    Let Me Introduce Myself

    Hi y'all! I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Sheri. I live on a 1-acre homestead, and I committed myself to doing whole30 because of severe stomach and gallbladder issues. I just finished my first round of whole 30, and am presently working on the Reintroduction phase. Because of severe pain I know that doing this for just 30 days will not be enough to heal my digestive system! So, I'm planning on a whole30, or 60, or even 90! Most likely, because of the progress I have already had, I expect this will be a lifetime gig! I'm okay with that! - Being healthy and pain free is a good thing! I even have plans to turn the whole northwest section of my small farm into a whole 30 compliant garden! Looking forward to meeting others who are on this same journey! Here's to better health! ~ Sheri

    Reintroducing Legumes

    I began whole 30, not for weight loss, but rather because of stomach pain... Before whole 30, I would eat a homemade Ham & Bean soup with no pain... Yesterday, I started reintroducing legumes and had some of said soup... However, by the end of the evening, I wound up with such pain in my stomach and I felt so sick! The only difference to the recipe -- I used dried beans instead of canned. Even though the beans were soaked overnight, and were cooking for hours and hours, the beans never really softened. Could this be the reason I had the stomach pain? Perhaps my stomach couldn't digest the beans because they were not soft enough??? Any thoughts? Thanks in advance! ~ Sheri
