Take the time to educate yourself & prepare accordingly
During your Whole30, do not recluse yourself from social outings and gatherings. If you’re planning a dinner date or heading out to a new restaurant with some coworkers or friends, look up their menu online. You can take a look at all of their options and figure out what is compliant on the menu.
What’s even better is you can call the restaurant if you have any questions or concerns about certain items. You will walk into that restaurant with a plan and executing that plan will be stress-free.
Ask family and close friends if they would be interested in a healthier way to eat and get them on board!
There is nothing better than having the support of family and friends, while on a #Whole30. Cleanse and detox your body, the first steps in feeling vibrant and less foggy. This is especially true if it is your first go around. If you’ve been invited for a night out with close friends who may poke fun at your new lifestyle, ask them if you can invite along your sister, who just so happens to be Whole30’ing with you!
Having that support system right by your side when tempted to make unwise decisions will prove to be tremendously helpful. In fact, print out a copy of this Meal Plan & Trader Joe's Whole30 Shopping List and invite your support system to come grocery shopping with you.
