A couple months ago I started hearing a lot of talk about Whole30. Several of my favorite bloggers were filling my Reader, Facebook feed and Instagram with posts about Whole30, including Stacy, Anne, Tsh, and Jessica.
I was curious and after reading up on it a bit more, decided I was going to do it.
So…what is Whole30?
Whole30 is a 30 day nutritional reset, during which you eat real food and eliminate sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, and dairy. According to the founders of Whole30, Dallas and Melissa Hartwig, it is “designed to help you restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, calm systemic inflammation and put an end to unhealthy cravings, habits, and relationships with food.”
Are You With Me?
I had been talking with a few friends about doing the Whole30 challenge together, so I set up a Whole30 Facebook Group as a place for us to share resources, ideas, and encouragement as we go. We’re starting April 1st and would love to have you join us!
I’m In. What do I do next?
- Request to join our Whole30 Facebook Group where I’ll be posting valuable resources I come across, recipe ideas, and sharing my progress. We can check in with each other, and provide encouragement and support for each other as we go.
- Read up on the Whole30 program either on the Whole30 Website, or in the book: It Starts with Food: Discover the Whole30 and Change Your Life in Unexpected Ways.
- Start to plan for your Whole30 challenge. For me to succeed, I have to plan, so I’ll be spending the next week or so coming up with Whole30 meal options and meal planning using Plan to Eat.
- Official Whole30 Website
- It Starts with Food: Discover the Whole30 and Change Your Life in Unexpected Ways (book written by the creator’s of Whole30)
- Plan to Eat: Plan to Eat is an online meal planning tool that I use and love. You can join Plan to Eat free for the first 30 days and request me as a friend (kjeldy) which will give you access to all my recipes. I’m adding Whole30 recipes and tagging them Whole30 so they’re easy to find.

- Jessica’s Whole30 Eating Log
