Woke up and I’m still not having any major cravings. There are two things that I would like to have, but I know I can’t and I’m not going to crazy over it.
1. Something to drink other than water… Fruit Juice, Crystal Light, etc.
I decided to just add flavor in my water via limes, lemons and oranges. I even tried limes and cherries last night. Didn’t quite turn out, but I may try it again.
2. A smoothie of some sort, which I don’ t know why. Ha!
You would think a smoothie would be “Ok” if I used the right Whole30 ingredients (ie Almond Milk instead of Dairy Milk). But I did a little research, and this made the most sense to me:
"There are no Whole30 Smoothie recipes. Smoothies are discouraged, although they are not banned during a Whole30. There are multiple problems with smoothies. One is that liquid food digests quicker than whole foods, so a smoothie will not help your body feel full as long as whole foods. That leads to unnecessary hunger or eating more when you did not really need to be eating more. Second is that smoothies don’t fit the meal template of a serving of protein, a serving of fat, and a lot of veggies very well. Most smoothies are high in sugar because they include too much fruit and few smoothies include an adequate serving of protein (almond milk just does not measure up to a palm-size portion of roast beef). Third, smoothies are widely embraced as health food, but are not much more healthy than McDonald’s fries." (http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/11833-breakfast-smoothies/)
So, alas, I will step away from the blender.
All in all, I think I’m doing ok so far. Oh and I have started having the “dreams” of food I can’t have. I definitely dreamed last night that I got a coffee coolata from Dunkin’ and was ok with it in my dream. I was glad when I woke up and realized it was a dream and that I hadn’t sabotaged myself on the second day!
