Hi Everyone - I’m also starting my first Whole30 on January 1st and I’m very excited! I think my biggest challenges will be getting past my lazy attitude about cooking and giving up coffee. I have prepared though and have my first week grocery list and recipes all ready to go and I plan to buy 1 week of Premade Paleo just so i have something in the freezer in case I fall down on the cooking at times.
I realize quitting coffee is not required on Whole 30 but the idea of black coffee is a bummer for me (nut pods and cocoa nut milk don’t do it for me). But more importantly for me, coffee upsets my stomach and always has - I just power through and I don’t like the idea of drinking something that I know I feel yucky on during the whole 30.
I’m also going to keep my eye on how I feel when I eat eggs. I don’t eat them much because when I was young they clearly made me lethargic. Not sure if I still get lethargic but if I find that they do during the whole 30 I will likely eliminate them during the initial 30 days.
Good luck to everyone!!
