I decided to start Whole30 for the month of February (plus a couple days, obviously) to help get my diet back on track, and learn a little more about what removing inflammatory foods can do for my endometriosis, migraines, and allergies.

I will do a full post about Whole 30 once I finish the 30 days, but wanted to share some recipes as I go along!

Ensuring I get full nutrition with lots of veggies, I needed a side dish that was delicious, but veggie packed! Insert this 20 minute mash that is absolutely DELICIOUS. Even my veggie-hating BF didn’t mind the cauliflower, because you really just taste the sweet potatoes! This will be a go-to side for the rest of this month, and into the future!
