As a part of my Whole30 reintro plan I added some gluten to my day on Wednesday.
Breakfast – Half a jalapeno bagel with butter. Two hard boiled eggs. Coffee.
Snack – Chocolate chip cookie. Just picture tastiness.
Dinner – Breakfast (veggie scramble with bacon) + a BEER!
In the paleo world gluten is generally regarded as the devil so I was nervous to reintroduce it and half expected I would keel over in a gluten induced coma the moment it passed my lips. What really happened? Surprisingly, I felt pretty good. My stomach felt a little funny after the bagel but I felt fine (if not better than normal) the rest of the day and even into Tuesday.
While I think this is good news, (I’m not as sensitive as I thought I might be!) it does not mean I’ll be stuffing my face with pasta and chowing down on breakfast croissants. I still believe there are so many other foods that are more complete and efficient at giving my body what it needs. As with most things, I think moderation is key but, can I just tell you…that beer was mighty good. 🙂
