Cuisine: Whole30

Rustic Balsamic Eggplant (Whole30)

Rustic Balsamic Eggplant (Whole30)

If you are new, we are huge about shopping at Aldi. In fact, shopping the cheapest store is one of my biggest points in How to Meal Plan/Shop/Prep on a Budget. But I’ve got to be honest about something: we occassionally get sick of the produce […]

Dairy Free Sausage Gravy

Dairy Free Sausage Gravy

This recipe comes courtesy of my husband, who is a huge “biscuits and gravy” fan. The problem? After he did a round of Whole30, he realized that dairy really doesn’t agree with him. I could’ve told you that years ago because of the, ahem, effects, […]

Three Ingredient Roasted Carrots

Three Ingredient Roasted Carrots

I have always hated cooked carrots, until I made these three ingredient roasted carrots. Truth be told, there was a similar recipe within the Well Fed Weeknights Cookbook for “Everything Carrots.” My lazy (read: extremely busy as we all are) self knew this title meant […]

Pickled Eggs from the UP

Pickled Eggs from the UP

I went to school in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Being from Alaska, I never looked into the weather in the location of my school studies. Instead, I made the assumption that “anywhere would be better” as far as the weather was concerned. I was […]

Instant Pot Whole30 Pulled Pork Carnitas Tacos (Whole30, Paleo, GF, DF)

Instant Pot Whole30 Pulled Pork Carnitas Tacos (Whole30, Paleo, GF, DF)

When I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner this week, his instant reaction was: “pork tacos.” I don’t think we’ve ever eaten these together so I don’t know where it came from. This seemed like the perfect time to come up with an […]

Instant Pot Veggie Broth

Instant Pot Veggie Broth

Did you know thta you can use your veggie scraps to make vegetable broth? I had heard this but it sounded a little intimidating. Again, just like with ghee and bone broth, I was wrong. It’s SUPER easy and even more so with my Instant […]

Whole30 White Chicken Chili (Slow-Cooker)

Whole30 White Chicken Chili (Slow-Cooker)

Today was a day of busy house-things after a week of work travel. TBH I didn’t want to meal prep. So I told myself I was going to make up a crockpot recipe that I could truly just toss in the ingredients and let it […]

Sue’s Midwest Whole30 Chicken Gumbo

Sue’s Midwest Whole30 Chicken Gumbo

Earlier today, when my husband told me what he was going to make for dinner, I knew it needed to be put on here. This recipe is a twist on my mother-in-law’s recipe for a soup/chicken gumbo, which I’m 99% sure was taken off a […]

Whole30 Sesame Chicken

Whole30 Sesame Chicken

Today, my husband had a meal request. He told me he wanted “American style Chinese” for dinner. You see, I grew up in an area where authentic Chinese food was available, and when I moved to the Midwest was beyond horrified with what is considered […]

Spicy Bacon Wrapped Dates (Whole 30)

Spicy Bacon Wrapped Dates (Whole 30)

If you are looking for a super fast, super easy, and super delicious appetizer LOOK NO FURTHER. It was Labor Day weekend, and we were invited to a football game party. My sweet husband forgot to mention this to me until the morning of, leaving […]
