Our power unexpectedly went out for nearly 8 hours and so I had to toss most food out. I was able to re-stock this morning (the non-whole 30 compliant items are for the kiddos).

🤤🤤🤤 My #whole30dinner tonight is the 💣! Instant pot carnitas on a mashed sweet potato, a side salad with @tessemaes ranch dressing, pineapple, raspberries, and blueberries. SO colorful! For you recipe lovers: 1 tbsp paprika 1 tsp chili powder 1 tsp salt 1 tsp ground cumin 1 tsp oregano 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp pepper 1/4 tsp coriander 2lb pork tenderloin 1 cup chicken broth Mix the spices together and rub all over the pork. Place in the instant pot with 1 cup chicken broth. Cook on high pressure for 30 minutes- or 25 if your pork is 1.5 pounds. Naturally release steam for 5 minutes, then quick release. Shred meat. Serve on tortillas, potatoes, lettuce wraps, or even on its own. Enjoy! ❤️ #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Today’s breakfast represents my #foodfreedom. I loooooove cheese on my eggs. Thankfully, dairy doesn’t seem to have any negative effects on me- at least none that I’ve noticed yet. I sautéed about 2 cups of spinach to go on the side. #notwhole30 #turnnorthandthrive

I tend to thrive when I don’t have to spend much time thinking about what’s for lunch- and if it’s quick and easy. I usually plan 2-3 different lunches for the week and often eat the same thing for several days in a row. Another rotisserie chicken topped salad with @tessemaes avocado ranch today. #whole30 #whole30lunch #turnnorthandthrive

One of my favorite quick and easy #whole30 meals is a salad topped with rotisserie chicken. This literally took me 30 seconds to prepare. A couple big handfuls of mixed greens, rotisserie chicken and a drizzle of @tessemaes avocado ranch dressing (my fav!). If I have time or I’m feeling fancy I add any other veggies that are prepped (peppers, onion, cucumber, etc...) and/or bake a sweet potato to have on the side. #whole30lunch #turnnorthandthrive

Keeping it simple with this #whole30 breakfast! Three scrambled eggs topped with Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning (SO GOOD), and a side of blueberries. Missing some veggies, but my lunch plan includes lots, and I’m not feeling the veggies this morning, so I’m calling it good. 😊 #whole30breakfast #turnnorthandthrive

Last nights #Whole30 dinner! Quite possibly one of the easiest dinners to make! I threw 4 frozen chicken breasts in the instant pot with about 3/4 cup water and set it to cook for 14 minutes. While that was going I chopped up some yellow potatoes (no peeling!) and boiled them in water and then steamed some frozen green beans. As a side note, Costco sells a five pound bag of delicious organic green beans! I like to keep them on hand for an easy veggie side dish. When the chicken is done I quick release the pressure, empty the water, shred and add a drizzle of @tessemaes bbq sauce. By then the potatoes are ready to mash- I add ghee, a little of the potato water, and salt. Takes about 30-40 min total from start to finish. AND makes great leftovers too. #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Sweet Potato Hash with Sausage and Eggs. This breakfast has been one of my absolute favorites EVER. I make a big batch of the hash at the beginning of the week and separate it out into individual portioned containers- reheat and top it with a couple eggs, and breakfast is done. Check out @paleorunningmomma for the recipe. While you’re there, check out the other recipes on her blog- it’s basically a treasure trove of Whole30 goodness. 🍳 #februarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

