whole30 reintro: gluten


As a part of my Whole30 reintro plan I added some gluten to my day on Wednesday.

Meal Plan

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!


The Verdict

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. 🙂

  1. Good for you for taking the time to reintroduce things properly! I was pretty greedy and just stuffed my face lol. I’m trying to stay more strict and acknowledge how my body feels about different non compliant foods now!

      Thanks! I’ve definitely been doing some face stuffing myself – especially now that I’m close to the end! Come to me chocolate. 🙂 How is it going for you? I was a little surprised at what things worked/didn’t work for me.
