Happy Independence Day to everyone! 🙂
Along with celebrating the 4th of July, I am also celebrating the fact that I found a new recipe for breakfast! On The Petite Professional website, I found a recipe for Sweet Potato Crusted Kale & Bacon Egg Bake. It was AMAZING. I actually baked mine in a Pyrex Pie Panbecause it’s what I had on hand that would work pretty much the same as a cast iron skillet. I did change the recipe up just a little bit, as I used fresh kale (I didn’t have any frozen) and I added tomato slices to about half of it (just because I love me some tomato!). The tomato turned out to be an excellent addition, and I doubt using fresh kale versus frozen made much of a difference. Hubby and I both think next time we’ll try to figure out how to get the bacon to be crispier… we love crispy bacon! All in all, this recipe was awesome! And just in time, as I was getting a little bored with the things I’ve been making recently. This is Whole30 Day 27… we have 3 days until we’ve completed the Whole30 program, and food boredom is not going to mess it up!
Lunch today was the same old stuff… salad with the steak I fixed yesterday, lol. I am still really digging the cilantro-lime mayo, though I must admit, I also add extra lime to mine because lime. is. awesome. I also want to try making some other sauces. This site has some Whole30 compliant sauces and dips that look really good, it’s called Planks, Love & Guacamole. And of course the Whole30 site has a dressings and sauces area as well. I think making some sauces with different flavors will really help me keep this going beyond the 30 days. It’s not that we will be 100% all Whole30 necessarily, but we really like how we feel, so eating like this as much as we can (forever!) will really benefit us greatly!
Dinner tonight was awesome. With the rest of the leftover cilantro-lime mayo, I made guacamole. I added about half a tomato (diced), a little more lime juice, and about 2/3 of an avocado. It was so good! I then made some kale chips and heated up the last of the steak, and that was dinner! It was really good. The steak dipped in guacamole was super fantastic, I could eat that again and again! Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed with the kale chips because they weren’t “oh so good” like I’ve had friends tell me they are. Maybe I did it wrong or something. I have no idea why they weren’t super awesome, but I will certainly try again in the future… maybe I’ll get it right next time! 🙂
As I finish up this post, I can hear fireworks going off around our neighborhood. We didn’t make any plans this year, but I’m hoping we can get a glimpse of a show from our deck.
Whole30 Day 27… HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
