Sous Vide Egg Bite

Sous Vide Egg Bite

These are absolutely delicious. I have made them with 6 eggs as well to fill the containers and just as good. I am going to test these without cottage cheese and cream to make them whole30 compliant. Definitely a yummy breakfast on the go.

Instant Pot: Hard Boiled Eggs

Not a complicated recipe but best way I have found to cook eggs in the Instant Pot. I use the 5-5-5 cooking method for cooking my eggs. These are the easiest eggs to peel.

These were amazing. I loved the sauce. We made it with Filet Mignon and baked broccoli. The broccoli was baked on a cookie sheet with olive oil and seasoning. I tossed the broccoli and seasoning and baked for 20 mins on 425 degrees.

Day 2 – round ?

I decided to start another whole30. This time I am shooting for whole60 or even 90. I have been great staying with it for 30 days but my re-introduction has been horrendous to say the least. I successfully made it thru Thanksgiving (Nov whole30) making compliant meals then fell right back into bad eating in December. I kept making excuses; I am sick, after vacation I will eat better, after New Years and then I was asked to wait until after my birthday.

I was asked by friends to start blogging again. Share my recipes, etc. I finally got an Instant Pot that I have been wanting for over a year now and been loving cooking with and experimenting converting recipes to it.

So here I am starting to rid the sugar out of my body again and get  back into running. Oh do I miss running but that knowing that first run is going to be miserable, keeps holding me back. I signed up for my longest run to date in August so that is giving me some motivation to get back into it.

One of the very first recipes I tried in the Instant Pot after reading how amazing it was on all the groups. It did not disappoint.

Sickness has struck our home. I modified a few different recipes to come up with one that worked for us.

Simple dinner on a busy day

We made lettuce taco wraps and instead of rice I had sweet potato/cauliflower rice. Was a great meal put together without a whole lot of prep. These steamed bags are a good alternative when I don’t have something prepared.

Summer salad

I enjoy a nice summer salad in the heat of the summer. Pair it up with my favorite whole30 approved dressing and it really hits the spot. When I did a whole30 3 years ago there were no easy to go to dressings. We made them ourselves. That mindset is still with me for most things. This line of dressings is an exception for me. Create from scratch so you know what’s going into your foods.

Starting week 2 (d8) of my whole30. I made it thru the kill all things phase and wasn’t as bad as the last two have been. Now if I only keep it up this time, I wouldn’t have those days. This w30 is really to concentrate on making better decisions and lifestyle changes.
