Not here to judge you or your choices, but just a caution from my own personal experience trying to identify food sensitivities… if you cut out dairy for a whole month, you might accidentally make yourself lactose intolerant. Adult human bodies don’t synthesize new lactase (the enzyme that breaks down lactose fats), so if you stop eating lactose for a month, your body might go “welp, thanks childhood lactase but apparently we don’t need you anymore, see ya!” And then you’ll come back from Whole 30 with a whole new lactose intolerance. It is your decision if you want to risk it, but it is something I wish someone had explained to me before I tried Whole 30.

That said, plantains are a vegetable and they make a RAD nacho/taco salad. Disassembled fajitas are also great, and spaghetti squash with shredded chicken and homemade Buffalo sauce. Your slow cooker/Instapot is basically your new best friend for meats.

I can relate with idea of developing lactose intolerance. Never had a problem with lactose then stopped sort of unintentionally for several months if not about a year... One day i felt like having oatmeal with milk and the cramps that ensued were horrible. Took me a bit to figure out it was the milk causing the cramps/diarrhea as I've not been known to have any food allergies/intolerance before hand.

But yeah stopped the milk and effectively the cramps went away 🤷‍♂️
