Can you believe it's almost September?
Where did the summer go? If it was anything like mine it was full of family, friends and lots and lots of food. Between all the weddings, backyard cookouts, parties and other events I'm feeling a little off track.
That's why I'm starting another Whole30.
Every now and then it's nice to press pause and reset my nutrition. Not only does it help me detox my body from processed foods and sugars but it also helps me reprioritize my relationship with food. For me and a lot of Whole30-ers, September is a great time to dive back into a cleaner way of eating. School is back in session, schedules have slowed down, and life seems to settle back into a more normal pace.
My every day life is pretty consistent with a Whole30 lifestyle, but it's easy to slowly but surely re-introduce foods that, though delicious, don't always benefit my health or nutrition. The best way for me to figure out what foods have snuck back into my diet are to cut them out completely and start with a clean slate.
That's why, for the next 30 days, I'll be following the Whole30 program.
For those of you who have never participated in a Whole30, this means: no gluten, no dairy, no alcohol, no processed or refined sugar, no soy, no legumes, and no processed foods for the next 30 days.
Join me on a Whole30 journey!
Whether it's your first Whole30 or your 30th, it's always more fun to make a lifestyle change in the context of community. Having some accountability and resources has been so helpful for me on my Whole30 journey and I would love to invite you to join me on yours!
For the next 30 days I'll be blogging, posting on my Instagram story, doing some Q&A, and even hosting a few events throughout the process.
If anything, it's just 30 days. Who knows what could happen along the way?! Maybe you'll make some new friends, discover a new way of eating, reprogram your relationship with food, or try something new!
