Summer is a time for hanging out with good friends and enjoying some delicious food. What’s more iconic than a summer BBQ or picnic? Not much! Summer is also a great time to focus on your health and work on building lasting lifestyle changes that will see you through the rest of the year.
One such lifestyle change that many are embracing is the Whole30 elimination diet. The basic premise of this unique food plan is to eliminate some of the most common irritants in our modern diets to help our body heal. Many find that even when they’re conscious eaters, they’re still left with depleted energy, stomach or skin issues, seasonal allergies, or chronic pain. And why is that?
The thought behind the Whole30 program is that common ingredients like sugar, grains, or dairy are causing the health concerns listed above, and so by removing all of these factors from your diet, you’ll be able to slowly reintroduce food groups back into your daily routine and find all of your trigger foods. In the end, you should be left with a complete list of foods that agree with you, and ones that cause you negative repercussions.
Thousands of people have found success when using the Whole30 diet to eliminate the food-related stress in their life. But make no mistake, sticking to your Whole30 plan can be hard even in the best of times, and in summer it can be downright challenging. But at True Story Foods, we’ve been hard at work making Whole30 compliant meats that will make your summer both delicious and Whole30-friendly.
