Well, I’m officially past week one! I even made homemade granola for husband last night and didn’t eat a piece. It was tempting, though, and our house smelled like Christmas from the honey, vanilla and cinnamon aroma emanating from the oven. I was tempted again tonight when I made dinner. I made rice for hubs. Bad idea. Have I told you my biggest weakness is starch? Ugh.
Tonight’s meal was especially delicious:
Beef with broccoli. This is husband’s, obviously. I didn’t touch the rice! Promise!
What I Ate Today:
Breakfast – Hard boiled egg, Apple Pie LARABAR
Lunch – Salad with leftover chicken satay, bacon, tomatoes and a little red wine vinegar
Snack – Apple, grapes
Dinner – Beef with broccoli
I tweaked the recipe a little bit. I used canola oil in the beginning because I always end up burning sesame oil when I try to cook with it the whole way through. I added a couple teaspoons of it when I only had a couple minutes left of cooking time and you can really taste it. I also only added half of the amount of red pepper flakes… and it was still a little bit spicy for us.
I’m sure you could easily adapt the recipe and make it non-Whole30 by substituting soy sauce for the raw coconut aminos. It’s a really great recipe either way. My husband has been pleasantly surprised with our meals!
