So judge me or whatever but I've hopped on the clean train; I'm doing the Whole 30 challenge. I've been thinking about my eating habits for a while now. I knew I was eating too much processed food and not enough vegetables. I want to eat healthy. I want to be healthy. It doesn't matter that my metabolism lets me eat a cheez-its and diet coke and not result in obesity. It matters that I can give my body good sustenance and I should take control and do so.
So, while I could have just attempted to ease into it -- continue to eat some of the other foods and just incorporate more veggies into my diet -- I knew that, if given the option, I would eat all bread and salami and cheese instead. I decided to do the Whole 30 because it would force me to eat healthier. It would force me to find ways to put vegetables on my plate.
At this point I'm not sure I'll stick with the strict program after the 30 days. I mean, I really love cheese. But, I think this will kickstart a better relationship with food for me. We'll see!
p.s. If you've ever done paleo or Whole 30 I would love to get some recipe ideas! I made spaghetti squash with italian sausage and my own mayo so I could put it in tuna. It's kinda crazy how many things are in store bought items that you don't think about!
