Whole30 Day 14

Normally I know what I've eaten all day.  If I'm missing out on green veggies then I can squeeze them in.  Honestly, I had no idea what I ate today.  Everything was Whole30 but it was so random.  I was trying to get rid of stuff in the fridge and eating things I made for meal prep at the same time.


Three eggs, peppers, onions, and broccoli cooked in ghee.  Plus coffee with homemade almond milk.

I ended up sharing a lot of it with LB even though I didn't want to.


Salt and vinegar cabbage with two leftover applegate hotdogs.  Topped with mustard.  Strange but really good!

After lunch I started on some minimal meal prep.  I didn't like it but I took everyone's advice and gave up the whole week meal prep thing.  Instead of prepping for the week I just prepped basics and wrote a note of possibilities on the fridge.

First up was meatballs.

I made my own recipe for Italian meatballs just to make sure it was still good.

I forgot how much I love those little guys!

They really are an amazing meatball!

I also made a frittata for breakfast so I don't fall in the rut I was in last week.

Frittatas are easy.  I got the idea from Everyday Paleo but have kind of made it my own.  I just brown up some meat with peppers, onions, and grated sweet potato.  I sprinkle everything with taco seasoning.

Then I pour 6 scrambled eggs over the top.

Bake covered at 350 until it sets and then uncovered until it gets a little brown on top.

So good and it reheats great!

I also:

• Made sure all veggies were cleaned, chopped, peeled and ready to go
• All fruit was washed
• Made massaged kale


RANDOM!  See!  I wasn't overly hungry because I ate three of those meatballs I made off the baking sheet.  Ridiculous I know.  I put some of the beef I used for the frittata aside for dinner.  I have an endless supply of salt and vinegar cabbage so I reheated that plus the beef and topped it with fresh salsa and avocado.  Plus roasted carrots and sweet potato with coconut butter.  Whew.


How I feel:
I felt amazing today!  Not endless crazy energy, not tired, not blah, not overly happy... I just felt like me which is exactly how I want to feel.  I felt content if that describes it better.
