PCOS -- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome -- is a disease that's known to affect roughly five million women in the U.S. alone--nearly 10% of the population, including yours truly.

30 Days After Whole 30

It's been a month since I ended my Whole30, so I thought I'd look back at the last 30 days of life after Whole30. All in all, I think it's gone well.

Goal Setting and an A-ha Moment

Since my last post, I've cut back some on bread and dairy, and I'm already feeling quite a bit better. Today I picked up some almond milk to see how I like it. We've still got bread and cheese in the house that we need to eat up so it doesn't go to waste, then… Continue reading Goal Setting and an A-ha Moment
