This 'Orange Chicken Stir-fry was one of the first recipes I ever posted on my blog a couple years back and tonight is the night that it is coming out of the ol' blog vault.
If you have all the ingredients you should make it with me and then tag me so that I can see the deliciousness that you stuffed into your pie hole. If you don't have the ingredients, go pick some up,and make it later this week!
Link in profile for the recipe!

This 'Cuban Ropa Vieja' will be up on the blog this week and it's a MUST make. I used the instant pot, so basically everything goes in and then comes out ready to party. In your mouth.
Also, its #whole30tothemax so there's that!! ________________________________
Also #whole30 week 1 done. How is everyone who started (or who are in the middle) with me feeling? I was a bit ravenous the other day, but kept it together! •

When I'm doing a @whole30 (and even after), one of my favorite things to do is stuff *stuff* into bell peppers. The sides of the bell pepper keep everything contained which is just awesome!
Here are a few of my favorite combos!
MEXICAN SALMON (shown)
• Salmon with taco seasoning
• Pico de gallo and guacamole
• Lime and cilantro (You could also use chicken or steak instead of salmon)
BREAKFAST BELL PEPPER
• Fried or scrambled egg
• Fresh chopped spinach
• My artichoke basil pesto*
• Tomato slice
LUNCHTIME STUFFED PEPPER
• Compliant deli meat (diestel, applegate branfs)
• Yellow mustard
• Slice of avocado
• Slice of tomato
• OPTIONAL: red onion slices

This "MEXICAN CHICKEN WITH CAULI-RICE AND OKRA" is new on the blog! I'm actually making it tonight but with shrimp instead cause that's what I got. I also only have 1/2 a bag of okra so you know, I'm obviously super prepared to make this meal! #itwillstilltastegreat

Did you guys know that I'm in the @whole30 cookbook?! (The bison burger and mexican salmon cake recipe) And did you know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE (sorry to yell) it when you make my recipes from the book (and from the blog too) #heartflubberation
Seriously, my heart skips a beat and I can't thank you enough for the love and support that you guys have given. It really means the world to me. #mushypost #whole30cookbook

This chicken salad is all kinds of magical. Like unicorns frolicking in a meadow magical. It's perfect for lunches; I just change what I put it in everytime I have it so I don't get bored. (ie. Stuff it into butter lettuce <shown>, stuff it into a bell pepper, put it over mixed greens)

BACON RANCH CHICKEN SALAD

What you need:
• 1 lb chicken breast, shredded or chopped*
• 3 pieces bacon, chopped
• 1/2 red onion, chopped
• 2 celery stalks, chopped
• 1/2 cup @tessemaes creamy ranch dressing
• OPTIONAL: cherry tomatoes, diced

What to do:
• Cut up your bacon and cook it in a skillet. Once done set aside into a bowl
• In the same skillet cook up your chicken. 5-7 min each side.
• While chicken is cooking, dice up red onion and celery and place in your bowl.
• Once chicken is done chop it up and add to bowl. Mix everything together. (At this point I like to put it in the fridge to let cool completely before I add in the ranch, but this is totally optional)
• Add in your ranch and mix it all up. Will last 4-5 days in an air tight container in your fridge. I add a dolop of ranch to "freshen" it up before I go to eat it if its been in the fridge for a couple days.

This Cucumber and Prosciutto salad is the salad that has been missing in your @whole30. #forrealsies

One of my absolute favorite meals to make while on a #whole30 is my 'Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls'
It is so easy #likesoeasy and super family friendly. Also, it makes for some bomb diggity leftovers (and leftovers aren't usually my jam) •

Here's a fun little number that you can add into #whole30 meals.....The Breakfast Burger.
Its super simple....just add a veggie base (in this case this morn it was leeks, mushrooms, and onion**), make a basic burger patty, then put an egg on top. You can scramble the egg, poach it, fry it, hardboil it....whatevs! And now you got yourself a breakfast burger that you can do your morning faceplant into! **I picked up a pre-made leek saute from @safeway to make life easier for me this morning. If you find yourself not having time to slice n' dice, pre packaged, already cut veggie options are pretty sweet. This option was only $3.99 for a big package!
