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!

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.

Whole 30 – One Pot Chicken

When doing my Whole 30 research last month I asked around for different accounts and recipes that people liked so that I could create a list of what to make.  One friend suggested putting chicken breast in the crock pot.  This past weekend I did just that!  The recipe is so simple and it came out SO SO SO delicious!

This will make about 6-8 total servings if you follow exact. If not you will need to add more chicken to get what you need to satisfy your stomach

4 thick cut chicken breast – boneless skinless

Place all ingredients into the crock pot and cook for 8 hours on low.

Once done shred the chicken and eat over spaghetti squash with some tomato sauce.

Whole30 – Week 1 Recap

Back at the end of March/beginning of April I decided that I was going to take the small plunge and complete my first Whole30.  The first step in doing this was to buy the book.  I told myself I will complete it once we returned from our honeymoon and finished the Tone It Up Challenge that was going on.

Delicious Turkey Meatballs

If you have been following me on Instagram you know that next Monday I start the Whole30 diet, or better yet, lifestyle.  This diet eliminates many of the foods I have been eating a lot of over the past few years while living a pescetarian lifestyle.  In order to complete the Whole30 to the full extent I need to reintroduce meat to my diet.  Since we were away a few weeks ago on our honeymoon I began experimenting mostly while we were in Greece (our hotel had a breakfast and dinner buffet so I could try a little bit of what I wanted).  I felt perfectly fine from everything I ate and was really happy about that.
