Well hello there! It has been one long month let me just tell you, I finished my second Whoe30 challenge, I feel great and my allergies are finally back under control. I’m also sure I’d be sleeping if I didn’t have such noisy neighbors….it doesn’t matter what time of day it is they will rev up their vehicle that doesn’t have a muffler and its like surround sound in my house! I feel better now that I got that off my chest. I was looking forward to day all month not because I wouldn’t be so strict on my “diet” but because I was looking forward to a nice glass of wine. Which I am drinking as I type this up, (lucky me). I hope everyone had a lovely week. For me it was mediocre which I haven’t been able to say in a while. I was still super busy working my butt off but I doubt that will ever change. So you see I deserved this glass of vino!
So for dinner/breakfast I had:
Greek Meatza, Plantain Chicken Club and Spaghetti and Smokey Meatballs.
Probably the best combination of flavors known to man. Though if I hadn’t been doing Whole30 I’d have added feta, I can’t get enough feta.
1 pound ground beef
2-3 tbls greek seasoning
4 tbls roasted garlic paleo mayo/guac
marinated artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, black olives and pepperoni.
Pre-heat oven to 350F, add seasonings to meat and mix together.
Grab your favorite or least favorite up to you pie pan/dish and form a giant hamburger patty into it.
Bake for about 15 minutes, remove add toppings of choice and bake for another 6-8 minutes.
Try and wait for it to cool off before devouring.
Spaghetti and Meatballs
6 of Jessi’s smokey meatballs recipe to come
1 whole roasted and shredded spaghetti squash
3 tbls coconut oil
1 can of fire roasted tomatoes
1 pint of cherry tomatoes, I used orange ones
white pepper and salt to taste
1 small onion, diced;sauteed
1 tbls tomato paste
3 cloves minced garlic
Heat soup pan over medium high and saute the garlic and onions until soft.
Add the fire roasted and cherry tomatoes as well as the tomato paste. Stir and add salt/pepper to taste.
With a hand blender blend all the ingredients together and let simmer for about 30 minutes. *hint during this time you could be roasting your squash*
Once you’re happy with the flavor of the sauce add the meatballs then let them thaw out and cook for an additional 15 minutes. Once meatballs have thawed out serve the sauce on top of the squash or stir and combine.
In honor of my 30 birthday I did the Whole30 but lets face it you can do it just because it’s Monday!
Good Luck and have a blessed week!
I ate a lot of plantain chicken sandwiches because they’re just so easy to make and I am addicted, I mean there could be worse things to be addicted to!
I joked with my mom yesterday saying I was going to turn into a plantain chicken monster.
