Healthista Whole30 Week Three: Recipes + Grocery List
Posted Sep 22 2012 2:58pm
Congrats! You’re just about halfway through the Healthista Whole30. I hope you’re hanging in there. I’ve had a couple snafus (finding out something had sugar in it after the fact, for one), but otherwise am having an awesome Whole30 experience.
For those of you who’ve asked about if you can still join the Healthista Whole30 even if you didn’t start on Sept. 10, the answer is OF COURSE! Start whenever works for you, just make sure you get 30 days in. And these should help you out:
Sweet Potato and Sausage Breakfast Pie. The recipe will be posted on Monday, but the ingredients are on the grocery list below.
Unsweetened applesauce swirled with almond butter or whole almonds. Have a hard-boiled egg on the side for extra protein if desired.
Crock-Pot Curry with Cabbage . I always forget about cabbage, but it’s a nice fall/winter veggie! This recipe is flexible in terms of protein and type of curry (I used beef and green curry), so feel free to experiment!
Fish + veggies: your choice! Similar to last week, pick any kind of fish that appeals to you or is affordable (shoot for wild-caught if possible), and pick your favorite veggie to eat on the side. I’m going with halibut and kale. I’ll probably make kale chips (no cheese) and just saute the halibut with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Snacks (if necessary)
Your favorite olives+ raw veggies
“Baked” apples with almond butter: cut an apple into bite-sized pieces, drizzle with almond butter if desired, and add cinnamon. Microwave for 1:30-2:00.
Week Three Grocery List (doesn’t include necessary dry spices, so check the recipes to make sure you have all that’s required!)

1 green peppers
