Fully endorsed by Whole30, with a foreword by Whole30 co-founder Melissa Hartwig Urban
As millions of people know, one of the toughest things about completing the Whole30 is figuring out what to eat the other 335 days of the year. Kirsten Buck, creator of Buck Naked Kitchen, struggled with her weight and chronic eczema for years before she transformed her life through food. She adopted a mostly paleo way of eating—gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, healthy fats, no refined sugars—and experienced dramatic weight loss. Soon after, she went on to win the first-ever "Next Whole30 Star" competition and is now a certified holistic nutritionist, sharing delicious and beautiful recipes on her blog and Instagram with thousands of fans. From her Pesto Chicken Salad Sandwich for lunch, to Moroccan Lamb Stew for dinner, to the stunning Summer Berry Galette to satisfy your sweet tooth, there is something for every taste—in addition to recipe basics for making your own mayo, yogurt, salad dressings, tahini, and more—which prove that healthy eating doesn't have to break the bank.
