This Sunday, I’m starting the Whole30 program!
The Whole30 program is to eat strict Paleo for 30 days. No sneaks or cheats. The plan allows for vegetables, fruits, nuts, eggs, meat, seafood, and seeds. The plan forbids grains, sugar, sweeteners, alcohol, legumes, dairy, and seed oils. It’s going to be tough!
The food you eat either makes you more healthy or less healthy. Those are your food options.
It’s hard to explain why I’m doing this, but it’s something that I really want to complete. Lately, I’ve lost touch with my day to day diet. I’ve been eating too much cheese, processed grains, and not nearly enough fresh fruit and vegetables. This isn’t the way I like to eat. I like to eat whole foods that make me feel good.
I’m hoping that this program will get me back on track. It will force me buy food that doesn’t come in a package, meal plan, and really enjoy food, rather than just eating it because it’s there.
I don’t plan on going Paleo for the rest of my life. Hell, I’ll probably have a yogurt on day 31! I guess we’ll see how I’m feeling after this challenge is over and decide what’s best for me.
My main goal for the challenge is to find what works best for ME.It will give me a clean slate to reintroduce foods one a time.
I know this is going to be tough, but I have no doubts that I won’t be able to do it. Hey, it might even be fun
I’m on the fence about blogging recaps throughout the challenge. Would anyone be interested? Do you want to see a daily post of meals, occasional recipes, or…?
Just let me know!
