I’m heading into the second week of my Whole30 challenge, and it’s been going well! Better than the first time I did it last summer in fact. This time around, I’m familiar with the “rules” and already have a bunch of Whole30 recipes in my repertoire. I’d like to find a few more kid-friendly recipes for some more variety though, so if you know of any good ones, please let me know in the comments.
I’ve had some junk food cravings here and there, mostly at night, but my most difficult craving hasn’t been for any specific foods, it’s been for beverages. I miss my evening tea and milk, but I’ve really been craving pop (or soda). I tried sparkling water, but it didn’t really satisfy the urge. When I feel the craving, I’ve been drinking some ice cold water and reminding myself that it will pass and how much better I’ll feel at the end of my challenge.
I found last week’s meal plan pretty heavy on the chicken, so I made sure to include a larger variety of proteins this week. The kids’ favourite meal from last week was the spice roasted chicken with apple stuffing though, so I will be making another one this week. We get free range, unmedicated whole roasting chickens from a local farm, and they taste so good! My favourite part is the hearty chicken vegetable soup I make from the chicken bones. It’s a meal in a soup bowl!
Update: I’m super happy to report that two more wonderful bloggers are joining in the
