Day 14

It's football day! In addition to meal planning and food prep day, its also the AFC Championship game between the Broncos and the Patriots. J and I are headed over to his parents to want the game so we're doing a trial run of some compliant football food so we will have a plan for the Superbowl party in a few weeks. We ended up making some wings, baked in the over and then covered in Tessemae's Buffalo sauce and some Frank's hot sauce. They were really damn good. You don't need to butter at all that most place add to the buffalo sauce. Then we made some "fachos" with plantain chips (my new obsession!) and some of the leftover mexican layered casserole from last week. We separated out the ground beef from the casserole and warmed that up to put over the plantain chips. Then topped it with the lettuce, tomato, black olive mixture and added some salsa and it made some pretty darn good faux nachos! It was not a normal Whole30 eating day in that we didn't really have 3 distinct meals. We much all afternoon/early evening on plantain chips and salsa, veggies and some cantelope. But all in all, it was a pretty healthy day considering what football-watching food normally consists of.

Needless to say we weren't really hungry for dinner so we just had a few light items to tide us over until morning. I made some lemon coconut energy bits from a recipe I saw on pinterest. They turned out pretty good but the lemon flavor wasn't as strong as I hoped. They tasted just like a larabar and are made with dates, cashews, almonds, chia seeds, coconut and lemons!

We did some meal prep tonight to make the week a little easier. In addition to my lemon balls, I also made the applesauce for our pork chops, J made a week's worth of breakfasts and I made 3 breakfasts. I also made some tuna salad to have for a few lunches this week.
