R4:d13 KISS; Keep it Simple, Sweetheart! 😜 These compliant grass-fed Polish sausages are from Costco, @twrgrassfedbeef , and just so yummy. I roast them on the same pan as the sweet potatoes and broccoli. Set the sweet potatoes for one hour, add the broccoli at the half hour mark, then add the sausages at the 15 minute mark. Easier than takeout, for real. And I figured out I love dressing my sweet potatoes with a dollop of @primalkitchenfoods chipotle lime mayo (if I can’t have my @kerrygoldusa ). #whole30#breastfeedingwhole30#januarywhole30#jerf#realfood#paleo#primal#glutenfree#grainfree#dairyfree#cleaneating#eatclean
I’m trying out this thing where when my coach says to not go too heavy, I actually don’t. I did these for 100 lbs heavier a couple months ago, but then I hurt my back sooooo. 5x3 sumo pulls @ 445. And would you look at that, my back feels fine right now ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
When my #whole30daybyday journal asked me what went well today.... it was an easy call! I met my role model. @melissa_hartwig is badass, hilarious, poised, and smart as hell. I'm so grateful I had the chance to meet her. THANK YOU for always giving back to this community 💙❤️
Our #FridayReads pick:
📕Mark Sisson [@marksissonprimal], author of The Primal Blueprint, has put together a fantastic keto cookbook, a supplement to the Primal way of eating. .
From Amazon: “Mounting research is confirming that eating a ketogenic diet could represent one of the greatest nutritional breakthroughs of our time—and that it might be the healthiest and most effective weight loss strategy ever.”
📕We love the Primal Cheesecake and Primal Coleslaw recipes, as well as The Antipasto Skewers—#ketolicious 😋😍
📕“The exploding popularity of keto has resulted in excessive hype and ill-advised attempts to shortcut the process of fat-adaptation. The Keto Reset Diet takes a thoughtful, patient, lifestyle-focused approach to bring you all the health benefits without the burnout.” - Melissa Hartwig [@melissa_hartwig], @nytimes best-selling author & @whole30 co-founder
📕We also love @primalkitchenfoods 🥑 avocado and chipotle mayos for times we’re too dang lazy to make our own. Love 💕 the Greek Dressing too. And can’t wait for a @primalkitchenrestaurants to hit Northern California!
Happy #smallfactfriday ! Manganese is an unsung hero that does amazing, foundational things for your body. It helps with: collagen and bone formation, the metabolism of amino acids, carbs, and cholesterol, as well as nutrient absorption. Pretty important stuff!⠀
Persimmons are a good source of manganese and in season right now. I love snacking on them raw, chopping them up and adding them into salads or making them into slaws. They work well as jams or baked in breads or muffins. How do you enjoy persimmons?⠀
It's a happening Friday night here! Seriously though, after the overtime in the hockey tournament I quick ran to the store and shopped at Trader Joe's in about 10 minutes. I know that store like the back of my hand.
To see what's in my cart videos go to my Insta stories and check it all out!
I started #morevegetablesthanavegetarian because I was a vegetarian for 7 years. Paleo often gets attacked as a meat-only diet, but that’s not the case. .
We approach this life style with the same emphasis on plant-based nutrition (remember our recent emphasis on 8+ servings of veggies!), but also believe humans are adapted to eat meat. However, my compassion and concern for the animals and earth never changed. .
My brother, in fact went vegan when I went back to eating meat so he’s been meat-free for over 20 years! We are able to easily accommodate both of us at family meals! .

