Now that I've done the Whole30 I want to tell everyone about it and all the foods they can eat during it! I know when people hear they'd have to cut out sugar, grains, and dairy, they automatically panic wondering what will be left to eat, but I'm here to tell you: plenty!
This list of tried and true recipes is proof! It's delicious food that will leave you satisfied and feeling good. This list includes my favorite snacks, condiments, and recipes, as well as the favorite recipes of the girls who did the Whole30 with me -- thanks ladies!

Also, a head's up: I'm planning to do another Whole30 in January!! Yay!!
I'd actually love to do it sooner but it's not recommended you attempt a Whole30 over the holidays, which makes total sense to me. However, I am very much looking forward to round two in January and I'd love for you to join me! Let me know if you're interested and I'll make sure to include you in any discussions leading up to it!
