Whole30 is a great healthy eating plan that can help with weight loss, sleep, and skin and digestive issues. It’s essentially an elimination diet, which means it’s focused on what you eat as opposed to how much you eat. You eliminate grains, dairy, legumes, sugar, and alcohol for 30 days, and then reintroduce them one at a time. It sounds daunting, but it’s totally manageable if you plan ahead. One of the easiest tools for meal planning is a slow cooker. A slow cooker allows you to prepare a meal in the morning and come home to one fully cooked. That way, you’re not tempted to stop for takeout on your way home – you know you have a delicious, nutritious meal all ready for you. A slow cooker also allows you to cook in bulk.
