Oh, Day 3, you were fraught with temptation and certain disaster. My start this morning was disorganized and chaotic to say the least. Instead of succumbing to the drive through option of Starbucks, I pulled off an intermittent fast instead. Thankfully, this is day 3, so I’m already feeling the hunger cravings subside, and I’m able to better control my eating.
I did eat out at Chili’s today. My two handsome men came to take me out to lunch, so how I could I turn THAT down? I wasn’t as tempted by their French fries as I thought I’d be either. And one confession…I had iced coffee today….with a small amount of heavy cream, but without any sweetener – real or artificial. So I’m choosing to have some grace for myself.
By dinner time, I was feeling back on track, my headache was gone, and I made a fabulous dinner which will bless me with lunches for a couple days.
So without further adieu, here is day 3 of my Whole30.
Breakfast: intermittent fast
Lunch: Chilis avocado burger plain with just lettuce and pickle (and avocado obviously). Side salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce.
Dinner: Dino eggs in a nest
3 lbs of ground beef
1 lb of pastured pork
2 cans tomato paste
Enough almond flour to help rolled meatballs retain shape.
Chopped red onion
Chopped baby bellas
Combine all ingredients and incorporate well. Makes a whole bunch of meatballs. Easy to freeze for later, or just reduce recipe as needed. Nearly impossible to mess up. Place rolled “Dino eggs” on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake at 375 for about 45 minutes turning over once.
To make the “nest”: quarter brussel sprouts and toss in olive oil and season with garlic, salt, and pepper. I roast in a toaster oven at 375 for 30 minutes, but you can place them in with your meatballs with similar results. (when I’m not doing whole30, I add cooked, chopped bacon and toss in the bacon drippings instead of the olive oil, but I’m out of my homemade bacon at the moment.)
Arrange your nest and serve with the eggs on top. Your choice to top with a soy and veg oil free spaghetti sauce. Publix makes an olive oil and basil marinara that is delicious! But crushed tomatoes would work fine as well.
So that’s it! Another day in the books.
