Take the challenge: Eat your way to a better body
06 Oct 2015
How long have you been planning that detox for really? And how many times have you made the same excuse of ‘I’ll just start next week’? Suddenly, before you know it, you’ve inhaled more doughnuts than you thought possible (and created one around your waist), emptied the wine shelf and turned into a tired, bloated, cranky version of yourself. Don’t let the cycle of feeling terrible, eating junk and feeling even worse start again, because Wholesomeness is here for you (cue superhero music). No matter how busy you are, what dietary intolerances you have, or what end goal your striving for (hello bikini body!), these guys will help you feel and look better than you ever have before (ok, since you were 17 anyway). And you won’t have to lift a finger! Passionate about food and how it can lead to a healthier life, Wholesomeness don’t limit themselves to paleo, raw, sugar free or any other diets, they just create delicious, organic wholefood meals for a healthier lifestyle. They can tell you where every single ingredient in their kitchen comes from and how they got it, and will even deliver it to your door. And you thought eating clean was hard! Their 30 Day Reset Plan is specially designed for people who don’t know what ‘normal’ feels like anymore. The 30 day challenge eliminates toxins, helps to repair all the gut damage those sneaky espresso martinis have been doing, and leaves you feeling like you can take on the world (and the beach). You might even discover that those doughnut babies were actually an intolerance to gluten when you slowly reintroduce everything at the end! While eating nothing but fruits, vegetables, grass-fed organic meat, sustainable fish, and nuts for a month straight might sound terrifying, Wholesomeness’s menu won’t leave you feeling like you’re missing out. You’ll get three meals a day, plus snacks and cold pressed juices, and can tailor the plan to your dietary needs (#bulking). Meals include delicious eats like savoury mince with roasted root vegetables, pork and apple meatballs and raw cacao chia berry puddings, so you can rest assured it’s not all kale and quinoa! You’ll get them delivered three times a week, because with no preservatives or other nasties, this food is fresh as fresh can be! You won’t be left hanging with no idea how feed yourself once the month is up either. Book in for one of Wholesomeness’s cooking classes and learn how to put together a healthy (but budget friendly) meal plan that won’t take up every Sunday with meal prep. Their next classes are on October 14 and 28, and you get dinner included! If you’re intrigued but not quite ready to commit to a month without bread, feel free to drop by the Wholesomeness cafe in the Grange, where you can sample their delicious meals, smoothies and snacks any day of the week. Words by Moira Kennedy Keeping the G&G up to date with all the latest tasty tidbits requires a lot of double lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally need to give out some sponsored love. But rest assured that we only work with businesses that we think are really nifty, as the sponsor for this post is!
