Heyyyy! Friday is here! Get excited!
I’ve got some fun things planned for the weekend, including my very first Dri-Tri at Orangetheory. It’s a 5k, 2,000 meter row, and 300 rep weight challenge. I’m oddly excited about it. Oh, and it starts at 6 AM on Saturday! Yikes.
Today’s post is inspired by all things Whole30. I’d love to know what you are loving lately.
Friday faves 16: Whole30 edition
SuperSeedz gourmet pumpkin seeds – loving these right now. The “somewhat spicy” ones definitely have a kick, but they are great mixed in with other nuts. Note: not every kind is Whole30 approved so make sure you read the ingredients!
Shredded coconut – I love the big flakes of coconut, but can never seem to find them unsweetened. I spotted these on a markdown shelf at The Fresh Market and scooped them up. I’ve been topping my chia pudding with these and tossing them with some nuts to make trail mix.
Coconut aminos – what Paleo dreams are made of. Coconut aminos are a soy-free alternative to soy sauce. I use it for sauces and dressings. I also use it for dipping sushi.
Plantain chips – this is my go-to W30 snack now.
Kombucha – seriously refreshing and a great way to improve your good gut bacteria! Just sayin’ :).
Nello’s red sauce – you’d be surprised how many marinara sauces have sugar in them. I like Nello’s because it’s W30 approved and has only a few ingredients. Plus it tastes amazing!
Apple season = the best.
Chia seeds – obviously, great for chia pudding, but I also add them to my meals and dressings for some added omega-3s and fiber.
Coconut milk – I’ve been using it in my coffee and to make sauces. Super duper tasty.
Mantova olive oil spray – I LOVE this spray. It doesn’t contain any harmful propellants or soy (hard to find in a cooking spray). I use it all.the.time.
Cashew butter – I’ve been going a bit overboard on this nut butter. I think I just need to finish it to get it out of the house. Yes, totally.
Cacao nibs – Cacao nibs provide a good dose of flavonoids, magnesium, calcium, and other fatty acids. They have a chocolately taste and provide a bit of crunch.
Whole30 approved cupcakes.…………just kidding. I wish these existed! I want to shove one in my face right now.
The end. What are you loving lately? Have a great weekend, folks!
