The Whole30 Rule You Aren’t Taking Seriously

Hi there!! As some may know, I have recently become a Whole30 Certified Coach. Which means, I know the rules vs recommendations of Whole30 very, very well. In a nutshell, rules are in fact, rules. They are rules you must follow in order to do […]

Buffalo Tahini Caluiflower

This is it! The time has come! I am finally giving you the most addictive and easiest recipe for a snack, side dish, appetizer you could imagine. I actually feel like I’m cheating calling this a recipe because it is too simple to be called such a thing. I threw it together, then Instagrammed myself eating it all the time (@graceful_cooking), and then tons of you asked for a recipe so I made one! Amazing how that works out.

Helloooooo everyone! My sister pointed out how very absent I have been from here and for that I sincerely apologize. As it turns out it’s very hard to plan and create content while also working what I would describe as a pretty stressful job from […]

Trader Joe’s Whole30 Guide

Hello world! I am getting so many requests for grocery guides and I love it!!! Y’all know I’m one of those weirdos who loves going to the grocery store, so the fact that you are giving me all the more reasons to go makes me […]

Aldi Guide for Whole30

Raise your hand if you have felt like an inferior Whole30er at any point because you can’t afford to drop a couple hundred bucks in Whole Foods every week? **HAND RAISED OVER HERE**

Don’t get me wrong, Whole Foods offers some really great products that you can’t get other places, but most of us aren’t looking hard enough at our regular ol grocery stores like Aldi and Walmart. Today, I went to Aldi and was the weird girl taking pictures of everything all for you my friends!! The trick with a store Aldi is that you always, always have to check ingredients (although you really should do that anywhere). Because Aldi is a discounted store, they often partner with different brands whose formulas may vary, so you can’t just mindlessly grab and go. I think this is fun because there are always different products to try!

January Whole30 Prep

You, my little Instagram followers, are funny. I did a few polls the other night to gauge y’alls interest in Whole30. The vast majority of you said you do not want to participate in a January Whole30, but the vast majority of y’all also said you wanted me to do a post on how to prep for Whole30. My intuition tells me that means that a lot of you actually do have interest in participating but YOU SCARED. And that’s completely ok, because before I became a Whole30 veteran, I was too.

My Diary

Post ID:

Recently I kind of out of the blue asked JTW “HEY would it bother you if I went on a little mini vacation without you?” Of course, he was very taken aback and immediately thought I was mad at him. This is probably a weird question to ask your husband, so let me give a little back story. By the way, I’m not talking a crazy, once in a lifetime type trip. I’m talking like a quick little mountain get away (specifically I was thinking about Asheville at the time).
