A Whole30 Fraud

January 20, 2016

Okay, fraud might be a little harsh, but I feel guilty saying I’m doing the Whole30 for the month of January, when apparently, I am not actually doing the Whole30.

We had some friends over to watch the Chiefs game on Saturday night, and while I had complete control over the food I prepared and ate, I did have a few beers. Then, I spent a little time over the last few days with some girlfriends, and I did a really good job with my food choices, but I did end up drinking a couple of beers and a little wine.

I’ve changed my diet to so many whole foods, that I really don’t even feel guilty about having a few drinks, I just feel guilty saying I’m doing Whole30, when I’m actually not.

I shared my Turkey Sweet Potato Chili with some friends over the last few days, and it seemed to be a hit.



I made enough Breakfast Casserole for Mike and I to freeze some, and eat it for breakfast during the week.



l made these for myself Sunday morning, because I found these really narrow sweet potatoes that needed something cute created from them. That’s bacon crumbles on the top! Aren’t they cute?


Mike and I had a great time having friends over to watch the game, and I really enjoyed some girl time, and now it’s back to my daily routine.

    No, I think she thought you were super sport savvy!


  2. Oh too funny that I had the wrong team winning – gosh – and I felt SO smart too! But at least they had won something …. So she would’nt think me a complete idiot, right??! Lol

    You are funny! I loved your comment about dieting after your swim suit vacation. It sounds like you have been super busy, but it sounds like you are having some family time, and that’s good.

    I love the new plan! I am doing Whole30 as much as possible, but I think really what we are doing is the Paleo lifestyle. I need to do a blog about that. Basically whole foods focusing on meats, eggs, veggies, fruit, nuts and healthy oils with very little processed foods. I am counting points, and I feel very satisfied with what I am eating.

    Okay, glad we are all caught up!

    Have a great weekend!

    This comment had me cracking up. One….I love that you remembered sports info just from reading my blog…and Two…the parade was for the Royals, who won the World Series, and not for the Chiefs…..but the Chiefs were in the Play Offs this year, and that was pretty darned exciting too. The Chiefs did however lose last weekend and they are now done for the season. Sad face.

    Ahhh…Cheese and Crackers…..One of my favorite all time snacks!! That’s a tough one!

  6. Your doing great at a 80/20 food plan–it’s all in the name.
    I ate crackers and cheese for dinner the only problem is that’s the one thing I wanted to stop doing this January.
    It’s just so easy after working all day.

  7. I absolutely love the title this post! …I feel like my entire diet has been a fraud ever since Thanksgiving! We have vacation in Hawaii first of February and then when I get back, I VOW I AM going to get serious! Do you know of anyone else that goes on a diet AFTER their swim-suit wearing vacation and not before? Aargh! Life has just simply been too busy – with all our company and a new grandson arriving and helping our son move (yes, the excuses can go on and on!) But this brings up the opportunity to ask you something I’ve been dying to ask. What are your thoughts on that new WW plan? Or, are you more following the whole 30.? Just wondering how you feel it compares weight-loss wise to their old program.

  8. So, I had a patient this morning that was from Kansas City, so I asked her if she was a Chiefs fan and of course she was! I felt so intelligent because I knew they had just won something (i’m not a sports fan at all, but I knew they had just won something and that’s all I needed to say! ) thanks to reading your blog about the parade you attended!
