If you follow my Instagram or Twitter,
you may know that I try and post lots of pics about my Whole30/Paleo meals.
But if you don't follow those, or if you want more info..
I thought I'd share some of that with you...some little meal ideas and a few recipes.
and remember...that button above is over on my sidebar too.
Just click on it at any time to see all the posts about Whole30 stuff!
ok here goes. Hopefully this will help give a few ideas for eating during the week.
I've been SO encouraged by so many of y'all who have started eating this way!
So exciting to do this together!
Simple dinner: burger, broccoli and fruit salad
grilled burgers (I love to grill!), with sugar free ketchup.
steamed broccoli and a simple fruit salad
(I just cut up grapes and strawberries,
but you could use anything.
And I love to let fruit sit together in the fridge for a bit bc the flavors seep together and make it a little syrupy.) :)
sweet potato with a little cinnamon on top...
a great small lunch or afternoon snack!
You can get the microwaveable ones that steam themselves in the plastic wrap in like 7 minutes, if you dont want to bake them forever in the oven.
banana and sunbutter "pudding"
This little tasty treat was SO yummy and satisfied a peanut butter craving. :)
*confession: the hubby added a tiny squirt of sugar free syrup to this*
I used a frozen banana and about 2 spoonfuls of sunbutter,
blend together in food processor!
Would be great with slivered almonds or cashews on top, but I didnt have any.
this was YUM!
crockpot Mexican shredded beef and steak
(aka: use meat i needed to get out of the freezer.)
I literally just threw in two large chickeen breasts and two steaks that I had frozen in the freezer.
Added some diced tomatoes, a can of tomato sauce, and about 1/2 cup of salsa (sugar free)
Add cumin, paprika, garlic salt, salt and pepper, and whatever other spicy spices you want!
this was great, and Abigail even loved it in a quesadilla!
love this. And if you do not own a a Mandolin, get one now!!
it is the most amazing. slicer. ever.
After slicing, I "cook" it in a skillet with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and parsley
until it is tender.
Mom's spagetti and zucchini noodles
I'm putting this recipe up on my blog soon!
But if you have a good spaghetti sauce recipe you can just adapt it to Whole 30 guidelines and throw it on some zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash noodles!
Sausage Hash (recipe here), and green beans
a great Whole30 snack. I keep a bag in my car.
and great for this time of year!
I buy them bagged at Walmart, and add a little seasoned salt!
salad with vinigerette, sweet potato with cinnamon, natural applesauce
a great easy meal to throw together in minutes!
Beer Mug Shrimp Cocktail
*this won me some major point with the hubbs*
use Pre-cooked Shrimp (i had some frozen),
Then mix tomato paste, chopped celery, horseradish, salt and pepper, a little lemon juice.
I mixed the shrimp in it, then put it all in a frozen cold beer mug,
and placed a few shrimp around the top to look cool. :)
Sweet Potato Chili Fries
Ill also be posting this recipe soon, or you can find it here if you just can't wait.
one of my FAVS!!!!
scrambled eggs, sausage patty, strawberries, and a little sugar free syrup
This is a typical breakfast at our house!
Hope those gave y'all a few easy ideas!
Those of you who have started it...How are yall doing with it??
I am LOVING all the response and encouragement and questions, etc.
(and I'm still trying to respond to everyone, sorry!)
Here's my personal update, just while we are sharing here:
I am about 2 weeks in to doing Whole 30 for my second time, and I am loving it even better this time. I've already reached my goal weight, and so have added back in a few healthy carbs and such. I am doing a triathlon this coming weekend, so have been training heavy for that the last few weeks...so with that I have been having some more carby stuff too,
but nothing overboard.
Plus during the race on Sunday, I will def be using some GU and some electrolyte, sugar-filled energy booters. But I'm totally okay with that, if it helps me finish!! :)
(ahem, pray for me on Sunday, okay? Im ready, but def nervous!)
Lastly, here's some more resources for Whole30 and Paleo stuff...
lots of y'all have asked!
ok hope all this helps!
I'd seriously love to hear how everyone's journeys with this are going!
