So in my last post I talked about how I was planning on easing back into eating the foods that I thoroughly enjoyed prior to starting the Whole30. Unfortunately for me that meant going to my parents house for a dinner party and eating a little bit of everything. And then regretting it.

Easing back into it

buds1 Easing back into it

When I first started the Whole30, I didn’t even think about how I would reintroduce the foods that I have spent so much time actively avoiding. Many people asked me what the FIRST thing I was going to eat after the Whole30 was over would be. Would it finally be that bagel? Maybe a big cup of coffee? Gosh, maybe even just a glass of wine? In reality I knew that I probably should look into a way to reintroduce these food groups slowly and see if any of them really through me off.

Thoughts on NEXT month

prettysunset Thoughts on NEXT month

Good morning!! I took a barre-esque class last night and during the whole thing I kept thinking about what my challenge for next month should be. I am happy to say that I am on day 20 of the Whole30. HOLY CRAP. Day 20! Where did the time go? I suppose it feels like the fastest month and the slowest month at the same time. Anyhow, back to my workout distractions…Continue Reading


tea Ch Ch Ch Changes

Happy Martin Luther King day! I am lucky enough to have today off and have spent it laying in bed for an amazing amount of time, leisurely eating breakfast and enjoying two cups of tea while plowing through my 250+ posts in my feedly. During the week I only have time to read a few during the day, so sitting down and clearing out some of this has been nice.

Anyway, lets talk about changes! A few things I have mentioned here before, but other things I catch myself chuckling at everyday.

The Weekender

quiche2.0 The Weekender

Hello hello! I hope you have had a great weekend. I have been busy this morning with food prep for the week and am excited to share a few of the recipes I plan on making. I made a play on this quiche and added sauteed kale. This recipe for sauteed kale is absolutely delicious.

My eats the weekend have been good! I always enjoy the extra time to cook and play around in the kitchen. This weekend has been busy with work parties, game nights and other tempting situations. I found that eating a substantial meal before headed to parties makes life much easier.

WHOLE30 DAYS 16 & 17 EATS -


Things that I have been enjoying:  Grocery shopping! I hadn’t gone all week because of the decent meal prep I did last weekend, so grocery shopping this weekend was a treat (most adult sentence you can find on the blog).

Things I miss: The ability to easily make a snack. I know that nuts and fruits are easy snacks, but sometimes I really crave toast or a few wheat thins.

How I have been feeling: I been feeling great! I ran another 3 miles on the treadmill on Saturday morning and am planning on headed out for a long puppy walk this afternoon with Chris’s parents.

Meal plans for the rest of the week: 

Slow cooker balsamic chicken for my lunches this week.

Pork chops with apples, spinach & bacon for dinner tonight w/ leftovers for easy meals.

I also plan on making hard boiled eggs for snacks.
