Whole30 and Your Gut Flora

Someone in your office is doing “Whole30” this January, and they’re likely telling everyone about it.

And if you haven’t heard anyone talking about it… then it might be you.

If you haven’t heard of it (and you weren’t listening while your coworker explained it), “Whole30” is a month-long exclusionary diet. For 30 days, you cut out soy, dairy, grains, alcohol, legumes, and added sugars. 

So… probably most of what your regular Western diet consists of. The idea is that after 30 days, a participant would slowly start to introduce food groups back into their diet, so that they can see which foods may have been secretly irritating them or causing discomfort. Sort of like the idea behind the FODMAP diet for those with bowel issues.

How to Rock Your Own World on Valentine’s Day

Although it’s been long debunked that Valentine’s Day is not, in fact, a candy-company holiday but a bona-fide romance-fest. There are many legends regarding why, perhaps the most common story featuring a priest named Valentine who would marry young couples in secret to save the men from going to war.

So by the 1700s, commercial cards were being sold for Valentine’s Day and everyone was encouraged to find a date, so that you’re not caught celebrating alone.

Quelle catastrophe.
