What is Whole30?
Whole30 is about getting back to basics! This way of eating is thought of as a nutritional reset, as you eat wholesome, unprocessed foods for 30 days. Leave behind sugars, sweeteners, legumes, grains, and dairy, but enjoy lean protein, veggies, fruits, fresh herbs, good fats, and more – we're talking about chicken burger bowls with bacon, hearty and creamy soups, and even Thai mussels!
People embrace this way of eating for 30 days for various reasons – be it for general well-being or as a reset of dietary habits, to improve energy levels, or to identify food sensitives.
