Grass fed ground beef cooked with no junk marinara sauce over steamed broccoli and cauliflower. This was so dang good after a workout.
Buffalo shrimp salad with tomatoes, carrots and cucumber. Dressing was a mixture of equal parts lemon juice & olive oil. I made sure to season those shrimp very well before pan frying and it made all the difference. Second time I made this, I used a rubber spatula to retrieve all the buffalo sauce from the pan for extra dressing and MAN it was good.
Veggie smorgasbord featuring zucchini, yellow squash, sweet potato, onion, avocado and olives. Wish I had used olive oil for frying instead of coconut oil. The sweet mixed with savory just didn’t jive here. Otherwise was an excellent meal!
Cobb-like salad featuring green beans, chicken, tomato, olives and a soft boiled egg. Added some Greek dressing over the top.
Operation NoMoreJunk started on Wednesday and will last until the hubs and I depart for Costa Rica in about a month. It’s like another Whole30 except the idea is to go for sensible rather than completely restricted meals/snacks. Cupcakes, candy and chocolate aren’t sensible- just so we’re clear. It’s those snacky things that tend to be my downfall. There will be 1 cheat meal a week though. In fact, I’ll probably post a pic of it here just for accountability.
Also, hubs had a physical and needs to get rid of some LDL cholesterol. Expect to see more fish, nuts (hello almond butter!) and high fiber foods up in here 👍 Less eggs and red meat 😁
