Whole30 - A Five Week Challenge

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I had too much fun with the family over the summer. We went on an epic five-week, Western states, national park road trip. Do you know how much junk food is out there when you're on the road? As much as I tried to order healthy meals for my family it was very hard in this part of the country. As a result, my husband and I decided to reboot with a five week fitness and Whole30 challenge. Our goal is to only eat whole foods and exercise. No processed foods, sugar, dairy, grains, legumes or alcohol, and work out at least three times a week.

Over the weekend I prepped and cooked up a storm of healthy dishes. I like cooking or grilling big batches of bacon, grilled chicken breasts, sausage, and pulled pork at the start of the week for quick and easy meals later with salads, eggs, and stir fry veggies. I also like simple ingredients that I can find at any store. For those of you who have asked about recipes or want a little inspiration for your own clean eating cooking regimen, below are a few of my favorite meals.

Remember clean eating should be easy and fun and not hard or complicated. I like to think of it as mixing and matching clothes. It gets me inspired!

Enjoy!
