Shout out to everyone starting a #septemberwhole30 today! You are awesome and you got this! 💪🏼 I am doing my own modified version that is 20 days (we have an upcoming trip planned) and I’m including rice. 🍚
THIS #healthybreakfast is #whole30 though! It’s probably my all time favorite #whole30breakfast. The recipe for the sweet potato and sausage hash comes from @paleorunningmomma. If you are not following her, DO IT NOW. Seriously. The best. I served mine on a bed of arugula 🥗 and topped it with two scrambled eggs 🍳. I’m eating it with blueberries and (a first for me) tiger figs. I’ll be honest, I had to google how to eat them 😂 (you cut off the stem, but can then eat them whole). Verdict: not a fan. Am I missing something? Is there a much better way to eat them? Are mine not ripe enough? Give me the deets!
I’m off to finish my coffee with pumpkin spice @nutpods and hopefully check off some to do list items. Annnnd probably watch a few episodes of The Great British Baking Show. 💗😜 Have an awesome Labor Day friends!
This will be my #whole30lunch aaallllllll week long 😍. It’s one of my go-to favorite meals, takes very little time to put together, and is delicious! Chicken 🍗, sweet potato 🍠 with ghee and salt, and a side salad 🥗 with @tessemaes Avocado Ranch dressing. On Sundays I cook a small (around 4lb.) chicken in my instant pot, let it cool and get all the meat off. I use it all week for quick lunches. I usually microwave a sweet potato (wash, poke holes on all sides and cook on high 2-3 min, then flip and another 2ish minutes). While that is cooking I get the rest of my plate ready. Sometimes I heat the chicken, but I like it cold too. Lunch is ready in about 5 min! I’ve seen people prep sweet potatoes in advance too... so really this could take 2 min to put together. Win. Win. Win! 😊
Today’s #whole30breakfast is 2 scrambled eggs 🍳 on a bed of mixed greens 🥗 topped with @traderjoes Everything but the Bagel (EBB) seasoning. Served with pepper slices, cherries 🍒, and cotton candy grapes 🍇! My deeeeeelicious coffee ☕️ with @nutpods creamer not pictured, but much loved. Next up: workout. 💪🏼 I love how much more energy I have when I am doing a #whole30 (or in this case a #whole12). Each time I jump into one I seem to feel better sooner than the last time. My body loves this way of eating! 💗 Happy Monday, friends!
During my first #whole30 I had a hard time coming up with ideas of what to eat in social situations. Today my husband and I went to the movies for a #dateday 💗 and here are the snacks we bought on the way to the theater. This is definitely not a perfectly balanced mini-meal, but helped us not to feel deprived of the typical movie theater snacks. 📽cotton candy grapes
