The Whole30 has got me trying a whole bunch of new things. Let me tell you about them.
For breakfast this week I made a pretty awesome Dairy Free Frittata thanks to BravoForPaleo. Normally I am not one to reheat an egg dish, but this is pretty good and like that you get a hint of the coconut milk when you take a bite.
As for lunches, as always, Dan and I eat the same meals, twice. We prepare to meals, enough to make 4 servings each and eat it twice by splitting it up. Our first meal I just sort of put together, so there is no formal recipe but I made Whole30 Taco bowls where I used this site for the seasoning. Inside of our taco bowls I cooked a chopped onion, 2 chopped bell peppers in some coconut oil, added 3lbs ground beef and 1lb ground turkey and then added that taco seasoning to the mix. I add avocado to it during lunch after I warm it up, and for Dan, he adds tortillas and/or chips to the mix to add some carbs. Here are a few Whole30 taco recipes I did find though:
We also made an oven roasted chicken. And although I’d love to write about how great this is, next time… I am just going to buy a rotisserie chicken and call it good. Way too much work, it was more expensive to make my own, and the flavor was just okay. Unless it’s a holiday I probably will never spend the time to do this again. But if you get creative, here are a few do-it-yourself oven roasted chicken recipes I did find.
One-Hour Whole Roasted Chicken (check to make sure the lemon seasoning doesn’t have added sugar)
We made an old staple from THIS website. Our Pulled Pork BLT. Typically yes I would put the pulled pork on a sandwich and eat it like that, but during the Whole30 I have taken away the bread. Dan has left it in. This is tasty and a super easy crock pot meal for anyone to make.
Week 2 of the Whole30 hasn’t been horrible, but next weekend I hope to find even easier meals to prep. I was in the kitchen for way too long on Sunday, but can’t wait to find new things to try.
