Whole30 Week 1 Recap

Whole30 Week 1 Recap

I posted on my social media about a week ago that I had started my very first Whole30! Right—paleo for almost 2 years and have never done a Whole30. That’s so crazy. But I’m doing one now, so no worries.

As a way of trying to stay mindful of what I’m fueling my body with and how I feel overall, I decided I would post weekly recaps of how the Whole30 is going for me.

Okay, to be honest, this is actually day 10, not day 7. It took me a little bit to write this out. But in reality, considering that my 30 days will end on a Monday, it’s safe to say this might become a Whole36 or something. So bear with me.

Ginger Butternut Squash Soup

 

Hey look! A recipe that isn’t a baked good or dessert! This is a big deal!

Of course, dessert isn’t the only thing I eat. However, most of my meals are so basic they aren’t worth sharing a recipe for. But, this Ginger Butternut Squash Soup is an exception. Creamy, popping with spicy ginger, and using one of the world’s best squashes as a base, this soup is definitely worth making.

Layered Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding

Here I am, finally joining in on the PUMPKIN ALL THE THINGS craze. Not that I haven’t made pumpkin the base of my food pyramid already—glance around my Facebook page or Instagram and you’ll see that pumpkin has become a huge part of my life. I might even say we’re going steady.

I’ve been having Bulletproof(R) Pumpkin Spice Lattes every. single. day. There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s actually the most fun and delicious part of my day. It’s a shame I have to rush through it 64% of my mornings to get to work on time. To make sure I have somewhat adequate time for my morning coffee ritual, it’s nice to have breakfasts pre-prepared.

That’s where chia puddings come in.
