Today I completed day seven of the Whole30 challenge. I has not been easy, working 18 hour weddings makes it difficult. But I am not giving up, this challenge is helping me become better at living a 100% paleo lifestyle. Is is also challenging me as a cook, I have been experimenting with different flours, meats, and overall creativity. This salad is a great example, It’s a simple salad, as I like to have, the freshly squeezed apple juice vinaigrette gives the salad a lightly sweet taste, along with the salty bacon it really makes something special.

I have gotten a few questions asking about side-effects…so far the only side effect that I got was low energy, almost depressed like, this happened during day 3 and 4. But by Saturday I felt just like myself again.
