My Whole17

Back in April I did the Whole 30 and felt more amazing than I have felt in a long time - maybe ever.

I discovered a dairy & a soy intolerance that has helped me manage swelling and stiffness. It's been easier to keep my diet clean and it's made cooking fun.  I get to find new combinations for foods all the time!

I've decided to go ahead and do it again leading up to Michael's class reunion on the 24th of September. It will be a little different this time. Mainly in that I'm looking forward to it instead of dreading it.

I'm making some personal modifications.

The original Whole 30 eliminates:
  • Dairy
  • Soy (includes soy lecithin)
  • Grains (includes corn & quinoa)
  • Added sugar (includes honey, agave and pure maple syrup)
  • Legumes (includes peanuts, peanut butter, peas and chick peas)
  • Peanuts
  • Alcohol & Tobacco
  • MSG, carrageenan & sulfites

For my 17 I'll follow the guidelines above with the following exceptions:
  • natural peanut butter
  • Sun Warrior vegan protein [contains stevia & guar gum]
  • unsweetened chocolate almond milk [contains carrageenan]
So, here I go again! This time I'll share some of my favorite recipes with you as I go; even if you never go clean, it's easy to work it into at least one meal a day.
