Purslane and baby beet greens

I thinned our baby beets and cleared much of the purslane, but grabbed some choice clusters to pack into our tacos later.

But what do you eat on vegetarian Whole30?

We’re on our second round of vegetarian Whole30, and it has gotten to the point that when people ask me what we eat on such a “restrictive” diet, I sometimes don’t even know because it’s come to be such a habit. The only thing not vegan in our diet is eggs, and we try not […]

Potholes & Whole30 Sushi

Ugh, so today was such a weird (but overall good) day. On my way to tap class last night, I hit an enormous, unavoidable pothole on 95N (right in front of the mall); it ate my hubcap and bent my rim. I didn’t notice the rim was bent until this morning; in fact, I hadn’t […]

Whole30 Chile Relleno

I’m so full right now that I can hardly type, but I wanted to share what just under 400 calories can look like. Let’s look at the profile, tho… 30% of daily recommended protein w/o the flesh? LOL Nearly 50% rda fiber? And the other nutrients aren’t shabby either, look: This is the best. One […]

Nime Chow Salad

So this salad would not be Whole30 compliant if I were not adapting it for vegetarian. Legumes are off the list for Whole30 if you’re a meat-eater, but I use legumes a little bit, and since peanuts are a legume, they are technically off the menu. That said, I have peanut powder which is super […]

Whole30 “Lasagne” Soup

Every Sunday is prep day at home, and every Sunday we make a big soup that will carry us through the week. Most of the time, it is what we call “Lasagne” soup. Whole30 restricts grains and dairy, so basically Lasagne soup is really just Tomato vegetable soup, but hey: whatever. We use thinly sliced […]

Whole30 Compliant Phô

My mood today is much improved. I’m starting to feel more like my regular self – still a little tired, but not too much. I think this is day 6. I’m so glad I had opportunity to go visit with Eve in her new apartment today. It’s so cute! I truly wish we had more […]

R2D5

Seriously: today hit me like a brick. I am so tired, I can hardly even stand it. I know it will pass by tomorrow, but it isn’t entirely from Whole30 – it’s just been a long, emotionally-taxing week. Skip over my drama and head straight to Whole30 I found out an old (not in age) […]

Unloaded “Baked” Potato

Round two, Day 4? I don’t even know, tbh. We’re in that weird space where we feel kind of blah. This is to be expected, as the Whole30 Timeline does predict rather accurately. The first time we did Whole30 was in January, so when I had a sniffly nose and congested head, I just chalked […]

Jackfruit & Tofu Tikka Masala

We’re doing our second round of Vegetarian Whole30, and we’re super excited about it. Justin made a beautiful Jackfruit & Tofu Tikka Masala.  He used this recipe, except he didn’t really follow it.  Instead of cream, he used cashew milk, and he omitted the butter and honey, and added cubed potatoes. When we cook up […]

Feeling Juicy!

Im feeling much better today. I didn’t risk it by getting up unnecessarily early, of course; had coffee in bed and dreamed of fresh juice. I thought I’d drop into Benefit Juice Bar on my way ho me from yoga, but logistics disagreed.

Zero Waste Cupcakes

Anybody who really knows me, knows how much I dislike wasting things, so when I have opportunity to use up the last bits of stuff into new things, I’m all over it. For breakfast today, we had Justin’s famous oatmeal and black coffee.  Last night, though, we had an after-dinner coffee, so when Justin went […]

Vegetable Sandwich & Blubharb Tarts

I’m falling way behind, folks, but I’m in for the month!  I’m not going to blog the repeats that we eat because we tend to eat the same things over and over; however, this sandwich – while it is a relative staple on our lunch menu – was extraordinary and worth blogging about.  Justin picks up these great rolls […]

“Egg” Seasoning the Veganing

Just about the only thing I think we really miss having is egg. As luck would have it, there is this amazing spice called Kala Namak and it tastes just like hardboiled egg yolk. Kala Namak is also called Black Salt, Indian Black Salt, or Himalayan Black Salt. You should be able to find this […]
