Whole30 2017 – Days 6-10

IMG_0886

We are 10 days into the Whole30 and already our bodies are feeling so much better.  My husband has more energy and isn’t crashing every afternoon and I haven’t been feeling so bloated and yucky inside.  Yeah!  The process has definitely been easier since I have been making so many quick and simple meals.  And here they are:

Day 6

Breakfast

Green eggs (scrambled eggs with leftover steamed broccoli chopped up and mixed in)

Snack

Almond, cashew & raisin mix and an apple

Lunch

Leftover mashed potatoes, peas and shredded pork

Beverage

We relaxed on the patio with a couple of La Paloma‘s and they were refreshing as heck!  It was a treat after a week of water and unsweetened teas.

Dinner

Breakfast

2 hard-boiled eggs and an apple

Leftover meatloaf and mashed potatoes and peas

Snack

Dinner

Coconut Curry Chicken Meatballs over cauliflower rice and steamed green beans.  These were VERY good and had a mild enough curry flavor that my husband even enjoyed them.  The sauce was really amazing.

Fish Taco Bowls with Mango Salsa, Chipotle Aioli, and Coconut-Lime Cauliflower Rice 

This was a pretty involved meal with 6 different things to prepare, but it actually came together rather quickly (of course I wasn’t distracted by kids, otherwise it could have gone a lot differently).  It was DELICIOUS though and totally worth the effort.

Day 9

Breakfast

Baked yam topped with turkey taco meat, a fried egg and leftover mango salsa and guacamole

Snack

Peach

Lunch

Leftover fish bowl (I didn’t heat the first up, just ate it cold with everything else and it was dang good)

Dinner

Breakfast for dinner!  Our kids look forward to breakfast for dinner every other Wednesday, so Marc and I subbed pancakes for hashbrowns and we all enjoyed eggs, peaches, and homemade turkey sausage.  I don’t know where the recipe the turkey sausage originally came from, but my mom made me all the seasonings and gave me this for future reference:

The sausage was really great.  I omitted the oats and canola oil and everything still kept together fine.  This sausage was a tiny bit spicy for the kiddos.  They each ate one but didn’t touch the second patty I put on their plates.

Day 10

Breakfast

Eggs, peach, and sausage

Snack

Almonds

Lunch

My mom made me Golden Beet Soup.  You can also make this soup with red beets (golden beets can be difficult to find) and it’s just as good.  This is a recipe we’ve been making for years.  I wrote down the website when I wrote down the recipe originally, but when I looked up the site to get the link, it wasn’t there anymore.  So here it is (omit the to keep with Whole30):

Snack

Snap peas & guacamole

Dinner

We were on the run since we had soccer practice, so I picked up a rotisserie chicken from a store and utilized the salad bar to make a salad of kale slaw (dry) with green onions, blueberries, red wine vinegar, and olive oil.
