Dorothy’s Whole30: Days 4 & 5 Rewind

Alright, so things weren’t quite so dramatic in the “Kill All the Things” stage as the meme above may illustrate. I’m totally fine with that. Anyone who knows me will tell you they don’t need me any more quick to irritate than usual … hopefully they will say it with love. :) Breakfast and lunch weren’t anything to write home about: …

Whole30: Chicago Cravings

So maybe you’ve read in the last few posts I went to Chicago last weekend. Sorry, I’ll try to stop talking about it after this post, but it was my first time there – and I loved every second of it. I went up to meet the boy who was on a ten day business trip over the weekend. You’d …

Dorothy’s Whole30: Days 2 & 3 Rewind

First time visiting? Not super familiar with the Whole30 Timeline? Check this out, and know that it is right on point: WITNESS. Being groggy and grumpy and generally lacking energy, I don’t have a bunch of pretty pictures or witticisms for you in this post. I envy Jeanie and her decision to eat clean for a few days prior to …

Dorothy’s Whole30 Day 1 Rewind

If you got the Austin Powers reference, thanks for reading and being generally awesome. I am happy to report that Whole30 Day 1 went off without a hitch on my end. Having woken up a bit later than I wanted to (if you know me this will not shock and surprise you), I didn’t have time to whip up eggs …

Why Whole30 Didn’t Change My Life – And Why I’m Coming Back For More

Are you thinking, “Give it a rest already with the Whole30 attempts!”? Sorry, but we’re back on the bandwagon. While reading through past Whole30 Chronicles, you might think this is my “third” Whole30 this year … but it just doesn’t feel right to call it that. I did my first Whole30 before we started this little blog, and the thought behind PiP …

Quit Staring at My [Burger] Buns!

Happy 4th of July, everyone! Last night we decided we were craving the classic Fourth-Food: BURGERS. Of course the most paleo/Whole30 of ways to have a great burger is to put your organic, grass-fed meat on a “green bun” (lots of lettuce leaves) and load up on your favorite healthy fixings: tomato, onion, pickle, mushrooms, egg, mustard … whatever your little …

Step, Slide & Stomp Out of Your Comfort Zone – I Did

If you’ve read any of my posts or talked to me in the last 8 months, you probably know about my recent love affair with Zumba. I’ve become a total junkie, trying new instructors and gyms. I’ve become a total groupie, buying branded clothes and shoes. I’m dancing around the kitchen while I’m doing dishes and have a Zumba step …

Bonding over Bananas

While making my morning Monkey Salad (my favorite Whole30 breakfast of all time) in the kitchen at work a while back, a co-worker struck up conversation. Her eyes lit up at the banana/cashew/coconut combo, and I was more than happy to tell her a bit about what I was eating and why I was eating it. Then she dropped the …

*zzz* … five more minutes!

We’ll be ready soon, I swear. This whole coding and editing CSS thing isn’t coming as naturally as it used to – so sorry if the look isn’t what you were expecting after such a long hiatus. I figure, why deny you the privilege of new content just because I can’t get my aesthetic act together? I was honestly shocked …
