The holidays are upon us! This year even more than other years, I have felt a bit overwhelmed and “behind”. I haven’t had much down time lately and almost every weekend has been taken up with numerous activities (fun activities, but activities none the less).
Before I start, I wanted to thank everyone that read and commented on my last post! It seems like that is a post that resonated with quite a few people, and I am excited to write more on the topic.
My life has been incredibly hectic lately. My husband and I bought a house and we moved to a brand new town, and I started a new job at work. I also will have my final for my Nutritional Therapy Practitioner course coming up in June, and then I will finally graduate! It’s pretty bitter sweet for me. On the one hand, I will be happy to stop studying and finally be certified, but on the other hand, I have enjoyed this program so much that I will be sad for it to be over.
About two weeks ago I finished my first Whole30, and I wanted to give a recap of the program and some of the benefits you can experience while it’s still fresh in my mind.
To start, what exactly is the Whole30 and why should you be interested? The Whole30 is a 30 day program that focuses on real, nutrient dense, whole foods and eliminates a lot of the common “problem foods” for most people. It was developed by Melissa and Dallas Hartwig and you can find more information in their book: The Whole30: The 30 Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom or on their website: whole30.com
