befabdaily Posted May 19, 2012 Share Posted May 19, 2012 So, I've been planning on starting a Whole30 next Saturday -- May 26. I was waiting until I got through some business travel that's going to have me locked up in conference rooms, suffering through catered food and staying at sites where there appear to be nothing but chain restaurants and not even any sidewalks or public transit to get me to more fruitful locales. But, I've been planning this for a few weeks, using things up, not buying replacements, and trying out Whole30 style meals. I'm putting coconut milk in my coffee, and there's no bread in the house anymore. Grain-based foods have started to taste wrong to me on the occasions I eat them -- just pasty and stodgy. My sinuses (which are my achilles heel) already seem clearer and my belly is remarkably peaceful. I know that I always come back from conferences feeling bloated and icky. There are always piles of crappy pastry everywhere you turn, and big stodgy overcooked meals. I really don't want to disrupt my trajectory like this. So I am just going to start today, acknowledging that I will probably not succeed, but making it a challenge to eat as "Whole30" as possible while I'm on travel. I figure I can at least make sure the macro-ingredients look as good as possible even when I can't control the micro-ingredients. I'll report back, and then start on the real thing next week.
