I am sick of eggs. So sick of them. It is day 9 of my Whole 30 plan, and I have had eggs for breakfast every day. It has gotten so that I am almost sick of food altogether- okay, so that is a little dramatic, but I am very interested in switching things up in order to eat without getting ill from the sight of eggs!
Today, I made the chili from the Whole 30 book:
And to be honest, once you accept that it is not the chili that you are used to, and that you are enjoying chili-soup, you will find this delicious. Also, there is something about soup that both fills me up and also makes me feel very satisfied, like a comfort food usually does. I will have to remember this, and make a big pot of soup to eat throughout the week. I will have to post one later in the week that is totally Whole 30 adaptable and I could eat it for breakfast…no eggs! This could be a game changer my friends. Soup for breakfast is a stand-by for my sister in law, and I think she may be on to something…
For now, I made a new recipe to switch gears from meat, meat, meat. That is the other main protein source other than eggs, that I have had just about enough of. So I whipped up a couple of salmon-cakes from what I had on hand, and what is Whole 30 approved. I looked online for recipes, and they all include eggs and almond flour. I am too lazy to grind almonds, since I have no almond flour, and it is also really expensive- I’d rather save my almonds for chewing them :). And the eggs…well. Let’s leave them out.
My mixture came together really well, and formed two perfect patties that held together surprisingly well. For not too much money or effort, I made a great lunch:
The chili as I said is in the Whole 30 book. The Salmon Cakes, which are paleo too are my own original recipe, and one I will definitely be eating a lot of this month! Here it is:
I do hope you try this, because it was really good~ I know it seems like a lot of ingredients, but they are inexpensive and often used ingredients that we always have on hand…and no eggs!
