Whole30 YUMMY!

Friends from CrossFit/Whole30 Challenge want some recipe LOVE! Here ya go:

Breakfast Casserole
LOADS of Veggies (your choice - these are my fave)
2 cups baby spinach
2 cups artichoke hearts
2 cups zucchini
2 cups mushrooms - quartered
1 cup roasted red peppers (pureed - with salt, pepper, and Adobo)
Sea Salt
1 tbsp Adobo Sauce (What is adobo? Click here. Where do I get it? Any store in latino section. What does it look like? Click here.)
8 slices of BACON w/1 onion cooked
16 eggs

Preheat oven 350
In a 9x13 pan coat with oil. 
Spinach on the bottom with artichokes on top of spinach.
In a large bowl mix zucchini, mushrooms, cooked bacon & onions, and red sauce till mixed well so veggies are coated. 
Dump over artichokes and spinach. 
Flatten out as much as you can. 
Pour eggs into cracks. 
Bake till golden brown and not jiggly. (approx. 30-50 min - each oven is different - check at 30 min).

Bacon Diaries: Salad Dressing
1 tsp Dijon Mustard (make sure it's whole30 OK)
1 tsp vinegar (I use champagne vinegar, but you could also use lemon juice or something else)
1 egg yolk (RAW BABY!)
Olive oil

Whisk the crap out of that and see how it tastes. Sometimes I add in anchovy paste or some crushed up berries for more sweetness. If you're not down with the raw egg just leave it out!

Dump out that old dressing or sause that has words you can't pronounce in it and use it for your new dressing! Re-use, Re-new, Re-cycle.

Go give a look see at Bacon Diaries while you are here. Thanks, Kylie!

Cabbage Salad
2 cups angle hair shredded cabbage
2 carrots chopped
1 cucumber chopped
1 cup snow peas cut up
cup of baby spinach
1/2 cup chopped and cooked BACON and onions (or chicken)
Toasted almonds (put sliced raw almonds on cookie sheet and bake about 9 min till golden brown... they burn quick... watch them)

Put all in a large bowl and mix with Bacon Diaries Salad Dressing.


Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Lots of brussel Sprouts (halved)
Diced onions
Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Pepper (or cheyenne pepper for a bigger kick)

Put all items to large bowl (with a lid is preferred but not needed), Shake or toss till coated well. Put brussel sprouts flat side down on cookie sheet and BROIL for 15-25 min till you get the color you like. I love then with a little char on them.

Roasting a turkey this weekend and my dad is doing a couple slow SMOKED pulled pork shoulders for us (no sugar rub of course). Ill have to bring some samples to the gym (if people want to try it Tuesday 5pm CF).

  1. We LOVE brussels sprouts!!! Sometimes I roast them with... bacon. Surprise!!!

    If you're short on time, Trader Joe's has prepped sprouts in the veggie section that you just microwave.

    The Whole30 gets hard if you run out of time or come home from the gym with nothing to eat! Stock up on some "convenience" food for when you don't feel like cooking.

    Our faves, (maybe not Whole30, but Paleo fo sho) are beef jerky, rosemary marcona almonds, hard boiled eggs, fully cooked chicken sausage...

    Another good idea: grill up chicken breasts Sunday night and you've got a good protein for salads all week long.

    BAM! I have so many freaking ideas it's scary
