Sensitive Mommy: 1st Step in to Whole30
Me: Wanna Whole30® with me?
You: What is Whole30®?
Me: Keep Reading…
Step 1: What is Whole30®?
Here are some quotes straight from the Whole30® website- “Established by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig (of Whole9) in April 2009, the Whole30® is our original nutritional program designed to change your life in 30 days. Think of it as 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. Are your energy levels inconsistent or non-existent? Do you have aches and pains that can’t be explained by over-use or injury? Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter how hard you try? Do you have some sort of condition (like skin issues, digestive ailments, seasonal allergies or fertility issues) that medication hasn’t helped? These symptoms may be directly related to the foods you eat—even the “healthy” stuff.
So how do you know if (and how) these foods are affecting you? Strip them from your diet completely. Cut out all the psychologically unhealthy, hormone-unbalancing, gut-disrupting, inflammatory food groups for a full 30 days. Let your body heal and recover from whatever effects those foods may be causing. Push the “reset” button with your metabolism, systemic inflammation, and the downstream effects of the food choices you’ve been making. Learn once and for all how the foods you’ve been eating are actually affecting your day to day life, and your long term health.”
Me: Are you in?
You: What am I allowed to eat?
Me: I am glad you asked.
Eat- meat, poultry, egg, seed, nuts, fruit, veggies, healthy oils, food you can pronounce… Here is a link to a great graphics to use to help you on Whole30® website. Follow me on Pinterest or just my Whole30 Pinterest Board. This is a great way to see all the food you CAN eat!
