My First Whole30

For those of you that have not heard of Whole30, here is a little background.  Whole30 is a 30 day program challenging you to eat only clean, whole foods to achieve total health.  The program’s basic guidelines are eat meat, seafood, eggs, vegetables, fruit, and natural fats.  So, the main things I had to cut out where dairy, sugar, legumes, alcohol and grains/pasta.   Whole30 has a book that I read prior to beginning my 30 days and it outlines every single detail about the program and why the rules are set the way they are.  There are tons of recipes in the book (and a separate cookbook) to help give you ideas and get you started with the program! This was amazingly helpful for me to stay committed to Whole30!! There is also sooo much awesome info on their website and lots of recipes and ideas on pinterest!!! Definitely check out the website if you think this is something you’re interested it.  Make sure to read everything before trying Whole30 to truly understand the why behind it all.
