Whole Family Whole30 Wk2

Our Whole30 Week 2 hasn't gone as smoothly as the first. I think there is a point when you're tired of being in the kitchen cooking and washing dishes. We switched meals around daily. It was also a week where we had to go away from home and plan that around meal time. Typically we'd be stopping by a fast food restaurant and grabbing something. So going out between meals, waiting longer to eat, or bringing a picnic lunch are the only options. It saves money and we get something healthy to eat, but it has to be thought out. Spontaneity is much harder, which is the lifestyle we usually live by. We're holding on strong to the food plan and no cheating, but certainly more of a challenge as life goes forward.
Is it worth it still? Oh yes! Our overall health is improving and we're enjoying REAL food and drinks. That's always worth it.

Our Whole Family Whole30 Meal Plan (here) gave me good ideas for our second week. I found most of the recipes using Pinterest and my own recipes.
