Happy 1 Week, yall! How’s everyone feeling? Now that we have made it through Whole30 week 1, I wanted to check in and update everyone, provide exactly what we ate all week, and make sure you have my comprehensive shopping list. This week, I actually felt pretty good. My energy levels were increased, and I felt elated most of the week. Since I stopped breastfeeding in June, my hormones have taken awhile to get back to normal, so I have definitely felt some “low” moments aka baby blues at times. This week was different and full of highs! YAY!

Side effects: Nothing really too significant to report, except for a stomach ache for a couple of days and some of the most VIVID dreams I have ever experienced. The dreams abruptly awoke me and made it very difficult to go back to sleep. Took me back to my pregnancy days, that’s for sure. In this post, I will provide additional resources, my meal plan, and Lindsey’s Recipe of the Week: Whole30 Approved Cauliflower Soup.


After typing out my meal plan, I quickly realized repetition is not a big deal to me, clearly. I LOVE food and typically eat pretty large portions. Convenience is also an absolute key for me, so I have no problem eating the same thing multiple days in a row. If you are not able to do this, I urge you to create your meal plan BEFORE the week starts. We create a basic plan on Sundays, and that typically gets us through the entire week.

This week was a little different because of the snow day, so we had to get creative. We were stuck in the house for 2 days and pretty much had to live off leftovers and whatever was in our fridge. Speaking of…cabin fever is kicking in. I just heard that Birmingham City Schools are closed tomorrow. If Asher’s school doesn’t open, I am really not sure what I will do. #needsomemetime

Remember guys…PROGRESS OVER PERFECTION. That is our motto. Stick to your plan, but if you mess up, don’t quit. Keep going! We are here to support you!
