I love to cook and since there has been so much interest in my food posts on Instagram I figure I’d start sharing them on my blog. So it’s Foodie Friday, January is done and February has begun. My Whole30 is finished and time to tackle a new 30-day challenge for myself. But before I do that I’d like to take the time to reflect on my experience with the Whole30 and share my result.
Overall I am very happy with how my Whole30 went. I’ve lost 8 pounds and two inches off my waist with doing nothing but changing my diet. I’m sleeping better and have tons more energy. I also super motivated to keep moving forward and continue on my health journey.
I take the Whole30 as a challenge, a goal, something to shoot for. It takes a little bit of willpower and a whole lot of planning. Luckily I like to cook and have most of my morning off so I can plan out what I’m going to eat that week. I also so lots of research before I undertake a challenge such as this. I have a ton of resources to pull from so it makes it easier to get recipes inspirations. Here are a list and link of some of my favorite recipes from my Whole30.
