R1D2 Whole 30 – getting my vegetables in.

I struggle to eat my veggies every day. I have never really made them part of my daily diet routine.

But with Whole 30 one MUST eat their veggies. I think the next 29 days will be a time that really alters how I look and eat vegetables. Help me learn to implement them into my daily eating routine.

I don’t hate vegetables, I just never really LOVED them. Whole 30 will help me find a new love for them. I actually grew up eating lots of raw vegetables straight from my mother’s organic garden. So I do enjoy the taste of different raw vegetables. I can also appreciate how to store, freeze, and can vegetables too. As my mother did. She always had a garden and I am thankful I grew up with one in my life.

What are some of you favorite vegetables? Comment below.

Whole30 begins today R1D1…

doing-the-w30-IG

R1D1 of Whole30 begins today for me. I with my the advise of my wellness coach Connie T. have decided a grain free approach to eating is going to be best for me to really help eliminate my inflammation. Whole 30 is a wonderful eating plan to do this with. Besides all the other health benefits you get from this 30 day eating plan.

Think of it as a short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you put an end to unhealthy cravings and habits, restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, and balance your immune system.

Certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) could be having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it. Are your energy levels inconsistent or non-existent? Do you have aches and pains that can’t be explained by over-use or injury? Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter how hard you try? Do you have some sort of condition (like skin issues, digestive ailments, seasonal allergies or fertility issues) that medication hasn’t helped? These symptoms may be directly related to the foods you eat—even the “healthy” stuff. – Whole 30 Website

What does R1D1 mean?

  • Round 1 – Day 1

Take the new eating plan one day at a time. DO NOT focus on what your giving up, instead focus on what you will be achieving and feeling at the end of 30 days. The new healthful benefits you will gain are incredible. You will love the new way you feel. I know I will.

I encourage you to check out the Whole30 plan at their website.

Buy the book here.

What challenges do I personally face?

  • coffee, finding a compliant creamer for my coffee in the morning, I found NutPods at Amazon.com.
  • Eating vegetables is not a normal part of my diet, but I actually do enjoy them raw.
  • Eating eggs is not a normal part of my diet either, but I can eat one now and again.

I have been eating clean for two months now, this is just Kicking It In High Gear for me! Taking my new eating plan one day at a time. Focusing on how I am going to feel in 30 days, amazing! Giving up all the bad stuff in my diet that is effecting my overall health and well being.

Are you doing Whole30? Have you done it before? Got a website? Any comments, please leave one!

going grain free…

Grain Free

For the month of June, 2016 for 30 days I am going on a grain free diet. Why? Inflammation!

Yes, there are many grains out there that continue to cause inflammation in our bodies. To truly get down to the source of my inflammation I am going grain free, not just gluten free.

With the help of the lovely Connie T. @ connieville.com

And I am doing the Whole 30 program. On June 8th, 2016.

And I purchased the Whole 30 program book. Get your copy here.

I will update you along the way and especially at the end of the program, let you know how things go and what kind of challenges I faced. But most of all, how did I feel at the end of the 30 day cycle.
