Tomorrow marks the halfway point through the Whole30 Program. The program is going great and I’m really enjoying this way of eating. I can notice my clothes are starting to fit a lot better (I still have a long way to go in that department but I’m honestly on this program for more important reasons. Loosing weight is just a wonderful bonus!). I have more energy and I’m able to get a restful sleep. Another perk that just amazes me is that I have NO cravings. I’m not craving sweets, breads, and chips! It’s crazy to me because I have never felt this way before. I have NEVER been able to stop eating sugary foods. As for my Crohn’s Disease symptoms…they have all improved as well. The diarrhea is almost gone. I’d even say that everything is heading back to normal (knocks on wood).
Well here is a little run down of the meals I ate last week. I tried a bunch of new recipes and they were all delicious! Everything is full of such flavor and very satisfying.

I’m at little weary about this coming week. My husband and I are traveling on business. I guess I’m not to sure how the Whole30 Program will fit into eating out. I know there is a Whole Foods close to where we are staying. That might be my saving grace. I did pack lots of homemade Larabars and healthy snacks for emergencies. Fingers crossed the next week will be just GREAT!
