Elaina is an aspiring homesteader located in York County, PA. She is currently a Systems Engineer during the day but is working hard to build her homesteading skills in the evenings. She began her Whole30 journey in 2016 after reading It Starts with Food. Whole30 has taught her a lot about food sourcing and inspired her to start growing her own food. Her goals have quickly changed from “growing her own food” to also “raising her own food”. Elaina wants to show others that you can have a normal 9:00-5:00 job, succeed with the Whole30, and have time for your own hobbies! Elaina is a natural teacher and loves helping others on their own journey.
“Whole30 helped me start thinking about food differently and has helped me improve my relationship with food. I started thinking about where my food comes from and how it is grown/ raised. I have made a conscious effort to source more food locally! I now buy all of my meat from local farmers where I can meet the farmers and see how the animals are raised. In doing so, I have become more connected with my food and appreciate it more than ever!”
