So, we did it.

Talk about a milestone.

Our family went out for lunch today for the first time in over two years (well, a family of 10 never went out to lunch much any way 😉 ….to a restaurant…an all-you-can-eat restaurant….that also included ice cream. 

It was Autumn’s pick:

 How does a former full-time keto kid(are we really in the former category?!) – a kid that had to measure every gram – sometimes to the tenth of a gram – of food she put in her mouth for every meal, go to a smorgasbord?

From a mother’s viewpoint?  With a mixture of excitement…and anxiousness. 

We have slowly been weaning off the diet since February of this year.  Over the last month we have not weighed or measured a thing. Autumn has primarily been eating “whole foods” with very limited sugar and gluten-free.

 Even today, she stayed pretty true to her “whole foods” diet (can’t say that for the rest of the family 😉

 but she did have a dish of ice cream…. with  a few sprinkles.

I am sure that I feel like every parent who has ever taken their child off the ketogenic diet –

nervous, but relieved; excited but cautious.

We are now transitioning to another way of eating – again one that is geared more towards whole foods.

We have been working on many more recipes that are also grain-free and sugar-free that I am hoping to get time to post in the near future.  We have learned so much and continue to learn more each day.  

You can’t have a day like today without being filled with gratitude and thanks to so many.  

“I give thanks to God  of every rememberance of all of you!”

To any of you who are reading this and just starting the diet…please be encouraged…little by little…gram by gram…keep pressing on!
