Noelle Posted January 31, 2014 Share Posted January 31, 2014 My log title is a toast: This is the year that I focus on regaining my health and strength, and getting my back back. I found Whole30 a little over a year ago, just in time for my 30th birthday. Eating this way was both easy (I was already gluten- dairy- and soy-free), and enormously difficult (I'd been vegan for five years). I finished my 3rd Whole30 on January 26th, and I feel healthier than I have in a long time. My mood is fantastic, and my chronic back pain is still there, but it's not flared up. I think I'm finally on the mend. This is my first time doing real reintroductions. I was inspired by Bethany's reintro schedule. This is mine: 1/31 â€” Non-gluten grains 2/1-2/2 â€” Whole30 2/3 â€” Legumes 2/4-2/5 â€” Whole30 2/6 â€” Soy 2/7 â€” Whole30 2/8 â€” As Whole30 as possible going out to brunch with my in-laws. 2/9 â€” Dairy Whole30 2/10-2/11 â€” Whole30 2/12 â€” Corn 2/13-2/14 â€” Whole30 2/15 â€” All done with reintroductions! Eat real food for the rest of my life! Dairy 2/16-2/17 â€” Whole30 2/18 â€” Re-test Non-gluten grains without sugar 2/19-2/20 â€” Whole30 2/21 â€” Finally done with reintroductions! Eat real food for the rest of my life! * * * I may do a proper gluten reintroduction at some point, just so I can record my symptoms. I know that stuff is nasty, and it and I do not get along. It might be interesting to know whether a bite of something really special might be "worth it." But having been gluten-free for almost six years, avoiding it is second nature. I know non-gluten grains will make their way back into my diet in the form of homemade baked goods a few times a year, and rice in sushi now and then. As will the occasional peanut butter. And some day, I will want a few bites of crÃ¨me brÃ»lÃ©e. But mostly I'm doing the reintroductions out of curiosity, so I can say for sure how certain foods affect me.