🎉🎉🎉 What a huge accomplishment! This was my third time and I can honestly say I’m still learning new things- and each time has been so different. Surprisingly, this was not my easiest round. I struggled more with cravings and didn’t experience tiger blood as quickly as last time I did Whole30. This time I exercised more self control, made it through some tempting foods at events, and tried several new recipes. I felt good (and still do)! Looking forward to the continued gains I make in February! #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 30: M1: banana chia pudding with almonds M2: (not shown): collagen protein smoothie with mixed fruit and spinach M3: butternut squash noodles with compliant marinara sauce I hoped I’d be able to finish on a strong note, but protein is still not very appealing to me after being sick. I was still compliant though, and am counting that as a win. And hey, today is Day 30!! 🎉 I’m not planning on stopping now though- I’m going to continue for February and practice food freedom- which I started reading (“Food Freedom Forever”) last night. #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 28: M1: smoothie (pictured is the mix of fruit/veggies I used) I added collagen peptides, spinach, and coconut water M2: rotisserie chicken with broccoli and mashed potatoes I felt much better today! Not 100%, but my appetite is coming back a bit. Again, smoothies are not recommended on Whole30- I am choosing to have them because it is the only thing that sounds half way appealing and it seems like I can stomach more liquidy things better. While I’ve been sick I’ve just wanted carbs- but as my appetite is coming back, I’m craving healthy foods again. This is a big victory for me! #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 26: M1: smoothie with pineapple, mango, spinach, banana, almond milk, and collagen peptides M2: egg bake with an apple M3: Lara Bar M4: 1/2 banana Today was ROUGH. I woke up to find my four year old sleeping in the middle of the family room floor- walked to the kitchen and stepped in puke. 😷 The day was basically full of rest, but I felt worse and worse as the day went on. I’m thinking it was mostly just mental- I get really anxious when my kiddos are sick, and I had little appetite. I was able to stay compliant, but it definitely wasn’t my best day of eating. I went to a baby shower in the evening and felt much better there (and drank some tea). I needed the break. My husband let me sleep in until 11am this morning too, which was SO needed. I’m realizing that stress makes me want carbs. All I wanted yesterday were some of my kids crackers. Nothing else sounded appealing at all. Giving myself grace and proud I didn’t give in. Also praying health over my family so no one else gets sick! #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

I felt pretty unmotivated today. I didn’t really accomplish much, other than caring for the kiddos.

My baby slept 12 hours (in a row) last night! I’m hoping that trend continues. Other than that I felt pretty good. I’m getting a little tired of all the dishes though- combined with winter it’s making my hands so dry.

