Whole 30 WIAW #2: Spinach overload a berry smoothie recipe!

Today, I'm sharing a look into my whole 30 meals on Monday! I'm keeping this post short and sweet. Tomorrow, as promised, you'll get a longer update on what I'm eating, how I'm doing it, maybe a recipe, or a few resources! Be sure to stop by to check that out! For now, here are some paleo noms:

Breakfast 


Smoothie time!

I made this after the Toddler had actually already had his breakfast (oatmeal with berries. A gigantic portion of it), but this still happened:

You see that bowl? He got it himself and sneakily (okay not sneakily) came over and started snatching and munching! And after I replaced the banana, he still drank an entire cup full! I also had a big glass full - so tasty!

Lunch


Awesome vegetable loaded omelet. This was supposed to be my zucchini frittata but it turned into an omelet. It was still paleo though, just prepared differently and super tasty.

Dinner


Bacon meatballs/burgers on a spinach and tomato salad. I always call things like this meatballs, but the shape isn't a ball. It has to do with the translation from Russian... I think. The way I prepared these was always the way my mum made meatballs, but I added bacon and made it paleo. Regardless of what to call them, these patties/not so bally meat things were delicious! And the spinach rocked my socks.

We had beets on the side, but this photo is of the leftovers I had for lunch on Tuesday with yet more spinach and arugula. We were all too hungry to wait for another round of photos.

Snacks and drinks

Coffee (black or with almond milk), tea, lots and lots and lots of water
Nuts, apples, grapes, red currants and black berries from the gigantic bush

And now one of my favourite recipes - this is the base for any smoothie I make! I love how easy smoothies are and how delicious they can be.

Basic Smoothie Recipe


  • Get out your blend and add: 
  • 1 cup cold water (if you want a thicker consistency, add less water. You can also add coconut or almond milk instead)
  • 2 ripe bananas 
  • 1 cup berries (I used frozen blueberries)
  • 2 cups raw spinach
  • Optional: 6 tablespoons chia seeds
  • Optional: 1/2 cup ice

Blend and enjoy! I swap out the type of berries or alternative fruit I use, but this the idea. It's one of my favourite breakfasts and it's really quick to make! The absolute bonus is that my toddler actually consumes spinach like this!
