Day 6 - Whole30

Since starting and completing my first Whole30 in March 2014 I have been reading and researching different Paleo website, blogs and cookbooks to try to help me understand what it was all about, how it was different from the Whole30 and why people do it.  A few of the websites that have helped me transition from the Whole30 challenge to a moderate Paleo diet are listed below:

The reason why I bring this up is while walking through Costco this morning I found one of the cookbooks I have been looking to get for a little while and couldn't resist but to get it.  Going through the cookbook I found many different recipes that I can't wait to try when my Whole30 is over!  Sauces, soups, salads, sea food, chicken, beef and even EXCITED!


Today was another day of no hard work-out...but there were some dog walks and mild conditioning through out the day.  I feel so helpless when my back is in this state, but luckily it only lasts about a week, which it has almost been.

This morning I realized that today is my last full day here and that my 'vacation' is almost over.  Kind of sad to go back to go work, but happy to see my family.  One of my goals for today is to use up all the extra food that I made or bought while up here.

Goal #1 - use up the 3 almost brown bananas...

I was going to make banana pancakes but then I realized that didn't feel like standing in front of the stove top for that long this morning...thus Banana-Almond Butter Scrambled Eggs were born!

I followed a normal banana pancake recipe, the Whole30 kind.

1 ripe banana
2 eggs
1 TBSP Almond Butter

Since I had 3 bananas to use up...

3 ripe bananas
6 eggs
2 large spoonfulls of Almond Butter
Step 1: Mash up the bananas
Step 2: add rest of the ingredients
Step 3: pour into heated pan (over med-low) and scramble like you would eggs until done

Makes enough for 3-4 people

  • Grapes
  • Sweet Potato
  • Steamed Zucchini
  • Chicken Breast

  • 2nd serving of Banana-Almond Butter-Scrambled Eggs
  • Mixed greens salad and Craisins
  • Grapes
