Welp, guys, I’m going to be that person talking about my “cleanse” for a while. I have primarily cooked paleo or Whole 30 compliant for the past few years, but I’m finally doing what I told myself I should be doing all along- committing to a real Whole 30! Instead of 30 days, though, I am doing it for all of Lent.
That’s it! Just eat lots of clean meats, veggies, and fruits. It’s meant to not only help you train your body to eat REAL foods, but also to repair your relationship with food. Eliminate the emotion from it and eat for sustenance and not to out of boredom, sadness, etc. For an in-depth explanation of Whole30, I highly recommend reading the book It Starts With Food and then pick up the Whole 30 cookbook– I live out of this thing!
Don’t get me wrong. I AM A FOODIE. I love food! But what makes me happy is cooking my own meals, or sharing one with a friend. Whole 30 teaches you to appreciate and enjoy the cleaner foods you feed yourself, and cut the addiction that we all have to sugar.
Here’s my Week 1 Diary, and just a heads up I get a tiny bit TMI:
Here’s my featured recipe of the week, from the Mediterranean Diet Cookbook.
Halibut with Roasted Vegetables
Refrigerates wonderfully for leftovers! 🙂
