Whole30 Day 1! Migraine!

So, my head hurts.  Actually, I'm sitting in my darkened office with my AC turned down really low, and it's finally feeling a little better.  It's not like I even have a withdrawal headache.  Nope, this headache is a direct result of eating too much crap the last couple of days, plain and simple.  So I may still have a withdrawal headache to go through in a few days.

I'll tell you what, though.  This is awesome motivation for not eating grains and refined sugar in mass quantities any time soon.

Basically, I had a last hurrah last night and got some Ben and Jerry's.  This was after I had a Starbuck's scone for breakfast AND some pasta salad from the cafe next door for lunch.

(Side note: the pasta salad next door is AMAZING!  Pasta shells, olive oil, minced garlic, sundried tomatoes and fresh spinach.  So.  Good.  Really, the pasta is my least favorite part.  I should just get the rest of the ingredients and make my own sans pasta.)

Remember when I mentioned that I think wheat might be a migraine trigger for me?  I think that's been confirmed.

Basically, I kind of feel like an idiot.  Why do I do these things to myself?  I think I'm going to leave work a bit early after posting this and walk home.  It's a lovely day outside and I think the fresh air will help.

I'm sure you must have tried this, but have you thought of getting gluten-free noodles? They're really not that bad. (So, "really not that bad" makes it sound so blase...but what I mean to say is - I think you'd like them and if all the other ingredients are what you like - then I'd give them a try!). I am doing one healthy *test* a month (since April) and June is my gluten-free month. I lost 3.4 lbs in 3 days. Darn wheat! Why does food made with it have to taste so good?!

I think the comment above is a great idea. When I eat rice flour, soy flour, nut flours, buckwheat flour, chickpea flour, corn/corn meal flour all make great pasta if you have a one of your own. You can go to for general info and recipes. Also Dominoes now offers a gluten-free pizza fyi. Even if you just want to transition from gluten-free to Paleo it's better than having headaches. And I'm so glad you had fun with the fam. in FL. It's a great place to vacation and I haven't been back there since Mamaw sold there house so I guess Aunt Luanne is the hostess. :)
