Woohoo, getting ready for week 1 of the Whole 30 Challenge! If you want to jump on board you can still join the October 30 day detox challenge Facebook group right here. Week 1 is usually wrought with challenges. For a lot of us, were not used to cooking this much, or being so careful about our ingredients. As our bodies start to process the fact that were not going to give them that quick sugar fix there can sometimes be an inner rebellion.

Your mind will tell you that this whole thing is bogus and won’t do you any good. It’s lying. Being prepared makes the work a lot easier. Having delicious nourishing recipes to turn to makes cooking FUN.

So keep in mind if your doing this solo, most of these recipes serve 4. No biggie, just cut them in half and have plenty of leftovers.

In the next few days I’ll be posting some Whole 30 Essentials so stay tuned.

Here’s to Week 1 starting October 1st homies!!
