Ready, Set...Whole30!

I'm not one to cut out foods from my daily diet; I'm an equal opportunity eater. But with a month before work starts after the summer hiatus, I thought I'd dive into the Whole30 program. If you're new to the Whole30, it's a clean eating program to cut out foods that may cause you to feel icky. Then after 30 days, you slowly introduce the foods that were eliminated to see which ones cause a negative effect on your body.

I've been curious about the Whole30 for years, mainly because I've been suffering from awful sinus pressure/congestion issues for over a decade. Nothing has seemed to really fix the problem and I'm in discomfort most days. And if a certain type of food is the problem, I'm now at a point to face the hard truth (please let it not be anything I love too much).
The Whole30 program cuts out dairy, alcohol, refined sugar, grains and legumes. You might be thinking, is there no joy in eating after those are eliminated? Well, I'm about to find out...

THIRTY DAYS, I can do this. Then after that comes the reintroduction of food that will be the real eye-opening part of this journey: to find out which foods make me feel craptastic. 

So in the meantime, definitely no cupcakes! I'll probably be breaking the bank at Whole Foods but I'll also be cooking a lot and hopefully feel more energetic and rejuvenated.
