How to Make Your Whole30 As Easy As Possible

I'm currently in the middle of my third Whole30. Each time, I've approached this challenge different ways. So far, this has by far been the easiest Whole30 I've done. If you're considering trying a Whole30, or are looking to make it easier this time around, here are some tips. ...more

Whole30 Meal Template

When talking to others on the Whole30 Journey, I hear the advice all the time that if we just eat compliant items, we will be fine. While only eating foods that are compliant is DEFINITELY a start, it's not the point of the Whole30. The idea is to totally nourish your body through the food you put in it; and to do that, we have to be feeding it full of nutrients and vitamins at every meal....more

30 Thoughts While on Whole30

WOOHOO!! Our family just completed our first Whole30 and I cannot be more excited for the progress we have made. Besides some great weight loss, we have had less digestive issues, better sleep, lower anxiety, better skin, the list goes on!

13 Whole30 Super Bowl Recipes

Hey y'all! Super Bowl 50 is upon us, and I have to tell you that I am SO excited! Not only am I a huge football fan in general, but Peyton Manning is one of my all time favorite celebrities. His career, philanthropy, and cheesy TV commercials have all been absolutely cherished by my family.

Whole30 Meals and Recipes- Sides/Snacks

YAY! My favorite part of any meal are the sides. Luckily for us, Whole30 sides are all REALLY tasty! These are the sides that will be part of our meal plan. I've also included a few snack ideas for those of you asking about snacks. The Whole30 program doesn't actually support the idea of snacking but I know that a lot of us are having a hard time with the thought of NO SNACKS at all for thirty days. Just be very mindful when you are eating and don't eat out of boredom but only when your body tells you that you are hungry!  ...more

Whole30 Meals and Recipes- Week 2

You guys, we're only a few days in and I'm feeling great! I will admit to a few headaches and a some irritability but I know that these will subside very quickly! I felt SO accomplished with all the prepping last Sunday and have really enjoyed not having to cook for an hour each night. With that in mind, for our Whole30 Meals Week 2,  I decided to focus on recipes that could be prepped ahead of time. If you don't like prepping as much as I do, you can cook most of these the day you are set to eat them!...more

Whole30 Meals and Recipes- Week 4

We are officially on the downhill slide of this Whole30 Challenge! I know that a lot of you have committed to Whole60s, Whole90s, and beyond and that is FANTASTIC. A lot of people that I've spoken with don't want all of the physical and mental benefits of this diet to wear off and I don't blame them! If you still aren't experiencing any of this Tiger Blood magic, hold on...it's still coming. Some bodies just take longer to process out all of the junk we've been storing up for years....more
