Whole30 Crazy Dreams

You’re almost halfway through your Whole30 and you’ve just woken up from one of those crazy Whole30 dreams. Was it real? Did I really eat that chocolate cake…all of it, with a mountain of whipped cream on it? Yep, those crazy dreams can feel SO REAL and we hear about it all the time. We’ve collected some of them for you (we don’t want you to feel alone if you’re dreaming too!).


“I dreamt I ate a bottle of pink cake sprinkles. Not the little bottles you find in the grocery aisles but the 2 pound bottles I had access to as a cake decorator. I ate it all. I was so devastated when i woke up. Feel free to use my whole name”. – Julie Allen (full name!)


“Not exactly on topic but I dreamed I DIDN’T ruin it because my husband was putting mustard on chocolate, so that was gross and not one bit tempting.” – Kat I.

“I had a dream that I was eating a chocolate chip cookie and after eating about half of it decided to look at the ingredient list and was shocked to find that my chocolate chip cookie had sugar and flour and non-compliant ingredients in it. I woke up feeling so sad until I remembered it was a dream.” – Larissa F.

“I kept dreaming that I ruined it by eating chips and salsa. The third time, I realized it was a dream, and didn’t freak out. I woke up, heard a crinkle in the bed next to me, rolled over… and there was a bag of chips! OMG! How did they even get in my house? Did I sleepwalk to get them? How did I get downstairs? Then I REALLY woke up. Inception, Whole 30 style!” – Kristen Y.

“I have been on a round since last Friday and have had a recurring dream about going out for Chinese food and eating a whole order of crab Rangoon’s and having to call Kelsey M. to tell her I had to restart my round.” – Annya M.

“I dreamt I was at a party and accidentally ate something that wasn’t compliant and started spitting it out in the sink. Everyone was staring at me, I was trying explain to them it wasn’t compliant.” – Amanda G.

“In my dream, my in-laws invited us over for a Whole30 dinner. My MIL served us a lovely salad with a hamburger in a lettuce wrap. I took a huge bite of the burger only to find she’d stuffed it with cheese. CHEESE.When I was like “WTF?”, she shrugged and said “Oh, it’s only a little dairy!” I woke up so angry at my poor, innocent mother-in-law!” – Jennifer N.

“I dreamt about being a hawk.” – Kelly L. (A compliant hawk, I wonder! – Jenny)

“I dreamed I ate apple pancakes with syrup and scrambled eggs with cheese for breakfast. Then was so mad at myself for blowing it! I was so relieved when I woke up!” – Pamela B.

“Eating a mouthful of Cap’n Crunch cereal and spitting it out horrified that I slipped up and ate a pancake and woke up completely beside myself thinking I had ruined it.” – Kelly L.

“I dreamed my friend handed me a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch with milk and whip cream on top and I ate it. And then thought, OMG, I’m doing Whole30, I can’t eat this! And woke up. This was my first night of my first round.” – Morgan S.

“I dreamt I was eating cupcake after cupcake, all while thinking ‘damn it now I have to start over, might as well have another!’ And just inhaling them. Then I woke up.” – Megan S.

“In my dream, I took a bite of a chocolate covered maraschino cherry (which I don’t like at all) and woke up very upset that I broke my Whole30 round with something that was SO not worth it! Also, I dreamed I took a bite of a moldy, crusty slice of white bread.” – Rebecca S.

“I had a dream where I was eating a bagel I found under the seat of my car. I didn’t know how old it was…just that is was a bagel from “Bagel World.” If you are from my area, you know how good those are. I was driving down the road, sneaking it in before I picked my daughter up from school. Then I realized, “wait! I can’t have bagels!!! I was on day 10! Now I have to start over!” It was so vivid!!! Reminded me of the sneaking cigarette dream when I quit!” – Phyllis S.

“I dreamed there was a zombie apocalypse and I was freaking out…because of my lack of access to compliant foods…” – Cathy T.

and, last but not least….

“I had a dream the other night that the new leather boots I was wearing were not Whole30 compliant and I had to start over again. Day 15. It’s fine. I’m fine. Everything is fine.” – Kate B.
