Before I get into this, major high-fives to everyone who’s doing their Whole30 now and / or about to finish up!! It’s an accomplishment for sure.
Maybe you saw my Whole30 post on the Stupid Easy Paleo Facebook page or stumbled upon it here by chance. Maybe you started on June 17 or a few days before / after. Or maybe you’re about to embark on one soon. Whichever category you’re in, I sincerely applaud you.
To honor your [impending] success, I’m throwing a little virtual celebration…because who doesn’t like a good party!
1: Brag a Little (Hey, You’ve Earned It!)
Upload this nifty banner as your Facebook cover photo by right clicking to save or pin it on Pinterest!

2: Share Your Story in the Comments Below
I invite you to respond to this post and share two things:
1) What you lost during your Whole30 (cravings, bad habits, weight, etc) and
2) What you gained during your Whole30 (something you learned about yourself, better sleep, appreciation of a new food, etc).
3: Get a Photo of Your Favorite Whole30 Recipe Shared
If you’re creative and good with a camera, send a original photo of your favorite Whole30-friendly recipe to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of Sunday, July 27th. If it’s an original recipe, please include all the ingredients and directions. If it’s from someone’s book or website, please include that information. I’ll be selecting three photos to share on the Stupid Easy Paleo Facebook page and Instagram!
Congratulations again to everyone!
A special note
If you didn’t make it all the way through your Whole30 without falling off the wagon, I encourage you to start again. It sometimes helps to write down why you think you failed and to come up with a contingency plan around that. Don’t beat yourself up…tomorrow’s a new day. You can totally do this!! Go get it!
And just to keep everything in one place, here’s a link to all the Whole30 resources I shared with you throughout the month:
