So, in case you hadn’t heard, I recently finished “a Whole 30” – a type of whole foods, elimination diet, where one abstains from soy, sugar, dairy, gluten, grain, and alcohol for thirty days in order to reset the body and find out if some foods don’t really agree with you. I started it on February 15th.

And yes, I played by the rules, yes, I did.

If you’re curious — and you know you are — head over to Good Cheap Eats where I’m sharing what I learned during my Whole 30.

  1. I think it’s amazing that you made it a full 30 days on this diet. It’s not easy and you definitely spend a lot more time in the kitchen when you can’t use any processed foods. It’s not a cure all, but it certainly makes you more aware of what you’re eating and how your body reacts to different foods. Thanks for sharing your experiences!

    It as fun to read about your Whole 30! I was recently diagnosed with a lot of food allergies and was basically forced into a strict Paleo diet. (Extra strict because 2 of my allergens are eggs and tomatoes). I started with the Whole 30 so I would have an outline for my new lifestyle. Ironically I found the second month way easier because I wasn’t concentration on which “day” of my 30 I was on. I have been very judgmental of Paleo in the past but now I am a convert. It’s amazing how much better I feel now. And strangely enough I don’t eat any more meat then I used to, I just eat a boatload more veggies and fruits. I wouldn’t have chosen this diet bu now that I’m on it I rarely find it onerous. (Disclaimer: I have been known to cry over the cheese selection at Whole Foods, and once at Wal-Mart over my favorite Easter candy. LOL)

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
