You may remember the last time I did the Whole30. It was such a wonderful way to reset my body that I have decided to give it another go. I have not been eating Paleo all holiday season long and my body is showing it. I’ve gained a lot of weight back, I’m sluggish, and frankly I’ve spent these last few months under a cloud of depression. I’m tired of being fat and sad. So I’ve committed myself back to the Paleo lifestyle, but I think I need the jump start that the whole30 gives me.
Why is the Whole30 different from Paleo?
It’s paleo based, but more restrictive. It’s focused on taking the dependance away from the sugar demons craving we face. On the Whole30 there are:

I will be sharing what I’m eating each week along with the next week’s meal plan on Mondays and I will be updating my weekly fitness journey on Fridays as well. I’m starting T25 tomorrow too.

Here is my Whole 30 Based Meal Plan:
Monday: Bolognese with Zoodles – Based off this awesome recipe from my Practical Paleo Cookbook. (I LOVE this cookbook!)
Tuesday: Chicken Sausage with broccoli and sweet potato fries
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Italian Pork Roast from Clothes Make The Girl.
Thursday: Salad with left over pork.
Friday: Beef Patties with roasted veggies
Sunday: Balsamic Chicken with garlic-y green beans.
(Just a note: I’m also egg free due to my baby’s allergies and I’m breastfeeding so I’m not particularly concerned about eating too many fruits, nuts, or root veggies as I want to make sure my milk supply does drop as I’m already dealing with supply issues.)
If you are interested in doing your own Whole30 I recommend picking up the book It Starts With Food. It’s only $9.99 and is a great read and really explains why you should consider a Whole30. Also check out www.whole9life.com.
