Whole30: First Post

Hi gang!

On January 2 I started the Whole30 Program. Some co-workers are doing, it too, which is awesome. So far, so good! Granted, it's only been a couple of days and I haven't been in social situations, so I'm sure this will get tougher. Hopefully not, but it's probable.

I thought I'd share some of the recipes I'm trying in case anyone out there is looking for some good ones. I'll update about once a week and highlight my favorites on my Wednesday posts.

Sound good? Cool.
Let's get started.

By the way, I say "we" a lot. My husband, Andrew, is eating all of this, too!

So far, here's what we have had or have made for the upcoming week:

  1. My favorite recipe, Mexican Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas from Gina at We luckily had this frozen so we defrosted it to have something quick knowing we'd be cooking a bunch. It's DELICIOUS!! So great over a salad with homemade guacamole. 
  2. Easy Paleo Pot Roast (Whole30 Compliant) from I Breathe...I'm Hungry. We are having this for dinner tonight! I'm sure it will be amazing. Pot Roast in a crock pot is a no-brainer.
  3. Sausage & Egg Breakfast Bites from Mark's Daily Apple. I made this today and will eat it for breakfast throughout the week. I snuck a bite once it cooled and YUM! Delicious breakfasts are on the way! For this recipe I used spinach, onions, red pepper and Aidells Chicken and Apple sausage.
  4. Turkey Avocado Wraps from All Things G&D. This is easy enough to quickly put together for work lunches. I'm sure it's awesome, considering turkey and avocado are two of my favorite things. I'm using Applegate Naturals Roasted Turkey Breast.

I've been loading my Healthy Foods Pinterest Board with tons of recipes that I know I'll try long after the 30 days are done!

So far the only things I'm missing are pop and caffeine. I don't like black coffee or tea, so this is the biggest issue for me. I love water, but only drinking that gets old quickly!

Are you doing Whole30? Have you ever done it? Do you have recipes that I should try?
Please share!

Have a good one!

Oh man, I'm so excited for you! Even though I've never made it the full 30 days, I've always really enjoyed the results. I ran into trouble when I didn't plan ahead. Meal prepping/planning definitely helps - so it looks like you're on the right track. Good luck!

I'm drooling over these meals! I've never done an actual program but I'm going to look into the Whole 30 more - this is food I could actually eat! Good luck :)
