Throwing in the Whole30 Towel

Time for me to admit the Whole30 is not for me.  Some may say I didn't give it the full shot, but I am just not currently cut out for it.  I have found that  balance is much better for me.  While I did like that the plan encouraged me to try new things, I did not find that all of the restrictions were worth it.  I like being able to balance my good food with some treats now and then.

I think going forward I will cook mostly paleo meals at home and then when we are out I can choose non-paleo meals if I want.  I liked most of the meals we tried and they are meals that I would cook again.  The food itself I don't mind, but I did find that I missed some of my non- fruit and vegetable carbohydrates.  Not that I eat breads or grains everyday, but every once in a while.....

My husband on the other hand has had the complete opposite experience when it comes to the past (almost) 3 weeks.  His plan is to go through the entire 30 days and I am trying to convince him to write a little about it for me.

So, there it is.  I may try again another time....

  1. I'm on day 19 today and feel the same way! My husband doesn't have self control when it comes to treats and I feel like I do... I feel no tiger blood, but I think I'm stubborn enough to finish it just to finish it. Did you ever try it again?
