Crock Pot Beef and Sweet Potato Chili

I’ve been making Slow Cooker meals all week and I’m in love. My favorite part of the whole production (which isn’t even a “production”) is when Cooper wakes up first thing in the morning, I pick him up out of his crib and ask him if he wants to help me cook. He replies with… Continue reading Crock Pot Beef and Sweet Potato Chili

Cauliflower Rice Mushroom Bowls with Almond Pesto

I’m trying to convince Mark that we should eat more vegetarian options for dinner. It’s not particularly going over so well. I found this delicious (vegetarian) recipe, told him about it, and then he asked me if I could add some chicken to it. Alright dude, calm down, you crazy carnivore. This may be one… Continue reading Cauliflower Rice Mushroom Bowls with Almond Pesto

Shrimp Noodle Thai Curry Bowl

Every since starting this Whole30 journey, I have been obsessed with all things coconut milk. I pretty much never cooked with it before…and I had no idea what I was missing. It makes everything so creamy and delicious. Just yum. I usually stay away from all creamy sauces (alfredo, hollandaise etc), but coconut milk just… Continue reading Shrimp Noodle Thai Curry Bowl

Buffalo Ranch Stuffed Peppers

I love me a good stuffed pepper. Either with ground meat, vegetarian style, or this way (my new favorite); it is just the complete package. These are still Whole30 compliant, which makes them taste even better. Because they have that extra level of health. Well that, and they are topped with guacamole. And anything topped… Continue reading Buffalo Ranch Stuffed Peppers

I’ve never witnessed him like this, guys! He’s so into it that he wants to keep going with it. Although yesterday, the day… Continue reading Crispy Chicken Thighs with Schmaltzy Vinaigrette

A Quick Avocado, Tomato and Red Onion Salad

For some reason I bought 85,000 tomatoes at the store the other day. I have no idea why. I don’t even think they were on sale. My poor mind. I also bought 6 avocados. Also, not on sale. Also, getting very mushy sitting on my counter. I needed to utilize them both. And quick, before… Continue reading A Quick Avocado, Tomato and Red Onion Salad

Paleo Eggplant and Beef Goulash

Just like I had made the Breakfast Salad ( in the very beginning of our Whole30 adventure, I also made this Eggplant Goulash on the same exact day. I didn’t take any pictures, blog, or even try to make them look presentable the first day I made them though, because honestly I didn’t have high… Continue reading Paleo Eggplant and Beef Goulash

Homemade Granola Bars. A Great Whole30 Snack.

Mark has been doing SO GOOD on this Whole30 diet, that I figured I better make a “snacky” food soon before he gets too overwhelmed and grabs a handful of goldfish from the pantry. I found these easy granola bars online. Only 4 ingredients. Dates, Walnuts, Coconut, and Dried Cranberries. I toasted the walnuts, and… Continue reading Homemade Granola Bars. A Great Whole30 Snack.
