WIAW: Whole 30 & healthy edition!

Happy Wednesday! As usual this means it's time for another day of noms and food around here! You get to have a look into what's brewing in my kitchen on any typical day, usually a Monday. 

For the first time in a while, I am finally excited about being in the kitchen again. Planning my son's birthday party, planning our trip to the market for necessary supplies, and watching cooking shows [of the Jamie Oliver and Australian Masterchef variety] have finally given me a bit of inspiration. 

I should have some awesome, paleo recipes in the making shortly, but I might have to post a few birthday recipes, like say my gooey double chocolate cookies or some white chocolate and raspberry cupcakes. Guess what those aren't! They are so not paleo, but I don't think my Dutch guests would appreciate it if I take away the typical rice or macaroni dishes they are accustomed to eating at birthday parties. 

Anyhow, enough chatting about birthdays! Here's what my family ate on Monday: 


This is pretty much my go to breakfast, snack, or basically something I make whenever I'm feeling like a quick breakfast: My basic smoothie! I think I had this everyday for two weeks now. My son loves them as much as I do, so I'm definitely going to continue making these for a while.

An easy tuna salad! Psst! Be sure to get my easy tuna salad recipe - it's delicious and my kid actually loves it!

Borsch or Russian beet soup.

Yep, more beets. My What I Ate Wednesday posts seem to be a bit repetitive, but we just have so many beets in the garden - gigantic, mammoth ones that are literally the size of my head.  They need to be consumed and given that everyone in the home [with the exception of the Toddler] is crazy about beets, we're all fine with eating them nearly everyday. Spinach on the other hand, I most definitely do not mind consuming each day.  


The usual handfuls of nuts, several apples, a hard boiled egg or two, and these glazed carrots:
