Whole30 - Day 14

See the title of this post? DAY 14! That's two full weeks in. I sort of didn't think I'd make it this far, to be honest. I'm now a lot more confident that I'll make it to 30 days.

Let's see ... breakfast today was another plate of scrambled eggs, mashed avocado and sardines. I seriously love this meal.


So satisfying -- filling and full of flavour. Not to mention it only takes about 5 minutes to make. 

Initially I wasn't too sure what we were going to do for dinner. I decided that in the meantime, I'd make up a batch of Sunshine Sauce, from The Clothes Make The Girl. This is basically a paleo version of peanut sauce -- I really liked it. The only change I made was to decrease the lime juice to 1tbsp, and increase the coconut aminos to 2 tbsp. 


This uses sunflower seed butter since peanuts aren't permitted on the Whole30. To be honest, I'm still not sold on sunflower seed butter. It has a sort of burnt taste that I don't really like. I think next time I would try making this with almond or cashew butter. 

For dinner, we ended up grilling up a couple of butterflied pork loin chops. I also made a big bowl of zucchini 'noodles', but using my julienne peeler on a couple of zucchinis. Once they were shredded I just nuked them for 2 minutes to make them a bit softer. I also nuked a bit of shredded cabbage (coleslaw mix). Drizzled some Sunshine Sauce over top and called it a decidedly delicious dinner. 


I still have a few things left to do tonight. I want to make up a batch of tuna salad for lunch this week, and I have to make another breakfast casserole. Then of course get my kitchen back into some sort of working order. I swear, our poor dishwasher's been running non-stop since I started the Whole30.

    1. Nice! Even though I'm not supposed to 'track' on the Whole30, I've plugged a few days into MyFitnessPal -- and most of my days I seem to be getting about 50-75g of carbs. Which is probably not as low as some diets go, but is low enough for me!

    1. Aren't they the best? I'm thinking some kind of 'spaghetti sauce' with them next weekend.
