For the month of January, I’ve been doing a Whole30 challenge (#JanuaryWhole30). What is the Whole30? The challenge is giving up certain food groups like sugar, grains, dairy, and legumes. That means eating only fruit, nuts, meat, and vegetables for thirty days. Think you can do it?
I’m not going to sugarcoat it for you, the Whole30 Challenge is not easy which is why it’s called a challenge. If you don’t get creative with the food you’re making, you will easily get bored with the food you’re eating.
Since it’s the last week of the challenge, Whole30 shared a “non-boring” recipe from Pastured Kitchen in their newsletter, and on Wednesday I gave it a try. I cooked 2 squash, one for me, and one for my partner, and even he (non-Whole30) loved it!
This meal will leave you feeling satisfied, and as if you just ate Thanksgiving dinner. You will be transported to holidays from your past as you smell the familiar aroma of fresh sage, rosemary, apples, and onions.
Even after your last bite, you still won’t believe this is a Paleo/Whole30 recipe. Feel free to share with friends, family, and co-workers.
Hey, you never know, this could end up being your new favorite side-dish at Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner later this year. Enjoy! You can see the full recipe on Pastured Kitchen, click here.
