Another Whole30 has come and gone. This time around, to be honest, was not as successful as the first. I let it go a few days ago, before the 30 days were up. Too much running around with my Nana’s passing and all of the arrangements, etc. Besides, she would have been upset if I didn’t have some wine in her honor 😉
I’m going to do my best to maintain a Paleo-ish lifestyle. I know my body doesn’t respond well to carbs so I really need to make it a point to cut them out as much as possible. I’ve found so many great recipes that are compliant, including this one. Even though I don’t have an issue with dairy, this is a nice recipe for those who do.
This was a breeze to make, and reheats very well. Sprinkle some pumpkin seeds on top and you’ve got a great meal or appetizer. Delicious!
