After the holidays, most of us feel fresh motivation to get back on track with our eating habits. I know I do. I actually ate better than I usually do around the holidays, yet I still feel crappy, tired, and like I need To hit the reset button. So when I heard about a program to do just that on Instagram the other day, I knew it was just the thing I needed. Since I’m still breastfeeding, I have to be careful that I’m still getting enough nutrients so that I don’t diminish my milk supply, which this allows.
If you click the picture above, you’ll find all the information you need if you’re interested in cutting out processed food, grains, dairy, and sugar. I started late, but have been doing this for 2 days and already feel better. I even drank my coffee without cream this morning!
If you’re like me, reading the list of things you won’t be eating conjures up images of eating nothing but chicken breasts and salad for 30 days. And I for one will only stick to a boring diet like that for so long before I give up. Once you start browsing the meal plans of others who have done the Whole 30, you will see that this is not the case. We have eaten delicious meals these last two days, and I know I can keep this up.
Yesterday we had mini hamburger patties, sautéed garlic/lemon spinach, and cauliflower rice for dinner. Tonight it was marinated + baked pork chops, roasted carrots + cauliflower, and homemade sweet potato fries. We are definitely not feeling deprived!
My plan is to stick with this for 30 days and go from there to see what, if anything, I want to reintroduce into my diet. I plan on sharing some of the yummy recipes we discover with you along the way!
If you’re up for joining my family in the Whole 30, let me know! We can encourage each other along the way. Leave me a comment if you decide to give it a go!
