It’s official, my food life is now over. I have decided to do (the biggest commitment EVER) the Whole30 challenge, yes I am a good mixture of terrified and excited but I’m ready to take this on.
For those of you that don’t know what it is, like me until this evening, the Whole 30 programme is when you literally eat clean, like super clean. I’m talking meat, eggs, fruit, veg and nuts. That’s it. You’re not allowed any grains, not even the ‘healthy’ ones like quinoa, a massive love of mine, and no dairy or even fake dairy like soy. Nada. It’s black tea and coffee or coconut milk for the month for me. Oh and I almost forgot, no alcohol.. I don’t want to sound all hooked or anything but wine and cocktails? Who doesn’t love them.
I really wanted to try a really natural diet out, I’m not interested in weight loss, or anything else like that, I want to do it to be healthier in mind and body and hopefully it will change how I eat for the rest of my life! Which sounds so much more dramatic in writing than it did in my mind.
Basically the reason why I’m talking about all of this is that I thought, more of a support system to myself at the thought of not having a proper cup of tea/wine for a month, that I would post the ‘food journey’ on here! I know this is a fashion blog, but it’s also my blog so what the hell.
I need to plan out this diet because it’s commonly known that by jumping into one because you’re excited to start isn’t a good way to stick strong in it, you need to get mentally, and kitcheny, prepared for this so you are way more likely to stick through the whole 30 days. So hopefully I’ll try and post my shopping list and the ingredients I get, and a few recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, and then how I actually feel throughout it, aside from suicidal.
I hope there are others crazy enough to try this diet (borderline way of life) too!!
Please like and comment (for moral support) and follow in the drop-down menu to follow the food journey, however painful it may be.
