Whole30/ Paleo Valentine’s Day Dinner for Two

Whole30 Valentine's Dinner

Oh Valentine’s Day, thanks to genius advertisers and great marketing campaigns, don’t we all equate this holiday to chocolate and teddy bears? This year, Valentine’s Day is falling smack dab in the middle of our second round of Whole30 so, needless to say, we will not be partaking in the chocolate indulgence.  Even though we won’t be partaking in any chocolatey goodness or eating out at some fancy restaurant, I still want our Valentine’s Dinner to be special…so I’m breaking out the big guns and cooking my Perfect Tenderloin *substitute butter with ghee for Whole30* paired with Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus and topped with my new favorite: Bearnaise Sauce! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite Whole30 and Paleo options for a perfect and romantic Valentine’s Dinner. Be careful, some of these need slight adjustments to be made compliant!                        Some other great options: One Dish Garlic and Herb Pork Tenderloin Pesto Mashed Potatoes Tomato Soup Lobster Tails– *replace butter with ghee*   Do you all have any special plans for Valentine’s Day? What’s on your menu?    If you liked this post you should check out  my Facebook The Hungry Mommy, Instagram @the_hungry_mommy, and Pinterest The Hungry Mommy! See you there!

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!
