Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings

Mark and I gave been wanting a change of pace from the typical “grilled protein and veggies” that I usually resort to making. I wanted to make something fatty and fun and chicken wings pooped in my mind. But I was almost positive those fried little things weren’t Whole30 approved. But I found a recipe.… Continue reading Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings

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

Crispy Chicken Thighs with Schmaltzy Vinaigrette

Mark officially ended the Whole30 and lost 14 pounds people! This thing is no joke. He wore his high school jeans yesterday. He’s almost 32. This is like mind blowing to me. 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

Breakfast Sausage Pizza Egg Muffins

Today is the 7th day Mark has been on “convalescent leave” since his surgery, and it has been AWESOME. Being a military wife basically means being a single mom most of the time. Between the 7 month deployments, your husband working 12+ hours a day and then them having 24 hour duty some weekends, it… Continue reading Breakfast Sausage Pizza Egg Muffins

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

Sausage, Hard Boiled Egg, and Avocado Breakfast “Salad”

This is the second time I have made this dish in the last 13 days (13 days is how long Mark has been doing this Whole30 thing for). It was actually the first Whole30 recipe I found and made. Well, besides just roasting some veggies and grilling up some meat on my own, and trying… Continue reading Sausage, Hard Boiled Egg, and Avocado Breakfast “Salad”

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.

Paleo Orange Chicken and Cauliflower Rice

Chinese food is my weakness. It just tastes soooooo good.¬†All that salt, and MSG, and unprouneable ingredients…man they taste delicious. It’s also good because it’s soooo easy to get. Pick up your phone (you were probably already holding it), call the closet Chinese restaurant to you, place an order to feed 8 (even though there… Continue reading Paleo Orange Chicken and Cauliflower Rice

Thai Chicken with Spicy Peanut Sauce

These Whole30 recipes I’m finding are wayyyyy better than I thought they were going to be. Mark went to get a second helping tonight (aka finish the rest of the meal) and I freaked out and said “wait split that with me!!!!”. #thatgood. There were no carb-y noodles harmed in this dish either. It was… Continue reading Thai Chicken with Spicy Peanut Sauce
