Peas are considered legumes!!!

I thought I was wrapping up my Day 4 last night when a fellow Whole30 community member reached out and informed me that the peas I ate for breakfast one morning are considered legumes. 😦  Legumes are a non-compliant to Whole30 so I now have to restart my 30 days. I knew better than to eat something that wasn’t on the list. Next time I am questioning everything before I prepare it for consumption (no matter how green and safe/healthy it looks).

IMG_2284I must say though this Whole30 journey isn’t as hard as I thought it might be.  Yes I feel limited to the foods I can eat but at the same time it’s liberating to not have to stress about what to eat next.  I’ve tried more recipes that I have had when I didn’t limit the kind of foods I ate at all.  My most favorite recipe attempt I’ve done is Coconut shrimp.  It was DELICIOUS.  I used this recipe: Primal Bites: Healthy Paleo Coconut Shrimp

    Interesting diet. I hadn’t heard about it until today and did some research on it. Good luck sticking with it! It certainly seems restrictive.

    Why would legumes be bad? :/ I couldn’t eat like that, but props to you. Those coconut shrimp look very tasty!

    Weird. I wouldn’t think peas would be considered unhealthy or anything like that. Especially if you didn’t put salt or butter on them like I’ve seen some people do. Anyway, I’m sorry you had to restart your whole diet all over again. I can see how that would be frustrating but don’t give up. I’m sure you can make it through the 30 days.
