Round 3 – Whole 30

March 1st, 2017

Happy March y’all!   I’m loving the sunshine we are seeing today & I’m feeling energized from all the Vitamin D I’ve been soaking up.    The days are getting longer qua daylight hours and I can practically smell Spring in the air.   It also seemed like a great time to kick off another Whole 30.    This will be my third one-  my first about a year ago which changed my life and how I felt so much, the second in August and now, this one.

I have heard quite a few people say that Whole 30 is hard.    No, honestly- it isn’t hard at all.   It takes thought, effort & in order to be 100% successful on the Whole 30 plan, you MUST be prepared.

I decided last week that it was time to do another Whole 30, so I started making mental notes (and some paper), of the things I knew I needed to do to set myself up for another Whole 30 success.

One of my favorite stores had boneless-skinless turkey breast on sale for an amazing price, so I called to see if they would grind some for me, but it wasn’t something that they do.  No problem- I did a little Googling and found a method to grind my own using the food processor.  Earlier this morning I spent some time doing exactly that.

I made some almond butter-   nothing but roasted almonds and salt.   That’s it.     Forget the fact that I burned the first batch because I got busy with something and remembered when I smelled the scent of burnt almonds (it’s not a good smell y’all).   The second  batch was a success.  I know exactly what’s in it, which is important.

I purchased and stuck in the freezer some packages of my favorite Whole 30 compliant bacon.   Plus, I found sweet potatoes on sale for a great price & decided to buy an entire box.   Kept cool, they keep for ages, so why not?

I also picked up some avocados, something I pretty much keep on hand all the time anyway, but this ensures I don’t run out.

Those are the ‘main’ things I’ve done thus far to ensure that I can manage without little stress and rock the next month.
