Whole 30 March

whole 30 march

Can you believe it’s March already??? WHERE IS 2016 GOING!

I’ve been pretty stressed lately (LOL, understatement) and my eating has been suffering as a result. Thankfully I actually exercise more when stressed, but still – a diet of 80% healthy, 220% chocolate is not good.

I’ve been following a low carb high fat diet for ages now and it’s something that just personally sits well with me – carbs make me seriously bloated, sluggish and trigger binges, which is why I’ve managed to stick to low carb for so long. Every time I overload on carbs I feel totally out of control with my eating and end up being bloated and in pain, tired and feeling pants.

I mentioned in my thirty before 30 bucketlist that I wanted to try the Whole 30 challenge, which is essentially a 30 day strict paleo diet which cuts out dairy, legumes, grains, anything processed, sugar etc… Sounds strict (cos it is) but I think it will help me get back into sync with my body after a few too many binges.

I’ll update y’all on how I get along at the end, along with some recipes that I’ve tried, but I thought this post could be a handy resource for anyone thinking of trying Whole 30 or paleo; below are links to information, recipes and shopping lists to help you get started!

I’ll be posting some of what I eat on Instagram so make sure you *cough* follow me *cough* – here.

So LOADS of delicious looking recipes to try (although the chances of me actually bothering when I can make simple but delicious meals are slim) that should definitely make me feel I’m not missing out!

I think the hardest part will be a) turning down a G&T at after work drinks b) being anal over ingredients when eating out c) choosing compliant snacks if out and about. Of course, if I do slip up it’s not the end of the world… It’s more of a learning process for me than a MUST ADHERE TO COMPLETELY thing. But if I manage the whole 30 days, that would be fabbbb ya know!

What are your thoughts on the paleo/ whole 30/ clean eating vibes out there at the moment?
