We made it to the weekend!!

Most people are thrilled to greet the weekend but for me it means back to work! Ive always considered myself very fortunate to have the job i have. I get to spend all week home with my family and keep a full time job. The downside to that is that i pretty much work the weekend away. I put in a full weeks work in 3 days. Those three days are the hardest to stick to my whole30 guidelines. Today i actually packed enough food and wasnt hungry! 
Omlete with pulled pork, onions, cilantro and salsa, pulled pork salad with lots of avocado and tomatillo salsa, an orang, paleokit, cherry pecan larabar, and gingerberry kombucha!!!

Day 9 and new house!

So i made it through my first week and am now trucking through week two! Ive been SO incredibly busy so ive made alot of quick easy foods and didint take many pictures. Heres a few things ive cooked up.

Cauliflower rice with mushrooms and onions, chicken and steamed broccoli

Late night tuna and cucumbers with tropical pepercorns and salt from trader joes. I learned   that most tuna ccontains soy which is no bueno for whole 30 so if you participate look for that! 

Nom Nom Paleo's Cracklin' Chicken!! Jesse loved this! 

I've been so busy because WE ARE MOVING!! That's right! No more apartment for this girl! We are just renting this house but i am SO excited to be back in a house. Abigale is thrilled and i think Owen is too. He is loving the yard already :)

Friday day 4

SOoooo today i had to work. I was worried because most of my coworkers eat junk. Wouldn't ya know an hour after arriving my boss comes begging me to eat some of the donuts he brought. I resisted!! Though it was hard. I packed what i thought was plenty of food but i was damn hungry by time to go home

Breakfast was am orange, quish
And bacon! Linch was leftover soup with zuchinni noodles, and i took an emergency larabar and some fresh strawberries and black berries with whipped coconut milk. 

I have to say the whipped coconut milk was delish but my tummy hurt not too long after eating it

3 days down (thursday )

For breakfast i started by accidently cheating.. kind of on purpose. One aspect of whole30 is to change the way we view food. To see it more as fuel than eating for pleasure. This is especially hard for me because i love food. I made banana pancakes using only banana, eggs,and cinnamon. All of the ingredients are whole 30 compliant BUT you're not supposed to make faux unhealthy foods. I didnt know this until i had already planned to make them so i went ahead and made them anyway

Since my breakfast wasnt hearty i was hungry by lunch. i made tuna salad using avocado and had with some apples

Lastly, for dinner i made chicken ZOODLE soup and it was so good!

Yesterday began my first whole30. It is a program designed to get our bodies healthy, eliminate toxins, and detox from sugar. During the course of the whole30 you eat no grains, sugar, alcohol, or legumes. By sugar i mean no sugar, honey, syrup, stevia, xylitol, etc. NO sweeteners of any kind except for limited amounts of pure unsweetened fruit juice. For more info on whole30 visit

Day one breakfast: eggs and paleo cereal with unsweetened almond milk 

Day one dinner: baked tilapia with rainbow carrots and fresh green beans.
