Life is crazy. Living Whole30 and Paleo is hard. We’ve gone off plan more than I’d like to admit. We continue to meal plan for Whole30/Paleo, but we’ve also given in too much to social pressure.
My husband and I decided to start another Whole30 this past Monday. I couldn’t tell you what round this is for us – but I can tell you that until we can truly transform our way of eating and thinking for the long haul – I’ll continue for rounds to reset our body and mindset.
I started this round wanting EASY. With a one year old, I just don’t have time like I used to. When I get home from work, I want to spend time with her, not spending time making dinner or doing dishes.
Here is to day 4 on this round of Whole30! I’m looking forward to sharing my journey and food finds with you.
This chia bowl is delicious. It’s easy. It’s filling. It’s everything you want in a breakfast on the go. Make sure to pack some veggies to round out the meal – maybe some carrot sticks or celery.
Otherwise, this is a self contained meal that tastes amazing!
