A friend of mine at work recently did her first Whole 30. I remember talking about the plan and the things she was giving up for 30 days. The one thing I couldn’t imagine ever giving up was cheese. I love the stuff. Well, I thought I did. It’s been 20 days without cheese and I really do not crave it or miss it.
Before Whole 30, I would eat cheese on sandwiches, salads, toppings for tacos/burritos, cream cheese for soups, Laughing Cow with veggies, cheese fruit and wine tasting plates, cheese sticks with apples, and the list goes on.
I don’t CRAVE cheese like I might crave sugar. I fully intend to add it back in slowly to see if dairy is causing any inflammation issues, but so far, I do not really miss it.
Tonight for dinner, I wanted to make burrito bowls. I first encountered these on my first visit to Chipotle last summer. After finding out about my intolerance to gluten, I started making burrito bowls at home, sans tortillas. This time around, I made them the Whole 30 way. No beans, rice or cheese. I used broccoli slaw instead.
And before anybody complains, it was really good! Will I eat them like this forever? probably not. Will I pile on rice, beans, and cheese after the Whole 30? Probably not.
This is broccoli slaw. It is just a bag of shredded broccoli stems, carrots, and purple cabbage. I use it stir fries, too. It packs a powerful nutrition punch in place of plain cabbage or lettuce.

I hope this feeling lasts. It’s been a tough week with stress, sneaky sinus issues, but I’m still enjoying the benefits from the drastic diet change. I’m slowly just base building keeping my weekly totals between 15-20.

I just made this recipe. I bought everything for it and then couldn't access the recipe. When I got ready to make it, the recipe was back. I was so glad. I used 8 oz. of organic grass-fed beef. We like less meat. I used an Anaheim chili. I don't eat anything from a can and used a jalapeno and squeezed a big lime in the recipe. I also added some cooked organic brown rice that I had leftover. We didn't add tomatoes, but used salsa. It was good. Loved the spices and all the veggies!!! Thank you for sharing!!

[…] I planned on that first week turned out well. The only one I’d definitely make again is the Burrito Bowls, since a good Butternut Squash soup really does need cream. Sorry guys, I just can’t get […]

This is a great Whole30 dinner recipe. I put a layer of cauli rice in the bowl first, then the recipe as written. Extra veggies and it feels like you're eating a burrito bowl with rice!
