Thoughts on my Whole30

Edible
Edible – I’m glad it’s over.  I think it is good to shake up the way you eat from time to time, but for me having been Paleo for a long time, I seem to do a lot better on Paleo with dairy and wine than on the stricter Paleo path.  I gain weight if I replace heavy cream with coconut cream, mostly due to the carbs, and no doubt the calories.  (To get the right milky balance in my coffee, I need a lot more coconut cream than I do heavy cream…)I’ve tried to switch to just plain tea, but it just doesn’t … Read more
