So this post is going to be very different than anything I’ve done before. And hear me when I scream I AM NOT A FOOD BLOGGER. These pictures are NOT pretty and I know that. I asked on instagram (I’m @mrscassierea over there) if y’all would be interest in seeing a Whole 30 meal diary and a ton of you said yes. So without further ado.
Also, you should note I forgot to take picture of every meal and these won’t be in the order that we ate them, but if you are interested in the Whole 30 this might give you some inspiration! And for those who aren’t familiar with the Whole 30 let me give you some background. For 30 days you are supposed to avoid eating dairy, sugar (natural or refined), grains (rice, wheat, quinoa, pasta, etc), legumes, corn, alcohol, tobacco, and anything that is an additive. Your safest bet for the 30 days are fresh vegetable and fruit + meat and eggs.
PRO TIP: While I’m doing the whole 30 I try and only cook a max of twice a day (dinner and possible breakfast). When I make dinner I make sure that there is enough so we can have leftovers for lunch the next day. I also love making breakfast casseroles so I can have a quick and easy breakfast throughout the week.
Breakfast – Pretty sure I made a breakfast casserole at the beginning of this round and it lasted me days 1-3. I used bell pepper, onion, spinach, compliant sausage (I had deer sausage already), potatoes and eggs. I just mix all of these together and bake at 350 degrees till the eggs are all the way cooked.
Lunch – I believe I made some sort of chicken and we had steamed broccoli, avocado and some fruit. Sorry I don’t have pictures for these two meals.
Dinner – Chicken Stir Fry with Cauli rice. Use sesame oil and coconut aminos to cook your chicken and top it all off with coconut aminos instead of soy sauce. Yum!
Breakfast – Casserole again
Lunch – Leftover stir fry
Dinner – Chipotle Salad with Carnitas and veggies, guac and pico. I worked late this night so I picked something up. John and Sadie had leftover stir fry again, I believe.
Breakfast – Two fried eggs on bed of spinach + half an avocado
Lunch – Y’all. I promise to do a better job next week, but I don’t remember. I think this was a busy day and I had a banana and RX bar on the go. I don’t recommend doing this.
Dinner – Bunless burgers + Oven fries + compliant ketchup.
Breakfast – Two fried eggs on bed of spinach + skillet potatoes + 1/2 apple and almond butter and some blackberries.
Lunch – Leftover burgers + fries.
Dinner – Taco Salad (Cilantro lime cauli rice, taco meat with homemade taco seasoning, dump ranch, avocado + Franks Hot sauce.
Breakfast – Egg scramble. Eggs, spinach, bell pepper, and onion topped with Franks + banana. No photo. Sorry 🙂
Lunch – Leftover taco salad.
Dinner – Green chile chicken (again, no photo). I found compliant Salsa Verde and poured it over chicken breasts and baked! We ate this with a salad, some compliant potato chips and small bowl of fruit.
Breakfast – Egg scramble. Eggs, bell pepper, spinach and onion topped with Franks + 1/2 apple & almond butter.
Lunch – Leftover green chili chicken.
Dinner – Pulled pork + Homemade BBQ sauce, fresh steamed green beans and baked potato with coconut milk cream.
Breakfast – Two fried eggs on bed of spinach + strawberries.
Lunch – Leftover BBQ.
Dinner – Leftover BBQ + Baked potato and salad
Breakfast – Egg scramble. Spinach + eggs topped with Franks.
Lunch – We ate out and I had a bunless hamburger.
Dinner – Turkey meatballs and marinara + steamed broccoli.
