It is easy to get lost in your day-to-day routine and leave a nutritious diet on the back burner. This is often the cause of dullness, fatigue and feeling unfit. While maintaining a healthy diet can be a lot of time and work, especially when it comes to meal prep, there are programs that make eating right easier. Whole30, the popular diet program, has plenty of simple slow cooker recipes. Just start your slow cooker in the morning and come home to a healthy and balanced dinner.
What is Whole30?
Whole30 is a month-long cleanse aimed at replenishing your body with energy and health by eliminating certain food groups. You still eat real food, but you will avoid specific dietary culprits that may contribute to your sluggishness and lethargy. Some foods that are eliminated include:
- Added sugar or artificial sweeteners
- Dairy (Butter and ghee are okay)
- Carrageenan, MSG and sulfites
- Baked goods, junk foods and processed treats
Removing these foods from your diet and filling up healthier options such as fruits and vegetables is thought to allow your body to reset. Benefits of the Whole30 diet are said to 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. For more delicious recipes, check out Five Whole30 Slow Cooker Recipes!
