Whole 30 Update

As you know, JRB and I have been doing the Whole30 program. It has challenged us in ways I didn’t know were possible. However, I’ve now learned:

  1. That cauliflower rice is a thing.
  2. How to cook cauliflower rice.
  3. Cauliflower rice is actually tasty.
  4. Butternut squash is tasty, but hard to cut.
  5. Mixing random things in a blender can go really great or really terrible. No in betweens.
  6. Late at night, my integrity slips when around cheese dip. (Yes, I cheated. Only once though.)
  7. It is possible to order healthy, whole foods at restaurants.
  8. Craving broccoli is possible.
  9. Planning and cooking meals ahead of time is a smart, time-saving solution.
  10. No matter how much I try, I can’t love black coffee.

Below is a list of some of our favorites so far (all paleo and whole30 approved)

Cauliflower rice

Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potatoes (minus the cheese)

Cowboy Breakfast Skillet

Cinnamon & Nutmet Banana Ice Cream

Chicken Apple Sausage Skillet

Egg & Sausage Breakfast Bites

Justin’s Almond Butter (found at Publix)

It’s now day 10, and I can honestly say it’s not as hard. My body isn’t craving sugar like it was on days 2-4 (That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t love a plate of cookies and creamer in my coffee though). I have had enough energy to exercise and carry on as normal. The hardest part now-a-days is planning enough ahead of time so I’m not caught with an empty pantry. Empty pantries mixed with hungry bellies lead to bad, bad things.

Happy Tuesday!
