Whole30 {60}: Halfway Results

The results are in!! I have to say I was skeptical on whether I would see the same results from this as I did the first time, and although they are slightly lower, it’s splitting hairs, and the good news is that I am losing inches in areas that are a health concern for me, so … Continue reading

Almond Milk Recipe

My coworker NaTesha brought some in during the first week of the Whole30 and since then I have wanted to try this recipe. The fates aligned this week and I was able to make this with Hayley. This recipe is relatively easy–just make sure you soak the almonds in advance. I soaked mine for a … Continue reading

Whole 30 {60} Week 3

This week has been interesting. I have struggled with chocolate cravings, been to a birthday party filled with temptation and been crazy hungry, even after I have eaten. Going into week three is difficult. It’s not just that you get tired of the food, it’s also that you start to emotionally miss the foods you … Continue reading

Making a Difference

I starting eating well to take care of myself. When I started the Whole30 in January it was to get myself off sugar and see if there were other issues I was having with food and didn’t realize. You know, like legumes, which just happen to make me break out all over my body. Good … Continue reading

Whole30 {60} Week 2

Last week was a good week. I had a plan for food and it all went well! I noticed this week that I have stopped thinking about my Starbucks coffee, which is a good thing. By Friday though I was finding my cravings for chocolate coming back. ANNOYING. Especially considering this was the time when … Continue reading

Celebrity Status

Had an interesting time last night at Longhorn Steakhouse–a place my husband and I love and is whole30 compliant when I order the right things, with specific rules. Well! My specifications have made me a mini celebrity within this restaurant. When the waitress came over to take our order I went first and apologized to her … Continue reading

Weekend Madness

First off, if you haven’t seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier yet, go see it! I might have written a review about it located here. It was awesome. This weekend I think I got a taste of Tiger Blood. I woke up ready to take on the day both Saturday and Sunday. Here is what … Continue reading

Whole30 The Sequel – Week 1

This Whole30 the second time around is much better mentally. It’s not comparable from the first time. I have been making most of my meals the Whole30 way since my first go around, so now I am using the second time as an excuse to try new recipes. This week I went with my old … Continue reading

Fascinating Findings

This morning I woke up and did something I was dreading—I measured myself. After 2 weeks of sugar craziness, I was worried about how much I had increased in size {my pants were fitting a wee bit more snug}. I am happy to report that I only went up 2.5 inches overall. My chest and … Continue reading

Crockpot Pulled Pork Chili

I went looking for a new recipe on the weekend because I needed something different. Thanks to PaleOMG, I found a delightful recipe, that I modified slightly, as I dislike avocados. It’s who I am, ok??? Avocado’s are slimy and gross. I gag on them. It’s never going to change. Ingredients: 2 pound pork roast … Continue reading
