Come Monday morning, I am beginning the Whole30 journey. I have dabbled in the Paleo diet this past year and have been feeling the need for a deep reset in my eating habits and approach to food. When life gets busy, I run to the quick, easy fixes like sugary lattes and buttered bagels, foregoing any true nutritional value. Then I wonder why I feel tired and cranky and overextended. Ha!
I am a little nervous, knowing that giving up sugar, grains, alcohol and dairy will render me a sad shell of myself for a few days (basically my perfect food day would be: creamy, sugary coffee for breakfast, a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch with a creamy soup, then pizza for dinner with a glass of wine) but I am hoping to change the way I view food and help me get back on track.
It’s going to be hard, but it’s going to be good.
Have you done the Whole30 before? Any words of wisdom or fantastic recipes I should check out?
Catch you on the flip side!
