For meal 2 I had an Emerald kale salad with grilled chicken breast. Kale is a pretty new ingredient for me. It’s definitely tough and has a stronger flavor than lettuce. I’ve attached a picture below of the salad. I got this recipe from the Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook by Mickey Trescott.
Recipe: makes 4 servings (I cut the recipe in half and ate the whole thing)
Today is Day 1 of the Whole30 challenge. This will be my second round of the Whole30 – but this time I’ve got a few people starting the Whole30 at the same time so it will be fun to share … Continue reading →
I’m an avid yogi and pretty new the the eathing healthy scene.
My Yoga Journey
I got hooked on yoga about 2 1/2 years ago. My husband was putting a lot of hours in at his job and I needed something to do other than sit on my butt at home after work. I had never tried yoga and we actually really nervous, what if I can’t do the poses? But I sucked it up and went to my first ever yoga class, and I actually didn’t really care for it. It was hot, I couldn’t hold a lot of the pose and it definely wasn’t relaxing. The studio I went to offered a week free so I decided that I had to give it a few more tries before I would write it off. I went another 4 times that week and by the end of my free week I bought a package and decided this was my new hobbie. Since then I have contineued to deepen my yoga practice and practice at least 3 times per week at the studio.
Eating Healthy…This is kind of new for me.
About 2 months ago I saw a 3 minute clip on GMA about Whole30. It was intrigging so I looked it up. It’s a 30 day program where you eat only protein, vegetables, healthy fat and some fruit. I was determined to try this program. I was not over weight and actually ate okay but it wasn’t necessiarily healthy foods I was fueling my body with. I made it through the 30 days and felt better than ever! I have adopted the Whole30 meal plan as my new healthy eating lifestyle.
