Whole30 Meals- Week Three

Whole30 Week 3 Meal Plan

Whoa, can you all believe that we are already prepping for Week three of our Whole30 Challenge? I’m feeling pretty good! The icky side effects of sugar and grain withdrawal finally seem to have left me and I’m feeling alert and light and sleeping like a log! This week I have a lot of new recipes I’m excited to share with you all! I tend to load up on the new recipes the first half of the week because I’m just so excited to share them with you all! First up: Cinnamon Banana Chia Seed Pudding- this stuff is GREAT! It’s loaded with nutrients and antioxidants AND tastes amazing! I’m also introducing one of my all-time Whole30 Favorites, Taco Salad! It’s so good and filled with flavor that you will not miss all those extra add-ons!  ** Here’s a fair warning Disclaimer for the meal plan: Sometimes the meals I put on the plan aren’t “full” meals in the eyes of the Whole30 program because they are lacking some portion that is necessary to create a balanced meal. They might be missing good fat, protein, or veggies. Mostly this happens because I don’t haven enough room to add them in my editing software and I put priority on listing the meals you might need a recipe for- so make sure that you read over the Whole30 Program Rules and are eating complete meals! ** The recipes for all of these meals are here: Whole 30 Recipes- Sauces and Dressings Whole30 Meals and…

Whole 30 Recipes- Cashew Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates

Bacon Wrapped Dates

Did someone say bacon?? I just received my shipment of sugar free, nitrate free, and all around Whole30 compliant bacon from US Wellness Meats! I’m so excited for bacon to be back in my life during this Whole30 journey, I just cannot tell you! In my never ending quest to keep Whole 30 recipes new and fun, I’m turning to an old holiday favorite with a few twists along the way. This recipe combines a lot of things I really love to create a great Whole30 dish for any time of day. Dates boast a host of nutritional benefits ranging from Potassium, Vitamin B and Iron and gives you a great mix of healthy fat and protein.  Cashew “cheese” is simply processed cashews, lemon juice, and water. I love filling dates with this mixture because it gives the meal a great does of fat and the moisture from the mixture keeps the dates super creamy! And, of course, just like some people believe everything is better fried, I believe everything is better wrapped in bacon. This bacon in particular gives a delicious salty and crispy element. I just love it!  If you want to brown your bacon up like I did, just give them a quick broil at the end of the cooking time.    I used my favorite kitchen gadget- the Ninja food processor– to make our cashew “cheese”  If you liked this recipe, you should check out my Facebook page The Hungry Mommy and Instagram @the_hungry_mommy for daily recipes and food inspiration!
