Hi there everyone! I finished my Whole30 last week and chose to reintroduce legumes on day 31. I ate black beans with lunch and then hummus and carrots for a snack. I felt fine the next two days after that. I didn’t want to reintroduce peanut butter on the legumes day because in the past i would always get a stomach ache after having it. But on the day I was supposed to reintroduce gluten-free grains i decided to give peanutbutter a try after all (which I’m not even entirely sure if that was ok... but I gave it two days) It did give me a slight stomach ache which was gone as fast as it came - but I did notice. Anywho long story short i think it was on the day I had peanutbutter (or maybe the day after I reintroduced legumes the first time) I noticed that the skin around my mouth/on my chin started to break out a little. Yesterday and today I’ve noticed that there are some zits on my forehead also. Nothing crazy, I don’t deal with acne thank God, but I didn’t get breakouts on the whole30. My skin actually was pretty great after around day 13 of whole30... (I think the breakouts then we’re caused by dairy though.) Would you suggest I should go back on the Whole30 until the breakouts have stopped and then try legumes again? Or should i wait until the breakouts are gone and reintroduce something else? I appreciate your guys‘ help!! So glad to have done the whole30 and to now be able to come here and get help from this awesome community! Theresa
Quick question about reintroduction- I’m starting with legumes and got a packet of Rx honey cinnamon peanut butter and a packet of the Justin’s peanut butter - obviously the Rx has honey added and I’m wondering if for reintroduction if I should stick to the plain one - thank you for your advice in advance!
Wrapped up my first Whole30 in October and reintroduced legumes on Oct 31st: peanut butter, hummus and black beans — probably 2T of each. I thought it would be an easy first re-intro because I didn’t think these foods bothered me... (haaaa) That day I was super bloated, the next day I had small dry, itchy patches on my ear lobes and a couple bumps around my wrist/forearm area which has turned into a rash that has gotten worse and moved to other areas every day since. It is currently covering my ears, arms, neck and most of my face. It has been 6 days since I reintroduced legumes. I’ve stuck to a Whole30 diet since reintroduction day. I’ve applied tea tree oil with jojoba or coconut oil and Benadryl cream which helps the itching and inflammation but doesn’t make it go away, and taken Benadryl at night which hasn’t lessened the rash. Logging my experience since in case anyone searching for something similar can read — and wondering if anyone else has experienced symptoms lasting this long and getting worse everyday. Starting to worry that something else is going on, with terrible timing! Thanks!
