We’ve officially made it through the halfway mark of our January Whole30 reset. Recipes like the ones I shared in my last post, really made it easy to plan ahead and eat delicious food. That’s really what it’s about. If the food is full of flavor and fills me up, it makes the lack of some things easier to swallow. Pun intended!
While I’ve done Whole30 before, this time around my biggest takeaway on this journey so far is the realization that I can cook! Being the wife of a chef, I didn’t do much cooking at home before we started our Whole30 journey. And to be fair, when we met my oven was used for storage and not cooking. But taking charge of our Whole30 meal planning and cooking more over the last few weeks has been a confidence booster. The True Story recipes have been easy to follow, and I’ve discovered some great cookbooks including The Defined Dishh and The Whole Smiths Good Food Cookbook. My favorite recipe so far has been the 10-minute mashed potatoes in the Instapot!
As we head into week three, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Week three is notably hard as the boredom and cravings can come on strong, knowing that you’re almost finished. My advice is to mix things up and try some new veggies and meats that may not be on your radar. I’m planning to add in some crab and other seafood to my weekly meal plan. I’m also going to try a parsnip and carrot combo to limit some of the potatoes I’ve been eating. I’m also excited about this Winter Vegetable Skillet with Sausage recipe that we just added to the recipe section on our site. Give it a go and let us know what you think.
Here’s to your continued success on your third week of our Whole30 journey!
I just tried your old fashioned hot dogs for the first time, WOW! I have spent decades sampling every hot dog available and was blown away by how fantastic yours is. The flavor, the snap, and the authentic taste of beef. By far the best.
We just served the apple and wildflower honey chicken sausage... the best tasting ever, not to mention the added benefit of knowing the products are high quality and the company prioritizes animal welfare, both of which are very important to my family.
We've tried the Organic Beef Hot Dogs and were so pleased to find them as we don't eat hot dogs unless they are free of chemicals, etc. Thank you so much for producing healthy alternatives for us!!
I recently purchased your Uncured Italian Dry Salame and am extremely impressed. You can really taste the difference between other dry salame and this one. Keep making delicious Uncured Italian Dry Salame!
I loveeee your guys’ products! Its been helping me eat healthy and trim some weight. My whole family loved these!!
Thank you for making awesome and great tasting sausage my family and I love to eat. Your company is doing a awesome job. Keep up the fantastic work and thank you.
I have shared how delicious your sausages are with several friends who care about what they put into their bodies. I have multiple food allergies and my body loves this. Your Organic Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage is the best!
