Yes, it’s that time of year again! Over the last two months or so I’ve let my food intake slip a bit (a lot) and it’s time to get back on the healthy eating track. I used to do one whole30 a year or so for a long time and it’s been forever since I last did one. I guess since Tom and I split up I haven’t done one in at least 4 years.
Technically the whole30 is an elimination diet. You eliminate all sorts of food for 30 days and eat only healthy food (vegetables, fruit, fish, meat, nuts, healthy oils and seeds) and you cut out all the – possibly – not so good food or food that triggers certain behavior. Like sugars, dairy, legumes, grains and processed foods. I’ve had varying levels of success doing the whole30. Sometimes I didn’t finish because I lacked motivation. And sometimes I did finish but was too enthusiastic with the use of nuts. Nuts are one of those foods that are actually a trigger for me, so I have to be careful not to go overboard with them.
Traditionally the whole30 has a January version that starts on January 2nd. I figured now is as good a time as ever to get back on the healthy living trail so I’m in for this month! I’ve already done my planning for the first week, ordered all the food online and am ready to go.
If you’re going to join me, here are some delicious whole30 recipes from my other site. I’ll be sure to post here at least once a week on the progress and might share some delicious recipes along the way too.
It’s only two more days to go until the end of the year and I am really looking forward to some kind of normal again! More to follow soon!
