You’ve heard of Whole30, looked into a little bit, but you’re worried there’s no way you have time for that kind of commitment.  Whole30 can seem overwhelming at first, BUT it is completely doable (even for the busiest of people IF you give it the right preparation.  There is a pivotal week (prior to starting your 30 day journey) that goes into prepping for Whole30.  During this week, I menu plan, grocery shop, and then start to cook as many recipes as I can prepare ahead as possible.  This helps me in a few ways. Number 1, I’m a mom of two boys (with another one on the way), and we are in a constant state of chaos.  Between sports, play dates, and school, having more than 30 minutes to cook a meal on some days is impossible.  Number 2, the more food I have readily available, the less likely anything will stand in my way of completing a successful round of Whole30.  If you’re interested in doing the Whole30 with us, request to join our Facebook group here.
