My first week of Whole30 is drawing to a close, and it hasn’t been bad. Maybe it helped that O was at his dad’s for the first day, and I didn’t have to see or smell any non-complaint foods…But even once he was home, I had no issues sticking with my planned foods.
One of the major surprises was how much O has liked all of the food I’ve made so far…In fact, most nights he has eaten everything on his plate and asked for more.
I’ll admit, there have been times when I’ve been tempted. Pouring O a bowl of my favorite Vanilla Life cereal, for instance…I normally mindlessly eat the ones that don’t end up in the bowl, so I had to catch myself before I actually got one in my mouth. Another time, I was making O toast and my mouth was watering just smelling it.
Still, I haven’t missed some things as much as I thought I would. Not eating bread or grains hasn’t bothered me much (with the exception of the toaster smell). I thought I’d miss peanut butter something fierce, but I actually really liked the almond butter I tried. I’m pretty excited to try cashew butter next!
