Hi, there :), it has been a while. It’s still considered spring right now but it feels like summertime here, todays weather was a whopping 94 degrees, the type that makes no one want to leave their home. I spent the day with my baby girl #missteamtoomuch, she is a ball of sass and energy. Boy am I tired, we spent the day going to plum market, it was part torture, because I am doing whole 30. If you are unfamiliar with Whole 30, it’s basically like a lifestyle change, well at least the way you eat. It is 30 days of no processed foods, flour, sugar, grains, most nuts, legumes, alcohol. What you eat is mostly meat, fish, poultry, vegetables, sweet potatoes, potatoes, and fruit in moderation. After the 30 days you reintroduce some groups back in your body to discover which foods work well with your body, and which ones don’t. For a while I was waking up feeling like I was in a physical fight, I had so much inflammation, bad sinus issues, so that’s why I decided to try While 30. Sigh it’s hard, especially working 12 hour and bring unable to eat out. Alas I’m almost three weeks into Whole 30,some days were harder than others, there were days when I was starving after work, too tired to want to cook. But I keep pushing with my hubby Whole has also been doing it since day one. Below is a yummy reminder of spring.
In the spring time it’s great to have things that are refreshing, light and yummy, like this orzo salad, with the caramelized sweet potatoes, fresh oranges, veggies, and pecans. I could use a bowl of that right now, but orzo is non compliant with Whole 30. This recipe was quick and easy, good for dinner, potluck or bbq. I ahead and try it, let me know what you think.
