whole30 week one

January Whole30 week one was a little challenging. I think my body was in shock! I wasn't eating the best food towards the end of 2016, and my body was adjusting. Around day three I got a little sleepy, I didn't have much energy, and I was craving sweets. Drinking more water helped with my cravings. My meals for the week were really basic, and simple. I like it that way. Some of my breakfast meals, ended up on repeat for dinner. It just works well for me. 

Sweet potato hash, prosciutto egg cups, zoodles, and brussels sprouts are my favorite. I even treated myself to Chipotle for dinner Friday night! The only meat Whole30 approved are the pork carnitas. I am also in love with butternut squash with a fried egg! It was so good! 











Hello, week two!!

prosciutto egg cups // whole30

Good morning, and happy Friday!! I wanted to re-share my prosciutto egg cups. You have to make them - they are a lifesaver when you are doing a Whole30. They take less than 20 minutes to make, and are so yummy. The best part is minimal dishes, and easy clean up!
  • muffin tin
  • prosciutto
  • eggs
  • salt + pepper   
  • avocado oil // extra virgin olive oil 
  1. preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. grease muffin cups with extra virgin olive oil, or avocado oil
  3. line the muffin cups with prosciutto
  4. crack in egg in each lined prosciutto cup
  5. season with salt + pepper
  6. bake for 15 minutes, or until your egg is cooked to your desire
  7. enjoy!


Quick and easy!!

xo, Steph

whole 30 // wegman's

Here's my first Whole30 approved grocery haul for 2017!! I get a lot of questions, on budgeting when doing a Whole30, so I wanted to break down how I shop and prep for a Whole30.



I keep my meals simple, and easy. I feel like if I am trying to make too much food at once, it will go to waste. This grocery haul was $75 - and will last all week for me. Roasting veggies is a great way to keep your grocery bill down. You can roast sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, butternut squash, and potatoes - and eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Fried eggs with oven roasted brussels sprouts, and crispy potatoes are great for breakfast. Baked chicken breast, with oven roasted brussels sprouts, and a half a sweet potato is a great and filling lunch. I use the ground turkey to make taco salads - this is great for dinner. Soft boiled, fried, scrambled, and poached eggs are great for all meals! Honestly, I never get sick of eating eggs, and I love a soft boiled egg with roasted veggies.

Here's what I stocked up on: 

  • eggs
  • spinach
  • tomatoes
  • chicken breast
  • ground turkey 
  • apples 
  • brussels sprouts 
  • kale
  • red potatoes
  • sweet potatoes 
  • celery 
  • bananas 
  • butternut squash 
  • asparagus 
  • avocado 
  • Epic Bar's
When snacking on a Whole30, I love eating apples or bananas with almond butter. Trader Joe's almond butter is my favorite, and it's not super expensive. I always keep protein bars with me, and really like Epic Bar's. Also, read your labels. I get a lot of questions too about which kombucha is Whole30 approved, and the only brand that I have found is GT's. Make sure there is no ADDED sugar in the ingredients! 

Simple, and easy!

hello, 2017

Anyone else excited for 2017, and relieved 2016 is over? I don't want to sound negative, but 2016 was a little crazy. Work was super busy, I lost focus on eating healthy and working out, and I didn't make much time for myself. I don't really don't want to set resolutions for 2017, but I want to be more mindful, and make myself a priority. There were awesome things in 2016 - my family is healthy, I got promoted at work, went on a bunch of fun hikes, and learned a lot about myself.




2017 will be more 

  • adventures 
  • real food
  • self care
  • yoga
  • gardening 
  • hiking
  • living outside my comfort zone
Time to live it up!!
