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! 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? I have been crazy sick with allergies all week — Hence the multitude of medicine 😦
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! If you haven’t tried this Paleo fried rice, you have to. THIS WEEK. You are seriously missing out. 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
1/2 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! 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. This is about the only Whole30 treat I eat. Ants on a log..So tasty and simple. Love it! 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! Jared ordered big green egg grilled chicken breast on sautéed zucchini! He really enjoyed it. Jessica and Jason were the ones who told us about the Food Trucks! ❤ Lyndsey and Luke loved it, too! They are doing the Whole30 challenge with us! 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! 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! I also got this stuff. It has been AMAZING for me since I’ve been sick. I’ve had about 4 cups since Saturday… 😛 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! Proof 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!
My hunk of a husband grilled us some NY Strip’s. WOW. This was like……the best meal…ever.
So. Much. Food. Woah.
He was hungry!! The leaves are changing! And my heart is happy! 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! We watched the Auburn game, in style! Such a fun, versatile breakfast: OMELETTES! Jared’s had ham, sun-dried tomato, onion, and kale. Mine had a TON of kale, some sun-dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, onions, and carrots. I also added lots of garlic! We went to the movies and packed a snack: Dried pineapple (NO ADDED SUGAR) and almonds. Dried pineapple is the best thing ever. Lunch date @ Chipotle! Yum!!
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!
