Whole30 is changing our lives

In September of 2016, after a disturbing lab report from the doctor, I knew I needed to make changes if I wanted to be healthy and live. I embarked on my first Whole30 (learn more about Whole30 here) and it was truly eye opening. First, I stuck to it for…

Pineapple Chipotle Slaw

Pineapple-Chipotle Slaw

This past Sunday my family went to my parents home for lunch and we planned to bring lunch since we are in the beginnings of our Whole30 and are a little difficult to cook for.  I decided on bringing the Slow-Cooker Apple-Cider Pulled Pork based on the recipe from Whole30…

Why I deprive myself

Why I deprive myself

Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Today, in our Whole30 Journey, we are having Beef and Broccoli Stir-fry from the Whole30 Fast and Easy Cookbook. At time I wrote this, we were on Day2 of our January Whole30. I am tired and a bit grouchy, and I have a massive headache. You know, that whole detox…
