Truth 💣
-
So the SAD (standard American diet) is high in processed foods that are artificially sweetened and are loaded with salt.
--
Here are some VERY common products that are consumed on the SAD diet.
--
1. @cheerios Honey Nut Cheerios: Claim to be "heart healthy". I'm not sure why because the second ingredient in their list is sugar. Excessively high sugar levels causes diabetes. Diabetes = increased risk for heart disease. 🤷‍♀️ Serving size shown: 3/4 cup (which everyone eats AT LEAST this if not 3 or 4 servings worth).
--
2. @hidden.valley Fat Free Ranch: Just ew. Whenever a company takes fat out of their product, it's naturally going to taste gross. Fat tastes good. But wait, so does sugar. So when they remove fat, they add sugar. Don't believe me? Go look at two items that come in "regular" and "Fat Free" varieties and compare the sugar content. Serving size shown: 2 tablespoons
--
3. Ketchup: On the beloved ketchup. The amount of sugar shown is 1 tablespoon. Who uses just one tablespoon of ketchup on ANYTHING?! No one.
--
4. @cocacola Coca-Cola: Do I even need to say anything? That right there is 65 grams of pure sugar. Tossed into your blood stream. It's no friggin' wonder obesity and diabetes are at epidemic levels. Serving size shown: Whole bottle
--
5. @gatorade Gatorade: Same goes for you. We trick kids and parents into thinking we "NEED" Gatorade when we play sports, are highly active or dehydrated. Wrong. Water does just fine. And if you need electrolytes, you can find them without sugar. End of story. Serving size shown: Whole bottle
--
So here is a typical run down of someone eating a SAD diet:
Meal 1: 3-4 servings of Cheerios with milk (which adds additional sugar). Hungry within 1-2 hours because blood sugar spikes then crashes. (At least 48 grams of sugar in the morning).
--
Meal 2: They decide to get a burger and fries for lunch with a coke. Fries are smothered in ketchup. (At least 85 grams of sugar for lunch).
--
Meal 3: They go to the gym after work and try to eat "healthy" at dinner by eating a salad with Fat Free ranch and a Gatorade, because well, they worked hard at the gym. (At least 61 grams of sugar).
--

In case you missed out on the #Septemberwhole30, not to worry. I'm putting on another online group Whole30 coaching event for October! This time, the price is reduced! My community spoke and I am listening, and here's why.
--
--
It's plain and simple. Whole30 is free and always will be, but those of you that need a little extra tough love, I want it to be accessible to you. I never want price to be a hindrance.
--
I mean it. I literally just want you to try it. Even if you can't swing the $99, message me and we will work something out (some monetary requirement does help hold members accountable and keeps them committed to the process).
--
My heart and soul is in giving you the tools you need to make yourself healthier and I believe the best way to do this is with a Whole30. I want each and every one of you to experience the life changing effects of this program.
--
Are you ready to change your life?

Stocking up for my #JanuaryWhole30 is an understatement. Um, hello. I'm pregnant and I eat. A LOT. So I ordered. A LOT. Really excited to get this underway to transition me beautifully right into my food freedom again and labor. Bring. It. On.
--
I gots me some @larabar both in carrot cake and coconut cream pie flavors because. Just obviously okay?
--
Thennnn, I've got some @chomps sticks in the original and hoppin' jalapeno varieties (just in case I'm feeling spicy one of those days, chances are, I will be). Don't ask why but I think they taste like Slim Jims, except way healthier (just read the ingredients).
--
Some @kettleandfire bone broth just for straight sippin' and using in my favorite recipes.
--
ANDDD just in today hot off the press, @tessemaes compliant ketchup, BBQ sauce, balsamic vinaigrette and habanero ranch (see a pattern?). Those little packets are portable lemon garlic dressing and creamy ranch dressing to throw in your purse/murse to take to work, school, yoga (don't ask), out to dinner or whatever other lovely event you have going on. Yeah there's about 50 of them total, guess I'll be eating a lot of salads, out somewhere. Cool. I'm into it.

Have you ever wondered about Whole30? Do you wonder if some of the foods you are eating are contributing to your chronic health issues like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or joint aches and pains that can’t be explained by overuse, injury or autoimmune diseases? Could your sleep and energy levels be better? Do you have skin conditions that won’t resolve? Do you have stubborn pounds that you’ve tried to lose time and time again? Are you interested in improving your health, habits and relationship with food?

