Dirty 30 8/21 Start

Recommended Posts

Day 30!! Congrats everyone!! Well done. 


I have one more IOD that I wanted to post and that is - WHOLE 30 HOLIDAY RECIPES!!!


Tis the season and there's no reason not to keep up the great work you've begun in the past 30-60-90 days - over the holidays.


(note: there are a lot of SWYPO holiday recipes as well, but I obviously can't post them here - that's up to you!)


As we head into a season that is loaded with non compliant food possibilities, not to mention huge emotional triggers, the below is intended to help navigate possible pitfalls. Happy Holidays to all. 


Dallas and Melissa Hartwig (Whole 30 founders) actually DISCOURAGE doing a full W30 over the holidays here


Have a look at Dallas and Melissa's W9 Thanksgiving with full recipes right here:

Culinary Reflections....


if anyone would like to reflect on their culinary experience this time around - here are the thought provoking questions....


* what was your favorite thing you ate/made/thought about making on the W30? 

* what were the go to things you made and ate again and again (even if super simple)

* what, if any yummy dishes will you be continuing to make after W30 is over? 

* any favorite recipe links or blogs you discovered along the way? 

* anything you would or wouldn't do again food-wise?

Deb, thank you for all of your articulate posts.  I wouldn't change a thing.

I liked all of the recipes I've made.  If I hadn't made them, I would be in a food rut.


At this particular time, I would like to give you  the Culinary Award for Best Chef, Editor and Producer.  I wish I could give you a huge raise in pay, a new car and a paid vacation to Scotland with your entire family.   I would like to go and walk the moors with you and Le Grand Orange.  We would have to keep Mr. Cat on a lease.  No more Shawshank escapes for LGO.
