Jane C.’s Whole30® Success Story

We received this wonderful testimonial from Jane C. and couldn't keep it to ourselves. Not only because the girl is so eloquent and funny, or because she has mad style, but because we're sure that, if you're a member of Generation Next (18-25 year olds), her story could be your story. Too many young people today are dealing with chronic fatigue, obesity, and related diseases - problems only made worse by easy access to conflicting and confusing nutrition information. But Jane C. shows us that … [Read more...]

Whole30® Success Story: Pregnancy and April V.

When we first read of April V.'s Whole30 results, we took special interest. Turns out April started her Whole30 while eight (8!) months pregnant - and had the most amazing experience. We knew we had to turn this into a feature, to encourage other pregnant moms (and their partners, boyfriends, and husbands!) to consider our healthy eating plan for their mental and physical health, and the baby's health, too. Of course, you should always check with your doctor before beginning any dietary or … [Read more...]
