Happy New Year!
I'm back at it for 2016. I know, I know I keep saying every year is going to be the year that I get my self healthy but I just can't seem to stay on a consistent track. I do feel that the fact that I keep trying to start again is a good thing though.
I have Ulcerative Colitis and I have decided to give the Whole 30 a try in hopes that it will help me get into remission. In my research and reading other people's experiences it's helped them gain remission and has helped a myriad of other health issues as well.
If you have never heard of the Whole 30, it's a program designed to reset you. For 30 days you eat only Whole Real foods (veggies, fruits, meat), NO dairy, sugar, grains, alcohol. That's just my simplification of the program. For more info please see for yourself at www.whole30.com
Here we goooooo!
I am starting day 1 of 30 today, Friday January 8, 2016
2 eggs over well, cooked in olive oil with sauteed tomato and spinach, turmeric, pink himalayan salt and pepper.
1 tomato, half of a cucumber, 2 tablespoons of sunflower seeds, pink himalayan salt and pepper
2 baked chicken legs, sweet potato, broccoli, pink himalayan salt and pepper
Smoothie- Water, spinach, banana, strawberries
A few grapes
Why did I start on Friday? Well I wanted to start on Monday but didn't end up going food shopping until last night so that's why I'm starting on an unconventional start day. One of the rules of the program is you can't cheat AT ALL. If you do you have to RESTART the clock. So I got rid of the non compliant food in my house through out the week. My daughter is doing it with me (actually it was her idea) and my mom is going to try it too. I think we'll help keep each other on track. I'm going to try and post my meals every day, we'll see how that goes.
