January Whole30- Who’s In?

First of all, you may be asking yourself, “what is Whole30?”

The Whole30 a nutritional program designed s a short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you put an end to unhealthy cravings and habits, restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, and balance your immune system.

Certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) could be having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it. For 30 days, you will cut these foods from your diet and learn how the foods you have been eating might be affecting your hormones, gastrointestinal system, and your overall energy levels. But don’t worry, you don’t have to restrict your favorite foods forever…it’s only 30 days!

There are pros and cons to cutting out entire food categories from your diet, and it’s not for everyone. However, there are a large number of people who find themselves sensitive to foods that contain grains and dairy. One item that I strongly believe is important for EVERYONE to reduce or eliminate is ADDED SUGARS.

Added sugars are so detrimental to our entire body and we will all benefit from cutting the consumption of items containing added sugars (other than the obvious, think flavored yogurts, some energy/protein bars, cereals, coffee drinks, etc.)

Each week, I will be posting meal plans for this program, so feel free to jump on the bandwagon with me. At the end of the challenge, I will consolidate it into one large post, where you can reference the recipes from time-to-time. 

Let’s get started!
