This week we incorporated non-Whole 30 meals back into our menu since I wrapped up on 1/30. I've tried to maintain a balance since it ended, but I'll be honest, I've had dessert every night for the past 3 nights, ate BBQ chips, and added my beloved salted caramel creamer back into my life. #noregrets
I've done better than in the past, where I would just face plant into pizza, ice cream and more. I even got physically ill after my first Whole 30 because I went buck wild my first day off it. So, I'm trying to prevent that from happening!
So, here's what we ate this week!
Sunday: Sloppy Joes with roasted potatoes and carrots | similar recipe (I use sort of a mash-up of recipes for paleo sloppy joes; I'll have to type mine out and share it soon!)
Monday: Asian Noodle Bowls with ground turkey
Tuesday: Homemade pizza (I went light on cheese on my side to ease back into dairy)
Wednesday: Homemade chicken nuggets (similar recipe, but I pan-fried mine) and roasted broccoli
Thursday: Beef meatballs with roasted cabbage and carrots
Friday: Chicken Parmesan with Zoodles
Saturday: Mexican Skillet
Breakfasts were soft boiled eggs with a Trader Joe's turkey burger and Aldi tomatillo salsa, or other leftovers. Lunches were more leftovers! Although, I did have to make a random last minute lunch yesterday and went with leftover quinoa, half a can of chicken, half an avocado, and more of my favorite salsa. Meals aren't always fancy (or pretty), but it got the job done.
Snacks included Trader Joe's 100% fruit bars, nuts, dried apricots, and an Aldi brand peppermint protein bar (similar to Luna bars).
Have a great weekend!
