Just in time for your Halloween prep, we are launching another Whole 30 challenge! This updated version will have many more recipes for you all to try, as well helpful daily feedback through this blog. Come back daily for new food and information to help you along during your challenge.
Challenge will run from October 1 – October 30, 2011
This challenge is designed to spur us on in our quest toward optimal health. Nutrition is the most significant component in attaining health and fitness goals. A nutrition strategy based on consuming whole foods with minimal processing – primarily vegetables, meat, fruit, nuts and seeds – will move you many steps forward in the direction of long term health and life long vitality.
Beginning October 1st, and continuing for the ensuing 29 days, we challenge you to eat only high quality, nutrient dense foods and to eliminate the following from your diet:
Post all questions, concerns, suggestions, or ideas directly to this blog.
Informal weekly meetings (Wednesdays at 7pm) at FIT will be held to discuss various food preparation question or other related concerns. Food items will be provided to give you an idea of different meal options. Each meeting will last roughly 45 minutes and any Whole 30 related question is on the table.
10/19: Post-workout Snacks
Most often when presented with the “what not to eat” list, we receive a resounding, “What can I eat?” Here is a brief list of some of the nutrient dense foods that will make up your diet.
green vegetables- are filling and loaded with nutrients
quality animal proteins – pastured eggs, chicken, pork; grassfed beef; sustainably caught seafood
fruit – no more than 2 servings/day, ideally berries
nuts and seeds – again, only a few servings/day. 1 serving is typically the amount that fit in the cupped palm of your hand
avocado and olives make excellent snacks
jerky made without sweeteners
