Just in case you missed it, I posted another video up on my Youtube channel. In it I go over what groceries I bought for my first week on the Whole30, as well as some tips on how to make sure you’re prepared.

For this week I mostly bought my groceries from Trader Joe’s. Which is funny because I used to hate shopping there. There was something about all of my veggies coming in plastic wrap that made me think that store was “too processed.” Nope, I was wrong. They’re convenient. Which is awesome because, between you and me, cooking is one of the last things I want to do during the week when I’m tired.

Anyway, let me know if you liked the video. Are there Trader Joe’s staples that you love but I missed?

Whole30 Grocery Haul

  1. Hi Rachel,
    I am a week in on the Whole30. I have Fibromyalgia and CFS. I made sunflower seed butter the other day and my 11 year old LOVES it too! It is so easy to make! Do you have a grocery chain called ALDI near you? I can find some amazing finds that would cost much more so saving money AND buying healthy food is win win!
    I saw a lot of spritzer recipes in the book but I can not have carbonation so doesnt do me much good! Lol I love coconut water as long as no sugar added.
    How long didn’t take before you started to feel relief from pain?
    Thanks for your site and YouTube!

    1. Hi Rebecca! I’m so happy you are enjoying my blog and youtube channel 🙂 I DO have an Aldi near me. I actually just discovered it a couple of weeks ago. But I haven’t really explored it yet. My plan is to go check it out this week. I’d go today but it’s currently -5 in Chicago…whomp whomp. As for how long it took before I realized my pain was gone, it wasn’t an immediate thing. It wasn’t a “oh wow I have no pain today!” kinda thing. But more near the end of the Whole30, slowly realizing that my pain had been around a 5 out of 10 for a few days. And that I hadn’t had a 10 out of 10 kill me now flare in a long time. So I did the reintroduction of food. Most food I was fine. I had a small flare with alcohol but after my body got used to drinking it again I was fine with that too. But then I started eating gluten again. I was cool the first day, even the second day. And by the third day I wanted to cry. The pain came back! Like horrible back. And that’s when I knew.
