The past few weeks I have shared with you some delicious and amazing Whole30 recipes. It is a great jump-start diet to help you start eating more healthy and get you on the right track. However, if you’re not familiar with the Whole30 rules, they can be overwhelming at first. There are rules and guidelines to follow if you want to take this challenge. “The Whole30 Program Rules. Eat meat, seafood, eggs, tons of vegetables, some fruit, and plenty of good fats from fruits, oils, nuts and seeds. Eat foods with very few ingredients, all pronounceable ingredients, or better yet, no ingredients listed at all because they’re totally natural and unprocessed.” Read more about how to get started here.

Starting the Whole30 Challenge isn't easy, because there is so much information out there. Here are some great tips for getting started as well as over 285 recipes to make it easy! :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com

The last post in this series:
Whole30 Desserts – I don’t know about you, but dessert is something we rarely had growing up. They were typically reserved for special occasions, like birthdays and holiday gatherings. We just didn’t eat them growing up. I am still not a huge dessert person, but my kids sure are. And while they are not on the Whole30 diet, I do want them to eat healthy. These Whole30 Desserts are just enough sweet to curb that sweet-tooth craving, yet keep you from derailing your new healthy eating.
