Whole30 Challenge

2 Feb

Yesterday marked February 1st and I have an announcement for the month! Recently Swanson Vitamins has been rounding up individuals to do different health challenges. Previously, it was the 21 Day Sugar Detox (which I personally want to do at some point). This month however, Swanson is holding a Whole30 Challenge….and I was picked to take part! I knew that whole 30 was right up my alley and had heard great things about it. So right then and there, I agreed to do my very first Whole 30 challenge during the month of February!

Thankfully I won’t be all alone in my adventure. I’ve got Jenna from Swansons and Morganne right by my side..even my wonderful friend Meg decided to join us! Check out our stories and progress on the Swanson blog, HERE. It will be updated frequently.

Whole30 Is based off the bestseller book, It Starts with Food. Thanks to Swanson Vitamins, I have my copy and am happily making a dent in it. It’s a great read; one whose concepts I completely agree with. I keep talking about REAL FOOD, the importance of where your food comes from, eating as close to nature as possible, etc. That is what Whole30 is all about. As most of you know, I have been paleo for nearly a year now, so this isn’t too big of change from what I normally do. But I want to do this challenge to keep myself accountable and continue my healing journey.

If you read my blog or follow my instagram, you know I like to do paleo treats. Brownies, banana bread, pancakes…yep, I had all of those last week. :) I think these things can be great to a point, but there also comes a point when you can rely a bit too much on those sweets. I am hoping that by the end of the 30 days, I won’t be so reliant on those fun foods. Sugar is a real addiction folks. So I’m curious to see if I can break a habbit. I’m also even curious to see how my digestion will improve during this process. Digestion and gut health is the possibly the most important aspect of health so I’m all for taking on a challenge to amp up my own personal healing.

Again, check out our progress HERE on the Swansons blog! We will be doing a weekly check-in and I will of course be posting daily to my Instagram. :D

Happy February!!!

    Ahh good luck! I have been wanting to try out the whole 30 for awhile now but with my spring break coming up I knew I would want to be baking since I don’t have a kitchen at school and I will be home! Maybe I’ll try it out in March! Can’t wait to read your progress!

    Your meals look so tasty! I can’t wait to try some of them. And I completely agree about sugar being an addiction. It may not be as obvious as other addictions, but it’s just as important to combat. Sweets have always been a problem for me, so that was one of the big factors that drew me to this challenge.
    I’m excited to see how we all progress! Best of luck.
