There is a timeline for Whole 30 that (fairly precisely) predicts what you might be feeling as you go through the 30 days of this program. Day 1, feels good. Day 2-3, hangover (I did not experience this). And then day 4-5: kill all the things. I think I skipped the hangover and went directly to Kill All the Things. I didn’t think I had any real food addictions, though I knew sugar was a little problem for me. However, this Whole 30 has seriously brought out the worst in me. I’ve been angry, impatient, frustrated, annoyed, overwhelmed and just generally full of rage. I’ve also felt extremely tired and sluggish the past few days. But we’re on day 5 now, and things are looking up. It seems that most of my troubles were coming from under-eating and over-complicating the process. I hope that in the next few days, my temper will start to even out as I continue to figure out this way of eating.
This was lunch yesterday. A hard-boiled egg with mustard and homemade mayo (post to come!), and a kiwi, strawberry, apricot, and apple fruit salad drizzled with almond butter and coconut cream, sprinkled with roasted almond meal. It was delicious.
