Day 5, 2016

Still not much of an appetite. And still tired. All part of the adjustment to eating only Whole 30.

Fried Eggs, Bacon, OJ
Leftovers! Steak and Cabbage and more OJ
I also added a banana for filling the stomach.

Asian Chicken Legs, Stir Fry Veggies

 Recipe for the Chicken is found here
I did make it Whole30 friendly by using coconut aminos and by skipping the honey. Instead of rice vinegar I added about 2 tblsp of white vinegar to give the sauce its edge. I cooked the chicken on the stove top, adding some chicken broth for simmering purposes. 
It was good, but it missed the balance that honey adds to the dish. I would use chicken breast next time. There was way too much sauce; I would make only half a recipe.

For the veggies, I heated coconut oil on med hi, added cauliflower and cooked 4 minutes. Then added shredded cabbage, cooked another 3 minutes. Then threw in a bag of broccoli slaw and chopped garlic. (I had to add more coconut oil as the skillet was rather dry). At the end I added 2 tblsp of coconut aminos. 
My family and I really liked the addition of the broccoli slaw to a stir fry!
