Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name is Angela. I am a scientist, wife, cat-mom, and fitness enthusiast. This page is my personal blog, and you will find a range of topics, centered around healthy living. I hope you enjoy your visit!
I’ve been tossing around the idea of doing the Whole30 Challenge from the book It Starts With Food. This isn’t anything new. I originally read the book back in 2012 (there is a newer version also). I never did the Whole30 (meaning a “whole 30 days”) after reading the book, even though I really enjoyed it and would recommend the book to others.

A couple of weeks ago, I received a copy of “It Starts with Food” by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig. I was really excited, as this book has been on my wish list for a while now.
