So…I’m kinda on a crazy “diet” again. In an effort to remind ourselves that eating healthier has amazing benefits, the hubby and I are embarking on another 30-day “reset” diet similar to the Whole30 diet. Last year the hubby and I followed Whole30 to a tee, eliminating all dairy, grains, alcohol, refined sugar, soy and legumes (click here for my previous posts), and afterwards I couldn’t believe how good I felt. At the time, I swore I’d keep on trying to cook cleaner, to eat fresher and to be better about my food choices.
Six months later, I can’t say that I’ve really abided by this promise. We rarely eat pasta anymore (before our first Whole30, we used to eat it every week), and I never stock white bread or serve it as a side with dinner. I’m also not like, mindlessly grabbing handfuls of grated cheese or mainlining chocolate chip cookies, but — well, let’s just say the holidays happened, and I also happen to really like chocolate and peppermint mixed together. You can probably infer the rest from there. The hubby and I made a pact: after the New Year, we needed to recalibrate our bodies and the choices we make about our food.
