Hungry? Panera: Whole30 Style

Yeah, you heard me right. Panera: land of the turkey sandwich with more calories than a Big Mac. If you can stand to enter one of these establishments where you’ll see pastries and smell bread you can’t have before you even get through the second set of double doors, there are actually some really great options! Paleo and Whole30 Veterans will …

Whatever, I’m Getting Cheese Fries

i KiD, i KiD. Whole30 Day 12 and right on schedule with this godforsaken timeline. This thing is so on point, it scares me. All I want is a damn drive-thru (ah-ah don’t correct me, not through, THRU) cheeseburger. No, not a W30 burger with a fried egg of top and lots of toppings over lettuce with mustard vinaigrette. With …

Giada: We know she’s sexy … did you know she can be Paleo?!

I can’t wait for Woman Crush Wednesday. It’s too far away. I adore Giada De Laurentiis. She’s Italian (fist pump), beautiful, articulate, and can cook her cute little ass off. I’m pretty sure Everyday Italian was my first cookbook purchase. I bought it in college when I decided that maybe being domesticated and able to cook would land me a …

Don’t Let The Dressing Room Defeat You

This weekend started out great. I made a delicious Whole30 meal after Zumba Friday night, got a good amount of sleep, woke up early and hit the gym with Jeanie and John for Body Pump on Saturday, had a satisfying and compliant lunch out at a restaurant and headed home to get a jump on the rest of my day. …

SCiENCE EXPERiMENTS: Meatball Shop Meatballs … Whole30 Style

So I dragged my happy ass back to the gym for the first time in 2 weeks today. My Zumba instructor (whom I adore) gave me a little friendly shit for missing so many classes. I tried to come up with an excuse, and then grovel for forgiveness; in the end the only thing to do was give it everything …

Smart Shopping: Whole30 @ Costco!

I’m using my horoscope as an excuse to keep my butt on the couch this evening rather than going to Zumba. Yes, I read my horoscope daily, sue me. I’m a Cancer if you’re curious. If you weren’t – sorry. What has been seen cannot be unseen. Now is where we enter the Judgement Free Zone (JFZ). If we’re going …

Measuring Can Be Fun

… With the Right Tools! One of the things I hate most about eating paleo, but especially Whole30, is that you’re constantly cooking. I enjoy cooking. I do. I’ll even venture to say I’ve gotten pretty good at it over the last few years. I think we will all agree, however, that there are certainly times where ordering in sounds so …

Am I a Whole30 Groupie or Paleo?

So you have come to our page and are looking around a bit and ask yourself, “Why the hell is this thing using paleo in the title instead of Whole30? Clearly that’s all they’ve written about.” For the moment, you’re right. We’re focusing on the Whole30 challenges we finished up and the next round that starts today through the month of March …

“One Stomach Flu Away from My Goal Weight”

Well, no, not really. We’re gearing up for W30 Round 2 TOMORROW!! As I confessed in my last post, I had put on a few pounds after consuming carbs left and right post-W30. This week got me back down to my W30 end point via norovirus. I’m writing this a little tongue-in-cheek, partially because I have never had an excuse to …

Back to Life

… back to reality. I missed Throwback Thursday yesterday so take the video below as a combo TBT and Funky Friday addition to my post. Feel free to listen while reading or jam out afterward. You’re welcome. My horoscope said this morning that my “self-confidence is probably at an all-time low. You tend to be your own worst critic in …
