thursday, august 23 2012 Whole30 week 4 menu – aug.22.12

Well, folks, week four is upon us. Please excuse the late posting for this week’s Whole30 grocery list, but I believe the wait was worth it! I trust that by this point, if you are still on the wagon you are on the path of success! Staying strong on Whole30 has been fun in our house…in fact, we may take things to the next level next week as we take a stab at following the autoimmune protocol variation of the Whole30 program. We will post updates and challenges along the way.

Here is week 4’s list!

"There’s nothing I like more than waking up in the evening to the delicious aroma of seared meat. (For all you newbies, I’m not sleeping away the day because I’m lazy or depressed — I’m a shift worker.) Today was my lucky day: not only did my hubby entertain the kids all day, he also made dinner! I’m telling you, when someone else makes dinner, the food takes on a mysterious, MSG-like, flavor-enhancing quality. What was on the menu? Butter-lettuce wrapped grass fed New Zealand lamb burgers topped with a fried egg, homemade guacamole, sautéed mushrooms and onions — with roasted carrot fries on the side. As an added bonus, dinner was on the table in around 30 minutes, which wa..."

"1. Prepare the grill, or turn the broiler on high. 2. Mix oil and chipotle powder together in a small dish. 3. Brush onto both sides of the steak. 4. Grill for around 5 minutes on one side, and 3 more minutes on the other. Or, broil 3 minutes on one side, and 2 minutes on the other. 5. Remove to a plate, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. 6. Grill the pineapple rings for 2-3 minutes per side (or broil for 45 seconds to 1 minute per side). 7. Cut the pineapple into small chunks and place in a medium bowl. 8. Add red bell pepper, red onion, cilantro and lime juice and mix together. 9. Slice the steak thinly, and serve with pineapple salsa."

"Spicy, protein packed salad with a refreshing roasted jalapeno vinaigrette with grapefruit! My husband was ravenous at the end of Day 1 of the Paleo Challenge. He wanted a big salad full of protein. This was the perfect meal to satisfy the Day 1 hunger. He actually made this chicken, which is spicy and delicious. The vinaigrette was very simple and also spicy. I added a bunch of veggies to the salad and topped it all off with some guacamole. Enjoy! "

"I have now completed Day 16 of Whole30. Since I will be traveling this week and away from my beloved kitchen I decided to make a "fancy" meal for dinner. I think this would make a great holiday or Sunday dinner. "

"This dish absolutely screams summer - a light fish seasoned with the bright flavors of dill and lemon, accompanied by fresh-from-the-garden squash and tomatoes. We have been trying to incorporate more seafood into our diet, especially now that I am in school and learning all of the health benefits of nutrient dense foods and diversity in our diets (i.e. although bacon has a big place in my heart, bacon for breakfast every morning ain't gonna cut it). Speaking of diversity, one of the lessons from my first course that really struck me is the importance of variety in our diets. Eating the same foods each day, even healthy foods, is not going to provide you with the most nutrition. Different..."

"This chicken was absolutely the most moist and tender roast chicken Brent or I have ever made. We were in complete awe of our success. The complex flavors and strong aromas had us smiling and drooling for days. It actually took us two days to make it, because our efforts were very much trial and error. But it was worth it. You must try this!"

"No really, that's the disputed origin of the scotch egg, Moghul 'Narcissus Meatballs'. To be honest I prefer one name to the other. You know, I've never had a scotch egg before. I've seen them obviously, watching me from behind the deli counter, teasing me with their bready goodness...there's a running joke in this house that I'd eat shit if it was covered in breadcrumbs or cheese...*writes down blog post idea Anyway, after the meatloaf post you sexy people were telling me it looked like a giant scotch egg and I had to investigate. Ingredients needed to make my meaty balls 800g of pork mince a handful of coriander salt and pepper 2 chopped spring onions 1 tablespoon of thy..."
