Recent Eats: Transitioning Off The Whole30

This is what Friday night looked like over here.

Wine and dogs

PJs, puppies, Postmates and vino. Good stuff. I actually started this post on Friday night but then two of my girlfriends dropped by (one with her 12 week old 5 pound puppy…check out my SnapChat (jendecurtins) to see that. It was too cute.).

Here’s what rolling off of the Whole30 looked like this week.

Breakfast

sweet potato breakfast bowl with scrambled eggs

Mostly same stuff.

scrambled eggs and a smoothie

I did bring back a smoothie one morning, that was nice.

Lunch

Arugula, avocado, blueberries, strawberries, toasted pecans and shredded chicken.

Dinner

Turkey burgers topped with homemade mayo and sauteed mushrooms with sauteed shredded brussels sprouts cooked with bacon. Yum.

Leftover turkey burgers, spinach and artichoke stuffed portobellos and roasted eggplant.

How’s this for random? Leftover turkey burgers, spinach and artichoke stuffed portobellos and roasted eggplant.

A spin on Cooking Light’s Tumeric Pork Chops with Green Onion Rice along with roasted broccoli. I used white rice instead of brown and made my own instead of buying instant/pre-cooked. I cooked the rice in chicken broth and coconut oil. I added the charred green onions along with the pan drippings to the rice once it was cooked. It was really good. I missed rice so much on Whole30!

PaleOMG Pizza Spaghetti Pie

I made a big pan of PaleOMG Pizza Spaghetti Pie and it fed me for dinner three nights. I love this base recipe. My modifications this time included making it in a bigger pan because I had a really big squash. Also, I used marinara sauce instead of pizza sauce and more than called for. I added sliced mushrooms in with the sausage mix and used hot Italian chicken sausage. Finally, I used Italian seasoning instead of dried basil and added a dash of cayenne pepper.

Put this on your “must try soon” list if you’ve never made it. It’s super easy, tastes amazing and the leftovers heat over really well!

Etc.

Sourdough toast with cashew butter, honey and banana…and a side of cute golden. I ate this the day I baked and sliced. I couldn’t not have a piece of freshly baked bread!

What’s been your lunch of choice lately?

    Can you share more details on the spinach & artichoke stuffed portabellas? Sounds delicious!

    The best dinner I cooked was last night for my Mom and myself. I marinated pork chops (in the bone of course) with broccoli rabe and a roasted sweet potato. Simple, easy, and delicious for a cold winter night! I always love looking at your food pics. They make me happy! 😉
