Well, doesn’t this sound a lot like life with food allergies. When you’ve got food allergies, avoiding foods, bringing safe foods on an outing, and being a label reading ninja isn’t anything new.

Whole30 Snacks - Allergy Friendly

Let’s talk about Whole30 snacks! I don’t know about you, but I can’t survive on just three meals a day, especially if you live an active lifestyle. To sustain your energy levels, you will most likely need to be snacking on a little something in between meals or around a workout. Continue reading

Whole30 Day 6: Battling Breakfast

Whole30 Meal Plan: Day 6

Whole30 Day 6 meal plan: breakfast

My biggest fear about meal planning for Whole30 was breakfast. I love cereal or oatmeal in the morning. It’s neutral-ish for early morning eats and fills me up until lunch. As you can imagine eating eggs in the morning, which are not neutral in flavor, was going to be a challenge. They were ok for the first five days, but this morning finishing my plate of over-easies was a bit of a task. Continue reading

Whole30 is expensive ya’ll! If you are thinking about giving Whole30 a go, be prepared to dish out the dough at the grocery store. We are paying at least twice as much. And this is freaking me out! I knew it would cost a little bit more, but wasn’t prepared to see the price tag.  Continue reading

Whole30 Day 2: Sweet Potato Rösti

Whole30 Day 2 Meal plan: sweet potato rosti

It’s only day two and all the feels. Let me get specific: WTF no green smoothies! Man if I knew this two days ago. But for real, I just found out that green smoothies are a no-no-maybe-but-better-no kinda food for Whole30. The reason is they want you to chew your food because drinking it tricks the mind. Also, smoothies generally have a lot of sugar from fruit. I say generally because my green smoothies only contain enough fruit to give the smoothie the sweetness it needs. I’m talking a fourth of a mango. That’s not a lot! Continue reading

Whole30 Day 1 Meal Plan - Ratatouille & Meatballs

Bring it on Whole30! As you may have realised, especially if you follow the Allergy Girl Eats Instagram account, I am doing Whole30 from January 10th to February 9th. Diets have never been something I support, but Whole30 is not your typical diet: it is a reset. It focuses on learning more about how food impacts your bodily functions and your mental space, such as a food addiction you may not realize you have. Continue reading
