Considering being a Vegetarian?

It’s been over 15 years since I made the decision to become a vegetarian. This choice was made when I was very young (low middle school). For me the choice itself was simple. I didn’t really care for the taste of meat and my own morals/logical reasoning made the decision rather second nature. Overcoming aContinue reading “Considering being a Vegetarian?”

After a couple of rough days, it was great to feel good again. Lots of rest, eating at home, and not skipping meals is key to success when it comes to Whole30. Teaching definitely increases your appetite and exhaustion levels. Add trying to eat on a packed day of teaching and impromptu responsibilities is aContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 24”

Whole30 Challenge Day 23

After a terrible Day 22, I’m trying to keep it together this last week of Whole30. There’s many challenges to face up ahead. I’ve conquered birthday parties, vacation, and going out to dinner. Now we have a family get together “pizza party,” to trudge through. There’s baking cupcakes, brownies, adult beverages, and yes pizza. AndContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 23”

Whole30 Challenge Day 22

How is it even possible to have such a great day 21 and such a terrible day 22? This was by far the worst and hardest day to date. I blame myself. It was a stressful busy day and I felt behind on everything including eating, packing, or being prepared. I wanted to give up.Continue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 22”

Breakfast: banana, unsweetened almond milk and coffee Lunch: carrots and guacamole, Lara bar, cashews, small macadamia milk with espresso Dinner: small baked potato with salt, cooked broccoli and carrots, side salad with greens/carrots/tomatoes/hard boiled eggs/cabbage Snack: miniContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 21”

Whole30 Challenge Day 20

I thought it was just me, but I read recently something about Whole30 that made me feel a little better. There will be days where you aren’t very hungry and nothing sounds good and other days you’ll want to eat anything and everything and still be hungry. (I feel like this can happen when you’reContinue reading “Whole30 Challenge Day 20”

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”
