Thursday, September 04, 2014      3 comments

I have decided that I am not going to try Whole 30. I need to get and read the book and see if this makes sense for me--cause no dairy, grains or beans will really change the way I eat for me and for hubby. I need a better understanding of "why... Read more

September goals
