You really are what you eat!

Hi, my name is Kara. I like cream in my coffee, my chocolate dark, cheese and a stiff martini. I don't cook.

 

If you asked me to write a short description of my eating habits one week ago, that's what it would read. In just one week, it's completely completely changed.

 

I didn't go looking for the Whole30. In fact, I'd never even heard of it before. I was looking for new face wash. In my search for the miracle skincare product, that would finally rid my 35 year old face of acne, I came across a product review that mentioned the Whole30. The reviewer mentioned the face products worked great once she completed her Whole30. I was intrigued.

 

Did I mention I don't cook? Well, now I do but I didn't before. Thankfully I'm married to a man who loves to cook, since I live in a small town with limited dining options. He makes great food, but now I realize he doesn't always use great ingredients. Oh, how my horizons have expanded in such a short amount of time and I haven't even scratched the surface.

 

For the last 8 days I've prepared 3 meals, every day, with wonderful ingredients. Who knew I had this in me?! I dreamt of honey and chocolate syrup night 2 and slept for 12 hours night 3. Other than that, it's been smooth sailing and I have not slipped once.

 

I woke up this morning feeling more alert than usual and my complexion looks better than it ever has. I'm not even kidding. I felt a bit narcissistic for spending so much time in front of the mirror this morning.

 

I'm in awe and a bit dumbfounded. The Whole30 makes complete sense when you think about it, yet why didn't I think about it before? They say when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Well here I am. Ready and committed to changing my lifestyle and prepared to reap the benefits!

Welcome Kara! It's always awesome to see people starting to cook. Then again, I'm also kind of opinionated and think that everyone should cook to some degree or another. :)

Amazing!  So happy to hear this!!

I am a person that says that my skin is gorgeous thanks to my skin care product (www.elementbotanicals.com) and Whole30.  Each one is amazing on their own, but put together, they're a combo that can't be beat!
