winter kale soup

Winter Kale Soup

There’s something about eating healthy, losing weight, and resolves coming right during the middle of winter. If most of us are honest we couldn’t be further from thinking about our beach body or getting up early to work out when it’s still dark. While we love salads with the best of them, there’s something about eating cold food during winter that loses its appeal. Smoothies when it’s 20 degrees outside is a hard sell. Maybe you’re like me and are thinking the same thing. In light of this, we came up with this delicious kale soup recipe. Warm, comforting, and with a few tweaks, it’s whole30 compliant. This soup can be dinner tonight.

When it comes to eating cleanly, I can handle living without sugar. My true challenges are letting go of carbs and cheese. We’re known for living off of antipasto around our house and it’s a guarantee that a charcuterie will be served at any given party.

This recipe is a lighten up version of an Italian classic, Eggplant Parmesan. By removing a few of the breaded coatings and subtracting the cheese, this recipe is the perfect weeknight dinner and can be made quickly over the stovetop.

A recipe filled with layers of flavor, made in 30 minutes, fresh herbs, and Whole30 approved.

When it comes to the Whole30 and trying to eat as cleanly as possible, I have one major stumbling block. I’m a sucker for dessert and lattes. Last month, we were sticking to the Whole30 in our house and discovered these amazing products. While not all of them are Whole30 approved, many are and all are clean eating friendly.

just 3 strawberry basil sorbet

3 Ingredient Strawberry Basil Sorbet

As we’ve been sticking to all things clean and whole in our house, I must share with you the greatest temptation. Snacking and desserts. These two food categories could throw me off quicker than anything else. This recipe is legit, takes 3 ingredients, and doesn’t involve an ice cream maker. It makes it a winner for us. The sweetness of the sorbet comes through naturally through the strawberries. The citric acid from the lemon elevates the melded flavors of the basil and strawberries without being overly tart. (Also, it’s Whole30 approved which is a big win in our house.)
