For the time being, we can’t have rice. It’s not Whole 30 approved as it’s a grain. Which is super hard, because when Andy and I are not on the Whole 30 plan, we eat rice like it’s going out of style. So it led us to trying to find a replacement and led Andy to this recipe for cauliflower “rice,” which I was hesitant about, but once we tried it, was so excited. I can’t wait for us to try it with a stir-fry or chicken and broccoli.
The Whole 30
I had a craving for quiche. I could make these all week and just eat different types of quiche. Unfortunately Andy doesn’t like quiche like I do, so this one was just for me. Especially since it’s Whole 30 approved.
So we’re back on The Whole 30 bandwagon, which means that we’re no longer eating any sugar, legumes, grains, alcohol, or dairy. It’s a bachelor’s dream: meat and potatoes, all day, every day.
Which is how Andy and I came to decide on steak tips. Me not wanting another pepper-crusted beef, I went for something new: a citrus and garlic steak tip marinade. Surprisingly, he really liked it. I think I’m going to have to start making some more marinades. I’m taking any suggestions, just as long as they are Whole 30 approved. Thanks!
Let’s be honest. I should be dreaming about bowls of pasta, peanut butter whoopie pies, and mounds of rice, but I’m not. In fact, being on The Whole 30, my mind has changed how I think about food. And I’m not sure yet if that’s a good thing. I don’t have time to consider grabbing a doughnut or going out for dinner, it’s too much work to realize it’s against the rules.
