January Whole30 Recipe Round-Up and My Reintroduction Tips
As a new married woman, this was my first round of Whole30 in my own kitchen. I had so much fun breaking out all my registry gifts and putting them to good use. As I stressed in my first posts about the January Whole30, it is so important to keep variety in your menu to prevent food boredom and to keep you satisfied and motivated to keep you going. Here are a few of my favorite recipes from this round that I will be sure to keep into my rotation in life after Whole30.
My Favorites Recipes from the January Whole30
Now that the January Whole30 is over I am looking forward to revisiting my Food Freedom Forever book and taking the tools I have used over the last 30 days and using them to strengthen my food freedom=. Since my first Whole30 in March 2016 I have learned so much about nutrition and my own eating habits but I still feel like there is always room to grow and become stronger in. I will not being doing the traditional reintroduction program because I have already learned from previous Whole30’s how things like grains, dairy and legumes irritate my stomach and cause inflammation. I will use the “slow roll” approach and let cravings dictate when I will have off plan foods. I am looking forward to having some of my favorite Non-Whole30 paleo recreations like baked goods and buying some my favorite paleo projects like Siete chips, Mikey’s English Muffins and Cappello’s naked pizza crust. With this being said, I want to continue to practice determining hunger vs. craving and not taking compliant foods and using them as “foods-with-no-breaks” (nuts, nut butters, dried fruits). I am still striving for true Food Freedom and looking forward to sharing my journey here on A Paleo Pace of Life.
