Whole 30 Recipes to Make for Dinner
Think of Whole 30 as Paleo for pros. For one month, devotees cut out anything that might alter hormones, digestion, or inflammation, including all alcohol, added sugars, dairy products, grains, and legumes (whew!)—no cheating allowed, even with "clean" versions of treat foods like flour-free pancakes. Sounds tough, right? Honestly, it is, but you don't need to feel Deprived 30. These Whole 30 recipes from the blogosphere are proof.
