Hey y’all! It’s Caroline Fausel from the blog @OliveYouWhole and I’m SO ecstatic be with you this week! 🎉 I create Whole30 and Paleo recipes on my blog, along with Whole30 resources and some clean lifestyle + health tips 🌱 . I hear it *ALL* the time that “the Whole30 changed my life!” You know why? It’s because every time, in some way, it does. . It’s truly unbelievable to see *just how much more* the Whole30 has changed my life each time I do a @Whole30Recipes takeover- each time I reflect... I’m SO thankful that this is my third time!! Now not only am I blogging near full time (I’m also still a wife and mom of two- more on that in a sec!), but the Whole30 has changed my life so much so that now I’m also a Certified Whole30 Coach! 🏆 . Now I can help the Whole30 change your life, too! (well, in a more official capacity, at least!) 😉 . A little bit of my story: . I have known since I was 11 that my mission in life is to help people be healthy. Since then, it was a long process discovering for myself what "healthy" actually is... It’s SO hard to determine when everyone says something different 🤦🏽‍♀️ . My husband and I were vegetarian for almost 5 years... We read the Whole30’s first book "It Starts with Food" in May of 2014. It satisfied my husband’s need to see research and evidence, and we jumped into our first Whole30 June of 2014. We felt better than we had in years! Now, four years and 8 Whole30's (and some resets) later, we eat Whole30 or Paleo nearly all the time! . I’ve been married to Chaz for 5 years- he’s a doctor in his final months of residency in Atlanta, where we live with our two kiddos (Ella is 5 and Owen is 2.5)! We are SO excited to be moving to Denver in June for Chaz’s fellowship! . I'm so thankful I've found a way to help YOU be your healthiest self! I created my blog @oliveyouwhole to help others do Whole30 and live healthy lives to the fullest, so come on over and join me 👯 . Every day this week on @oliveyouwhole, I’ve partnered with some amazing #Whole30Approved brands to bring them to YOU! Today's giveaway?

Hi there, @wholedailylife back with MELTED SWEET POTATOES, a game changing recipe! They are the perfect combination of soft and fluffy on the inside with a chewy edge on the outside, and they’re so easy to make! // MELTED SWEET POTATOES: -2 large sweet potatoes, peeled -2-3 tbsp melted ghee (I used @tinstarfoods) -salt, to taste // 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 2. Slice the sweet potatoes into rounds approximately 1inch thick and place on the baking sheet. Drizzle with the ghee, then toss so that you coat all sides of the sweet potato rounds. Sprinkle with salt. 3. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, then flip and bake for 30 more. Continue baking until they’re golden and soft to your preference! // I make these in bulk and use them as a side to just about anything! They make a delicious accompaniment to a breakfast protein, and are beautiful when topped with a soft boiled egg. Curious about the other noms on this plate? That’s @nutcrumbs coated cod, zucchini with @sarifoodsco nutritional yeast, and crispy balsamic cabbage (this recipe is on my website)! // @wholedailylife #wholedailyliferecipes #wholedailylifeW30 Free PDF download | www.wholedailylife.com/w30 Website | www.wholedailylife.com


This SOFT BOILED EGG AND CHARRED VEGGIE BOWL will make all of your brunch dreams come true. Charred bell peppers, onion, and tomatoes, roasted potatoes, greens, avocado, soft boiled eggs, and LOTS of cilantro! On that note, are you a cilantro lover or hater? I love it, clearly. // SOFT BOILED EGG AND CHARRED VEGGIE BOWL: -1 bell pepper, de-seeded and sliced -1 yellow onion, cut in half and sliced -1 pint cherry tomatoes -1 pound potatoes (I like fingerling or Yukon gold) -eggs (I use @vitalfarms) -oil of choice (I used melted @dignitycoconuts coconut oil) -baby spinach -avocado and cilantro to garnish // 1. Start by chopping your potatoes into ½ inch chunks, tossing with about 2 tbsp oil and a hearty pinch of salt, and roast at 400 for about 40 minutes, until golden, stirring half way through. 2. When the potatoes are about half way done, heat a large skillet and a medium skillet over medium heat (cast iron is my preference!). When hot, add about 2 tbsp oil along with the sliced bell pepper and onion to the large skillet and 1 tbsp oil with the tomatoes in the other. Toss to combine, then let cook, undisturbed, for 5 minutes. Stir briefly, then let cook for another 5 minutes until tender. 3. While the veggies are cooking, bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add your eggs, reduce the heat so that the water is simmering, and set a timer for 7 minutes. When the timer is done, immediately transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water using a slotted spoon. Peel when cool enough to handle. 4. To plate, serve the potatoes, charred veggies, tomatoes, and a handful of greens with the soft boiled eggs, avocado, and cilantro! // I like to cook the veggies in large batches and use them to mix and match bowls like this all week long! // @wholedailylife #wholedailyliferecipes #wholedailylifeW30 Free PDF download | www.wholedailylife.com/w30 Website | www.wholedailylife.com


