Live Real. Eat Real.

Whole30 – Day 3

I’m still on track – and I actually ate yesterday.

Breakfast was 3 cups of coffee with coconut milk.  Yes, I’ve been boring this week, breakfast-wise.

Lunch – I had a some grass-fed ground beef in the freezer that needed to be used up, so I made up a couple of large hamburger patties, seasoned them with salt, pepper and garlic powder and cooked them up on the cast-iron griddle until they were a nice medium inside.  I also had some leftover fried green tomatoes and roasted poblano peppers (our garden is overrun with both tomatoes and poblanos) as well as some fresh pineapple in the fridge.  The result was this:

It was quite tasty, and very filling.

For dinner, Beloved had taken some country-style pork ribs out of the freezer.  I rubbed them with a spice mixture of cumin, garlic, chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper and seared them in lard, then braised them in water until tender.  I added some coconut milk, red pepper flakes and more of the roasted poblano peppers and reduced that down until there was a nice sauce for it.  I served it over a medley of shredded zucchini, yellow squash and carrots and alongside some Japanese sweet potatoes I mashed with ghee, a touch of coconut milk and cinnamon (surprisingly good).

I’ll probably post the full recipe sometime next week.

And I’ll be back tomorrow with what I ate today – have a great Saturday, everyone!

I didn’t get to try to burger, but this is indicative of what she pulls out of her ass fridge garden. Amazing.

But I DID get to eat the country style pork ribs and all I can say is that all y’all simply must insist on getting a recipe.

Alex says:

Looks like you’re doing great so far! I’m rooting for you! I’m also rooting for that recipe being posted…YUM!

And now I’m hungry! I have SO many tomatoes. It’s ridiculous. I think I’m going to make them into tomato sauce tomorrow and freeze it …

Both meals look beautiful…I’m impressed how you can just pull this stuff out of your…garden? so quickly 😉
