Meal 43- Breakfast. When it comes to the work week, I tend to make meals that are quick to make and quick to devour. I grabbed a banana with almond butter, a larabar and a bottle of water. With a good amount of protein, I was energized and full through lunch.
Being past the half-way point in days is very exciting. 15 Days have lapsed and 15 to go!
Meal 46- Breakfast. A super easy breakfast for sure. I love poms in the fall so i had a bowl of those with my larabar. Added a cup of pomegranate oolong tea and i was all set for the day! While it is not as filling as other breakfast items I have had during Whole30, it was exactly what I needed today. I did not have an appetite so I had to eat something. (you should never skip breakfast)
correct! They have a ton of health benefits (like cancer prevention) and have proven to be better than regular potatoes for those health reasons. So, I took one purple potato and grated it until it was a hash, adding carrot to the mix and placing it in the cast iron to crisp with a smidgen of duck fat. Meanwhile, I boiled one egg and placed a couple of strawberries on for my serving of fruit.
coconut aminos, garlic, salt/pepper, and fine herbs). Since this ground beef is 96% lean and 4% fat, the coconut aminos were a perfect flavor boost and extra fat the meat needed. I had sliced the potatoes, sprinkled garlic and herbs on top, drizzled EVOO, and placed them in a 450 degree oven to crisp. Meanwhile as my mini slider burgers were cooking, i chopped purple onion and placed them in the other half of the pan (with a smidgen of shallot and dried onion to give a boost of flavor). I really did enjoy this meal and it was a good way to end the day.
faux-oatmeal and figured I would give it a shot. I used egg, banana, baking soda and mixed them together. Added coconut oil to my pan and cooked as it had said. Now, I am all about some oatmeal (even eaten the gluten-free version so i can still enjoy it) but i was not a fan of this. It tasted like a bland mix of eggs and banana, one combination of tastes that I do not think I will try again. I did top mine with leftover strawberries and walnuts (from my raw nut mix) and scarfed it down simply because I was hungry, but I doubt I will make this again. Disappointed.
