I’m a devoted cook, enthusiastic barbell lifter, dedicated meditator, and professional-level eater, but for the scoop on nutrition and training, I recommend you visit with the people I rely on as experts.


Melissa & Dallas will change your life and make it ridiculously better. For real. I’m fortunate to be one of their Extraordinary Envoys and recommend their Whole30 program and consulting services 100%. They’re the authors of the New York Times bestseller It Starts With Food. Don’t miss the incredibly active and helpful online forum (free!), their well-written and inspirational blog, and the Whole30 Daily email subscription service that provides support during your Whole30.
