Whole 30: Day 9

Holla! We had a pretty fab day. It was gorgeous out so after naps I dug out this sprinkler ball that my mom bought us last year (and we never used, for some reason) and set it up for the kids. Jack FREAKED OUT, Isla took a minute to warm up to it, and Chloe got the hell out of there.

Brian and I met up for a little lunch date while the kids were at school. HG Sply Co. is a dream if you’re eating paleo or Whole 30. My favorite is the build-your-own bowl where you get to just layer a bunch of veggies, meat and toppings. Today mine had spicy roasted broccoli with bacon, mushrooms, peppers, Mexican-style pork and guacamole:

So good. Brian tried the Burgerstack- a bowl with sweet potato hash, lettuce, tomato, avocado and a wagyu beef patty, topped with a fried egg. I had a bite and it was pretty fab as well.

Post-lunch selfie, because we’re cool like that.

I went to bed way too late last night and then was up early this AM, so tonight I just kind of phoned dinner in. I mean, as much as you can on Whole 30. I just sauteed shredded brussels sprouts and mushrooms in some avocado oil, then threw in some leftover roasted butternut squash and a diced chicken sausage and topped it all with avocado. I also added garlic powder and a splash (or eight) of balsamic:

So there’s our day. Still feeling good! No crazy carb cravings. I took the kids for donuts before school this AM and wasn’t even tempted. I do miss my coffee drive-thru’s, but I just cannot drink it black. No. Someone needs to invent mini containers of coconut milk so I can tote those around like a crazy person and actually go through Starbucks again. Is that too much to ask?

    where do you buy your chicken sausage? who has the best? I just tried a bite yesterday for the first time and it was good. It was from Costco with spinach and cheese in the sausage.

      Hey Susan! I really like all of the chicken sausage at Trader Joe’s- the spinach fontina and spicy Italian are my faves. The turkey kielbasa there is good, too. Also like Aidell’s chicken-apple sausage (from Costco but I think you can find it other places)
