The Stupid Easy Paleo Whole30

Leave A Comment

DSC_0225Every six months or so, I like to push my nutrition reset button and do a Whole30.

“Wait,” you may be asking, “what the *bleep* is this Whole30 thing that everyone’s talking about? How does it work?”

The Whole30, created by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig (aka The Whole9) is a 30-day elimination diet (man, I really hate that word) which is basically like squeaky clean Paleo: no added sugar in ANYthing; no grains, legumes or dairy; no alcohol; and no funky processed foods or preservatives. Their book, It Starts With Food, outlines everything in detail but here are the basics.

I like to think of it as an awareness tool more than just a period of food restriction. It’s an opportunity to:

  • heal the gut.
  • beat sugar cravings.
  • feel – I mean really get in touch with – how food affects you in both positive and negative ways.
  • regain a sane relationship with food that focuses on your body’s internal cues regarding hunger and satiety – without the obsession of calorie-counting or scale-watching.
  • know how good you can feel from eating nutritious, whole foods.

I’ve done three Whole30s over the past 2 years. From time to time I like to check in with myself regarding how good my nutrition really is, and now I’m doing a fourth. I’m starting on June 17, and I’d love for you to join me, whether you’re in the midst of a Whole30 right now or have been looking for a reason to start.

During that month, I’ll be posting some new recipes on my site that follow the Whole30 template. On FaceBook and other social media sties, I’ll also be linking to older recipes as well as posting up other fun bits of inspiration for you to use during your own Whole30. All my Whole30-friendly recipes (over 90 in all!) can be found by clicking here or using the Whole30 tab on the homepage menu.

I’ll be here to answer questions – I’ve been a Whole9 Envoy for over 18 months – and offer support if you need someone to talk that donut out of your hand.

The best part is that it’s all completely free. You have nothing to lose except low energy, sugar cravings (find out how I beat mine) and maybe even some nagging health complaints. If you aren’t ready quite yet, the Whole9 crew will be launching an official Whole30 on their site in August (date TBA).
