I’ve started the new year, as some of you know, trying the whole 30 approach.
One of my friends started a support group on Facebook, which has helped me understand and continue to persevere and pursue a healthier version of me!
I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve tried dieting last summer and the pounds just did not want to come off … so I figured something more strict, my body needed to reset, detox to show me some results!
Even though the whole 30 is a lifestyle, not a diet, I truly believe all the “NOS” in the program are just things we know we should remove from our plate, but we just don’t!
I dove in, I’ve been doing it for two weeks, missing coffee like crazy, still not understanding why I can’t eat carrots and beans, can you imagine a Brazilian not eating beans???? See how I’m committed!!! But besides that, the approach has really helped me see some things I needed to remove and that I will not be bringing back after the 30 days are over.
I will be sharing my journey with you and some recipes I’ve created to make this new approach more delicious and palatable to me!
Today I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes, super easy, in 5 minutes, you have the most delicious and nutritious lunch!
1 Tbsp Whole 30 compliant Mayo or homemade Mayo
1 Tsp of honey mustard
Salt and Pepper to taste
4 lettuce leaves
Boil 2 eggs, making sure they are hard boiled, not soft. Let it cool and separate whites and yolks, cut egg whites in small pieces and reserve; mash yolks with a fork, add mayo, salt, pepper and mustard and mix it all together, adding the egg whites.
Place the mixture on top of the lettuce which was washed and pre-arranged on a small plate.
5 mins. and you will have the most delicious lunch! I actually use lettuce instead of tortillas and make all types of recipes, like “tacos” and tuna salad, using lettuce instead of the tortillas.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my lunch recipe! I will be sharing more this month as I am learning how to cook with the ingredients allowed by the program!
