You may remember my post, Sick of failed New Years resolutions? Here are 5 Do’s & Don’ts to help you be successful in 2017, where I highlighted the importance of having an accountability partner. An accountability partner is someone who has similar goals and/or someone who can keep you on track.
I am now in my third week of the Whole30, and as I wrote about on Sunday, week 2 was definitely a challenge for me in terms of motivation, energy, and will-power. Luckily, I wasn’t the only one! Several friends of mine are also mid-way through their Whole30 challenge and we were all looking for something to look forward to. Enter, whole foods potluck!!
We planned a get-together with other whole30-ers to make a delicious meal and share a few laughs! It was a great way to get over the mid-month hump and ease into week 3 together.
Here’s a few simple dishes to take to a party, get-together, or potluck (you can make these even after your Whole30 is over!);
- Fresh salad with simple homemade dressing (I like apple cider vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic powder). Not into making your own? Tessemae’s has some good options as well.
- Two-Ingredient Whipped Sweet Potatoes
Dessert: Try some seasonal citrus fruit (such as blood oranges) with blackberries and pomegranate seeds, topped with unsweetened coconut flakes. Although it is discouraged to “recreate desserts”, you could potentially whip up some coconut cream and add a dollop to your fruit 😉
Beverages: Switch it up with some of these great ideas.
