Like many on here I love my copies of Well Fed and Well Fed 2 ... and I want to make sure I have tried every delicious recipe in them. I've cooked many recipes already over the last 18m or so (my first round was May 2014), some of which have become regular favourites. Some I have made once and not been bothered to make again, some I have made once or twice and really should make again, and some I've looked at many times but never made. I'm a dedicated meal planner, and I'm challenging myself to include at least one new recipe from these fab books each week - in the hopes of discovering some new favourites! I'll also try to re-visit ones I've made before but am not so familiar with. Anyone else fancy it?? I'm starting on the protein dishes but you could try veggies, sauces or spice blends too. So - I meal planned last night and shopped this morning and tonight we had Moo Shu pork (WF2). It's a bit of a prep-heavy dish, I made the Hoisin sauce (also new!) and marinated the pork yesterday. Lots of veggies to chop too, but then it all comes together quickly. I separated out the cabbage as it disagrees with my husband and ate mine on a bed of cabbage. Husband and the kids had theirs in butter lettuce wraps as recommended. We didn't add sides - it was a great template meal! Everyone loved it. Well, except the 2 year old (who only ate beansprouts), but she doesn't like much ... I think it's a bit faffy for a midweek meal for me but a great weekend one. Would be easy to upscale for guests too. I've got BBQ beef (WF2, minus the illegal waffle) to go in the slow cooker tomorrow morning, I've made the BBQ sauce before but I don't think I've ever made the whole recipe.
I'm sure you all know and love it, but if you haven't tried the Pad Thai from WellFed, stop what you are doing and cook it! I've made it with shrimp, chicken, and beef and its always awesome! Top it with green onions and toasted almonds and you'll never want to reach the bottom of your bowl!
Hello all...I have been following many components of the Palelo lifestyle for quite some time (~6 months). However, some of my Crossfit friends swear by this Whole30 plan and its results. I thought I could give it a shot since I am always up for a challenge. Since March, I have lost about 30 pounds while working out 4-5 times a week and abstaining from most non-Paleo foods, but have plateaued in recent weeks. I am 31, 5'7", and weigh about 150, but don't foresee myself getting too much lighter or thinner due to muscle mass, etc. I really just want to be super strict for a little while to see how my body responds. I have to admit that sometimes I have a glass of wine or vodka cocktail while I am out meeting new folks in Marfa (I just relocated here from Austin this summer). My choice to take on the Paleo lifestyle wasn't decided solely on my own..I have to credit my sister who introduced this way of life to me years ago (I finally started listening this year) after she discovered that she had Celiac Disease (which I probably do, too, or at least an intolerance to gluten). I also have to credit my dear friends and coaches at Crossfit Austin as a big component in getting me on the right track physically and emotionally prepared to make this lifestyle change. I had been overweight and yo-yo'd up and down for much of my teen-adult life. I ate out of emotion and seemed to never know when I was full or what my body needed to stay satisfied. I decided early on before learning about Paleo that I should avoid dairy because ice cream and cheese were big craving-triggers for me. I remember not too long ago while living in Austin I would order a large pizza and eat it ALL by myself, then run to the convenience store to buy a pint of ice cream....I ate that all, too...it was a never ending cycle. However, since March I haven't had too many craving attacks...I will be honest and say I gave in a few times, even in recent weeks (oh, no, not to pizza or anything containing gluten, but maybe a little sundae at DQ), so I figured this would be the best time to get Whole30 started. If anyone has quick ideas for a teacher on the go, please feel free to post what you think might help. I will thoroughly read every email and tip sent by Melissa and Dallas, but if there are any extra measures I can take to be more successful, let me know! I WANT TO DECLARE THIS AS MY COMMITMENT! Cheers, and I greatly appreciate this opportunity.