#whole30 day nineteen 🎉 sometimes recipes blend together & you use what you have & create odd magic - for example, dinner tonight was a zesty cilantro lime chicken with fresh strawberry salsa with a side of roasted fall vegetables 😦 so random. Sometimes I just crave random wholesome foods & then it just ends up on a plate all together like☝ Truthfully, it was a most satisfying meal because of it's simplicity. Raw ingredients, roasted to enhance their natural flavors & that's it. One of my favorite things about the whole30 program is just how in tune you become with your body. Something interesting I learned about hunger pains is that they are essentially your bodies way of asking for nutrients your low on. Eat your fill of nutrient rich foods, bye bye hunger pains & hello satisfied you. Whole30 has helped me appreciate my bodies way of sort of tapping out once I've eaten what it needs & not over eating. Whole30 forces me to balance my meals & pay closer attention to adding nutrient dense foods to my diet. 🙌🌱🍴
Dinner was one pound of venison burgers with smoked mozzarella and bacon. And a delicious sauce I made from spicy mayo and sugar free BBQ. The glass is raw milk, goat Kefir and heavy cream. Everyone keeps asking me how my digestion is - it's amazing. Even better since adding in raw and fermented dairy. When I used to eat lots of vegetables and grains my digestion was terrible. Eating this way has fixed that. #primal#paleo#carnivore#ketosis
Working on West Coast time; so I’m just tucking into this *delicious* dinner and pulling up some Miss Fisher on Netflix. Maple mustard glazed duck breast, potatoes gilded in rosemary, garlic, and duck fat; arugula salad with a perfect blood orange.
>>>>>>>The Food Culture of Today<<<<<<< “Diets”. They can feel like a burden. Like you are giving something up. I hate diets. It’s what has always derailed my healthy eating efforts in the past. Pressure to conform. Uncomfortable social and family situations around food.
What I want to eventually come to terms with, is a freedom with my thoughts in this arena. Healthy eating is not meant to be a diet, but a way of eating for life.
The more we, collectively, change our lives and lifestyles in regards to food, we change our community.
When I first started attending our local mom’s group, healthy eating, or even gluten free wasn’t even a part of the vocabulary at our brunches. By the time I left MOPS, due to homeschool constraints, people who weren’t even GF were bringing in foods that were GF, Paleo, and sugar free, because the response in the group was so positive.
My hope is that we can get together socially and help one another embrace this healthy way of living, so that we can create a culture around this style of eating.
I hope, in my lifetime, this will be the new “normal”. Let’s get our kids and family members on board, too!
What are your thoughts on food culture affecting your ability to sustain healthy eating?
Today I was craving snacks in the am and pm, so I just got up from my desk and did other things at those moments and the cravings went away. Fun fact. What does one say about day 19? Today felt easy and I was in a good, calm mood all day, despite my cold. 👍😷
✳️ Breakfast: veggie frittata, sautéed tomatoes, avocado
✳️ Lunch: carrot-ginger soup, steak & mustard lettuce wraps, snap peas, a sweet potato tuna cake, sautéed kale, and jicama.
✳️ Dinner: my new favorite thing! Sweet potato and Brussels sprout hash with chicken-apple sausage. ———
Well it’s 9:50pm actually. I was baking a batch of granola because I wanted to try using @choczero Maple Pecan Honest Syrup as a binding agent/sweetener and see how it works. IT DOES! And it’s delicious!
I mean, ya gotta sample the recipe right?? 😳
Feeling uninspired lately with my food. Seems to be the same plate, different day. Then my mom brought home swordfish and it was such a pleasant surprise! Swordfish is not very fishy but is full of flavor. We grilled it with salt and pepper and it was done perfectly. 😍 we paired it with grilled Brussels sprouts, carrots and sweet potatoes. Happy day 19 #januarywhole30 peeps! Can you believe we are on the tail end of this round?? Who is continuing on past 30 days with me?
Throwback to 3 deer seasons ago. Back when I was too impatient to read reviews on the KitchenAid meat grinder attachment. Apparently said attachment is for small jobs, like grinding two steaks and a strip of bacon into a burger. NOT meant for an entire deer. Nope. It burns the KitchenAid motor. The cost of said motor, you ask??-- Ohhhhhh, the same as an entirely new KitchenAid mixer. 🙈 I learned my lesson and got a 0.75 horsepower LEM Big Bite Grinder. Grinds ANYTHING. 51 pounds TWICE?-- no problem.
