WhatIWore: I’ve been cooking up a storm in the past week and documenting many of my meals on Instagram. Since my Whole30 in January, the majority of my diet follows a paleo approach, which is how I cook at home. (But I still have a sweet tooth and love a glass of wine, so I let myself enjoy both in moderation!)
For those of you who have asked about recipes or want a little inspiration for your own clean eating cooking regimen, here are my favorite meals from the past week or so with recipes or links when I have them! Above: Lettuce Wraps with Pickled Onion, Ginger Carrots and Skillet Fried Turkey (using meatball left overs)
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! In addition to my normal egg, avocado, berry breakfast, I’ve also really enjoyed the following:
We like cooking or grilling up a big batch of chicken breasts at the start of the week for quick and easy meals like chicken salad or a chicken based stir fry.
- Homemade Mayo (using the recipe found in It Starts with Food)
- 4 Grilled Chicken Breasts, 1/2” cubes
- 1/3” C raisins
- 1 small onion, diced
- 5-6 Dill Pickles, diced
Turkey Meatballs with marinara over Broccoli - I love making these turkey meatballs and they work well as leftovers! I use a simple recipe of:
- 1 lb white ground turkey
- 1 lb dark ground turkey
- 1 apple, cubed into 1/4” pieces
- 1 onion, cubed into 1/4” pieces
- 1 egg
- 3 T almond flour
- S & P to taste
I like to make my own red sauce, but when in a jam, I just get some from the store. Read the ingredients carefully to find a sugar free option. Make it a little more special by cooking some onions and garlic in olive oil before adding the store bought sauce. Serve over veggies!
Hungry yet? I’d love to see what you make! @Reply me on instagram @whatiwore with your creations!
