I only have about one more week until I have officially completed my first Whole 30. It feels like it's gone fairly quickly and I feel like I could eat like this on a continued basis, with some alterations. I haven't been nearly as hungry this week. I've snacked less, which is good because that's one of the things they stress about in the book: minimal snacking. I've landed into a routine of cooking the same meals over and over again, but I really don't mind. I've found a few that I really enjoy and I just keep going back to them.
I am now starting to research my reintroduction into the world of food once my 30 days is over. I haven't completely decided what I will bring in to my diet yet or not. I know that I will be way less strict at family get togethers or when we go out to eat. I want to still be able to enjoy my life with food. But, I also am realizing how certain foods make me feel and I don't know if I will reintroduce certain things back into my life.
Here is what I ate this past week. Some of these don't look very glorious, but I assure you, these meals were all delicious.

What I'm Learning This Week:
1. I have been having insane dreams lately and sleeping like a rock.
2. I'm snacking less, which is good.
3. I haven't been nearly as hungry as before. A lot of dinners are just kind of snack trays. It's probably so I don't have to cook something.
4. My spaghetti sauce creation is delicious but I'm pretty sick of it now.
5. I can't wait to go to COSTCO today and restock on a ton of stuff.
6. My allergies have been super bad but I think that's just how it goes for me.
7. I can't wait to weigh myself next week.8. I've been pinning a lot of recipes for moving forward on Pinterest.
