OurSmallFootprint Posted January 10, 2021 Share Posted January 10, 2021 Hey everyone, I've found inspiration and accountability by reading others journals, so I hope to add that in too! Hubby and I have decided to do a whole30, he has chronic reflux and congestion and has gained a lot of weight in his 40+ spread, it is impacting his knees and back and joints, I have a bunch of chronic health issues including Trigeminal Neuralgia and psoriasis, with some other things thrown in, so we both want to see if anything food wise is the culprit for flares if we can. We live off grid in Australia with 6 kiddos, I only shop monthly (I travel 3.5 hours each way once a month to do a big shop) but we do have a small town 30mins away that we visit once or twice a week for animal feed/post office etc. My kiddos are CMPI so they don't have dairy already so I'm feeding them very similarly to us, but I do make them sourdough, milk kefir smoothies/overnight oats and homemade pasta for their bolognese etc. They also consume a fair amount of peanut butter lol, and I do make them treats like sourdough pancakes with blueberries etc, I am very good at abstaining, hubby not so much, but I just don't serve him those foods. I shopped on Thursday the 7th, so that evening was our first compliant meal, something we eat regularly anyway, nom nom paleo's cracklin chicken thighs with mashed potato and Brocollini sautéed in the chicken fat/ghee. I spend the next few days meal prepping all the meat that I bought. I got a great deal on a 15kg box of chicken breasts so, I smoked 18 large chicken breasts in a compliant dry rub and then sliced them all up and vacuum sealed them and froze them for later, I also diced up half of the rest and filleted the other half and froze that in portions for meals later on. I made burger patties (mince, diced mushroom, bacon) for dinner and we had the leftovers the next day as well, I will make 4kg of compliant meatballs to snap freeze and then portion out and freeze vacuum sealed and I am making 2 of the bacon wrapped meatloaves with mushroom gravy tonight for today and tomorrow as well. I also have a boston but and a huge rolled leg roast of pork that I will use throughout this month, and some prawns in the freezer I also bought massive amounts of garlic and made garlic confit to make my sauces/mayo's out of So 8th of Jan M1 Sauteed Veg Bowl, we have a large vegetable garden which is going to help enormously with our veg intake. M2 Grilled Chicken with avocado and salad M3 Burger Plate with a fried egg, and roasted potato straws, salad including kohlrabi from the garden, and Aioli made from the garlic confit. 9th Jan M1 Zucchini and Bacon Fritters with leftover meat patties and aioli M2 Sausage, Basil and Tomato Frittata (Paleo Running Momma) M3 Cracklin Chicken thighs with Mashed potato and Sautéed Brocollini.
