The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

I remember how much trouble I used to have making the perfect hard boiled egg. To get it cooked all the way through was ALWAYS an issue.  The yolk would always be a bit raw and making egg salad would be half wasteful.

Before I continue I want to say

ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been wanting to make paleo chocolate chip cookies for a while now (since I finished my January Whole 30) but time has not permitted.  This past weekend while meal prepping I tossed some ingredients together and prayed for the best!

The cookies came out a little crumbly but REALLY delicious (in my opinion!).  You will have to try it out for yourself to see how you like them.

Paleo Pizza

This past weekend I wanted to venture out of my recent comforts of food and make a paleo pizza for my husband and I.  I knew I was going to keep it dairy free, gluten free, and aside from a little corn on top it is paleo.  I spent a little bit of time online researching different recipes to see what I wanted to include and not include in my dough.  I already knew it wasn’t going to be a “traditional” pizza because I am trying to avoid dairy as much as possible.

Top 10 Kitchen Gadgets

A while ago I shared with you my favorite kitchen tools.  I have been wanting to bring this post of my Top 10 Favorite Kitchen Gadgets (electric) for a while now but Whole 30 life got in the way.  I am certainly NOT complaining about that because it has taught me so much about food and about myself.

Charts from Whole 30

I am sharing with you the chart that I made to keep track of my food and workouts during my Whole 30.

I am also including each weeks meals in a chart form because I had a lot of people asking for this.  It will probably be easier to see in this form rather than viewing each week the way I had posted previously.

On the meal charts I have my shopping list at the bottom.  I kept it there to help you out a little if needed.  It also says where certain meals came from.  Some recipes I have posted to my blog so you can go back a few posts to check it out.

Each has a photo to see what you are downloading and a link above it with the actual PDF or JPG. Continue reading

Chicken Sofrito – Whole 30 Approved

About 2 weeks ago my husband came home with a recipe from work that he wanted to make for our January Whole 30.  I was all for it since it was one less thing I had to make.

I gave him some of the chicken that I was planning to use for something else and we swapped it out for this.  The marinade we used is called a sofrito (Caribbean and Latin American sauce of tomatoes, onions, peppers, garlic, and herbs). Continue reading

Whole 30 – Week 3 Recap

I can’t believe Week 3 has come and gone.  I have been feeling better than ever and I couldn’t be happier!  I will let you know that Sunday has become finish the fridge.  We eat whatever foods are left from the week since sometimes I make too much 🙂 Continue reading

Pulled Pork Carnitas – Whole 30 Approved

Right before the new year my husband and I went to a little get together at my friend Monica’s house. She had lots of different “picking” style foods for everyone to enjoy.  One of my favorite things she made was pulled pork on sweet potato toast (and a couple of pom seeds on top!).  My husband and I, along with everyone else there, went CRAZY for this!  I knew I had to make it.  Being that a few days later I was starting our January Whole 30 I had to wait until week 2 because that first weeks meals were already set.  Im a HUGE planner and you will see when I post my meal plan at the end how much so.  This came into play for days 8-14 for a few meals and it was just as tasty.  She cooked hers in an Instapot and I used a Crockpot because I don’t have one.
