Whole30: AKA 30 Days Of Torture For A Good Cause

Whole30 Meal Plan Review

I had several friends who had done (and some continue to live by) Whole30. Whole30 is a 30 day detox diet. It’s Paleo, but even more strict than your typical Paleo diet. It is supposed to reset your body to eliminate cravings and help figure out what your trigger foods are that may cause discomfort, bloating and even illness. You give up all non-naturally occurring sugars, all dairy, legumes, grains, alcohol and preservatives in food for 30 days. That first week or so is brutal though…

Gluten Free Diet Benefits for your Gut and your Mind

Gluten Free Diet Benefits for

Have you ever stopped to notice how you might feel after eating a piece of birthday cake? A sandwich? A bowl of pasta? Pizza? Most of us don’t always take our time to mindfully ingest our food, and to notice how we feel while we are consuming it and also after we are finished. I don’t know about you, but when it comes to eating a piece of birthday cake, a giant chocolate chip cookie, a few slices of pizza, or a bowl of pasta, I tend to feel rather heavy and lethargic. Sometimes I even find I need to stop whatever social situation I am in, instantly, and lay down to take a nap, only to wake up with a somewhat unsettled stomach. There have even been a few times when I discovered that my skin started to take on less clarity and more blemishes. But, first things first: what is gluten, anyway?
