It seems like I did Whole30 a lifetime ago. I completed my one and only full Whole30 in January 2019. It was tough but eye opening. For those unfamiliar with the Whole30. In short, it is a 30-day diet that emphasizes whole foods and the elimination of sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, soy, and dairy. You canContinue reading “Whole30 Approved Banana Muffins”
Happy New Year, friends! Let me brush off my very sub-par writing skills real quick. Back in 2012 I started a blog to track my weight loss journey. Since then, I have been on and off blogging and posting on my Instagram page. In 2019 I stopped blogging all together. I didn’t want to makeContinue reading “Welcome to a revamped PCE website”
I love when my favorite influencers post grocery hauls. Bonus points if they divide out grocery items out by carb, fat and protein. I did not do that in my photo for you today but I will try and divide out in descriptions below. Today I actually re-opened my Costco membership. I had been goingContinue reading “Weekly Haul: Costco”

I have finally perfected my turkey chili recipe. It is the perfect amount of spice and flavor. You could 100% add beans toContinue reading “Beanless Turkey Chili”
When Andrew and I graduated college we both lived with our parents while we worked in corporate America. We saw each other about once or twice a week depending on our schedules. Which just a quick PSA on doing that. I know getting an apartment would have been easier for us but we chose toContinue reading “Smokey Sweet Brussels Sprouts”
I started my transformation journey Summer 2012 and have never looked back. I have counted macros, ran multiple half marathons, done crossfit competitions. It is all about staying consistent, keeping a determined heart and realistic goals. I can’t wait to share my knowledge with you!
A highly anticipated post for folks that followed along my January Whole30 journey on Instagram. I wanted to share my results as well as WHY I chose to do Whole30. I’m actually going to start with my results because I wasn’t really fair with them. Before the holidays hit, I had been following my macros fairlyContinue reading “That One Time I did Whole30”
