What Is Whole30?
I’m sure you’ve heard about Whole30, or read it somewhere online. But, if you’re still not sure what it is or why people do it – here’s a quick run down. Whole30 is a program that helps you find the ingredients that trigger your body in a negative way, whether it be inflammatory or autoimmune related.
All you need to do is stay away from grains, legumes (lentils, beans, etc.) soy, dairy, added sugars, and processed foods. Oh, and no alcohol either for 30 days. Then you can slowly reintroduce each food back into your diet week by week to identify any side effects.
So when it comes to breakfast, it might seem a little intimidating given that chia pudding and paleo pancakes have been go-to recipes. But don’t worry. I’m going to show you just how easy it is to switch up your breakfast routine with the recipes below. They’re veggie-packed, nutrient dense, and just might convince you that Whole30 is much easier than you realize.
