A conversation with a gym-mate prompted me to begin the Whole 30. I have been wavering with the idea, but now I am 100% fully committed to my 2nd Whole 30 challenge.
What is the Whole 30? Check out the site below:
The Book is fab and you can find it here:
I have previously written about the benefits of doing a Whole 30 Challenge here:
phewwww ok, so are you all looped in? Filled to the brim with splendid information? Mmmmmmmk let me now fill you in about kale fumes.
To begin, I want to inform you that kale fumes are real (giggle) and they took place in my parent’s kitchen last night. I got super Martha Stewart like and went to the grocery store for some quality grub: kale, sweet potatoes, and avocados. The moment I got home I took out a pan and threw some chopped kale in with olive oil. I guess the heat was too high because almost instantaneously the kitchen and living room became rather smog- like. My brother even commented on the fact that he was having a difficult time breathing (oops) nevertheless, the kale turned out great. Infact, I didn’t make enough because it was finished in about 10 minutes.
I guess you could say last nights smokin’ hot kale, salmon, and sweet potato’d dinner was the beginning of a whole slew of new and fresh meals that will be cooked, prepped, and prepared as I go through the Whole 30 journey.
Below is what you can expect on Allthingsyogi:
- 1 post-a-week on the Whole 30
- Changes in mood and bod (heyooo 6 pack)

What’s easy on the Whole 30?
Black coffee= simps, it’s the way I like it!
Veggies, good fats, fruits, lean meats, good fats=yep and yum
No alcohol=haven’t been drinking for the last few weeks anyways so no problemo
Some nuts and good fats=I could eat guacamole every day, all day but this is a no-go for my figure
