Whole30 Days 8-11

Things are moving along smoothly. No major cravings and I've lost more weight. Hurray! 

There are a bajillion (sp?) Whole 30 blogs out there, but I came across one I liked and thought I would share it. It's purely a daily Whole 30 log, nothing more. Very cut and dry, with some recipes, tips, and general updates. You can find it here at Russ and Amy's Whole 30 Journey.

I followed one of Amy's tips and decided to try an egg casserole as a quick, microwave-able breakfast. Turns out I ate the last piece before I could take a picture. Guess I'll have to make another ;) 

This is a base recipe you can really play with, which happens to be perfect for Whole 30 because you don't have to worry about eating the same thing every morning. Switch it up a few times during the month! 

1 dozen eggs
Seasoned meat (ex. turkey sausage (mild or hot), taco seasoned ground beef, turkey, or chicken)
two big handfulls of spinach
other goodies of your choice: chopped bell peppers, hot peppers, mushrooms, onions, sweet potato...

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease an 8x8 baking dish with something Whole 30 approved, like coconut oil. (This would work equally well in a 9x9 pan.)
Cook the meat on the stove, then add spinach. Mix it a bit and let it get wilty. 
Pour meat and spinach mixture into baking dish.
In a bowl, scramble a dozen eggs. 
Pour eggs over meat and spinach in baking dish. 

Bake for 35 minutes. Check center for doneness. You shouldn't have any egg whites glopping about.

Take it out. Let it sit a few while you get your fork out. Enjoy!
