Mistake #1: One of my favorite things is Manuka honey . I've eaten a tablespoon before bed for years now. I had just finished a jar of honey the night before, so I rinsed out the jar to put in the recycling and without thinking LICKED THE LID. Dumb.
Mistake #2: My nighttime ritual is a cup of sleepytime tea followed by sublingual melatonin. I had my usual cup of tea and popped in a melatonin tab. It took me about 20 seconds to figure out something was wrong... SWEET I TASTE SWEET. Sure enough, the melatonin I was using had sugar alcohols like sorbitol which are not Whole30 approved. I spat the pill out but those 2 mistakes were enough to make me start over today.
Yesterday I was SO OBSESSED with food. When driving around I would start salivating at the sight of restaurants I don't even like. I wanted pizza and wine. Lots and lots of wine. I almost caved and made a smoothie- SMOOTHIES ARE NOT WHOLE30 COMPLIANT- but instead I just had a bowl of berries with coconut milk and shredded coconut. A "roughie", if you will. It hit the spot.
What did I eat?

I made paleo egg muffins without the ham because I couldn't find ham or bacon without sugar in it :( This made them a lot less tasty. I smothered them with guacamole instead.
I finally figured out prosciutto is a (pricey) substitute for bacon but at least the ingredients are just pork and salt. I fried up some prosciutto and Brussels sprouts with coconut oil and garlic
