A simple reset.
It case you don’t yet know, the premise of the Whole30 program is to strip away any foods that might be harming your health – even if you don’t think they are. Sugar, grains, dairy and legumes can all cause inflammation, having a negative impact on the digestive system. Our bodies can benefit from a ‘reset’ by cutting them out completely for a while (or forever, depending on your body!).
But what do you eat in the meantime?
