Whole30 Day 1 – Determination

Beetroot and Sweet Potato Hash

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.

Coconut Flour Savory Pancakes

Coconut Flour Savory Pancakes

Are you a sweet breakfast person? Or do you better give way to the beautiful satisfying savory heaven like eggs and bacon in the morning? Yeah, I guess you can say which brekky I prefer. The only sweet exception would be probably breakfast bowls as you can see in Chocolate Protein Smoothie Bowl. However when I have the time I would definitely go for the salty version. Like I did this morning with the Coconut Flour Savory Pancakes.

Asian Style Coleslaw

Asian Style Coleslaw

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.

Lemon Poppy-Seed Muffins with Coconut Flour and Stevia

Lemon Poppy-Seed Muffins with Coconut Flour and Stevia

It’s been almost a month since my last post. I can’t believe that. Time went so fast. Well but I definitely got my lesson about planning the posting schedule better the next time. It’s not that I didn’t feel like writing. If you followed my Instagram or Facebook, you would know that I travelled a bit thru Thailand the last few weeks. And as much as I thought I would be able to write and post while there, it did not happened at all.

Crock Pot Beef Curry

Crock Pot Beef Curry

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.

Sauerkraut Soup with Klobasa (Paprika Sausage)

Sauerkraut Soup with Klobasa (Paprika Sausage)

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.

This Butternut Squash Cream Soup with Turmeric is a perfect dish for winter weather.

At least for the terrible weather afflicting our little country now. Continue reading

Spicy Vegetable Hash

Spicy Vegetable Hash

I think breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. OK, I know that science in the last few years proved that this dogma is not actually so correct. But I like to stick with it.

If a poor brekky doesn’t gratify my fussy morning palates I will be most likely cranky till lunch. God forbid that I wouldn’t have any breakfast for some reason. That’s just dark…

Celeriac and Carrot Fritters

Celeriac and Carrot Fritters

These Celeriac and Carrot Fritters are a great companion to many meals. You can definitely enjoy them as they are. Which means don’t worry about the cutlery, get your hands a bit messy and maybe even use the fritters as a scoop for your favorite dip. My Avocado Jalapeno Dip would serve just great for that.

Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Orange Juice

Brussel sprouts with bacon and orange juice

Do you know anyone who liked brussel sprouts as a kid? Because I seriously can’t think of one single person. I personally used to hate them when I was small. I actually know few people who “can’t do it” even in their adulthood. Which is really sad, because brussel sprouts rock.

Today’s easy recipe covers my favorite way how to prepare them as a side dish. You can skip the bacon for a lighter version if you want, but who would possibly like to skip bacon?
