Whole30: Day 4

Not a very interesting food day as it was mostly leftovers, but it wasn’t a hard day, either.  Breakfast was a repeat of yesterday–I reheated some of the leftover Crispy Noodle Pancake in a skillet and had that with eggs over easy and some sliced avocado.  I added in a small apple and had the usual green tea.

Lunch was leftover cottage pie, green tea, and a couple of figs.  I had tons of work to do today so I didn’t really have time for much kitchen creativity.  Probably due to all of the work I was facing, I found that today I was really craving my beloved cheese–psychologically, a bunch of work always seems to make me want to snack.  At least the ibuprofen cravings are gone for now.  I followed up lunch with a shot of ginger-beet kombucha.

It was really warm today so we ended up having dinner on the deck.  I made a big salad with a fresh mango dressing (recipe below): butter lettuce, avocado, cucumber, tomato, and some chopped macadamias.

With the salad we had grilled bratwurst from U.S. Wellness Meats (so. good.) along with some spicy mustard sauce that I made with my homemade mayo as the base.  A side of sweet potato hash browns rounded it out.  Delicious and easy for a busy day.

Here’s the recipe for the dressing:

    I love that mango dressing. So easy. Used it on salad and tonight I drizzled it on my sautéed eggplant. It makes a ton! Lovely color too.

      Oh, that sounds good! I would never have thought of it on the eggplant. I love the color, too.
