If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have suspected that we were interested in Whole30... my food board (Bits of Deliciousness) has exploded with Whole30 recipes.
Stu is actually the one who came to me with the idea. He and I have agreed that we need to "do something". Neither one is thrilled with the mirror, photos or our clothing. I'm not totally sure where the idea for Whole30 came to Stu. But he mentioned it to me, and I started researching it.
Whole30 is a major overhaul and change of lifestyle. Check out their site for details. I definitely suggest ordering the book.
Before we even began officially, I read through most of the 30-DAY Guide to TOTAL HEALTH and FOOD FREEDOM book. It's chock-full of excellent information. If you are considering, not sure, wondering what it's all about, or going to take the plunge yourself, read this first!
My next step was to prepare. Mentally. Emotionally. And literally. I needed to clean out the fridge. I needed to plan out our meals. I needed a game plan.
I typed up a "menu" plan for our week. I have already made changes to it, but it helps me to see what we are going to eat. And more importantly, it helps me know what I need to prepare (like that brisket, which needs to thaw then sit in the crockpot all day). Also, we are not having chicken tonight... we've eaten chicken for lunch for a few days. I'm fairly sure Stu would bash his head into the table if I served chicken AGAIN.
My weekly meal plan menu hangs on our fridge. It's a good reminder for me. And it has helps me stick to it.
I'll be back with updates. As I am writing this, we are only a few days in. By the time this post is published, we will be one official week down. Check back (or subscribe) for updates on our progress and journey.
Not A Chef
I like to cook, but I am no chef. I don't have the vision to create masterpieces from scratch. I am excellent at following recipes and tweaking them to fit my pantry or family. And I have a great collection of recipes to share.
