Meal Plan January 29th

It’s the final days of Whole30! I hope you are feeling awesome, inspired, energized and ready to make some more long term changes to your health. This is my fourth round and in a lot of ways I eat this way majority of the time as you know by now. What I love about the program is it empowers you to find out how your individual body responds to different food. Over the years I found that I can handle small amounts of dairy and very little gluten. I can also eat corn in some forms i.e. tortillas but fresh corn really bothers me. These little changes have made a big difference in how I feel overall and I’m thankful for programs like the Whole30 for getting me more in tune with my body. With that said I will be going back to corn and cassava tortillas after this week and a glass or two of wine which are really the things I miss the most but I know in moderation I can handle well. Cheers to your health!

See you in the kitchen!

Meal Plan: September 11th

I love September! It’s by far my favorite month in Chicago with the best weather and farmers markets filled with the best of summer and the beginning of fall produce like apples and pears. It’s also my daughters birth month and I can’t wait to celebrate her third year of life this coming Saturday!

On another note I’m eating Whole30 mon-fri this week, partly because I need a mini reset and mostly because Teri from @nocrumbsleft is doing the @whole30recipes takeover for the week. I can’t promise I’ll be making all these dishes because I’m looking forward to making something new this week that she will post but here are some good recipes to add to your list whether you are doing a September Whole30 or not.

MONDAY: Chicken Meatballs in Red Curry

I haven’t made this one yet but I love the sounds of them! I’ll be making these with pork since I have ground pork on hand. I’ll also be eating these with cauliflower rice.

TACO TUESDAY: Chipotle Fish Taco Bowls

I love Alex and her recipes are awesome! Since I won’t be having tortillas this week I’m switching it out for a taco bowl and I’m not mad about it.
