whole 30 tips and tricks Day 1 of our Whole 30 challenge begins now!

Are you ready? 

It was a beautiful Colorado weekend, so hey I get it if you didn’t quite get to the Whole30.com website, here’s the link to get you started.

After spending a few hours on Sunday, preparing I feel ready! I setup a special shelf in the cabinet for the kids. Sometimes they Whole 30 with me, sometimes they don’t. When they don’t, I put all non-compliant foods on their special shelf. It is a way for me to set a boundary, to say, “I don’t eat that.” or “Not mine.” 

After I got the pantry organized, I prepared and cooked as much of the food for the week as I could. It took just a few hours and the time passed quickly as Meg and I chatted and sipped coffee…well I sipped coffee, she read. I hadn’t done my grocery shopping before I started cooking so we had to do a quick grocery run for a few small things and THAT’S OK! It’s not all or nothing, this is lifelong change and that doesn’t happen overnight.

With little effort I have a few days of ready-to-eat salad fixings, vegetables, and meats in the fridge and am feeling prepared for the next few days. Keep it simple! Stick to the basics: Meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts & seeds. Checkout the website and books, and bring your sense of humor. Leave a comment here to share your experience or ask a question.

Can’t wait to hear all about it!
