How I’m Celebrating My Whole30 Journey

by Angie Anew on January 27, 2012

On Wednesday I asked people to vote on how I should celebrate completing the Whole30. (Three more days!) Now for the shocker: That wasn’t a scientific poll! AND it was non-binding. I can do whatever the heck I want! Whatever I WANT! Bwahahaha! Actually, the option I wanted got the most votes anyway. Naturally, I [...]

Too Late for Postpartum Core Strengthening?

by Angie Anew on January 23, 2012

Let’s say you have a goal. It could be any goal. Learning to cook, perhaps. Taking up camping. Knitting a scarf. It doesn’t really matter. The point is that you have a goal. What’s the first thing you do to achieve it? If you’re like a lot of people, the answer is clear: buy stuff! [...]

Twenty-two days! That’s how long I’ve gone without sugar, grains, dairy, legumes and processed foods. But let’s not focus on the withouts. The past few weeks of my Whole30 journey have been filled with leafy greens, vegetables, fruits, healthy fats and lean (and not-so-lean) meats. How’s it going? Well, my guess is that I’ll have [...]

Cuban-Style Pork Shoulder

by Angie Anew on January 22, 2012

Yesterday, we attended a large extended family gathering — a potential landmine for sticking to my Whole30 challenge. To ensure that I had something tasty to eat, I made Cuban-style pork shoulder from a Los Angeles Times recipe. The recipe calls for hefty amounts of garlic, spices, herbs and orange zest. When mixed with fresh [...]

Whole30 Food Journal ~ Fri., Jan. 20

by Angie Anew on January 20, 2012

My week of daily Whole30 food journal entries is coming to an end. Thank goodness! Don’t get me wrong — I’ve found it to be a useful exercise. (And I’ve enjoyed the support!) But man is it ever annoying to take pictures of everything you eat before you eat it. I’m a girl who likes [...]

Thai Coconut Chicken Soup

by Angie Anew on January 20, 2012

Pin It This soup is lovely in winter — warm, spicy and filled with nourishing vegetables. The original recipe from The America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook contains only chicken and mushrooms. While delicious, it doesn’t have enough substance for me. I need more veggies! So I adjust the original recipe to make the base and [...]

Whole30 Food Journal ~ Thurs., Jan. 19

by Angie Anew on January 19, 2012

Before I share my  Whole30 food journal entry, a few thoughts . . . Several times over the past month, I’ve found myself in conversations about food variety. The prevailing wisdom is that eating the same foods each day is boring. We need to spice things up! In theory, I agree. And whenever I look [...]

Whole30 Food Journal ~ Wed., Jan. 18

by Angie Anew on January 18, 2012

Hoo boy, it’s been a long day! So, without further discussion, I give you my Whole30 food diary entry: Whole30 breakfast: (Messy!) Poached egg with salsa and avocado slices; green smoothie (1 clementine, a few chunks of frozen fruit, 2 large green kale leaves, coconut milk and kombucha); black coffee. Whole30 lunch: Third time’s a [...]

Whole30 Food Journal ~ Tues., Jan. 17

by Angie Anew on January 17, 2012

Before I share today’s Whole30 food journal entry, I feel I should say something about the wonky food combinations I have going on lately. Although I realize it’s odd (from a foodie/seasonal eater perspective) to serve braised pork and apples with summer squash and tomatoes, I honestly don’t care right now. I can only be [...]

Whole30 Food Journal ~ Mon., Jan. 16

by Angie Anew on January 16, 2012

I’ve crossed the halfway point in my Whole 30 journey! In today’s food journal entry, you’ll see some repeats. The green smoothies have become a regular part of my morning routine. Lunch featured a hearty portion of the Thai chicken soup I made yesterday. (Recipe coming soon!) And dinner provided an opportunity to use the [...]
