Week 3 is usually when I’m ready to quit – the newness of the task has worn off and all I can think about is sushi and margaritas. So, it’s a good thing I’m stubborn, otherwise, I probably would give in and throw all progress out the window. Thankfully, there is only a week left, and we happened to time this round of Whole30 perfectly so that we can splurge when we travel to DC at the end of the month.
Side note: We have never been to DC, so if you have any recommendations of places to eat and things to see, send them to me!
This week, you will definitely see some of our favorite repeat recipes, just because they are easy and we simply never get tired of eating them. You will also find a couple of new recipes that we tried, and will absolutely never make again.
Breakfast: Eggs Benedict (you can find a Whole30 approved hollandaise sauce in the book) with avocado and homemade hash browns.
Lunch: Protein Salad. The Whole30 book gives a ton of examples. So whether you are using chicken or shrimp, mix in different fruits, vegetables, and nuts.
Dinner: Crock Pot Chili Verde.
Breakfast: Fried eggs with bacon.
Lunch: Leftover Chili Verde, which is definitely still delicious reheated.
Dinner: Sweet Potato Soup with Mexican Tuna Boats (Both of these recipes came from the Whole30 book, and it was the first time we made them….and the last. You might enjoy them, but I just couldn’t get past the first few bites.)
Breakfast: Banana with cashew butter and cinnamon.
Lunch: Chicken Salad.
Dinner: Apple Cranberry Walnut Salad (be sure to cut the feta) with Homemade Dressing.
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with sausage, topped with hot sauce.
Lunch: Hot links with mustard and a bowl of fruit.
Dinner: Pork Chops with Mashed Potatoes and Asparagus.
Breakfast: RXBAR with black coffee and unsweetened coconut milk.
Lunch: Chicken Salad.
Dinner: Whole30 Chili.
Breakfast: Spicy Eggs and Potato Skillet. Just make sure you cut out the cheese. This meal is honestly good for any time of the day. Just depends on if you like spicy food for breakfast.
Lunch: Almond, Berry, Grilled Chicken Salad (minus the feta).
Dinner: Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries (minus the parmesan)
Breakfast: Homemade hash browns with bacon and fried eggs.
Lunch: Leftover Whole30 Chili.
Dinner: Taco Bowls!!
