Week 2 Completed: Whole30 for the Piepers

I have graduated to a weekly Whole30 post.

  1. have been crazy busy and squeezing it in daily it getting difficult
  2. we have been making favorite meals that I have already shared
  3. I don’t have a lot of new insight. It really feels like we’ve been eating this way forever!

Time has been a huge change for me. Eating Whole30 is not quick, fast, on-the-go foods. They are good, nutritious, healthy food that take time to prepare and eat. Although this may seem like a disadvantage, I feel like it has been a bonus.

  • It has created more meal times as a family.
  • It encourages us to get up earlier.
  • We’ve been able to get a good start to our day.

I have had some great Crockpot meals! I loved Creamy Chicken Soup (I added 16oz of chopped up mushrooms and 3 C spinach.) Tomorrow I’m going to cook a whole chicken with garlic, onions, lemons and spices. After the meal is over I’ll put bones and skin back in the crockpot with water and cook overnight to make chicken stock. I did just run across a Jambalaya Crockpot recipe that I think I’ll try next week.

Now to Easter… I think I will make:

– A roasted leg of lamb with mint pesto
– Deviled eggs with homemade mayo, paprika, (some topped with fresh jalapeño)
– Twice baked sweet potatoes topped with pecans
– sautéed mushrooms and garlic with fresh herbs

One last random though, Kim, Katie and I are going to The Gluten & Allergen Free Expo. I’m so very excited to go. I will be planning to bring most of my food to I don’t get tempted! Stay tuned for posts next week.
