Our Whole30 Journey
Mike & I just finished our first round of the Whole30 (I say "1st round" because we'll probably do it at least once a year). I purposefully didn't post anything about the Whole30 until we completed it because I know that everyone has opinions and advise that they're oh-so-ready to hand out...even if it's unasked for. What is the Whole30? It's pretty simple in theory: it's giving up anything but whole foods for 30 days. It's a "short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, calm systemic inflammation and put an end to unhealthy cravings, habits and relationships with food." We ate a LOT of meat, veggies and fruit, NO grains, dairy or alcohol.
