Whole 30 Recipes Week One + Lilly Pulitzer Giveaway


 Good morning love bugs, and happy hump day!! 

I have had a lot of requests to share my Whole 30 journey and all of my meals with you guys, so I thought I would break it down into by the week to make it easier. 

Even if you are not doing Whole 30, you may want to try some of these recipes. They're all loaded with protein, low on carbs, and contain absolutely no artificial ingredients! That being said, they are pretty much as healthy as it gets and they still taste pretty darn good. 

I'll start with breakfast since this one seems to be the most challenging for everyone (myself included). At first I was craving all things sweet in the morning, but this week I've started craving more protein so I've pretty much eaten just eggs, bacon, and avocado.

Breakfast



Compliant Bacon // Organic grass fed eggs // Avocados 




Dinner

This may seem a little out of order with me doing dinner before lunch, but on most days we just eat leftover dinner for lunch with slight modifications. So, I thought I would share dinner with you all first and then lunch. 

Strip Steak Salad 

For this recipe, we just marinated an organic grass fed strip steak with avocado oil, salt, and pepper. Then, I added in mini heirloom tomatoes (from Trader Joe's), orange bell pepper, avocado, and this salad dressing.




Grass fed ground beef burgers // Butternut Squash Zig Zags (bought pre-cut at Trader Joe's) 






Crock Pot Basil Chicken Curry (and we served ours over cauliflower rice)


Chicken Burgers with salsa and guacamole (from Trader Joe's) with baked sweet potato slices. 
For the sweet potatoes, I used my spiralizer /slicer to cut them and then just added avocado oil with a little salt and pepper. Then, I baked them at 375 for about 20 minutes. 


Lunch

Lunch is probably the easiest for me. I'm not near as hungry as I am at dinner, and like I said earlier,  we usually have leftovers from the night before. 

Avocado Chicken Salad (this time I poached my chicken and added celery) 


Leftover Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili with half of a fresh avocado. 


Leftover Chicken Burger lettuce wraps 


Also, below are a few things you may want to grab to make your Whole 30 journey a lot easier! And really, even if you aren't doing Whole 30, these things will just make your everyday health and cooking life easier :)
