Chili-Lime Shrimp Skewers

I unfortunately live in an apartment where grills are not allowed on individual patios and balcony’s. Luckily, this summer, they opened a new pool with built in grills for the residents to use. It has been the best addition for me so far! I have used it at least once a week.

Nothing says summer more than being able to get out and grill some yummy food. I can literally throw everything on the grill from meat to vegetables to potatoes and have minimal clean up in my own kitchen! Not to mention its super quick and makes it just that much more delicious. Before this summer, I never used a grill and at the start of summer I would just prepare everything and have my boyfriend grill it for me. But I am growing in my grilling independence and am learning how to do it. I must say, the chili lime shrimp skewers turned out amazing and they did not last very long in the house! 

This paired perfectly with my summer like creamy avocado coleslaw and flavorful mango salsa.  Although the shrimp could totally be eatin by itself, Who doesn’t like a good dip right? And avocado dip is a must try!

Guacamole

Guacamole has been one of my favorite things to make lately. The favorite part of my food freedom has been pairing the guacamole with some siete grain free tortilla chips, lime flavor! It has to be lime flavor! Otherwise, the guacamole goes perfectly on grilled chicken, shrimp, sweet potato fries , and with veggies for dipping.

Whole 30 BBQ Meatballs

I am so thankful that I stumbled upon the wonderful, Tessamae’s dressings, in the grocery story. My favorite store at that, Fresh Thyme, where I find most of the latest and greatest whole 30/paleo food items that are perfect for my diet.

Tessamae’s has a BBQ sauce that is 100% whole 30 approved and sooo sooo tasty! I am a person that loves BBQ sauce and having it especially on my chicken or beef. Finding this sauce was a lifesaver.

I have loved making meatballs and tossing them in the sauce and sometimes adding a whole 30 approved hot sauce to add a little kick, making it a delicious spicy BBQ sauce.

This recipe is everything a person could want. Simple, easy, whole 30 approved, paleo approved, gluten free, grain free and delicious!

My Must Have Whole 30 Items

Here I am sharing a few of my whole 30 survival mode must haves! Me not finishing Whole 30 was not an option, so I had to find some of my favorite products that kept me on track, helped me make delicious food, and delicious snacks for when I was in a pinch during my long 12 hour extremely busy night shifts!

1. RX Bars- These are so perfect and convenient for when you’re in a pinch! RX bars are super clean, and don’t use sugar to sweeten the bars. So double win!

2. Rao’s pasta sauce- Of course pasta isn’t whole 30 compliant, but having pasta sauce to add to dishes packs on so much flavor nd makes your pasta noodle free dishes delicious! My favorite way to use Rao’s pasta sauce was over top baked or grilled chicken.

3. Coconut Aminos- Coconut aminos is used as a replacement of soy sauce. So if you find yourself out at a sushi bar ordering some whole 30 compliant sauce, pack up some coconut aminos. Fun fact: They also have to go packs.

4. Tessemae’s dressings and sauces-Most of the line of sauces are whole 30 compliant. Be sure to check the label before using if you are on a round. This is also perfect for salads. I especially love the BBQ sauce where i’ve made BBQ meatballs or topped the BBQ sauce on a bunless burger!

5. Primal Kitchen Avocado Mayo- This was an absolute must have for my tuna salad or for the base of making sauces for my chicken and fish dishes.

6. Bubly Sparkling Water-Strawberry is my favorite flavor from this brand and it was a life saver since technically most tasty beverages are full of sugar. Natural fruit flavors are allowed with Whole 30 and therefore, was constantly stocked in my fridge!

7. Nutpods- Most people tend to stop drinking coffee once on a round because of their love for the cream and sugar that they add typically. For me, I have learned to either drink it black, add almond milk, or add some flavorful nutpods creamer. I typically add just a dash because the coconut milk is so sweet it doesn’t need much more than that!

Egg Roll in a Bowl

Keeping Whole 30 can be sooooooo hard. Getting creative was the key for me succeeding and completing my whole 30 round. It’s way too easy to have a meal with a meat, a veggie, and a fat but woah, so boring. I tend to find ideas by simply googling something I am thinking about making, find a recipe, and tweek it to fit whole 30 or to fit my personal taste buds. Anyone can do this!

First thing is to gather all whole 30 approved ingredients. YES bean sprouts are whole 30 compliant and thankfully because I do not feel any Asian dish deserves to be without bean sprouts. You cant deny the added crunchy texture that it adds, especially if you are doing no gluten or grains.

I made a sauce as a finisher but it was not totally necessary and can be eaten as is or even top with more coconut aminos! I made the sauce by mixing avocado mayo, red hot, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, and garlic.

Although a several steps involved, still not difficult to make at all and it was so tasty, I’d recommend this to anyone to try! Hope you enjoy this Whole 30 compliant Asian dish as much as I did!
