The Whole30® > The Scale: Hilarie’s Story

Jane C.’s Whole30® Success Story

We received this wonderful testimonial from Jane C. and couldn’t keep it to ourselves. Not only because the girl is so eloquent and funny, or because she has mad style, but because we’re sure that, if you’re a member of Generation Next (18-25 year olds), her story could be your story. […]
