21 Whole30 breakfasts

As I’ve mentioned before, preparation is key to eating well and keeping your life in balance. Life is busy. I take time each week to plan out my meals – it soothes me. So for weekday mornings when I need to join the rat race and hit London’s financial island (Canary Wharf) I like to have breakfast ready for me, so as not to delay my start to the day. Read More

Breakfast frittata

For me, preparation is key to my success on Whole30. One can’t be caught short when you get home from work and you have zero ideas for dinner, or worse, you have zero food for dinner. Before my weekly shop on the weekend I usually take 10-15 minutes to plan out what I am going to eat that week. I like to throw in a new recipe or two to keep it interesting, but quite often we will have a couple of our favourites each week which I have on a rotating schedule.Read More

Carb-free meatballs

Obviously, most meatball recipes are carb-free – but these ones are so satisfying and filling you don’t even need the spaghetti! Phil brought me back this bowl from Barcelona when he went to visit (we weren’t dating), but he knew of my passion for collecting crockery from all over the world, as long as they contain the colour navy.

Whole30, round three: what I ate in week four

This Whole30 feels like its going way faster than the last one. It just feels normal now, like I’m just eating. I don’t overthink it all (which is new for me). Before the last Whole30 and this one I cleared all my cupboard and fridge. It’s nice to know I can just go for the food in my house and eat it, no guilt. I definitely recommend this, especially on your first time – it’s so easy to fall off the wagon if there are quick, easy treats at arms length.

I bought an immersion blender this week. So shit got exciting. Hello, Paleo Mayo!

If you’ve missed the previous posts, weeks one, two and three are here, here and here.

Recipe: Tuscan herbs and almond flour crumbed chicken with homemade Paleo mayo

Crispy, crumbed chicken has long been a firm favourite of mine. So as soon as I nailed the paleo mayonnaise I decided I needed something scrumptious to dunk in it, and what goes better than crispy chicken and creamy mayo?!

I had tried making paleo mayo once before but failed miserably when the ingredients didn’t emulsify. On my second attempt, following Michelle’s strict instructions and recipe I had huge success! Phil is a huge mayo fan so was over the moon. You can find the recipe at the above link.

For the chicken, check it out below:

Whole30, round three: what I ate in week three

This week sage has become my favourite herb. So much so, I want to name mine and Phil’s first daughter after it but he’s not having any of it. Especially, if you already know his surname which he shares with a common vegetable (similar to a zucchini/courgette) he’s scared she’ll sound like a recipe. I was all, mate, she’s a reflection of us and I LOVE cooking! He’s still not keen…

You can see week’s one and two here and here. You can see what I ate this week, below:
