Whole 30: Days 6-9

As I start the second week of my Whole30, I’d like to point out a few things. The first is that I end up eating on-the-go a LOT (as evidenced by the Rubbermaid) so strike that as an excuse. The second is that I eat (and re-purpose) a lot of leftovers. Some of that is because I make big batches that no one else eats and some of that is just being efficient. You don’t have to spend an hour over the stove three times a day. And it does get easier with practice.

And, just to add some foreshadowing, our food budget is surprisingly low. I’m realizing that this Whole30 is being done very much on the cheap and plan to share some tips and tricks in the future.
