Hope you had a wonderful end of 2014. We had a great night celebrating at our home with goods friends and enjoying quiet a feast of wonderful treats and homemade eggnog. And the kids had a blast with sparklers.
Chris and I had planned to wake up the next morning and start our next round of Whole30 but at the last minute we changed plans and enjoyed one last day indulging ourselves, primarily so we could take part in the traditional southern New Years Day good luck feast that our friends invited us to and boy, it was worth it! This picture was taken on my phone so it doesn’t do it justice. The flavors on this plate were out of this world and hopefully will lead to lots of luck and goodness throughout the coming year.
So today then marks our official first day of our next Whole30 journey. I had big plans to do a lot of food prep but that was side stepped with getting down all the Christmas decor so I will work on it tomorrow. I am hoping to document and provide a weekly Whole30 update every Friday or Saturday. Pictures will be included similar to below with some recipes and ideas that you can follow and hopefully help you on your own journey. Chris and I completed our first Whole30 in August of 2014. We continued to eat the same way most of the fall but have felt through the holidays we were really missing the structure and had thrown some of the principals out the window so it is a great time to start. I knew when I said more than a couple of times “I really miss eating vegetables!” that I was definitely game for the challenge again. This time I am sure we will expand what we were doing on a daily basis and hopefully try some new things as well. I am looking forward to sharing our plan with you and hope we can help you too!
Day 1 – complete!
Are you taking the Whole30 challenge? Did you make other resolutions? Chris and I have some big goals for this year that we will share more of in the future, but other than healthy eating, I think as a family we are working on quieting and organizing our house and our life. We want to be intentional about the choices and commitments we make and not just say “Yes” to things all the time. Have you sat down and made plans for 2015? Any ideas you want to share? I am always encouraged and challenged when I hear people talking about the areas they want to change. Good luck to you all and I hope when we look back at the end of this year that we all made more progress than we could have ever imagined!
