whole30 recipes

Soooo… it’s been a minute since I shared an update on Whole30 and my progress.  I shared the first post here and the second post here.  Well, that’s because…

I failed this time.

We spent a weekend in February at Terranea Resort and a weekend in Palm Springs.  To be frank, it was too challenging to maintain and I fell off the wagon.  I thought I could do it, I even called both hotels ahead of time to see if they had mini fridges and brought some of my own fruit and snacks. BUT, a little butter in my potatoes here, a piece of flatbread there and before I knew it, I was still eating pretty healthy but definitely not Whole30-approved.

I knew I would be having the occasional wine during the month but I wanted to be totally honest (as I always try to be on CBL) that by cheating a little during our vacation, it carried into the week once I got home.

SO, this is my final update… my failure! I think some people are able to do Whole30 while traveling and kudos to you – you’re my superhero. For me, I really learned this time that this eating program can only be done when I have 30 days without travel.  It adds so much stress to what can be already stressful when it comes to traveling, so I learned my boundaries.

This recipe above can be found here, and I went cheese-free and it was still so good! On to the next! Thanks so much for reading, and if you have any tips for eating well during vacationing, I’d love to hear! XO –

  1. I agree with you that the Whole30 is only feasible while at home. I am on the reintroduction phase now and made it through, but only went on one trip. I had to pack all of my food in a cooler and eat something lame at a really cool restaurant we went to. Not fun and wouldn’t do that again.

    1. HAHA – I did the same thing when we went on one trip the month we did it last year. I felt the same way!

  2. Funny! I had been looking for an update from you. 🙂 I was doing it, too and had to make adjustments at Day 16 because the headaches/low energy were NON-STOP. I’ve learned I need more complex carbs when doing intense workouts. And honestly…life’s too fun for Whole30. Thanks for keeping it real.

    1. Thank you for appreciating my truth!! I’m always trying to eat Whole30 at home but live life on the weekends. Eating out is just so hard!

  3. Don’t beat yourself up, the Whole30 program doesn’t even look feasible (to me anyway) at home. So I can only imagine how difficult it would be travelling!

    1. Haha thank you Shelley! It’s really a great program but traveling on it is hard. 30 days at home is the way to go!

  4. Ah yes! Whole30 is so good but so challenging! My fiance and I only made it to day 20 ish because we caved and got pizza and it just went back to normal after that. We still use some recipes though because the book really has some GREAT suggestions! But I totally concur, its tough! Especially with traveling!

    xo, jess


  5. You’re beautiful!!! Life is too short to not have an occasional glass of good wine;) I love your honesty! I’m the same way! I do so good, lol then I meet up with my girls and then turn to bad girls! lol
