We’ve spent this post Whole 30 period adding back a few things one at a time and paying close attention to how they make us feel. BUT for the most part we have stuck with the plan. I’ve even lost another pound.
My observations are pretty simple. I only missed two things: toast and ice cream. On day 31 I made myself some toast at lunchtime. We love our pan-fried potatoes with onions (most days sweet potatoes, occasionally white potatoes) topped with a fried egg so having toast for breakfast was unnecessary. After I ate my delicious Tuscan white pane with just a smidgen of butter I felt icky. My stomach felt inflated and I was feeling pretty sluggish. It was enough of a turn off that I didn’t eat toast again until yesterday when I ate some Italian bread toasted. I felt less icky but still not as good as I had on the days I didn’t eat any bread. I guess bread is one of those things I’ll be eating very little of.
Yesterday after thinking about it for 35 days I got to have some ice cream, I knew if I was going to eat ice cream it had to be my most favorite ice cream. The one I think of as being perfect. The one I dream about.
The one I would roll around naked in, wait, strike that. This is a G rated blog. So off we went to Kimball Farm where I got a small dish of Coffee Oreo. It was delicious. It was exactly what I needed. I savored every bite. The Husband got some other flavor that looked like vanilla but with stuff in it. Coffee Oreo is the only flavor that exists in my world. The Husband enjoyed it going down. He said it was good. By the time we got home He had regret. Major regret. Even this morning He had regret. I think he’s lactose intolerant. H and N are lactose intolerant so He may be as well. Isn’t it strange they are all allergic to penicillin too and I’m not. More ice cream for me, and penicillin too!
