IT’S HERE: the last week of your Whole30! High-fives all around – we’re so happy to be a part of your journey! Now let’s chat about what happens after you make it through 30 days. As a part of the Whole30 guidelines, it’s recommended that you first go into a reintroduction phase right afterwards, which simply means that you introduce back in one eliminated food group (grains, dairy, sugar) per day and note how your body responds with each one. Did you notice any bloating, cramping, digestive issues or skin problems again? Understanding which foods triggered these symptoms allows you to learn and make smarter food choices moving forward. The goal of Whole30 is never meant to make you feel restricted, but rather provide the tools necessary to be strategic about eating foods fit for you. These changes can be incorporated into your new lifestyle so that you take every opportunity to feel your best! True food freedom is finding the balance in a lifestyle that works for YOU: no guilt, stress or shame around food choices and being confident with your decisions, knowing that they work for you and that’s all that matters. A positive relationship with food starts with ...

What does a high protein meal plan mean? Protein is an essential part of our nutritional needs: we all need it to build + repair muscle and maintain bone, joint, and skin health. A higher protein meal plan puts a little more emphasis on eating high quality proteins such as eggs, poultry, grass-fed meats, and seafood in addition to a variety of vegetables, fruits, and healthy fats. Our high protein meal plan provides 35-45% of your daily calories from protein, which just means that you’re getting more of your daily energy needs from protein to help promote muscle growth and support recovery – especially important if you live an active lifestyle or have specific fitness goals to meet. So tell me more… What do I eat? Every single one of our dietitian-approved meal plans focuses on eating nutrient-dense, real, and wholesome foods. The high protein meal plan stocks your fridge up with quality protein sources like eggs, poultry, seafood, grass-fed meats, and even plant proteins like beans, nuts, and seeds. You can choose from fan favorites to fuel up such as our Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwich for breakfast and snacks like Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad and House Smoked Salmon (we ...

Today’s post covers a topic in nutrition that I get asked about pretty often, and I think I know why. It pretty much flies in the face of everything we’ve heard about healthy eating. You know, that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or that we should eat 5-6 times a day to keep our metabolism running. So today I wanted to cover the basics of intermittent fasting, the benefits of the practice, and how you can get started. What is intermittent fasting? Intermittent fasting (IF) is a pattern of eating that changes when you eat, not what you eat. IF comes in many different styles, the most popular of which is to fast for 12-16 hours of the day, and eat all of your meals within the remaining 8-12 hours. For many, this looks like eating an early dinner and then skipping breakfast. For example, if you wrap up dinner by 7PM, you’ll have fasted for 12 hours if you eat again at 7AM, or 16 hours if you break your fast at 11AM. Some other ways to IF: 5:2 method – eat normally 5 days a week, and decrease calories to 500-600 for the remaining 2 days. eat-stop-eat – fast for ...
