I can’t believe it’s the end of January and we made it through Whole 30. It’s a bit weird to think back and realize we cut so many things out of our diet because it’s become so normal that I forgot about cheese & chocolate. How is that possible, really.
I won’t say that it didn’t have it’s hard moments – being at friends birthday parties and not enjoying a cocktail, realizing eating out is almost impossible & you would rather just eat at home & did I mention dessert?!
We have decided to stick with our meal planning because it made getting through the week in a healthy way super easy. It just takes a bit of preparation over the weekend and by the second week we learned making a crock pot meal and having some frozen things on hand were lifesavers. If you are interested Trader Joe’s has tons of healthy frozen options that are Whole 30 compliant – just check out the Whole 30 recipes instagram for a list!
Slowly but surely we will add cheese & some grains into our diet again but probably not that often. The biggest thing that has changed for me personally is when I think I ‘need’ food. My eating pattern drastically changed and I no longer feel the need to snack all day & especially at night after dinner. Stress eating is so comforting for me and this has helped me knock that out.
If you are thinking of giving it a go I highly recommend it and just try to stick through those first few days that are rough – it gets easier, I promise. Also, definitely have an accountability partner to keep you on track I couldn’t have done it without Trevor! Overall, it was totally worth it for us and Iet me know if you have any questions about the program!
