I planned to temporarily give up dairy in August. Unfortunately I have a lot more of it in my fridge than I first thought. With September right around the corner, my dairy stores are pretty much gone. So it is a good time to start my monthly food challenges once more.
Which leads me to the Whole30.
I’ve thought about doing a Whole30 challenge, but the idea of giving up dairy just seemed more like madness. I mean, cheese is just too damn awesome. And butter! No one is taking my Kerrygold away.
But here I am, months later taking a hard look at dairy.
Since the Whole30 doesn’t allow dairy, I decided to give it a shot. Staying ketogenic is easy with the program. What really sold me on the idea is that I don’t have to give up my Kerrygold completely. I can turn it into clarified butter (which is allowed!).
And of course this means I get another health/cookbook book to read!
So today I’ll work on a Whole30 compliant menu and head out to the grocery store. The recipes I’ve spotted look really good. I just need to stay within my keto guidelines.
