Hi again everyone! So I just wanted to update on my Whole30, I have not given into temptation yet, Day 5 & going strong! :)
I am actually really enjoying the Whole30 challenge, although I must admit, it is much more time consuming than I had anticipated, between the meals, cleaning up and tidying the house and taking care of the little one, I don't get as much free time as usual, it's not like we ate bad, its just that I have to still please the non whole30 eaters in the house. hahaha
I have come to find a love and bigger appreciation for fruits and vegetables that I had started to lose, I am also enjoy things like nuts, eggs and meats more which is great in my books. I love that it is encouraging me to be more creative with my cooking, I don't know about you, but after a while meals get repetitive and sometimes rather boring but after starting The Whole30 challenge, my meals have been satisfying and refreshing. Which is great! :)
I have had no luck getting a non added sugar, plain nut butter from the store, which is driving me nuts, I was so hooked on peanut butter & honey on toast for breakfast or a snack, I also loved peanut butter in my smoothies and to dip fruit in. I miss it!
so, I'll go ahead and post some pictures of some of the foods I have been eating.
Vegetable fritata with strawberry halves & frothy banana milk.
Mash sweet potato, Green Curry fish with some veggies I had laying around.
Caulirice & Chicken Stir-fry
Turkey patties, salad & some mashed butternut squash.
I will post some recipes soon in case anyone would like any, so far I am in love with banana pancakes in the mornings! :)
Off to shower and sleep, G'night all!
