What's the Whole30 Diet? - Papa Vince

What's the Whole30 Diet?

This was originally designed as a 30 day clean eating reset whereby you cut out different food groups for 30 days and evaluate how you feel.  You can add some of the foods back in after day 30.

Many processed foods cause inflammation in our bodies which is thought to be the precursor to different diseases.  This diet emphasizes whole anti-inflammatory foods that heal instead of harm our health.

Did you know?  Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients called polyphenols. Just 1-2 tbsp of EVOO per day has significant anti-inflammatory benefits.  It makes sense to add EVOO to your diet at the same time as removing some of the causes of inflammation.  You should notice some significant health gains within 30 days.
