Whole 30, Day 21

27 May

Alright everyone, day one in the smoky mountains, and day 21 of the Whole 30 complete.  I started the day with a nice warm cup of java with some coconut milk.  It was just right sitting on the back porch.

For breakfast I was excited to try a find out from yesterday.  On our way into town we stopped at a farmer’s market and there was a gentleman selling fresh, unprocessed bacon.  He smokes it in small batches and uses no sugar or preservatives at all.  Since I have not taken the time to order any Whole 30 friendly bacon, I have been deprived for 20 days.  Not today though!  I scrambled up some eggs, and added some fruit on the side.

 We went swimming after breakfast, and when we got home everyone was starving.  I fixed up some leftover hamburger patties from yesterday, roasted up some okra, and fried up some Fuji apples in a little ghee.

After lunch we took the kids to a local apple orchard and looked around.  Although the apples are not on the trees, we still go to buy some great local produce from the farm.  I got some tomatoes, sweet potatoes, okra, cherry tomatoes, onions, plums, peaches, and some awesome looking local green onions.

Tonight ended with a cup of decaf, and a long sit at the computer writing up a new post.  That’s next to post, catch everyone tomorrow!

      It’s so easy! Cut the apples any way you want to. Add some ghee to your pan and crank the heat up high. When it’s hot throw the apples in and let them cook for 6-8 minutes on high heat moving them pretty frequently. Once they are essentially done add a few tablespoons of water to make a little sauce. If you want to change it up add pecans to the ghee first to toast them, and add some cinnamon at the end. Either way, we eat these alot and they are so very good!

    I devoured your blog and learned so much. I look forward to trying many of the meals you have blogged about. I appreciate that you take the time and effort to share what you have learned. Your site gave me the push I needed to go see my dr and have some baseline tests done so I can see the before and after results and try whole30.
