cynrok Posted January 24, 2018 Share Posted January 24, 2018 Hi all, I'm back! Took a break from Whole30 after I realized it was causing me to lose my vision. I found out this can happen to diabetics who suddenly go very low-carb. Ate non-Whole30 carbs for one day (yes, I mean cake!) and vision was back to perfect instantly--crazy! But in the long run low-carb is a good thing and I'm told the vision thing is temporary while my body adjusts to new sugar levels and vision will return to normal after a few weeks of low-carb. Moving forward I will be making sure to have fruit with every meal and potentially fruit as a snack as well, depending on my blood sugar levels, per doctor's orders, and will just keep using those CVS glasses until vision returns to normal! So, I restarted...I was on Day 17 I think? And I restarted on Sunday, so this is Day 4. B: 2 slices compliant bacon and leftover mulligatawney (based on a cook's illustrated recipe, basically stewed and then pureed chicken broth, coconut milk, carrots, potatoes, celery, onion, apple, garlic, ginger, lotsa curry powder, cumin) L: leftover taco meat, guacamole on jicama slices (found a tiny jicama and made the paper-thin cuts on my mandolin--mini tacos!) D: Asian chicken and green beans--so amazingly delicious. Started with this recipe but used boneless skinless thighs and did it sheet-pan style w/frozen green beans, pouring the leftover marinade over everything and baking for 40 minutes...the beans were so tasty after soaking up all that delicious marinade! Feels good to be back with a plan that works for me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
