Whole 30 Complete!!

I actually finished my Whole30 a couple weeks ago.  The only reason I stopped was because I was getting ready to go to camp and we had cooks that would be cooking each of our meals and I didn't want to be a pain for them and not eat what they cooked or ask for something different.  So, I finished my whole 30 and I wanted to start adding stuff back in to see how my body reacted and if there was something I absolutely should stay away from at camp. 
But, before I get into that here are a few things I ate the last week or so of my Whole 30. :)

The Naked burger again :) This time I grilled some peppers and put those on top along with a grilled pineapple.  I also added a little mustard.  I didn't realize my mustard was compliant and I'm not usually a huge fan of mustard.  But...this was oh so tasty!! Loved it!

Burrito Bowl made with broccoli slaw and ground beef and some toppings!  Yum!!

Sweet potato, zuchini and egg fritata! I actually liked it! I got the idea from THIS RECIPE. I just had a triangle each time and was able to split it into a few seperate meals. This is a great one to make ahead of time to have something easy to grab.

Sweet Potato and carrot cakes.  Yummy! I used these for a few seperate meals. Also makes for something easy to crab when you need.

It felt great to finish my Whole 30, especially since my first attempt I only got to Day 22.  So I guess this wasy my 2nd round and I FINISHED!! I really didn't want to stop, but I was worried about eating stuff at camp and not knowing what I should stay away from. 

What I learned during my Whole 30

*I learned that Fat is not the enemy.  I learned that Healthy fats help me feel full. 
 *I learned how important good sleep is.  
*I learned how hare it is to detox your body of all the junk (even though I thought before that I was eating pretty healthy...since I was eating pretty clean). My body still didn't like some of the things I was eating on my "clean eating" nutrition. Everybody is different and you need to figure out what your body likes and doesn't. 
*I have learned that I feel free without constantly dealing with Hypoglycemia symtoms and brain fog from eating processed foods and any kind of sugar. Sugar is in EVERYTHING and I have learned how much better my body feels without it!
*I have learned that when you start eating this way you no longer have cravings for sweets or junk food.  It didn't even phase me to be around them. But, when I start back up eating sweets I want more and more of them! :(
*I have learned more about good food to fuel my body and how great I can actually feel.  I didn't realize how horrible I actually felt before this. 

Wow...I feel like I learned a lot more that just can't be explained and that food does not control me.  Eating this way helps me feel more in control of my body.  My stomache was flatter, I had more confidence.  I lost 8 lbs and 1.5 inches on my waist and 1.5 on my hips.  Yay!!

I love Whole30! :)
