Kelly and I set a March 20 start date for the Whole30, but work and life got in the way. Actually, the biggest thing getting in the way is a meal plan that both of us can work with. Kelly likes a quick morning shake, which is discouraged on the Whole30 plan. And I like... Continue Reading →
This is frustrating because I really want to succeed on the Whole30. But so far in this week of trying to eat close to the Whole30 plan, I'm already tired of eating eggs.

I want to have everything in place (food, recipes, etc.) before I start day 1 because I plan to succeed... Continue Reading →
