Wow, I am one week away from completing the Whole30 challenge! Yahoo! Today, woke up not feeling so great (female problems), so I have been taking things very easy. This afternoon, when I was finally doing a little better, I came up with a meal plan for the week: paleo meatloaf, veggie hash with grass-fed beef, pumpkin soup, tuna salad, bone broth, and walnut pesto with spaghetti squash. I will be cooking a little more this week because we are going out-of-town for doctor’s appointments, and I will need to have meals with me for the road trip.
Breakfast – My sweet potato, green apple, and egg hash with cinnamon. I love it!
Lunch – Leftover chocolate chili with spinach and avocado. This stuff is even better as leftovers. So good!
Dinner – Apple Cinnamon Pork Chops (take two, without the burnt parts this time). 🙂 I follow a similar recipe to Sarah Fragoso’s Apple Shallot Pork Chops from Everyday Paleo. http://everydaypaleo.com/hog-heaven/
I rubbed cinnamon and sea salt on the pork chops, then seared them in a skillet with coconut oil for about 2 minutes on each side. I forgot to sear them last time, and it really does make a difference in flavor…so worth it! I pureed 1 apple with a little water and some cinnamon in the blender and put that at the bottom of the crock pot. Then I placed the seared pork chops in the crock pot. I diced up two apples and added that on top of the pork chops. Then I sprinkled more cinnamon on top of everything and left it on low. This is one of my husband’s favorites! I love it too! Pork chops do love apples. 🙂
I am on the hunt for a fun t-shirt to purchase to reward myself for making it through the Whole30. Here are some of my favorites so far:
It’s going to be a tough decision to pick one. Which one is your favorite? 🙂
