Hello one and all! My name is Lori and I live in North Carolina. Today is day 5 of my husband and I doing Whole30. We WERE doing Paleo and doing a great job until *insert dramatic music* the holidays hit. We were doing Paleo for weight loss but are doing Whole30 for health. If weight loss comes with it...score!
I have read It Starts with Food and LOVED it! There are many dog eared pages, hand written notes & highlighted lines! It's wonderfully written! I'm also using Whole30 Day by Day. I'm a very visual person so that book is great for me.
For recipes I'm using a cookbook called Cook Once Eat All Week by Cassy Joy Garcia (but the recipes don't last a week LOL). The menus are inexpensive, adaptable for whatever diet you're on and easy to follow. I was using this cookbook when we were doing Paleo. We have yet to have a recipe that we don't all love.
Neither of us have had a slip up (no big deal, just day 5 HA) but I am SUPER tired of water, coffee & tea. We're sticking to no caffeine after 12:00pm which is leaving us with water for the remainder of the day (I REALLY miss having my glass of skim milk with my dinner *sniffle*). I don't like sparkling water so that takes out a huge alternative choices. I do drink fruit infused water but...I'm just tired of water. Does anyone have any suggestions?