I know it’s St. Patrick’s Day and SAUERKRAUT is German, but it’s *kind of* got the green thing going for it, so I’m running with it. I (@wholedailylife) made my own sauerkraut for the first time this year and I don’t know that I’ll ever go back to store bought. It was so EASY and you only need two ingredients! // HOMEMADE SAUERKRAUT: -medium head of organic green cabbage -salt (1/2 tbsp per pound of cabbage) -32oz wide mouth mason jar, sterilized with boiling water and cooled -4 oz mason jar or glass fermentation weights, sterilized // 1. Wash your cabbage and discard the outermost leaves. 2. Remove one leaf whole and set aside. 3. Quarter and core your cabbage, then thinly slice or shred. Transfer to a large bowl. 4. Sprinkle the cabbage with salt, then, with clean hands, start to massage the salt into the cabbage (you can also pound it in, but I found it easier to use my hands) until the juices start to release. 5. Keep going until there is enough liquid to cover the cabbage, about 10 minutes. You might need to add a little bit of filtered water so that all of the cabbage is submerged. 6. Transfer to the clean mason jar, then tuck it all in with the whole cabbage leaf that you set aside earlier. Again, add a bit more water if necessary to keep everything submerged. 7. Set the small glass mason jar inside on top of the whole leaf to keep it under the liquid, then cover your jar with a coffee filter or cloth secured with a rubber band. 8. Let ferment at room temperature (around 70 degrees) for around 2-3 weeks, or until you like the taste, then transfer to the fridge. // What do you like to put sauerkraut on? My favorite is on soups and skillet hashes! // @wholedailylife #wholedailyliferecipes #wholedailylifeW30 Free PDF download | www.wholedailylife.com/w30 Website | www.wholedailylife.com


Hi! It’s Tracey of @wholedailylife with a ONE POT LAMB HASH recipe, because I’m sure we’re all tired of doing dishes at this point in our Whole30! This meal combines warming spices with the salty acidity of green olives for a robust flavor that will have you coming back time and time again. // ONE POT LAMB HASH: -1 pound ground lamb (I use @uswellnessmeats, don’t miss the giveaway on my page!) -4 cloves garlic, minced -1 tsp cinnamon -1/2 tsp allspice -1 tsp salt -1 tbsp dried oregano -2 zucchini, chopped into ½ inch chunks -2 yellow squash, chopped into ½ inch chunks -4 oz baby spinach, roughly chopped -1/4 cup water or bone broth -16 oz cauliflower rice -1 cup chopped green olives -1 cup chopped green onions, green parts only // 1. Set a large pot (make sure you have a matching lid) over medium heat and add the ground lamb. Cook until no longer pink, breaking it up with the spatula as you go. Mix in the garlic, cinnamon, allspice, oregano, and salt. 2. Add the chopped squash to the pot, along with the 1/4 cup water or broth and the cauliflower rice. Cover and let cook for 5 minutes, until vegetables are starting to soften. Stir in the chopped spinach, replace lid, and cook 3 more minutes, or until veggies reach desired texture. 3. Stir in the chopped green onions and green olives, then serve! // This recipe is #AIP if you leave out the allspice, and #lowFODMAP if you skip the cauli rice and add extra spinach. I personally love the flavor of lamb, but you could swap it out for beef too! It’s also posted up on my website, just head to the recipes tab under proteins! // What are your time saving strategies in the kitchen? // @wholedailylife #wholedailyliferecipes #wholedailylifeW30 Free PDF download | www.wholedailylife.com/w30 Website | www.wholedailylife.com
