Whole30 Paleo Coconut Curry Meatballs

Whole30 Paleo Coconut Curry Meatballs

One great thing about the Whole30 is the fact that it encourages you to try out new recipes.  I have to admit, before the Whole30 I RARELY ate beef (maybe a few times a year) and now I’ve already made 3 recipes using grass-fed, local ground beef.  I don’t think it’s great to incorporate red … Continue reading »

Your Brain On Exercise

I’m kind of in a workout rut… what shall I do? I’m getting kind of sick of my non-structured workouts at the gym.  I should try to go to classes at the gym more, but they always seem to be at such and inopportune time!  The latest classes on some days at 5:30 or 6, … Continue reading »

I Understand Nothing

Week one of the Whole30 is coming to an end!  So far it’s been going really well.  I won’t lie- I do still crave sweets every afternoon and I wish I could have oatmeal or yogurt for breakfast instead of eggs and veggies, but other than that it’s great!

How To Make Your Own Ghee

How To Make Your Own Ghee

Butter isn’t allowed on the Whole30, which is a total bummer because I love butter (who doesn’t?) Luckily, ghee is allowed and even recommended as a good fat to use during the Whole30. Ghee is clarified butter, or butter with the milk fat and proteins removed.  Ghee is easier to digest for people with dairy … Continue reading »

Whole30 Fail

Whole30 Fail

It only took me 2 days to mess up the Whole30.  I think I’m still good, but geez I keep forgetting things that aren’t allowed!! I started yesterday morning with a breakfast of spinach, zucchini, one egg, berries, and almond butter. Then I headed downtown for ophthalmology grand rounds.  Every Monday morning, there is a … Continue reading »
