Monday, Monday, Monday, usually, I despise you, but today, I love you. I am so blessed to have a wonderful job. My coworkers are like family, and I rarely leave work with a frown on my face. Seriously. So blessed. I got off work, and watched an episode of Breaking Bad with my fiance and his roommate. We are three episodes from finishing the show, and goodness gracious are we ready to know what’s going to happen. We got tons of giggles out of our silly pup Kingsley too. Then we worked out, and my shoulders are SORE!
Post workout, my stomach was killing me, because I ate some yogurt this morning (not Whole30 compliant) and have been paying for it ever since. I whipped out some Digize essential oil, rubbed it on my stomach, and luckily, my stomach is finally settling down.
I love my EOs, since I like to use more healthy, natural products on my body. If you’re curious about learning more, check out my post: What the Heck are Essential Oils! I would love to get more people on my team, and more people to dive in and discover the gloriousness that these babies hold.
Yesterday, I wrote about how I prepare for a Whole30 using the Whole30 website, and the resources involved. Today, I write to you about other amazing resources that I recommend.
Instagram: If you have an Instagram, follow me @youngwholeessential and follow @whole30 and @whole30recipes. As I go through my whole30 Round 2 I hope to post daily with my meals! I also recommend @stupideasypaleo and @paleoomg, although not everything they post is Whole30 compliant. @whole30recipes is great. The people over at Whole30 pick a guest blogger every week to blog recipes. I usually follow the blogger of the week, and have slowly built my feed to be a lot of whole30 approved bloggers!
Blogs: Then of course there are numerous blogs that are so helpful! Some of my favorites include:
- Nom Nom Paleo
- The Clothes Make the Girl – author of the Well Fed Cookbooks
- StupidEasyPaleo – Great for those of us who lift, and need a diet that caters to athletic needs.
Cookbooks: I love books. I love them so much. I love cookbooks for their beautiful photography. Below are the cookbooks I HIGHLY recommend and which have tons of recipes that can get you through a Whole30. The WellFeds and NomNomPaleo specifically point out compliant meals. Check out other paleo cookbooks too, as they have compliant meals, you just need to check and double check the ingredients! So, here’s my list:
- Whole30 Cookbook
- NomNom Paleo
- Everyday Paleo
- The book I want but don’t have: The Performance Paleo Cookbook
These are the resources I use to get through a Whole30. As always, I would love to hear from you! Email me at kelsileeEO@gmail.com or leave a comment!
