    Restarting whole30

    Fender I am/have been logging. I think it is just that last "bad habit" that I am struggling to let go of.

    Restarting whole30

    Increasing fat and carbs and peppermint tea after dinner helped...still felt the "need" for something after dinner but had the tea and went to bed.

    Restarting whole30

    Thanks everyone. I had opened a tin of coconut milk to make my kids some ice-cream, I have dumped the rest of it in the sink now. Can't do the same with nuts and blueberries as I'm not the only one in the house who eats those. I have made an effort to increase my fat and carbs today an hoping that gets rid of the post dinner hungries. I think I need to just go to bed earlier and then the temptation is not there.

    Easter menu

    I'm the only one whole30ing here but so far I am making spelt hot cross buns for my family (cause we have to have them apparently) Going to roast a leg of lamb so that is easy, with roast potato/sweet potato and a stack of green beans and Brussels sprouts. Plenty of bone broth in the freezer to make gravy
  6. I am looking for some advice/ opinions if people are happy to help. I am on day 11 of my 2nd whole30 but think I might need to restart the whole thing. I have been trying to avoid nut snacks and sneaky swypo stuff (hello blueberries almonds and coconut milk) after dinner. I had been doing ok however twice this week I have had nuts/berries after dinner. And then gone back for a second serve. Does this deserve a Restart? Or am I heading into OCD/ED land here? Part of me is saying "restart this was a habit you wanted to break" Part of me is saying " it's blueberries and almonds, lighten up already" So which of my inner voices would you listen to? : )

    Best Ever Homestyle Meatloaf

    Yeah, also wondering if I mis-converted something from US to metric. Next question : ) I asked on your blog but will pester you here too. How long would the sauce/ketchup keep do you reckon? I made up the rest of the tomato past I bought for this into sauce for my kids to use.

    No time for proper reintroduction

    I had a holiday the week after I finished my first whole 30. It stuffed my re-intro schedule. It has taken me a few weeks post holiday to realise I need to do another whole 30 and a proper re intro with no interruptions. So. Y suggestion would be go enjoy. He trip, come back and start afresh.

    Day 25 and doing it tough

    It is nice to know I am not alone, day 27 and just feeling venal fatigue but not as feral/cranky as I have been. I am due to have a break from my weight training in another week as well so my body is just tired in general which don't help Looking forward to the finish line now and deciding what I think I can re-introduce into my diet.
