Whole30 Soup Recipes You'll Want to Eat All Year Long
Whole 30 Soup Recipes
Removing all grains, dairy, legumes, and sugar for a month may seem extreme, but the Whole30 diet was developed by two nutritionists as a method of identifying food sensitivities (gluten, dairy, and soy are common allergies). Another aim for the Whole30 diet was to return you to return to a healthier eating track; removing sugar, alcohol, and high-carb foods from the diet and, in turn, fill you up on protein and vegetables. While it wasn't designed as a weight loss plan, many people find that a month of lower carbs and no sugar brings those results. (Related: I Lost Weight on the Whole30 Diet Without Cheating)
