Shout out to everyone starting a #septemberwhole30 today! You are awesome and you got this! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ I am doing my own modified version that is 20 days (we have an upcoming trip planned) and Iโ€™m including rice. ๐Ÿš THIS #healthybreakfast is #whole30 though! Itโ€™s probably my all time favorite #whole30breakfast. The recipe for the sweet potato and sausage hash comes from @paleorunningmomma. If you are not following her, DO IT NOW. Seriously. The best. I served mine on a bed of arugula ๐Ÿฅ— and topped it with two scrambled eggs ๐Ÿณ. Iโ€™m eating it with blueberries and (a first for me) tiger figs. Iโ€™ll be honest, I had to google how to eat them ๐Ÿ˜‚ (you cut off the stem, but can then eat them whole). Verdict: not a fan. Am I missing something? Is there a much better way to eat them? Are mine not ripe enough? Give me the deets! Iโ€™m off to finish my coffee with pumpkin spice @nutpods and hopefully check off some to do list items. Annnnd probably watch a few episodes of The Great British Baking Show. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜œ Have an awesome Labor Day friends! #turnnorthandthrive #sausagehash #eggs #cleaneating

This will be my #whole30lunch aaallllllll week long ๐Ÿ˜. Itโ€™s one of my go-to favorite meals, takes very little time to put together, and is delicious! Chicken ๐Ÿ—, sweet potato ๐Ÿ  with ghee and salt, and a side salad ๐Ÿฅ— with @tessemaes Avocado Ranch dressing. On Sundays I cook a small (around 4lb.) chicken in my instant pot, let it cool and get all the meat off. I use it all week for quick lunches. I usually microwave a sweet potato (wash, poke holes on all sides and cook on high 2-3 min, then flip and another 2ish minutes). While that is cooking I get the rest of my plate ready. Sometimes I heat the chicken, but I like it cold too. Lunch is ready in about 5 min! Iโ€™ve seen people prep sweet potatoes in advance too... so really this could take 2 min to put together. Win. Win. Win! ๐Ÿ˜Š #bestlunchever #whole30 #healthyeating #healthylunch #turnnorthandthrive

Todayโ€™s #whole30breakfast is 2 scrambled eggs ๐Ÿณ on a bed of mixed greens ๐Ÿฅ— topped with @traderjoes Everything but the Bagel (EBB) seasoning. Served with pepper slices, cherries ๐Ÿ’, and cotton candy grapes ๐Ÿ‡! My deeeeeelicious coffee โ˜•๏ธ with @nutpods creamer not pictured, but much loved. Next up: workout. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ I love how much more energy I have when I am doing a #whole30 (or in this case a #whole12). Each time I jump into one I seem to feel better sooner than the last time. My body loves this way of eating! ๐Ÿ’— Happy Monday, friends! #healthybreakfast #cleaneating #turnnorthandthrive

During my first #whole30 I had a hard time coming up with ideas of what to eat in social situations. Today my husband and I went to the movies for a #dateday ๐Ÿ’— and here are the snacks we bought on the way to the theater. This is definitely not a perfectly balanced mini-meal, but helped us not to feel deprived of the typical movie theater snacks. ๐Ÿ“ฝcotton candy grapes ๐Ÿ“ฝcashews ๐Ÿ“ฝfruit leather ๐Ÿ“ฝcoconut water #whole30 #whole30snack #julywhole30 #cleaneating #healthysnack #turnnorthandthrive
