I don't even know what food is anymore

Recommended Posts

I've done more than one whole30, and I don't even know what I ate during the previous ones. I'm trying to plan for my January whole30 and get lots of recipes gathered up, and I'm drawing a complete blank. I have pinterest, I have at least 6 whole30/paleo cook books, and nothing is jumping out at me. What even is food anymore?

Put the cookbooks back on the shelf. 

Embrace your own creativity!  Discover the pleasure of simple cooking.  This time around, use veggies and things that you were turned off by before.

My very favorite blogger is Paleo Running Momma. She has a filter on her website to find her Whole30 recipes (she's a Paleo blogger so not all recipes are Whole30 compliant). Here are some of my very favorite Whole30 recipes from her! Try some, you won't be disappointed!

One thing we found to be helpful this go-around is to rotate two meals for breakfast --- for the entire month. We have one breakfast meal we eat on days when we aren't training at the gym, and another meal that we eat on the days we are. 

We usually stick to the same thing for lunch, too. We've found that we really love chicken salad with a homemade mayo, chopped dates, and roasted walnuts over arugula. We roast our walnuts with cinnamon, which gives them a unique flavor. We haven't gotten tired of that one. 

Otherwise, we really like to implement bowls for meals! My favorite is a sweet potato pineapple beef bowl. It's roasted sweet potatoes, ground beef, crushed pineapple, and cubed avocado with a little lime juice. Sometimes we add chopped mango to it, as well, to shake it up a little. And we just love mangoes. 

Hopefully one of those helps or inspires! :)
