Through the Paleo diet/lifestyle and the Whole30 my family, friends and I are becoming healthier! We are getting to our healthy weights, moving more, sleeping better and have better energy. We are suffering fewer mild medical issues and are just overall feeling better every day!

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen these days. We cook and enjoy a lot of great food that's both tasty and healthy. I hope you'll find some recipes here that you'll enjoy!

Week 3 Wrap-Up

Well, our 3rd weekend of our first Whole30 went pretty well.  We ate at Red Lobster Friday night and both really enjoyed our meals.  So much so that we were still talking about it Saturday afternoon.  He had NY Strip and Lobster with broccoli.  I had a ribeye with crab legs.  We both had salads with no cheese or croutons and we both skipped the butter with our seafood.  

On Saturday we had a house guest from Wisconsin!  For dinner we enjoyed grilled ribeyes, sauteed-shrimp (mine didn't look anything like that picture!), sweet potato fries, sauteed onions & peppers, tomato/cucumber salad and creamed cucumbers.  Our steaks were a little charred so we smothered them in delicious homemade mayo, which our house guest raved about!  Husband did give in and drink 2 beers on Saturday and he felt like crap after it and the next day (no surprise).

Left: w/blueberries
Right: without blueberries 

Before our guest arrived on Saturday, Husband and I had a little bit of banana ice cream with some blueberries added.  I put the rest in the freezer to see if it would be good after being frozen.  We all had a little of it on Sunday.  It was good, but was frozen too solid, we had to defrost in in the micro for just a few seconds and then it was perfect!  We also had Turkey Pizza Burgers:

1lb of lean ground turkey mixed with:
chopped green bell pepper, chopped onion, 
garlic powder, Italian seasoning, marinara sauce.  
Grilled and then topped with more
 marinara sauce.  Yum!

On Sunday, keeping true to the tradition of the past few weeks, we cooked and cooked and now have a fridge full of meals to eat for the week including:

Pork Roast (with saurkraut)
Beef Stew (Husband made it up as he went, so I have no recipe)
Buffalo Chicken Salad (I really love this stuff!)
Chicken Salad (chicken breasts, mayo, grapes, s&p)

After Week 1, we  just make a list of the meals we want for the next week, buy the ingredients and then cook or pre-cook everything on Sunday.  It's worked out really well!  I only end up cooking one or two nights a week now and there are always healthy meals in the fridge for either of us to grab at any time!
