Whole30 Meal Plan Round 2: Week Four



It’s Week Four! We are in the home stretch!

Speaking of stretching – my pants aren’t anymore!  Huzzah!  Hopefully, you too are seeing some of the benefits of this drastic change we’ve embarked on.  And, it should be getting a bit easier.  Although, it also might be getting a bit old.  So, remember you don’t have to do all this cooking.  Roasted or grilled meat with a little oil and some salt and pepper and a side salad is perfectly acceptable to have on repeat.

Now let’s get rolling!
