Whole30 Week 3

I've gotten a little behind on my updates so I'm going to sum up Week 3 in one post, don't worry, it wasn't very eventful ;) 

I have a quick recipe to share, so scroll on down for that if that's what you're interested in! 

Week 3 is known for being a little rough in the digestive department. A lot of the nasty bacteria that has been living in your gut for who knows how long is now taking it's grand exit, only it's not so grand. Aside from a little constipation followed by a couple days of diarrhea it wasn't horrible. 

Everyone is different though so be prepared! 

The other side effect I felt during Week 3 was moodiness. I was super short tempered with the kids and a lot more impatient than normal. This probably lasted the 3 days right in the middle of Week 3, but by the last few days of the week it had passed. 

Breakfast was getting a little old for me, so I decided to try something new. Here's a quick and easy recipe for any time of the day. The best part is my 3 year old thought these were pretty great too!

Cinnamon Carrot Sticks in Coconut Oil

carrots, coconut oil, recipe, cinnamon, whole30, breakfast

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Peel and slice whole carrots (baby carrots are easier but I found they weren't as sweet).
Cover a baking pan (cake pan works fine too) with foil, drizzle coconut oil over the foil. 
Toss the carrots around in the oil with a spatula until covered. 
Sprinkle carrots with cinnamon.
Bake at 375 for 15 minutes, toss, then bake for another 15 minutes. 

They get all caramelized and yummy. 

Next time I'm trying them with a little cayenne to go with the cinnamon. I love sweet and spicy! Mmmmmmm.
