My next Whole30

Hello cupcakes!

I promised I would let you know when I set my next Whole30, so I decided to start after the fourth of July because I want to be able to enjoy as much of the food as I can (still cannot eat diary or gluten due to intolerance/allergy I'm not sure which). I will be starting my next Whole30 on July 6th and it will go until August 6th. I was going to wait a while to do another Whole30 because the approach is not a diet, rather a learning tool and the start of a healthier lifestyle. I realized I still have some food issues that need resolved. This time around I plan on giving up nut butters and nuts because I feel like I eat too much of them. 

Here are some quotes from the Whole30 blog that made me realize I need to break up with nuts for awhile so that I can have a healthy relationship with them.

"We also want to make sure you’re always feeling in control when you’re eating fruit—or any food, for that matter, even Whole30 fare."
"There are some Whole30 foods that are easier to overdo than others—almond or sunflower seed butters, roasted salted nuts, dried fruit (especially dates), frozen fruit (like grapes), dried-fruit-and-nut bars (like Larabars)… we encourage people to include these foods cautiously in their Whole30, as they are as salty/fatty/sweet as you can get while still adhering to the program guidelines."
 Dates: Yes
Dates are a great way to add that hint of sweetness to a sauce (like the Char Siu pork from Well Fed), or stuffed with almonds and wrapped in (compliant) bacon as a fancy-schmancy appetizer.
Tip: These little sugar bombs pack a big punch—they’re as close to candy as you can get on the Whole30. We recommend against using them as a “treat” to feed your sugar dragon.
Larabars: Read your labels, and use with caution
Most (but not all) varieties of Larabars are acceptable during your Whole30, so read your labels. (The Peanut Butter and Jelly bar is out for obvious reasons.)
Tip: We recommend using Larabars as emergency snacks, or fuel during endurance athletics. They’re as close to candy as you can get on the Whole30 (with dates as a binder), so don’t use them to satisfy sugar cravings. Your brain doesn’t know the difference between a Snickers bar and a Larabar!
After reading all of this I know I can and want to complete another Whole30 as soon as possible! I also like the challenge. After this coming up Whole30, I think my relationship with food will be more comfortable and healthier. 
Who wants to start their WHOLE30 journey with my on July 6th? I want to see how many comments I can get on this post... ask your family, friends, co-workers,etc. to try the Whole30 out with you and comment below! Pretty pretty please! I will post everyday and you can all catch up, get motivation, and cheer each other on!
