Whole30 Challenge::Week One

So we are just rounding up week one of the Whole30! It has been an AWESOME week! I am going to share some of the incredible food we have been eating in this post. GET READY!

One of our favorite Paleo meals, even after 6 months, is STILL this sweet potato chili. It is SO easy to make, and tastes amazing, every time!IMG_3522 One of our favorite Paleo breakfasts is this egg muffin dish. EVEN easier than the chili, and tastes amazing. I mean, it’s bacon and eggs. Does it get better?IMG_3530 IMG_3532 IMG_3534IMG_3531 IMG_3535I have been crazy sick with allergies all week — Hence the multitude of medicine 😦
IMG_3536 All of the Whole30-ers have been posting their food on instagram! Follow the hashtag #duplooywhole30 to what they have been eating! I love seeing everyone’s yummy food! It makes me SO proud! IMG_3550 If you haven’t tried this Paleo fried rice, you have to. THIS WEEK. You are seriously missing out. IMG_3567 OR this chicken salad….Try both of them, this week. I promise you will fall in love. The chicken salad recipe:

1 Large can chicken breast

1 Avocado

1/2 Cup Sliced Grapes

1/4 Cup Raisins

Mash up the avocado in a bowl. Add the chicken breast (Drain it first.) Mix them together well. Add the grapes and raisins. BOOM! DONE! How easy!! I place mine on a bed of spinach! SOOOO GOOD! This makes 2 servings. TRY IT!IMG_3575 Okay, sweet potato hash…. I think we actually like this more than the bacon egg cups. We would probably eat it every morning if we had the time to make it!!! I can’t imagine anyone NOT liking this one. IMG_3581 This is about the only Whole30 treat I eat. Ants on a log..So tasty and simple. Love it! IMG_3625 We went to the Food Truck Alley in Alpharetta last week. There was a healthy food truck called Happy Belly, and we were VERY happy!! I ordered a smoked salmon salad with smoked bacon and granny smith apples. It was AMAZING! I can’t wait to go back! IMG_3669 Jared ordered big green egg grilled chicken breast on sautéed zucchini! He really enjoyed it. IMG_3671 Jessica and Jason were the ones who told us about the Food Trucks! ❤ IMG_3672 IMG_3673 Lyndsey and Luke loved it, too! They are doing the Whole30 challenge with us! IMG_3675 IMG_3677 We made THIS ham and veggie frittata this week and it was ON POINT! I’m so glad I’m a meat eater these days!IMG_3685 I got to go to Trader Joes this weekend!! I rarely go there just because I don’t have time to drive all the way to the nearest location. I loaded up on cauliflower, salsa, guacamole, oranges, sun-dried tomatoes, dried pineapple, sunflower seed butter, and chicken sausage!! Score!IMG_3704 I also got this stuff. It has been AMAZING for me since I’ve been sick. I’ve had about 4 cups since Saturday… 😛IMG_3705 Meet my little sister, Victoria. Isn’t she a beaut? Jared thinks we look alike, and I think he’s crazy. There I have two brothers as well, and none of us look alike, in my opinion. It’s crazy! All from the same parents, too! IMG_3718 IMG_3719Proof that you can find Paleo-friendly food at any restaurant. I ordered a greek salad with grilled chicken at a pizza joint last week. It was fabulous!
IMG_3729My hunk of a husband grilled us some NY Strip’s. WOW. This was like……the best meal…ever.
IMG_3737So. Much. Food. Woah.
IMG_3741 He was hungry!! IMG_3747 The leaves are changing! And my heart is happy!IMG_3751 We had dinner with some friends, and my friend PJ prepared a complete Whole30 meal for us! It was SOO GOOD. I copied down all of her recipes so I could recreate it. Yum! She is such an awesome cook! IMG_3766 We watched the Auburn game, in style! IMG_3771 Such a fun, versatile breakfast: OMELETTES! Jared’s had ham, sun-dried tomato, onion, and kale.IMG_3782 Mine had a TON of kale, some sun-dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, onions, and carrots. I also added lots of garlic! IMG_3783 We went to the movies and packed a snack: Dried pineapple (NO ADDED SUGAR) and almonds. Dried pineapple is the best thing ever. IMG_3787Lunch date @ Chipotle! Yum!!

IMG_3797 IMG_3798 We order chicken salads with grilled veggies, pico, salsa, and guacamole. Amazing. Yup!IMG_3799 Someone shaved his beard….. 😛IMG_3800

So that’s how our week went! Today is day 7 of the Whole30! So far so good! We are feeling great! It’s been a breeze so far! And it has been a BLAST doing it with all of the other people who signed up. I love getting everyone’s emails with updates about their progress and their yummy food!

Fall has just begun, and I am already LOVING it!

I hope you all have a great week! I’ll post again next week!

XOXO
