Whole30 hacks: “Chips” and Guacamole
It’s a new year! How many of you are hopping on the whole30 wagon to try to reset your entire life in 30 days? Well, it probably won’t work out quite that well, but it’s a great challenge! While I was on whole30, I spent a lot of time looking for whole30 hacks to get me through my cravings and moments of weakness. This is my favorite whole30 hack. Vegan & paleo friendly, too!
2017 is shaping up to be quite a year already. For quite a while now, I’ve suspected that food-related sensitivities have been the cause of some reactions I’ve been suffering from. Deciding that 2017 was my year, I took the entire month of January to test out an elimination diet, experimenting with removing sugar, grains, gluten, legumes, and so on from my diet.
I know!! This sounds crazy for someone who already eats a plant-based diet, but rest assured: it WASN’T ACTUALLY THAT HARD. Today is the last day (day 30!) of this pseudo-whole30 experiment, and starting tomorrow, I can start to reintroduce foods to see if I suffer any reactions.
With the Super Bowl coming up and all the temptations that come with it, I wanted to share one of my favorite hacks with you. The good news: it couldn’t be easier! The bad news: these are not chips and will never be chips. I’m sorry, but that’s just how it is.
Anyway, if you’re looking to make a healthy swap or for some whole30 hacks, try switching out your corn chips for lightly salted cucumber slices next time you whip up your favorite dip! This may help satisfy that crunchy/salty craving, and I personally find it a lot more filling than eating chips. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
See you guys next time!
