The Virgin Diet: End of Cycle 1

I did it. I survived. For two weeks, anyway. As a recap, the last two weeks meant no dairy, no gluten, no soy, no eggs, no corn, no peanuts, and no artificial sweeteners.

I have also been ridiculously busy the last few months — two jobs and 80 hours will do that to you — and have epically… Continue reading Meals on Wheels: Hungryroot
