Mash up featuring salami, chicken, sweet potato, broccoli, mushroom and hot sauce. Credit goes to paleomg for the idea.
Chicken salad with red onion, grapes, cucumber, beets and asparagus. Went to my local Whole Foods to find Love Beets, which I discovered via Instagram. It was convenient to have them ready to go at a moments notice, but obviously cheaper to peel/roast yourself.
The time has come — I finally made zoodles. Would make this particular combo (pictured here with shrimp) instead with ground beef next time. Looking forward to getting some good use out of the new spiralizer 😀
Mother’s Day brunch featuring mushroom tomato casserole with fresh fruit. Not Whole30 approved, but a healthy choice nonetheless.
I figure the utility of keeping this blog going is to share healthy recipes that are quite easy to prepare and yummy. If I wanted to make it more of a journal, I’d tell you that I had a few moments this week where I ate like absolute crap. Peanut m&m’s and chocolate cookies made an appearance– not things I bought for myself, but encountered in social situations. It was relatively easy to say no to junk on Whole30 since I had committed myself to it so ferociously. There is something to that theory that you shouldn’t deprive yourself because you end up craving whatever you’re avoiding more. I experienced those cravings throughout the first half of my W30, and then miraculously they went away altogether. Even though we have a few social events and a house guest planned before our trip, I’m going to commit to at least 11 straight days of Whole30 inspired eating. And a greater ratio of cardio to lifting. It took about 8-10 days to lose the usual bloat when I did this before so 11 days should be good. And…I’ve already started planning another round of W30 😎
