Whole30 Wednesday / This too shall pass


 Who knew changing your life wouldn't be all sunshine, roses and ponies? Currently, firmly settled in Day 3 of the Whole30 challenge, I'm experiencing a willingness to eat copious amounts of dairy and sit on my backside doing nothing much more than aggressively drag paint across a canvas. What I will do, however, is get a grip and realise that this too shall pass! Oh how wise we become when sugar is no longer the happiness-generator.

So if you're keen to know why Day 3 is a killer, here are the Whole30 rules - you must agree to these ugly terms and conditions (with a silent nod to yourself) if you want to get to the promised sunshine and rainbows on day 30.

Why it's good for you:
  1. Whole30 strips all gut-disrupting, inflammatory, insulin-spiking, calorie-dense foods for a full 30 days.
  2. Allows your body to heal and recover from any foods provoking all the ugly stuff like bloating, allergies, inflammation, etc.
  3. Pushes the "reset" button on your metabolism
The rules:
  1. Do not consume added sugar of any kind, real or artificial
  2. Do not eat processed foods
  3. Do not drink alcohol
  4. Do not eat grains
  5. Do not eat legumes
  6. Do not eat dairy
  7. Do not eat white potatoes
  8. No “Paleo-fying” less-than-healthy recipes – no “Paleo” pancakes, “Paleo” pizza, “Paleo” fudge or “Paleo” ice cream      
 It's pretty simple, really. Have fun and let me know if you're giving it a bash! My pinterest board is loaded with meal ideas and blogs of inspiration.
