Whole30 - Day 13

Hello everyone! Hope you're having a lovely weekend so far.

This morning when we woke up it was storming out -- dark grey skies and thunder and lightening and rain beating down outside. It was the perfect excuse to lounge in bed for awhile. I don't think I got up until after 10! So lazy. So awesome.

By the time I did get up, shower and walk the dog, I was starving. I decided on scrambled eggs, sardines, and avocado. Don't knock it -- this combo is AWESOME.

Two scrambled eggs, half a can of sardines, and half an avocado. After I snapped the picture, I stirred it up into a big mess, sprinkled with sea salt, and devoured.  

I spent most of the day cleaning our kitchen. We had some drawers and cupboards that were out of control. They're still not perfect, but at least the doors close now! 

I didn't even think about food for the whole afternoon, but by dinner time, I was ready to eat something -- fast. I decided on stir fry, since we already had everything in the house. I used two chicken breasts that were already cooked, and added onion, broccoli, eggplant, and a few yellow beans. 

I also made a delicious stir fry sauce to top this. 

  • 2 tbsp. of coconut aminos*
  • 1 tbsp. sunbutter
  • 1 tsp. garlic
  • 1 tbsp. of clementine juice (orange juice would work, we just happened to have a bag of clementines in the fridge)
  • 1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper (or more if you like spicy)

* Soy and tamari sauce aren't allowed on the Whole30, so they recommend coconut aminos as a substitute. I really liked it! Kinda like soy sauce, but a bit sweeter, which is often what you want for stir-fries anyway. 

For dessert, I had a bowl of banana soft-serve. I feel like I should try to limit how often I eat this -- it's delicious but maybe too delicious. Or at least, too big a sugar hit for what I'm supposed to be doing. 

This was one frozen banana, a few frozen cherries, a splash of coconut milk and a tsp. of cocoa powder. Sooooo good. 

I've been feeling sort of glum today so we're just taking it easy tonight. Watching season 3 of The Mentalist and drinking unsweetened iced tea and cuddling with Riley. It's good for what ails me. 


  1. Nice pics! I like the cherry on top of the banana soft serve. :-)

    You turned me on to sardines with avocado back in the day!

    1. Thanks Julie! It tasted as good as it looked. :)
