What Is Whole30?
The Whole30 Challenge asks you to eliminate common foods during a month-long detox that will help cleanse your palette to break your addiction to sweeteners and other unhealthy foods. Foods to eliminate include the following:
- Added sugar or artificial sweeteners
- Carrageenan, MSG or sulfites
Eliminating processed foods allows your body to reset, and it makes room in your diet for all the healthful fruits and vegetables you should be eating. Benefits of the Whole30 diet include improved energy, better sleep, clearer skin, lower blood sugar and improved digestive health.
Best of all, your slow cooker makes it easy to plan Whole30-approved meals ahead of time. Get started with these delicious recipes today:
