I’ve been eating various food lately, from healthy to fried to raw. People have been cooking a lot and I view it as being rude not to taste what they make (even though sometimes it’s full of green pepper which I can’t stand since the day I was born). Also, my sister was here on vacation for the past 2 weeks and I had to make do with eating out, having loads of food at home and not being able to control my cravings. But now that the routine has set again, I’ve decided to get back on a healthy lifestyle. I’ve been reading a lot about the Whole 30 challenge and about eating natural and whole foods to make one feel better. The Whole 30 Program is a program designed to change your life in 30 days. It says that certain food groups are having a negative impact on our health and fitness without us even realizing it. Mainly everything that is processed and not natural does not fit in your meals for 30 days. You can then judge how to balance your meals later on and which lifestyle to choose.
The rules are simple. You say yes to REAL food and no to anything processed, grains, legumes (beans, lentils, etc), dairy and anything which contains more than the actual food as ingredients. You can read more about the rules here.
It’s about making good food choices, no cheats, no special occasion, for 30 days! For those of you who know me, you know how hard this is going to be. I won’t stop posting recipes for everybody (we’ll be making them but I won’t be eating them for 30 days), but I will also be sharing my whole 30 meals every day. Make sure you follow me on Instagram (@breadonbutter_) to get every detail of what I’m having during the day and wish me good luck 🙂
I woke up today and had a banana with a black coffee. Here is today’s lunch recipe to inspire you to have real and delicious food. It’s not that hard, it just needs planning.
Baked Salmon and asparagus – Whole 30 Challenge Day 1
What you’ll need (for 1 person):
- 100 g salmon filet
- A bunch of fresh local asparagus
- Olive oil
How to make it:
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Place a baking sheet on an oven tray. Place the salmon filet and asparagus on top, sprinkle with olive oil and salt, then bake for 15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked and the asparagus are roasted.
You can add a side of brown rice or a baked potato.
It was full of flavors and it left me satisfied! Now off to plan dinner 🙂
I will be posting a weekly update every Monday and sharing recipes every other day, so stay tuned!
