…and eat some marshmallows while I tell you about it.
I was wooed by the Whole30 program. I had been noticing that our typically chip-free, snack food-free, dessert-free (I have excellent willpower against not-so-good-for-you foods in the store. If they make it into the house? All bets are off.) kitchen was becoming the comfortable home to lots of stuff that I don’t typically like to eat all the time. In similar and saner times of my life, I usually just tossed it or had everyone eat it all up before we started fresh. But this time I went a little crazy and got Omar to go along with me on a 30 day diet reset.
10 days into our dairy-free, grain-free, bean-free, legume-free, sugar-free, alcohol-free adventure, I realized that I was thankful for the nutritional reset but completely unthankful for the constant 9 day headache. If I had some underlying health concerns that I thought this could help, I would’ve gladly stuck it out. I know several people who have loved what this program has done for their health, and I am incredibly happy for them. My kids were incredibly happy once their happy mama was returned to them. And believe it or not, one muffin did the trick. Headache gone, happy mother present.
