And we have one week of whole30 under our belts. 3ish to go… Really missing cheese and chocolate and date night cocktails. But overall this whole30 thing really does make you feel good.
Slow Cooker Meatballs over Zoodles (WW Spaghetti for kids)
notes: not gonna lie. these were a little bit dry and i really missed my parmesan cheese. but definitely a recipe worth working at to improve…
notes: made this without the eggs and avocado, and it was still good. with those things, it would be even better, i’m sure.
Cilantro Lime Chicken w/ Avocado Salsa
notes: this is a recipe I’ve made in the past, pre whole30. the chicken marinade is delicious — so tender and flavorful. I usually cheat and buy Trader Joe’s guac just because it’s so easy (and whole30 approved!).
Carrot Raisin Pineapple Salad
notes: super quick and easy to throw together and kids liked it too, so win win.
Cauliflower Rice/White Rice for kids
notes: the riced cauliflower in the TJ’s produce section is saving me. just saute with a little bit of olive oil for like 5 minutes and it’s a great base. Also, the frozen basmati or jasmine rice in the frozen section for the kids. Love being able to pop a bag in the microwave for perfect rice 3 minutes later. Thank you TJ’s!
Baked Mahi Mahi w/ Roasted Vegetables
notes: this was delicious and flavorful. I subbed olive oil for the avocado oil. And opted for making my own “italian seasoning” with basil + oregano.
Roast Bacon Apple Brussel Sprouts
notes: this was delicious. definitely will be making again.
Roasted Sweet Potato Fries
notes: sweet potatoes are my new best friend. peel and cut in strips. toss with some olive oil, salt and pepper. roast at 425 for 30-45 minutes.
Roast Vegetable Medley w/ Sausage
notes: omitted the mushroooms on this one. it was super easy to throw together. always love having dinners that cook on one pan.
Garlic Roasted Green Beans w/ Shallots + Almonds
notes: another winner of a side dish. have never roasted green beans before, but will definitely be doing so from now on.
Leftover Cauliflower/Regular Rice
Homemade Pizza for Kids
date night | Elevation Burger wrapped in Lettuce
Greek Chicken Salad (on croissants for kids)
notes: I made the Greek Seasoning to have on hand, and it was a tasty addition to the chicken salad. We had it over a bed of salad greens. Added a splash of balsamic vinegar.
Roasted Sweet Potato Fries
On the Side : Sliced Cantalope
TJ’s Turkey Burgers/Hot Dogs
notes: the turkey burgers in the frozen section are going to be on rotation here. Today we topped with guacamole, bacon and TJ’s pico de gallo. Served it on a bed of greens to get some extra veggies in.
Mixed Green Salad w/ Olive Oil+Balsamic
TJ’s Fries (for kids)