Day 21: M1: sausage/sweet potato/peppers/onion hash with scrambled eggs, also coffee with @nutpods M2: bbq shredded chicken on a mixed greens salad with peppers and cucumber and a mandarin orange M3: buffalo chicken stuffed spaghetti squash with @tessemaes Ranch dressing Still feeling pretty good, but did crave some Mac and cheese that I made for my kiddos. I was looking forward to dinner aaaallllll day. Pretty much the perfect meal to have while watching the football game. I did have some coconut water with pineapple juice with it, which is not recommended, but it paired well with the heat of the buffalo sauce. The drink has no added sugar and only compliant ingredients- but obviously it is not something I would drink daily. I requested Food Freedom Forever from the library and am excited to read it as I finish up the last days of my Whole30. #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Other NSVs I’ve noticed lately: my clothes are fitting better, I have less anxiety, I have fewer sugar cravings, and improved self control. #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 16: M1: spinach/bacon/mushroom/onion quiche with a sweet potato crust; also coffee M2: zesty almond flour crusted chicken with Tessemaes ketchup, sweet potatoes, and a side salad M3: buffalo chicken spaghetti squash bake with blueberries Dragging a bit today due to staying up until after midnight assembling ikea furniture 🤦🏽‍♀️, but now we have some awesome looking shelves. I’ve been having a hard time drinking enough water lately and need to up my intake! That is my goal for tomorrow. #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 15: M1: scrambled eggs, bacon, mixed greens, cucumber, cantaloupe, coffee M2: zuppa toscana soup M3: zesty chicken fingers breaded in an almond flour and spices mix, Tessemae’s ketchup, mixed steamed veggies, apple slices Post-workout: chia banana pudding with almonds Another fabulous day- and SO productive. I love that I have the energy to get so much done these days. Yay for tiger blood! 🐅🔥🙌🏼 #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 14: M1: coconut banana chia pudding topped with almonds and banana slices M2: zuppa toscana soup (SO good) M3: buffalo chicken stuffed spaghetti squash- a new recipe I tried and wow- SO good. It made a large serving and I was only able to eat half- it will be a great meal or post work out meal for tomorrow! Today was great! I’m to the point where it’s feeling more “normal” to eat/prep Whole 30 compliant. I needed a day off eggs, so I made a chia pudding for breakfast. I was surprised how sweet it tasted to me. My taste buds must be changing 🙌🏼. I made it to church on time, there was a beautiful snowfall, and the Vikings won in the last second of the game! The buffalo chicken meal was amazing and perfect football food. I was able to get everything prepped today and I’m planning to hit the gym tomorrow. #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 13: M1: eggs, bacon, and lettuce. Coffee with nutpods creamer M2: butternut squash noodles with meat sauce and a side salad M3: sheet pan dinner with chicken, sweet potatoes, baby yellow potatoes, green beans, zucchini, and onions High energy in the morning and then so tired in the evening. It was another long night with the baby, so I’m guessing that’s why. I got my shopping 90% done and will prep for the week tomorrow. #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 12: M1: scrambled eggs (with Trader Joe’s EBB seasoning) with bacon, lettuce, cucumber, avocado, and apple slices, also coffee with Nutpods creamer M2: beef stew M3: butternut squash noodles with meat sauce and a side salad Today felt great! AND it was date night which was even better and the perfect reward after a long week! My energy keeps climbing despite being up with a teething baby 3-4 times each night lately. I think this might be my favorite part of whole 30- what you eat has such a huge impact on how you feel, that it can even combat lack of sleep. It’s a good reminder to me that it’s even MORE important to eat well when I’m tired, even though my instinct is to get a pastry and sugary coffee drink in the drive thru on the way to our morning plans. #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 11: M1: sausage/peppers/onion/sweet potato hash with eggs and mixed greens M2: grass fed beef burger with sweet potato rounds, mixed greens, Tessemae’s ketchup, and plantain chips M3: instant pot beef stew Today was another good day. I’ve noticed that I have a lot more energy in the mornings lately. #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 10: (1/3 of the way! 🎉) M1: sausage/peppers/sweet potato hash with two scrambled eggs and a big handful of mixed greens M2: bacon garlic chicken spaghetti squash casserole with an apple M3: pulled pork on a big salad with @primalkitchenfoods ranch dressing and topped with cucumber. Pictured is my drink- coconut water with a splash of pineapple juice. My favorite “mock tail” for when I’m doing a Whole 30. Yesterday was great and today I was wanting to quit 😜. More cravings for sure today, and I’m tired from being up with a teething baby last night. Hoping for a better day tomorrow. #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 9: M1: sausage/onion/pepper/sweet potato hash on greens topped with two eggs. Also, coffee with @nutpods creamer. I ended up skipping the banana- I was too full! M2: chicken, sweet potato, side salad M3: bacon garlic and chicken spaghetti squash casserole Today was great! My energy is definitely on the upswing. I ran out to get some whole 30 staples tonight and half the things on my list were sold out. I guess there are a lot of people doing a whole 30 right now! 🤷🏽‍♀️ #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 8: M1: on the go smoothie with banana, spinach, egg white protein powder, blueberries, cherries, and coconut water M2: shepherds pie with a side salad and mixed fruit M3: bbq pulled pork with a sweet potato, salad, and blueberries The verse shown is displayed on my fireplace mantle and has been very inspiring for this round. A great daily reminder! I can feel tiger blood slowly coming on- I had more energy today! #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

Day 7: M1: sausage/bacon/hash brown egg bake on mixed greens M2: chipotle salad bowl- I ate it too quickly, so I only have a pic of the bag 🤷🏽‍♀️ M3: salad with chicken, cucumbers, and mixed peppers with mixed fruit I felt pretty good today. Not tiger blood good, but regular good. We celebrated my sons birthday today and it turns out I can survive baking and decorating a cake without eating it. Also, ordering a bunch of pizza, smelling it, and not eating it. Exercising those self control muscles for sure! 💪🏼 #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive

I started planning/shopping for next week today. The plan is to prep tomorrow. #januarywhole30 #whole30 #turnnorthandthrive
