I’ve decided to change up my diet for a bit and start the Whole30 Program. When I told my husband I was going to start a program focusing on eating whole foods, he said, “So, does that mean you have to eat a whole apple in just one bite?” He’s so funny.
Not exactly, Rick. This program consists of cutting out certain foods that might be impacting your health in a negative way. You’re looking to eat minimally processed foods with few ingredients like vegetables, meat, fruit and nuts. You cut out grains, legumes, sugar, alcohol and dairy. You do this for 30 days to heal your body. Side effects can include: more energy, fewer aches and pains, weight loss, improved sleep, and feeling better overall.
Two of my coworkers and I are starting the program together April 2nd, the day after Easter Sunday. Kind of an odd time, but I anticipate a fairly quiet month, socially, so I think that will make it easier. I’m so excited to start and share my journey!

I’ve already started preparing for the week ahead with some freezer chicken marinades.
I’ll keep you posted on how things go after a full week, and I’ll share my meal plan with recipes.
