Whole30 Wrap-up Thoughts

Throughout the month of April, I compiled a mental list of foods I couldn’t wait to eat. It included: overnight oats avocado toast hot dogs these muffins pizza frozen yogurt + sprinkles + chocolate chips and all the peanut butter (!!!) Does that make me a bad Whole30 participant? Probably! But here’s the thing: I…

Spaghetti Meat Sauce with Squash #Whole30

I’ve done the unthinkable. I made spaghetti without Parmesan cheese… and I lived to tell you about it. I don’t know how to explain my Parmesan cheese obsession in any other way than this: Seriously! I’m still surprised I was able to stop eating it so easily. I’m definitely excited…

Spinach & Sausage Egg Frittata

Pancakes, waffles, eggs and bacon — yes please! Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day, and most of my favorite foods are included in that.

And, it’s forced me to try out-of-the-box recipes, like cauliflower “rice.”…

Copycat Cashew Cookie Larabar Bites

Whoever created the first granola bar is a genius. Side note: How bad is it that one of the few words I struggle spelling is genius? Eek! Anyway, granola bars are the epitome of convenient food: They don’t take up much space so you can store a constant supply in…

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna #Whole30

So I had my first dream about cupcakes last night since starting the Whole30 program. I’m seriously surprised it took an entire week for my sugar obsession to seep into my sleep! But enough about that, I’m trying not to dwell on it (aka drool on my keyboard). Ahem. Hello, delicious…

Simple Taco Salad + Homemade Salsa #Whole30

Happy Taco Tuesday! In my dream world, every day is Taco Tuesday. So we’re sticking to the theme, but this one is just a little bit healthier than our usual. Luckily, it wasn’t too difficult to make this dinner Whole30 approved. We already eat taco lettuce wraps more often than the traditional…
