So my husband is doing a Whole30, which is awesome. He asked me if I wanted to do it with him, but yeah ... I don't. Because one of my most favorite things in life is my morning coffee with heavy cream and maple syrup. Two strikes before the day has really even started! But I'm more than happy to cook Whole30 meals and reap some not too shabby health benefits at the same time.
Things that make me happy during Whole30 season include potatoes, sausage, and meals that only require one pan. Because if you've ever done a Whole30, you know that you spend most of your time prepping food and washing a crazy amount of dishes. And unless it's a special occasion or holiday, I really don't do fancy meals that contain a zillion ingredients and require a hundred steps. Because this is real life, not a Pinterest board.
I've seen dozens of variations of one pan meals incorporating sausage and potatoes. So I just used what I had on hand and BAM -- easy, flavorful, satisfying, and minimal clean up. I think the apple gives a nice hint of sweetness to this dish. And I live with three boys, so any variation of sausage and potatoes is a winner.
We serve this over fresh spinach to check off the green and raw requirements, and Travis and John always go for the fried egg on top. And this makes for a nice bit of leftovers, which is also a Whole30 requirement in my book. Again, real life.
I’m a Pilates & Barre Master Trainer, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Executive Director with Beautycounter, recently retired military wife, and mother of two very energetic boys.
I’ve given up the unrealistic notion of being awesome at everything and embraced the idea of just keeping the important stuff well balanced.
My life is not nearly as cool as my Pinterest boards, you guys. But I do try to live a healthy life and make better choices for my family. If you have any interest in doing the same, please stick around!
