Hello helloooo! How was your weekend?? Mine was super low-key, as they have been that way a lot recently- no complaints! I had class all day Saturday and Sunday, watched my friend’s dogs, and caught up with a girlfriend over wine and dessert.
This post is coming slightly out of left field, even though I may have mentioned it for a hot second on the blog, but I have officially started Whole30. I’d thought I’d share my desire to do Whole30 and what I’ve done to prep!
What is Whole30?
Well, instead of me diving into the details of it, here’s a link to what it’s all about! Pretty much, over the span of 30 days, you eat no processed, whole foods. It is a clear cut of sugar, wheat, legumes, and alcohol, allowing your body to heal, ween off of sugar, and feel better. This is the book I’ve been using to help prepare me.
Why am I doing it?
- Cut back on my sugar intake
- Get my digestion back on track
- I bloat easily, so I am seeing if Whole30 helps
- Just feel better overall
I definitely spent more than I would have liked (I’m looking at you, Whole Foods) but I figured I’d rather be over-prepared than not prepared enough thinking that could be a discouraging factor from succeeding in the Whole30 program.
Here are some meal/snacks I have planned for the upcoming weeks:
- Taco shrimp lettuce wraps
- Grass fed burgers
- Wild salmon
- Coconut flour
- Lara bars
- Almonds and cashews
- Kale, spinach, cruciferous crunch from TJs
- Plantain chips & guacamole
- Dried mango and apples
- Fruits/veggies- raspberries, oranges, apples, bananas, squash, mushrooms, pineapple, snap peas, tomatoes
I’m still doing research and recipe searching as I go, but I will definitely be documenting this on the blog. While I am looking forward to seeing how I feel after the 30 days, I cannot wait to be reunited with some of my favs: hummus, oatmeal, and red wine 🙂
Questions: Have you ever done Whole30? What are you prepping for this week? What did you do this weekend??
