For the #SeptemberWhole30 we'll be tackling all kinds of Whole30 meal time obstacles. We've recently written about some of our favorite ways to stay on plan, like prepping ahead of time, batch cooking proteins, batch cooking veggies, and keeping Whole30 noms on hand at all times. That's all well and good when you're just cooking for yourself, but if you stay in for 30 days, it gets lonely. I wouldn't call myself a social butterfly, but I made the mistake of "just staying in" too much during a previous Whole30, so this time around, I'm being diligent in staying social, while also on plan.
A couple weeks ago, a friend called and invited us to get together with her for dinner and I took it as the perfect opportunity to flex my willpower muscle and turn our little gathering into practice for my Whole30. I volunteered to make our "noodles" because I had just gotten a huge shipment of big, ripe, zucchini and summer squash from Melissa's Produce. She volunteered to grab chicken thighs from the store along with some ingredients for a quick pesto sauce. What resulted that evening was one of the most delicious meals any of us had all summer long.
Come gather around the warm glow of the fire and listen, watch, share, discover, and be inspired by the conversation. It is here where we explore stories, and new ideas. Pull up a rock.
