Welp, the holidays are over and family vacations are over which means eating poorly is also over! In the past year multiple close friends got married, which means they ALL went on the Whole30 diet. Sadly, I was either in production on a film, traveling, or AT one of the weddings – and didn’t have 30 days in one city – so could never do it.
If you haven’t heard of the Whole30 before – it is essentially a 30 day reset for your body. You aren’t allowed to eat sugar, dairy, wheat, or any processed foods. The idea is to eat whole. Everyone that has done it sings its praises. Better sleep, weight loss, cravings curbed, more energy, and so many more great things. As a wine lover, bread maker, baker, and cheese addict – the idea of giving it all up for 30 days was slightly terrifying, but equally exciting.
I HIGHLY recommend purchasing the book if you are thinking about starting the diet. It has everything you need to know, as well as recipes, support, and encouragement. It is also pretty cheap for a life changing book!
Daniel and I got back from Florida last Monday, spent Tuesday prepping the house/shopping and officially started our 30 day sugar-free, dairy-free, wheat-free journey on Wednesday! One of the biggest challenges for me will be new recipes. I LOVE to cook, but have the palette of a 5 year old sometimes. I don’t love veggies, I don’t love when my foods touch, and I could eat meat/cheese/bread combos for every meal if I could. I will update with recipes I loved (and maybe some I didn’t) along the way.
Do you have any you LOVED? Especially some that us picky eaters can manage? If so, I would LOVE to hear it!
