{Whole30} Day 14

Breakfast:
As you can see, this was not an “ideal” breakfast. Not very heavy on the protein, nor heavy on the veggies. And, I definitely felt it! I was hungry less than two hours after eating. Compared to one of my better breakfasts which can last me 4+ hours. Lesson learned! I had leftover veggie fritatta, avocado, and a bowl of pineapple and blueberries.

Lunch:
Leftover pot roast from last night.

Dinner:
Dinner needed to be quick and easy tonight! I filled a skillet with diced sweet potatoes and sliced chicken apple sausage. I wanted to get them good and crispy (I’m not a fan of soft sweet potatoes). A pan on sauteed green beans on the side (add a little coconut aminos + orange juice right at the end to give it a nice flavor kick!). This was actually REALLY good! Even Bret loved it (he usually hates the chicken sausage).

{Whole30} Day 12

Breakfast:
Veggie Frittata and sweet potato hashbrowns (also avocado on the side, not pictured). I ordered 10 POUNDS of these sweet potatoes from my food co-op (Azure Standard). Annnnnd they sent me the white kind. I don’t even know if they carry the orange kind, but I was pretty disappointed that I ended up with the white kind. And now I have about 9.5 more pounds of ’em sitting on my shelf. Anyone want some?

Lunch:
Spinach Salad with warm bacon grease dressing. Mmmmhmmm that’s as good as it sounds. Love this recipe, and I added avocado and tomato this time.

Dinner:
Grace and I got to continue our favorite activity of Eating Out. We went to Downriver Grill, one of my favorite Spokane Restaurants. I was excited to see that they revamped the place a bit (updated look) and changed the menu a bit. Was it just me, or have they lowered their prices?! I mean, $24 for a NICE grassfed Steak with veggie + starch sides? Pretty impressive. And yes, it was delicious. And yes, I subbed my starch for a salad. FTW. (No pic unfortunately. It was dark in there, not to mention I forgot).

{Whole30} Day 5

Breakfast:
It was time to find something new to add to breakfast. I tried some sweet potato hash browns, and that did the trick! Along with the usual: eggs, sauteed veggies, and avocado.

Lunch:
Lunch was MORE leftovers of the Chicken Pot Pie. Ok, over it now! Also made a big salad with carrots, cucumber, tomato, avocado, and oil and vinegar. (sorry, no pic)

Dinner:
Bret grilled up some big steaks with asparagus on the side. This is a dinner that we have often, and not to mention it’s delicious, so it didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything at all! (again, no pic. It was late and dark and I was lazy).
