    Can you believe this is the very first soup recipe on the blog?! I am not a soup person whatsoever, but the seasons changing always has everyone craving a comforting bowl of soup. Especially Jord who flipping loves a bowl of soup.

    If I eat soup, it needs to be creamy-ish with a hearty base for me to stay full and satisfied. This Creamy Thai Kabocha Squash Soup does just that. It is also full of flavor and has such a unique and delicious taste, you guys are going to love!

    I first had Kabocha squash soup when I was in La Jolla a few months ago and could not get over how delicious it was. So creamy and satisfying. It was the perfect appetizer or light bowl to pair with our meal.

    This Creamy Thai Kabocha Squash Soup is made with New Barn’s Organic Almondmilk. It adds that creamy texture to the soup and a touch of sweetness despite there being no added sugar! The soup is also Whole30-approved since New Barn Unsweetened Organic is the Whole30-approved nut milk and basically saved me when Jord did Whole30 earlier this year. We also made those breakfast salads using NewBarn in the dressing too.. definitely check them out! Continue Reading

    Salads can be a breakfast thing too, ya know?

    I’m the first to admit that I crave sweet things more than savory most of the time. Especially when it comes to breakfast items. I’m more likely to be eating a smoothie bowl, pancakes or banana bread for breakfast than anything else. But I am a huge savory breakfast for lunch or dinner person. I eat eggs with my lunch or dinner on the reg.

    Back in the winter when Jord did Whole30, we pretty much went through two dozen eggs a week. It was absolutely insane but it is the easiest way to add extra protein + fat to a meal. I make bowls of pasta and add an egg. I make breakfast tacos with eggs. I make a burger and put an egg on it. Pretty much anything in our house has an egg on top.

    But when J was on Whole30, it was really challenging trying to find something to make when he needed a quick and easy meal. Whole30 requires a ton of prep work and planning. We used to spend hours on the week prepping all of his meals for the week (more on that here). Continue Reading

    Pretty sure if Jord was stranded on an island and could only bring one thing for the rest of his life, it would be buffalo sauce. The kid loves buffalo sauce with pretty much anything. We easily go through a bottle of it a week, if not more.

    Since it has been a few months since J completed Whole30, for the most part he went back to his “normal” eating habits. He has always had a balanced perspective on food and diet so it’s not like he went back to chicken fingers and mozzarella sticks daily. But he did start having bread, oats and rice more. AKA more grains. I am likely the culprit of this since sometimes it is just easier to make a tuna sandwich for him for lunch and overnight oats for breakfast.

    Recently he has been asking for some more Whole30-ish meals so we are back on the chia pudding, smoothie and cauliflower rice game. I know smoothies aren’t Whole30 but we use all approved foods. Basically Jord prefers a very paleo-ish diet without the title but pizza and beer on weeks. Continue Reading

    4-ingredient Tuna Avocado Cakes (Whole30)

    4-ingredient Tuna Avocado Cakes for an easy and delicious Whole30 recipe!

    Lunch. Oh lunch. I personally can eat the same thing every single day and be happy. Jord on the other hand gets quite bored, quite easily and cannot. To be honest I am pretty envious of that because eating the same thing everyday isn’t exactly good for us (well at least females). I have been reading a ton about female hormones thanks to Alisa Vitti’s book Woman Code, and my life has officially change.

    More to come there, but she has taught me the importance of switching up your foods a bit each week.

    Jord absolutely loves taking tuna salad though a couple days a week. At first I was so against canned tuna because the mercury levels but when I learned that Safe Catch is super low in mercury (lowest out of any brand), we started to stock up. Then I told my mom and brother who love tuna and now they can’t stop eating Safe Catch. Continue Reading

    If there is one thing that Jord’s Whole30 taught me, it is that snacks are damn HARD on that thing. I know, I know, you aren’t technically supposed to snack much on Whole30, but that wasn’t the case for him. Eating only 3x a day doesn’t work for everyone, especially Jord who really does get hungry in between meals. I always have snacks in my pockets or bags for us when we are walking around or running errands.

    Typically it’s some sort of clean protein bar or something easy. But not many of the bars are Whole30-friendly or approved so that made life a bit challenging. Many have honey or some sort of added sweetener to them. Continue Reading
