Back at the end of February, I decided to give myself a food detox and did a round of the Whole30! My eating was not so great in some ways and I really wanted to see if changing what I consumed would really help with regulating my hormones and thyroid. I wasn't sure how well I was going to do but I actually surprised myself and made it 30 days and then some! I'm taking a bit of a break right now...and by break I mean I'm using honey in my tea, ate a sandwich roll the other Friday, and had some pasta a couple weeks ago! For the most part I'm still sticking to a whole foods diet. No premade packaged foods, no diet soda or diet green tea, no baked goods, no sweets, no beans, no alcohol, no rice, no dairy and no artificial sweeteners. And yes, eating clean does regulate hormones! Added bonus, I lost 6 pounds without counting calories and I'm back down into a weight range I'm happier at! Plus my butt fits back into my smaller sized vintage clothes I haven't been able to wear in four years...just in time for Spring!
I've discovered the awesomeness that is cauliflower rice !
Eating lots of eggs! I look forward to having my own chickens again some day...Spring of 2016 would be my prediction!
My Whole30 experience was a very positive one for me! I definitely lost my craving to have sweets and carbs all the time. I also feel great. I never experienced "tiger blood" or "headaches" while doing the Whole30, so I'm not sure what those claims are about? But I do recommend giving it a go if you're looking to make some changes in the foods you're eating and how those foods make your body feel. I think you'll be kinda amazed at what you discover from doing this 30 day food project! I know I was and plan on doing another Whole30 again soon!
