Suppers Newsletter April, 2015

I survived and thrived! In January and February about 50 Suppers members joined a cleanse group. Jess and Karen led a Paleo-style cleanse using the Whole30® program. That means trying flesh with lots of vegetables, but no legumes and grains. People reported weight loss, reduced inflammation everywhere, better sleep, lower blood pressure, less cravings, less pain, and lots of good eating. We'll be leading reprises in the spring. You can join the mailing list and just watch if you aren't ready to try a cleanse yet. Contact Dor Mullen to join.

Cleansing can be a spiral-up proposition:
  • Step 1: Watch, learn to prepare a few dishes, and get them in your repertoire.
  • Step 2:  See how you feel, and develop a palate for the flavors.  
  • Step 3: Join in.  
  • Step 4: Do the whole thing if you choose to.
I did the strictest version of autoimmune Paleo low FODMAP nearly 100%, and I want company when I do it again in May.  

“We have decided that we will continue on this new healthful journey as we are both feeling so much better.” This member now has fasting blood sugar under 100, something that never happened until she did the cleanse. 

“In spite of some runny nose days, fatigue and irritability the first week of the AIP cleanse, I've come through to the other side, feeling well and 13 lbs less! Ohmmmm! I've loved the food and discovered lots of new recipes. But the best for me is learning new disciplines that will help me maintain a much healthier relationship to food.” 

“Truth be told I didn't feel deprived or even hungry, yet now I'm salivating for a simple piece of toast, rice, frozen kefir. I used to salivate for chocolate cake with mile-high frosting but I truly don't anymore. For me that's cause for celebration.”

Jess and Karen led about 30 Suppers members in a Paleo-style cleanse using the Whole30 program. Some watched, some jumped in body and soul.   

The Whole30 program is a 30-day elimination plan that follows a “squeaky clean” Paleo type diet. There is no fasting or juicing - just lots of really good whole foods. It's a pretty big commitment so I encourage you to take some time, do some reading, and make sure it is the right fit for you. Let me know if you decide to do it for sure and I'll add you to my group list.

Although reading the Whole30 companion book, It Starts With Food, is not necessary to do the program, I found it helpful to know the WHY behind all of the rules of this program. The book contains much more background information and guidance than is available on the website, and it may be a good place to start if you are more of a book person than an internet person. They carry it at the Princeton Public Library, as well as at major bookstores. 

For online resources, here is an intro to the Whole30 program:
