While nothing gives me great pleasure like a celebration, if you’re anything like me, I like to eat clean during the week and save my pizza parties for the weekends. This cauliflower pizza crust recipe, however, is totally Tuesday appropriate.
My Whole30 is officially wholly complete! I can’t believe I did it, and aside from just a couple beers he had, Jody did it, too! The Whole30 is exactly what it sounds like – a 30-day nutritional program in which you eat nothing but whole foods in the hopes you’ll balance your hormones, reduce inflammation, and reset your relationship with foods. In this post, I’ll list the foods I eliminated, the foods I enjoyed, the benefits I got out of the Whole30, the things I didn’t like about the Whole30, and what this experience has taught me.
Despite the cold temperatures throughout much of the States at this time, you can still get your hands on a lot of wonderful and fresh fruit, like pears, passion fruit, citrus fruit, and one of our favorites, pineapple. An easy and delicious breakfast or a pre- or post- workout snack, this sweet and salty bento will pick you up like a ray of sunshine and offer you almost 10 grams of protein to help keep you energized throughout the day.
One of the most important things I’ve learned about eating healthy consistently is always be prepared. Hunger can create a feeling of urgency, and reaching for the easiest and most accessible snack can sabotage a day’s healthy eating (or your whole month if you’re on Whole30). These no-bake bites have saved us in the last couple weeks in between meals, after a workout, or just when we’re craving something sweet but still want to keep it clean.
Cashews, almonds, and veggies have gone a long way for snacks, but as someone who really does love vegetables, raw veggies can get a bit dull after awhile. These roasted carrots are hearty – a perfect in-between meal snack with a couple hard boiled eggs or as a side dish with lunch or dinner.
It’s been exactly one week since I began the Whole30 and so far, I’m feeling pretty good! A few folks have been asking me about what I’ve been eating on the Whole30 since I don’t eat meat, so we’ve created this graphic shopping list to offer some insight on what you can eat and shop for as a pescetarian following the Whole30 program.
