Have you checked out Against All Grain yet? Our family isn’t exclusively gluten/grain free, but I really like giving ourselves a break from wheat here and there and books like these are generally very whole-food based which I love.

Some of it’s ingrained a bit into my personality because I love a bit of spontaneous and to live freely and see what the wind blows in. But really digging in and learning to be more consistent and creating solid daily habits is absolutely crucial to our success in life.
