Week 3 meal plan and perp

Don’t be afraid to entertain while on Whole30. Make what you want to eat and add a nice loaf of soft bread with a sweet treat at the end. It really doesn’t have to be difficult (if bread and sweets are a weakness for you, toss them at the end of the night. Or better yet freeze it for when whole30 is over)

I love entertaining. And because my husband and I are on the whole30 didn’t stop me from cooking exactly what we wanted to eat. In fact, I made a new recipe (which will now be apart of our rotation) and everyone enjoyed the meal. Sadly, because I was having such a nice night, I didn’t snap a photo of our beautiful meal.

I made these beauties (broiled prosciutto wrapped asparagus)  http://nomnompaleo.com/post/3159900635/broiled-prosciutto-wrapped-asparagus-spears, grilled some rib eye steaks and served with my new favorite  salad. Brussels sprouts with pomegranate and bacon (recipe to come later this week)

Heading into the third week of whole30 can feel a little daunting. Even though you may be noticing non scale victories, the newness of the program has worn off, your list of new recipes are probably dwindling and you are dreading spending your Sunday in the kitchen, preparing. Now is the time to look back on your last two weeks and take note of the meals you really enjoyed, or had extra of. These are good recipes to repeat this week.
Also you have probably noticed by my meal pictures, that my menu varies from day to day. Some days I forget to take meat out of the freezer or don;t feel like something I have planned. But that’s the beauty of preparing for the week. You know you have the food there, you get to choose what day you eat it.
My week three meal plan is going to include my staple corned beef, chicken vegetable soup and chia pudding. Here is what my plan looks like:
