If you couldn’t tell by my post Lesson #2: Apples and Oranges, I love food. In particular I am extremely passionate about healthy food. In order to live the life you want and deserve, you have to be healthy. In November, Tasha and I will celebrate three years being vegan and gluten free. Though this has been a very beneficial way of eating for us, we wanted to challenge ourselves to break our dependence on beans and grains. So on September 15th, we embarked on our Whole30 journey. If you aren’t familiar with the program, it helps you to cut out foods that have negative effects on your body. We have successfully given up sugar, grains, legumes, and processed foods for over 30 days now. Though this program is a stricter version of the Paleo diet, it has been fun applying the principles to our vegan lifestyle.
