Whole 30 – Days 24 and 25

I’ve decided that my posts are ridiculously cumbersome to read. Who wants to read all that stuff. Photos. Recipes. Maybe a few notes. Let’s try that for awhile and see how it goes.

DAY 24

Meal 1 – Leftovers. Curry chicken salad, potato and sweet potato hash, avocados and raw orange bell peppers.


Meal 2 – Clean-out-the-fridge stir fry. Head of cabbage sautéed with ghee and magic mushroom powder, ground beef with onions, garlic, bell peppers, coconut aminos. Parsley.

Meal 3 – Hubs made meatloaf muffins with sliced sweet potatoes. Sorry, forgot pictures.

DAY 25

Meal 1 – Bell pepper, lettuce, strawberry, orange salad with sherry vinaigrette, guacamole, macademia nuts.

Meal 2 – Hubs made roasted chicken for lettuce wraps, along with some homemade baked potato slices or “chips” — W30 folks know that it’s all in the name. Call something a “chip” or “faux-meal” or “muffin” and all of a sudden it’s SWYPO! I was out grocery shopping and hubby forgot to take pictures.

Meal 3 – Potato and chicken pancakes-but-not-really-pancakes (because otherwise it’d be SWYPO!), salad with sherry mustard vinaigrette, homemade ketchup (WFM* – pg. 75), bacon.

Standouts and Notes:
My potato and chicken pancakes-but-not-really-pancakes were a fluke thing, since I really was just trying to get rid of leftovers, but they were so good that I will definitely be making them again. On purpose. The homemade ketchup is more of like a chipotle sauce.

Potato and Chicken Pancakes-but-not-really-pancakes

  • Left over baked potato (I had 3 Russet potatoes)
  • Left over roasted chicken (I had two breasts)
  • Ghee (as needed for pan frying)
  • Arrowroot powder (about 1/4 cup)
  • Spices — A basic version would be S&P, add whatever spices you like though! I threw some magic mushroom powder in there and finished it with Borsari.


  • Mix potato and chicken in food processor until you have a thick pasty consistency, like gummy mashed potatoes. Add seasoning.
  • Use a ice cream scoop to easily scoop mixture and drop it into a bowl of arrowroot powder. Coat your fingers in arrowroot powder, then pat down on the ball to make it into a patty. My mixture made me a total of 16 patties total.
  • In the meantime, preheat a pan with ghee on medium-high heat.
  • Drop 2 to 3 patties in the pan. Do not touch or flip them until you can see the edges turn golden brown. About 2 minutes.
  • Flip and let them crisp another 2-3 minutes. Add more ghee if your pan starts to get too dry.
  • Remove and place on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
  • Enjoy with some homemade ketchup.

  1. The menus have been truly interesting, combinations I have not thought of. Congratulations on keeping up the challenge even with sick kiddos and probably Mommy.
