That sound you hear is me wiping away the tears as the final hours of the Whole30 pass. Today is the last day of the Whole30. (Yes, I know that some people choose to carry on and complete the Whole35 or the Whole42, but I’m content to stop at 30). In just a few short hours a month without dairy, sugar, and grains will be over.
It’s finally starting to dawn on me that I can start eating other foods again. Very soon, I will have a meal that doesn’t just consist of meat and vegetables. I can add ketchup to my eggs tomorrow and I don’t have to ask a chef 20 questions at a restaurant. This sounds like heaven.
But this also leads to the question, what’s next? I outlined my post-Whole30 diet a couple days ago. On day 27, it sounded like a sensible plan. Today, it sounds way too restrictive. So, what will happen tomorrow? Will I eat a hamburger with donuts for a bun? Will I eat a whole block of cheese? Will I have the birthday cake on top of the microwave that is two weeks old? I’ll let you know tomorrow.
This isn’t the last Whole30 post. Tomorrow, I’ll have a recipe roundup courtesy of my wife and sister-in-law. On Thursday, I’ll have some final thoughts on lessons I learned from the Whole30.
And tomorrow I’ll let you know about a brand new 30 day challenge that starts this weekend. (It doesn’t have anything to do with food).
Thanks for reading my Whole30 posts. I owe you.
