My Whole30 Experience - Day Five


Woke up this morning feeling bright, energetic, and happy. I can honestly say that this diet is making me feel happier by dampening the usual all consuming depression and sadness (a road refuse to allow myself to go down).

I returned the almond/coconut milk that Tyler bought for me. The 3rd ingredient was corn sugar. I picked up some coconut/cashew milk with no added sugar. Plus, I bought cashews so I can make the porridge I have been waiting to try. 

I am drinking organic kombucha which technically has naturally occurring alcohol because it is fermented. However there are so many health benefits that I am allowing this small cheat.

  • 2 eggs hard boiled
  • banana
  • handful of almonds
  • apple
  • kombucha
