Whole 30 – Day 28 Super Bowl LI

Fun fact: The first and last time I did the Whole 30, it was during the super bowl and this time is no different.  Coincidence? ….or maybe there is something about starting a reset/detox after the new year.  Either way, since Steve joined me this round and the Super Bowl is like a Holiday for him, I decided to do a Football food themed Whole 30 compliant menu.  When I realized how many people would be joining, I did add a couple of non-compliant items because …well let’s just say you can’t have a Super Bowl party without pigs in a blanket.  🙂 Despite not being able to drink a cold beer or a nice glass of wine, I’m going to go out on a limb and say the Whole 30 Compliant food was a success (even if the cocktail wienies were one of the first things to go)!

Day 28 & Super Bowl Menu