Breakfast: Made fried potatoes in ghee, homemade sausage and a couple eggs for each of us. A little medium salsa on top. Just what I needed! 👌
.
Of course with my pumpkin spice @nutpods.
.
.
Lunch: I have some leftover shepherd's pie that Brian made on Friday. I also have an @rxbar and unsweetened applesauce for a snack just incase.
.
.
Dinner: We have a bunch of leftovers this week and some veggies/meat in the freezer we're going to use up rather than buy a ton new groceries. This is the fun part, see what we can come up with. I had a pot roast last night but I used zucchini, sweet potatoes and celery rather than carrots because I was out! Heard it was good, I'll be eating it for dinner tonight. Be creative and use your leftover veggies for whatever sounds good! Roast em, sauté em, grill em, whatever you want! Add a little meat of whatever you got in the freezer and bam! Whole30 meal 😉

Breakfast: Apple cereal. This time I put some blueberries in it, finely shredded coconut and pecans! It was yummy! Just be aware that the recipe calls for maple syrup, honey or date syrup but those are not whole30 so just omit them.

Breakfast: Sweet potato breakfast bowl! It was really good! I topped it with blueberries, pecans and finely shredded coconut. I always make us a couple eggs to go with that stuff.

.
.
Lunch: Leftover sweet potato chicken curry because it made a TON! I ate it with cauliflower rice (this can be found in the freezer aisle already made up to avoid the hassle). Pictured is last night's taco salad.
.
.
Dinner: Tonight's pretty simple. Grilled chicken, salt potatoes with ghee and some vegetable, I can't remember what. Some nights, you just need simple.

Breakfast: Leftover Sweet potato and apple bake. Get the recipe here: https://www.paleorunningmomma.com/sweet-potato-apple-breakfast-bake-paleo-whole30/
.
Of course with my pumpkin spice @nutpods.
.
.
Lunch: Leftover cheese-less chicken parm with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. It was delicious last night but even better today! Get the recipe here: http://littlebitsof.com/2017/01/cheeseless-chicken-parm/
.
I also got a craving for pickles (thanks, Sherry!) so I ate a bunch of pickles this afternoon too!
.
.
Dinner: Taco night! Super easy for those nights there's not much time. I'll be home late tonight so Brian will whip this up! Price chopper sells ground beef with taco seasoning already added so we just brown that up. I make tacos out of romaine lettuce leaves. They're sturdy and can hold whatever fillings you add. Brian likes to make a salad. However you want to do it is perfect! We'll cut up peppers and onions, have olives, salsa and avocado or buy some pre-made guac. You can mix it up and make it however you like! Takes less than 20 minutes and dinner is on the table. 👌💃🏼 @tessemaes has some awesome dressings that finish these off perfectly. My favorite was southwest ranch but they don't make this anymore 😔 Next up would be their zesty ranch but they also have a creamy ranch that goes great too. You can also make your own homemade ranch. There's recipes for this in both whole30 books!

.
.
Breakfast: Omg. You've GOTTA try this one!! Bacon burger and fries breakfast bake (pictured above) from @paleorunningmomma. I think my favorite of the month! I will disclose I changed the recipe ever so slightly. First, I used a whole pound of ground beef, not a half pound. Second, I didn't have any mushrooms so I used an orange pepper instead. Finally, I had a little tomato paste left over so I squirted that in (it comes in a tube in case you're wondering). Like whoa. Top 5 favorite breakfasts so far. Get the recipe here: https://www.paleorunningmomma.com/bacon-burger-paleo-breakfast-bake-whole30/
.
Of course with my pumpkin spice @nutpods.
.
.
Lunch: I'll be out with my sissy for the day so likely chipotle or something similar. Very easy to get something compliant at @chipotlemexicangrill.
.
.
Dinner: Ropa vieja in the pressure cooker from @acalculatedwhisk. Get the recipe here: http://acalculatedwhisk.com/pressure-cooker-ropa-vieja/?fref=gc

.
.
Breakfast: Apple cereal from @paleorunningmomma. Of course with my pumpkin spice @nutpods.
.
.
Lunch: Grilled chicken salad from Vintage cafe because the smoky bacon chili caused some unfortunate GI side effects. I'll leave the rest to your imagination 💩.
.
.
Dinner: Going out tonight! I love these challenges because there are so many ways to order things that are whole30 complaint and still delicious! I like to bring my own clarified butter, hot sauce and salad dressing just in case!

Lunch: Leftover Chinese bok choy chicken soup! I also have some leftover pork roast and roasted broccoli because I didn't have much leftover chicken to put in the soup rendering it not as filling.
.
.
Dinner: Smoky bacon chili in the instant pot by @paleomg. The recipe doesn't call for it but I'm going to add sweet potatoes for a little extra "heartiness". Get the recipe here: http://paleomg.com/instant-pot-remake-smoky-bacon-chili/
