This is it. I’m finally doing my first Whole30. And I think I’m gonna die this month. I mean, I would consider my diet pretty healthy. But then, I eat almost everything, even if I know that sometimes I don’t feel the best after certain meals. But chocolate, you know. And wine. And the occasional pasta.
It’s still such warm weather here in Australia which for me means lots of BBQ and lighter meals. That’s why I made the Sticky Ginger Chicken Wings yesterday (we were so hungry that I just wasn’t able to make pictures, but I will be definitely making the wings soon again) and this Asian Style Coleslaw on a side. At least the salad is served cold so I could snap a couple pics before dinner.
I love curry. All the possible versions of it. Meat or vegetarian, sweet or spicy, I’m for all. But let’s be honest, it can be quite a lot of work sometimes to make a nice curry at home. Especially when using beef or lamb the cooking process can take up to few hours. And that is exactly when Crock Pot comes in handy.
This recipe shows my (paleo friendly) version of one Eastern classic – savory Sauerkraut Soup with Klobasa (Paprika Sausage). This rich soup is a fixed star in the kitchens of Middle and Eastern Europe. Yet it has many forms as every Slavic country has their own interpretation of it and almost every family carries their own unique recipe.
So, back to reality. When we returned from our amazing trip to Austria (I will totally write about it later) the real life stuff hit me pretty hard. We have just 3 weeks left before our trip to Thailand (and moving to Australia after that, you can read a bit more about it in the Big Step story) and I’m starting to freak out a little.
What are your plans for Valentine’s day this year? Do you celebrate this day somehow or do you think there is no need for that?
