If you read Friday’s 2018 Goals Post, you know that I’ve dubbed 2018 a year of personal growth beginning with my overall health. When I started Style Souffle, I never imagined that I would use this platform to share my health journey, but after years of feeling par at best, and thinking there is a small chance that […]

    I am 14 years removed from thyroid cancer surgery and treatment, and I can tell you that Whole 30 has made a bigger difference in my life than any medications! I started it Dec. 2016 after my endocrine doctor had no real answers as to why I was feeling bad again. I followed it strictly for 90 days, and while I did lose weight, the best benefit was how I felt! Not to mention my A1C dropped,bad cholesterol went down more than 50 points, etc. My family doctor said she had never seen results like that without medication! It has totally changed my mindset about food and my overall health. I’ve loosely followed it for over a year now, and when I need a reset I go back to being strict with the guidelines. Definitely check out Moms Can Be Fit on Instagram – she’s treating her Hashimoto’s with diet and having great results. I think you’ll like her! Congrats on taking this first step!! 🙂ReplyCancel

  • I actually posted our favorite Whole30 recipes/go-to meals on my blog today! I know it’s so tough, but you can totally do it! Will be praying it helps with your symptoms too–here’s hoping it’s a game changer! xoxo

    Thank you TR for sharing! As we all reflect on the past year and looking for self improvement with the start of the New Year, both physical and emotional health are SO important. I appreciate your willingness to share your personal story and I think it resonates with a lot of women. Best of luck with your Whole30 journey!ReplyCancel

  • Thanks for sharing, sweet friend! I have a few issues that my mom swears is due to food choices so I really do need to make my health and eating habits a priority. I love the cutest grocery list you created!

    Hey Taylor-Rae,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences and information about the Whole30 challenge! I’ve suffered from low energy and extreme fatigue for my entire life. My doctor has advised that I exercise more often and manage my stress better. While it was helpful advice, I still feel sluggish and tired early in the day and I often wonder what else I should be doing to help myself as this has been a lifelong issue. I may try the Whole30 challenge for myself and may also pull my boyfriend in on it. He also has hypothyroidism and experiences negative effects from a lot of foods, though we haven’t quite figured out what those foods exactly are yet. This may be a good option for the both of us. Thanks again for sharing! I hope you will continue writing about your experiences.ReplyCancel

After Christmas, I’m over winter. Truth be told I could skip over sweater weather altogether for flowy dresses, fun sandals and warm weekends spent putzing around our garden. Speaking of garden, yesterday morning Floret Flowers full line of seeds and dahlias went on sale. I had anticipated this launch for months and sat anxiously by my […]
