Whole 30 Update: I See The Light!

Howdy Adventurers,

You missed my posts?  You did didn’t you?

**hears crickets** o_0

Well, for all of you who did (yay for my one reader!), you were probably wondering how The Whole 30 journey is going. Welp, here is the latest updates! So sit back, grab some popcorn (no wait, that’s not Whole 30 approved. grab some, erm, beef jerky) and enjoy the post!

Today marks Day 25!  I see the light and it’s not a train! 😀

After a very rough start (like rough as meaning finding out “innocent” foods having offending ingredients and having to restart the program twice), I feel like I am in my groove now!

Here is a list of a quick noticeable results:

  1. My man pooch (and you women thought you were the only ones that had this!) has melted down considerably. I no longer look like a miniature Jabba The Hutt.
  2. My skin is clear. No more pimples as of now.
  3. My nails are growing like crazy. I will be soon be like Wolverine and use my claws to cut my grass-fed meats for dinner with them.
  4. Eating grass-fed meats is truly a blessing when one becomes committed to doing so.
  5. By God’s grace, I have learned that I am stronger than my food cravings and sugar is no longer a master of me.
  6. The Whole 30 lifestyle is sustainable for me and empowering because I know the value of choice.
  7. I’m no longer a slave to bad foods and/or pseudo-foods disguised as healthy.

I’ll stop with seven now. Thanks for reading.

Fresh Friday: The Ridonkculously Easy Ghee

Adventurers,

During my Whole 30 journey, I dared to venture into ghee making and was surprised at how ridonkculous easy it is!

Ghee is clarified butter. You would remove all the milk solids to get pure, unadulterated fatty goodness. Plus, you save money!

How about you? Do you want to dare into the unknown? If you decide to give the recipe a go, please comment below. I would love to find out how the process when for you!

If you are a visual learner like I am, there is a video below to help you with the process!

If you want to print out instructions on how to make ghee, here is the best detailed instructions I found. Who’s looking out for ya? 😉

Kitchen Basics – Clarified Butter (Ghee)

Much success to you! Remember if you do this, comment below and let me know how it goes!

P.S. You want to cook ghee at 30 minutes (general rule) so make sure to set an egg timer!

The Whole 30 Scam!

Adventurers,

That’s it! I’m off The Whole 30 program because this is simply a scam. I mean there is NO WAY people can make changes on this food plan. EVER. It’s too restrictive. It’s too mental. It’s too hard.

(Dramatic pause)

Early April’s Fools!

On the contrary, The Whole 30 program is completely do-able and the results speak for themselves.

Here is a testimony from healthy blogger Cyndi about her results with The Whole 30 program: Whole30 Results

You CAN do it! I believe in you!
