Yesterday I was riding my own bike for the first time! So, what did I do? I kept my training wheels on for the most part. For dinner I had a Jimmy Johns Unwich with Turkey, tomato, cucumbers, guacamole, mayo and ....CHEESE! I figured I could make dairy my first reintroduction. Although, I didn't reintroduce it like the program suggests (eat it at all 3 meals and then see how it effects you for the next 2 days). I didn't notice any digestive effects, but I did have a brand new zit on my chin when I woke up this morning. Related? Maybe.
I also made these last night:

The only off-plan ingredients are raw honey and vanilla extract. These little gems have no added sugar (just the honey) and yet are delicious and sweet! I ate 3 of them and haven't had that usual sugar overload feeling that I normally have when I eat sweets. I consider these a "guilt-free treat". Key word being "treat". These were baked for a special occasion for a special person. These will not be a weekly (or even monthly) treat.
The only other thing I've changed since finishing my first Whole30 is that I eat breakfast later in the day now. I tried to be compliant the entire 30 days and eat my breakfast within 1-2 hours after I woke up, but it was a struggle to get food down that early. I feel so much better when I eat about 4 hours after I get up. I think I eat more (calories/fat...etc) this way too.
