    The Whole 30: What to read, how to cook, and what to keep in your kitchen.

    I did a little diet update yesterday, but the lovely Eliza commented that she’d love to know more about how I even know what to cook and what to keep in my kitchen, so I thought I’d do a more in-depth review of all of the tips and tricks I’ve learned so far. This is going to be a long and detailed post, so get yourself some (healthy) snacks, grab a cup of tea, and maybe whip out a pen and notepad to write anything down that is helpful to you. And feel free to comment with questions! First off, we’ll start with what to read. The first book, It…

    Change of Life

    Most people who hear that I’ve quit eating sugar and am planning to change out my white flours for whole wheat flour say “Oh, you’re dieting?” or “I need to go on a diet again…” But changing the way I eat isn’t just a diet. It’s not some fad that I plan to go on to lose weight and then go off when I’ve gotten to the weight I’ve set as my goal.

It’s not something like my fad-diet Aunt would do- cease…
