Recently, Jeff and I decided to dedicate 30 days to taking care of ourselves by taking a look at what we eat every day. While there’s a million different ‘plans’ out there, we were drawn towards a simple, whole-foods approach and have been hearing a lot online and off about Whole30 lately.
If you haven’t heard of it, Whole30 is a 30 day commitment to cutting some foods out with the goal of cutting cravings, getting some energy back and figuring out which foods are big nasty monsters for you (hello, Ben & Jerry’s… how YOU doing? Oh… Coco Puffs!! What are you doing here??) So we cut dairy, grains, legumes, sugar & alcohol.
We’ve been doing lots of looking around for new recipes! Here’s something we loved – a delicious Ginger-Lime-Coconut sauce we swiped from our friend Courtney. This is meant as a sauce for roasted chicken, but we think it makes an amazing salad dressing as well!
Here’s what you need…
- 1 can coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons peeled/chopped ginger
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1 cup cilantro
- 1 cup onion
Simple, right? We have a magic bullet, so I used that to blend everything together – I had to do it in two bunches.
For the full recipe, including the roasted chicken… hop on over!
If any of you are already doing or interested in doing Whole30 with Jeff and I, shoot us an email! If enough folks are up to it, we’d love to do a Facebook group!
