My Whole30: Week 4

Hi gang!

As a reminder, I started the Whole30 Program on January 2 and I'm posting once a week to share some of the recipes, while highlighting my favorite on my Wednesday posts. Some co-workers are also doingWhole30, and my husband, Andrew, eats most of what I make, too. Great support system!

Today marks Day 25 of the 30 day program and I still love it. I took a break on Saturday, though, I must admit. We took a mini vacation over the weekend! We took the train Saturday morning to Milwaukee to watch Georgetown beat Marquette in OT! It was AWESOME!!!!! I just love Milwaukee and I sure did celebrate the city. YUM! I don't feel guilty one bit and I went right back to eating right on Sunday. This is just further proof that I really think a paleo lifestyle is totally doable and I will adopt the 80/20 lifestyle after my Whole30 days are done. Essentially I will eat clean and healthy a vast majority of the time, and, on occasion, will indulge in the big three c's: Cheese, Chocolate and Cocktails. Trying to cut out things completely just isn't realistic for me.

Anyway, on to the recipes!
I froze a bunch from last week, so I have a lot of repeats for lunch this week (not complaining!). Here's what's coming for this week:

l | 2 | 3 | 4
  1. I am so thankful for this recipe, as this Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein completely satisfied a Chinese food craving! I added chicken to the recipe and loved the results! I have sooooo much left over, too! Yay! Also, the amount of ginger in the recipe is WAY too much in my opinion. The next time I make it I will halve it for sure. I substituted the brown sugar and instead used coconut sugar. Tasted good to me!
  2. Um hi, Shepherd's Pie. I am excited to make you. Yay for clean comfort food!
  3. I love everything Gina has to offer, and I am pumped to try her 3-ingredient Almond Butter Cookies recipe! I plan to substitute the sugar with coconut sugar. Fingers crossed it still tastes amazing!
  4. One of my friends from high school suggested that I try this Strawberry Banana Paleo Breakfast Bars recipe and I am so excited to give it a shot! I picked up some sugar free strawberry jam and the other ingredients on Sunday. It looks so tasty! I can't wait to make it!
How is your Whole30 going? We're almost finished! Go us!!

Do you have recipes that I should try? Please share!
