Even though Fall is in FULL swing here in the Midwest, I'm throwing it back to some of my sweet summertime reads with today's review!

When we started our August round of the Whole30, I had fleeting thoughts that we'd never make it. Now, here we are on day 30, four weeks of a nutritional reset behind us, and I couldn't be more ready to move forward with the reintegration process!Read More
