To say the Whole30 Diet is strict is an understatement. For a month, you'll be giving up grains, sugar, dairy, alcohol, and legumes. There's no workarounds either — if you think you can get away with making a Whole30-version of your favorite dessert, think again. There's no Paleo pizza or almond-flour pancakes to be had; just simple, whole foods enjoyed in their most natural states.
Even if 30 days isn't something you can commit to, it's worthwhile going Whole30 now and again. You'll be eliminating processed foods and focusing on a low-carb, high-protein diet (which is especially great if you're looking to lose weight). And with the right recipes, it's also damn tasty. If you're flirting with the idea of starting the Whole30 or just need to reset your eating habits, give this one-day meal plan a go. All the meals are easy to prepare and will keep you satisfied throughout the day.
