Day... 10.

Day 10! A third of the way there. So far so good. I have to admit, I'm craving some dark chocolate Bark Thins or a nice piece of fluffy bread. We have definitely had some food adventure in the last several days. Last night we were going to have cabbage wrapped egg rolls and cauliflower fried "rice". But the cauliflower was bad! So... now what. M had the bright idea to shred and fry potatoes. As weird as it sounds, potato fried "rice" was delicious. Something I'll probably do again. Here it is in a nutshell.

Sautee garlic, carrots and peas (we didn't do peas, not whole 30) in oil (I used olive). Remove or move to edge of pan and add shredded potatoes (use a cheese grater or a Cuisinart). Stir fry at high heat until some bits are crispy. Scramble two eggs and add to pan. Stir well. Flavor with ginger, coconut aminos (or soy sauce), and sesame oil. Yum! Loosely based on the actual recipe here.

I made a frittata for breakfast last week. Sadly, not my favorite.

I ran out of sweet potatoes! Running out of sweet potatoes and eggs is a tragedy doing a Whole 30.

One night last week I was in the mood to bake. I love to bake. I enjoy the process of creating something delicious. Well. Whole 30 says no sweets, no baked goods, nada. Maybe I cheated. But it was fun. Cooked fruit on top of chopped almonds, flax seed, and sunflower seed. It was a nice addition to my lunch the next day.

Doing the Whole 30 has been interesting and good so far. Both of us are feeling good and enjoying the fresh food, even with more time intensive prep. I definitely recommend you give it a whirl but plan and prepare!
