For those not yet indoctrinated, the Whole30 diet is a 30-day reset of your eating habits that focuses on vegetables, meat, fruit, nuts, and eggs, and excludes refined sugar, grains, certain other carbs (like potatoes and rice), dairy, and alcohol.Delicious Ways to TryIt’s not a diet in the sense of being a Weight Loss program (although you may lose weight) or a food lifestyle (like paleo) because it’s not meant to permanent. Instead it’s about taking a break from some foods you probably know you eat too much of, learning to enjoy some you know you should be eating more often, and bringing yourself back to a more balanced diet when you’re done. If you’re thinking of trying the Whole30, here are 20 delicious recipes to help get you to day 30.
