We’re on a roll over here and loving it! I hope our meals are inspiring you as you make healthy meals for your family.
Today is day 1 of cutting out nightshade foods and eggs so breakfast might look a little strange today although I must say, it was really good. I call it: Sweet Beef Scramble. Recipe coming soon!
Brandon took us out for lunch today, our first big meal out since we started the whole30. Thankfully, we all know what works and ordering was easy. Continue reading
Today was a great day. Why? I’m glad you asked! Today we celebrated Jeremiah’s 5 year did-versary with his friends! Of course, first we started out with Eat Like a Dinosaur’s goose egg scramble. Dee-lish!
Jeremiah was so excited to get to his party that we had to leave an hour early just to make sure we made it there in time. We did. We scarfed down breakfast and ran out the door to laser tag!!!
Jeremiah, and all of us, had such a great time. I was so glad we were able to pull off a celebration for him and it certainly was a celebration. We laser tagged, bumped cars, and putt-putted like crazy all morning. It was wonderful and yes, I held back the proud mamma tears, at least until we got in the car. Don’t laugh at me!
All week the kids and I, and sometimes Brandon, have been having a “stay-cation”. We’ve gone to many of our favorite places in New Orleans and have been having a great time together. If you’ve never had a “stay-cation” I highly recommend you try it.
Picture this: You get to take your family to fun places, places you might already have a membership to, and still get to bring great food and sleep in your own comfy bed. It’s so much fun and gives you the opportunity to enjoy the city you live in. We went to the zoo, the movies, the library, the aquarium, the insectarium, and now the summer movie and the children’s museum. Talk about a great week. I hope you have a great “stay-cation” soon!
We went to an early morning summer movie showing of Alvin and the Chipmunks so we scarfed down some chorizo and eggs, packed a lunch, and headed out.
I realize I sound like a cheerleader stuck on repeat but….. Day 4 was a success! Haha, I crack myself up.
Although breakfast, according to my meal plan, was supposed to be Goose Egg Scramble we had to be creative. For the first time ever we were late to the farmers market and for the first time ever they ran out of sweet potatoes! Aaahh! Don’t worry, we survived…barely.
Thankfully we had leftover Sweet Potato Cinni-Mash so I joined that with leftover grilled squash and zucchini and eggs over easy. Looks so pretty, doesn’t it?
We were out and about today and still ate well and had a great day!
We started out with chorizo and eggs for breakfast, a true comfort food for me. Growing up in a hispanic home chorizo was a staple and one of my most enjoyable breakfast meals. I was absolutely thrilled to find chorizo at Whole Foods and know that the ingredients are not full of artificial ingredients. Yay for keeping chorizo on the menu!
After breakfast we took a drive out to downtown NOLA to visit the Aquarium and Insectarium.
What a sweet day today is! Today is the anniversary of when our oldest son, Jeremiah was diagnosed 5 years ago with type 1 diabetes. We have a fun day planned to celebrate this milestone and how proud we are of him. Daddy even took the day off to be with us. But first! We have to start the day with a fun, healthy breakfast.
Breakfast pizza! My kids love breakfast pizza, probably because it has the word pizza in it. Hey, whatever! This is certainly Levi’s absolute favorite breakfast. He ate 3 pizzas! That’s 6 eggs! And he’s only 2! Continue reading
I am very pleased to say that Day 1 was a huge success. I’m sure because it’s new and exciting we were able to do well so I have my fingers and toes crossed that we keep up the momentum for 29 more days. Whatever the reasoning we all were strong, we all met our goals, and we all ate delicious food. I plan on keeping a food journal of our whole30 journey to share with you guys. Hopefully this encourages you to make healthy, mouth-watering meals your whole family will enjoy as well. Check this out.
For breakfast we started with Eggplant Hole in the Head from the cookbook Make it Paleo. If you don’t have this book I highly recommend you pick it up. This is one of my go-to recipe books that is full of delicious meals and does not disappoint. I also served fresh sausage and avocado with our eggs. Hit the spot so well that my kids didn’t ask for food all morning and we were so full that we had a late lunch, which never happens.
