Just when I thought things were going back to normal, I had to go and change things up again.
So after being gluten free for about 2 weeks, the skin on my face has cleared up, but not completely. There’s still a bit of redness that comes and goes and I want to know exactly what’s wrong. I didn’t do a proper re-introduction of foods after the Daniel Fast, so starting today I’m doing a round of Whole30.
Yes, after a week of being done with the Daniel Fast, I’m starting over with another new way of eating.
I’m going into a lot more details in a post on Wednesday; but I’m desperate to know exactly what’s wrong with me and if food is the culprit. I hope I have your support for the next 30 days! John and Allison won’t be participating fully, although most of the dinners I make will be Whole30-compliant for them. They can just add rice, pasta, cheese, etc. as they wish.
In preparation, I also went to Costco with my parents and used up some cash that wasn’t included in our grocery budget. I bought a few essentials, along with some yummy dairy (for everyone else). Man, I just love that place! A girl could go crazy in there.
