Whole 30 Day 15

Whole 30 Day 15

Halfway done! Only 15 more days left and I’ve made it through this Whole 30 challenge. I think challenge is an overstatement for me because I didn’t really change my eating too much, but I did become more conscious of my eating, which is never […]

Whole 30 Day 14

Whole 30 Day 14

Ratatouille with Creamy Parmesan Polenta
