I may have to claim temporary insanity last week.
Okay, maybe it isn't temporary, but my 'announcement' of it made my insanity more prominent. In case you missed it, I may or maynot have announced that I was going to try my hand at this whole Whole30
Truth is, I do eat clean 90% of the time. I have three little vices that I outlined last week:
CHALLENGE ACCEPTED: No sugar, no fake stuff, no honey...got it. **
CHECK: I don't drink alcohol and cannot stand the lingering taste when cooked so I don't use it.
CHECK: Being low-carb and gluten sensitive, I've all but eliminated most grains. For the next 30days for me to adhere to this I will remove my beloved rice-cakes, oats, and the occasional corn tortillas.
CHALLENGE ACCEPTED: One of the biggest components of WW is fiber, fiber, and more fiber. Add in my personal history of my single days aka 'my vegetarian times.' This will difficult, but I will do this with the one caveat - Clean almond butter from the grinder machines is 100% just almonds has been acquired to replace my peanut butter.
CHECK: MSG. Again, already done. We have been MSG free for almost 7years due to Hub's migraines as it is a trigger.
CHALLENGE MODIFIED: Since I am lactose intolerant, this 'no dairy' is fairly easy to follow. The only dairy I do use is nominal cheese (cheese stick) and the splash of dairy creamer in my morning coffee.
**MODIFICATIONS: This makes the whole Whole30 a moot point, doesn't it? Hear me out then laugh at me, k?
This past weekend I actually previewed and starting making baby steps.
I haven't had any peanut butter since last Wednesday and I've survived. I didn't have any grains at all this weekend.
My coffee? My plan was to wean to avoid any migraine issues. Last Thursday and Friday I limited myself to only one large cup of morning coffee. Saturday I had but one single small cup. And Sunday I delayed it as long as possible and replaced with black tea that was nominally sipped.
Here is where I could insert a chart reflecting the correlation to my migraine incidents if I was to take the time to chart it. Yeah...yesterday wasn't a pretty day around me.
My modification is simply that I be allowed my morning coffee, but not a second cup...or the afternoon cup.
ONE 10oz cup of coffee
ONE sweet-n-low in said coffee
ONE splash of creamer (1/2 tbsp...I already do measure it)
All other components of Whole30 is all good to go.
Shall I be honest and use the #Whole30ish tag instead?
*This modification is brought to you by the sane April that does will not require the use of prescription drugs.
