KelBelle Posted March 19, 2014 Share Posted March 19, 2014 Hi. So yesterday was Day 11 of my second Whole 30. I woke up early yesterday and put a roast in the slow cooker and was so excited to have it for dinner. I got home and it wasn't ready and I was caught without food to eat. I immediately grabbed the jar of almond butter and started eating it with a spoon straight from the jar. There was about 1/4 of the jar left. I ate it all while thinking "Now what am I going to do for dinner???" in a very whiney voice. Then I found some trail mix (compliant ingredients) and mindlessly ate that as well. My question is: if my mindless eating involves only Whole 30 compliant ingredients, is it still a cheat? I mean, I consider what happened a binge even though it was grain dairy sugar alcohol etc free. It feels like I cheated, however in my defense yesterday at work was March Birthday Celebration in which I watched about 30 of my coworkers chow down on the fluffiest cake and icing I have ever seen. Binging on almond butter and sunflower seeds is better for me than having 2 big pieces of cake. Mentally it feels the same though. Big Confession: The trail mix also had raisins . This is what I am most worried about. What if they had sugar added? Okay I think I just answered my question. I'm going to do Whole 42 instead of Whole 30 just in case. I will still count these 11 days but will tack on 12 just in case I accidentally unknowingly ate sugared raisins. Its the roasts fault. Okay thanks for reading my shameful confession .
