WHOLE30: Refuel before the Holidays

My sister found a meme that said "How to have the perfect body while eating like a fat piece of shit!" This is sooo me. I'll be the first to say I'm a terrible eater, well snacker that is. I could go all day being "good" and then binge at night snacking and eating all that junk food I for some reason keep buying. So we decided, as well as my husband to jump start this Holiday season with the whole30 total health and food freedom plan. I've done this in the past, its not easy especially having two littles and being on the go, BUT we're giving it a whirl and we're hoping for the best. 

I wouldn't call it a diet rather a "reset" button (like they say in the book) to refresh your health, habits and your relationship with food. There are strict rules as to what you can and cannot eat, but in the end you should feel a whole lot healthier by eating "real" unprocessed food. The basic gist of it is you CAN eat meat, seafood, eggs, vegetables, fruit, and natural fats. You CANNOT consume sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, or dairy. 

I usually suck at this and I find myself giving into cravings right away, but I do wanna give this another try. I'm not perfect and I usually don't like to limit myself in what I eat because #yolo and everything in moderation. BUT I can do this. One thing I really took away from the book is how they say it's not hard. They go on to say beating cancer is hard, birthing a baby is hard, losing your parent is hard. DRINKING YOUR COFFEE BLACK IS. NOT. HARD. And thats something I need to just keep in the back of my mind when I really want to drive to starbucks and get that venti iced carmel machiato. But just think by the end of this you'll feel great, look great and be done just in time to eat all those Holiday goodies (wink wink)

I've created a 7 day meal plan Below, all recipes are from the whole30 book.
