It’s a new year and time to buckle down and eat healthily again. Day 2 of our Thirty Days of Whole30 is down, and it was almost as easy as the first! I woke up feeling puffy all over, especially in my hands and feet. Kind of like I was retaining a lot of water. I didn’t have any major cravings or temptations throughout the day, but I did have a slight headache in the afternoon and evening. But man! The Whole30 meals sure were good!

Breakfast

For breakfast, I whipped up these Warm Butternut Squash Banana Smoothie Bowls. It was an awesome breakfast, combining the convenience of a smoothie with the warmth I was craving. Plus I had all sorts of fun with the toppings! You can substitute pumpkin or sweet potatoes for the butternut squash, and it’ll be just as yummy. I had a glass of water and a cup of blackberry sage herbal tea on the side.

Lunch

For lunch, I had some Crock Pot Sweet Potato and Mushroom Chili (recipe coming soon!) and a glass of unsweetened tea. The chili is similar to my Easy 8-Ingredient Paleo & Whole30 Chili but made in the crock pot and with chunks of creamy sweet potatoes and meaty mushrooms added. Yum!

Afternoon Snack

I was a little hungry in the afternoon, so I whipped up a quick Chipotle-Lime Tuna Salad. In a mixing bowl, I combined a can of Whole30-compliant tuna, a couple tablespoons of Primal Kitchen’s Chipotle Lime Mayo (made with avocado oil), a handful of shredded carrots and some cherry tomatoes sliced in half. It was a great little pick-me-up. I washed everything down with an ounce of 100% pomegranate juice diluted with about 6 ounces of sparkling water.

Dinner

My husband mentioned he’d really like to have a burger for dinner. Well, I made the next best thing! Hamburger bowls! I took a pound of locally raised grass fed ground beef, browned it with some seasonings (a little chili powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper), stirred in some Whole30-compliant diced tomatoes and piled it onto a bed of fresh spinach. I drizzled it with Tessemae’s Ketchup and some mustard and added a dollop of my Whole30 mayonnaise along with a few pickles and onion slices. I didn’t miss the bread at all! I had plain sparkling water to drink.
