but I didn’t.  Dallas and Melissa warn that this part of the program can get really intense, I’m looking forward to day 16 when hopefully the cravings will be gone.
 
On the bright side I am really loving trying lots of new things because I’m not having any dairy, I really do have to think outside the square! 
 
My new Well Fed cookbook is just awesome!!! I highly recommend this book, for anyone from beginners to those of us that have been at this a long time, like myself! Great ideas and lots of new flavours, herbs and spices that I wouldn’t have thought of.  
 
The introduction is awesome, a very basic yet well thought out way of explaining Paleo and how to transition to a Paleo diet.  Plenty of advice for meal planning and preparation tips.
 
It would be a perfect gift for that person in your life that keeps questioning about your “crazy diet” but isn’t ready to change their eating habits because they don’t understand how to do it. I would say if you read this book and didn’t like the recipes and suggestions then there is no saving you 😉
