Protein Gelatin by Me!

The original version is peach, but I have since made many variations. My current favorite is 2 bags of peaches, 1 bag of strawberries, and 1 bag of pineapple. I eat this for my post workout meal every single weekday, as it is portable and can be consumed in the car on my way to work. I can also make enough for 2 weeks at a time and freeze the second week. It thaws wonderfully. I love mixing in 1/2 a scoop of Naturade vanilla protein powder and a couple TBSP of PB2. It is like PB&J!!

My favorite way to prep these for the week is to measure out all the dry ingredients in advance into Tupperware, then add the wet the night before. That way you can do the majority of the prep work up front, but they are still fresh!

Baked Buffalo Chicken Casserole by Sarah Kesseli

This recipe is great on its own and crumbled over a salad (see below). It is so versatile. Swap out the pulled chicken for ground beef, turkey, or chicken. You can also swap out the veggies to use up what you might have on hand. A lot of times I used a bag of Green Giant riced veggies or butternut noodles. It is also a great way to use up leftover spinach.

Filipino Chicken Adobo by Paleo Foodie Kitchen

For some reason I can’t get the site to load on a consistent basis. If you have trouble with the site link, see below. You basically just mix up the sauce and cook the chicken (see the video below 😍) on the stove with the sauce (remove the bay leaves before serving of course). It is so easy and You can also add the sauce to any kind of roast in the crockpot (as pictured below) and cook it until it falls apart.

Instructions from Whole30 Facebook page:

  • “Combine all the ingredients except avocado oil in a large pot and place on the stove over medium-high heat.
  • Once it starts to boil, cover the pot and reduce heat to medium-low. Let it simmer for 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove the bay leaves and transfer cooked chicken and the sauce in a large bowl.
  • Using the same pot, increase the heat to medium-high and add avocado oil.
  • Pan fry the chicken pieces (minus the sauce) in 2-3 batches until the outside is golden brown.
  • Once all the chicken pieces are browned, pour the sauce into the pot and let it simmer for a few more minutes until slightly thicken.
    Serve with lots of cauliflower rice and a fried egg on top!”

Another favorite from Dashing Dish! I usually add apple and Gouda chicken sausage instead of the chicken breast for my protein with it. You can also add more veggies like spinach, zucchini, squash, etc. for more volume and micronutrients.
