This week’s grocery total:
Not too bad if you consider we had nothing in the fridge except for half a head of garlic, a jar of applesauce, and 2 eggs.
Tonight I’ve got a great meal planned around some lamb chops and I’m still working on something good for New Years’ Day. I wanted to come up with something rich and delicious but still Whole30-friendly. Originally I had a great recipe for roast goose with a sausage and chestnut stuffing from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, but quickly decided against it when I realized that the geese at Sprouts were upwards of $70 each. Soooo…I need a little more time on that one 😉
During the Whole30, I’ll be posting all of my meals as a way to not only keep myself accountable, but also to provide some good meal ideas for anyone who’s joining me. I’ve got some good recipes in the queue as well, and please, please, please feel free to offer up any of yours! This is a great chance to not only make yourself feel better physically, but a way to reinforce nutritional habits that are better for you and more sustainable in the long run.
Luckily, the only things we eat regularly that are forbidden during the Whole30 are some dairy and red wine. I’m also guilty of “Paleo-fying” a lot of dishes, so if I achieve nothing else next month I hope I’ll have a good chance to plan and execute some unique meals that aren’t built around my former unhealthy favorites.
Is anyone else doing a Whole30 to help ring in the New Year?
