Whole30 Challenge Day 19

Okay okay probably a little too much, but almond milk really is great. I found an easy way to make a banana dessert using bananas that are about to go bad. If you peel and cut the bananas into chunks and put them in a Ziploc bag in the freezer they’re supposed to last 1-2Continue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 19”

Whole30 Challenge Day 18

Going out to eat is a struggle on Whole30, but it got a little easier today. I brought a little ghee, some sugar free ketchup, and my own unsweetened almond milk. Yes, I was that person today, but it was well worth it. I was able to order what I really wanted for breakfast andContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 18”

Whole30 Challenge Day 17

Where do you go out for date night that’s Whole30 approved? No drinking, no fried food, no pizza, no desserts and no pasta? The struggle is real! While finding a place to eat out is already hard enough. Finding a place open late on a Saturday in a COVID world was another struggle. We foundContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 17”

Whole30 Challenge Day 16

I’m more of a vegetarian now than I’ve ever been. I’ve been a lacto ovo vegetarian now for about 16 years and my diet has never been so full of fruits and vegetables. Pastas, cheese, beans, soy products, peanut butter, and other dairy have always been a HUGE chunk of my daily diet. Now IContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 16”

Whole30 Challenge Day 15

It’s finally the halfway point and it’s time to start reaping the benefits of whole clean eating for weeks. Cutting out dairy and adding a ton of extra vitamins and minerals have done wonders on my hair and skin. While it is still no match for the irritating ‘mascne’ there’s hope for everything else. IContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 15”

Whole30 Challenge Day 14

Whole30 Confessional: I may or may not have eaten a few Lara bars last night. Okay not a few like 6. But at least they were minis right? I’m going to just blame the zoodles. I did set myself up for failure. I was so worried about making the fancy sauce and zoodles I reallyContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 14”

Whole30 Challenge Day 13

Still amped up with the excitement to try new recipes. I left cashews soak in water for the day and borrowed a food processor to try cashew Alfredo sauce. I found the recipe on “Stay fit Mom.”Recipe Cashew Alfredo (Whole30 Approved) 2 cups cashews Salt and pepper 2 teaspoons olive oil 1 tablespoon ghee 1.5-2Continue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 13”

Whole30 Challenge Day 12

As a mother and educator nothing quite compares to a Monday off. I was able to sleep in thanks to the hubby. It felt like Sunday all day. We relaxed from a long weekend of traveling and finished laundry. I took my son out shopping and to a new favorite coffee spot ‘Bon Bon’s.’ SleepContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 12”

Whole30 Challenge Day 11

Day 11 was a hard one. I can’t tell if the increase in appetite is from traveling, late bedtimes, extra walking/swimming, or because of an off schedule meal times. Everything sounded good to eat. There were home fries, Taco Bell, leftover pizza, cold beer, Frappuccinos, pop, and donuts. Everything looked and sounded so good. ItContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 11”
