3 Must Haves for a Fabulous Whole 30

Whole 30 Must Haves

Have you thought about doing a Whole 30? If you are anything like, well, most people, you are probably thinking that there is no possible way you can make it through! I remember thinking, “How can I ever live without cheese?” and don’t even get me started with my thoughts about chocolate!

Honestly, I was scared that I wasn’t going to succeed. Ya know what? There were some really tough days.

I solved my need for a break from water and found quick snacks for those special on-the-go occasions. Here are 3 Whole 30 compliant foods for, not just surviving, but absolutely loving your Whole 30!

At first, I was excited about you. But then you made me feel terrible. I wanted to cheat on you at times and eat chocolate and cheese. But I knew, deep down, that you were the best thing for me. So, I trusted you and followed you. Even on days that I didn’t enjoy what we were eating or struggled to find compliant food on our road trip, I persevered. Read more

Taking Control of my Health with Whole 30

Whole 30 - Sweetly Tattered

Yesterday, I told you all about my very physical experience with dealing with stress. In a nut shell, I have been gaining weight, dealing with headaches, severely breaking out on my face and neck, feeling stomach pains after eating, and experiencing crazy low energy.
