Whole30: The Wrap Up

Yesterday was our last day of the challenge, so we spent a little bit of time discussing the results.  I noticed a pretty immediate and dramatic improvement in my allergies, which I attribute to once again getting completely off of gluten.  Harrison didn’t notice many changes.  Having said that, the Whole30 protocol isn’t that different […]

Avocado Wasabi Deviled Eggs

Whole30: Day 9

My allergies continue to evaporate as I proceed into week two.  At this point in my life I have some incredibly powerful correlative evidence that, at best, wheat greatly exacerbates my allergies.  It’s remarkable how much difference a week has made.  Knowing this makes me wonder why I ever think it is o.k. to eat […]
