Whole 30 - Day 9
I went to the market and got.. A whole lot of veggies! Being prepared for the week is key here. Afterwards I went to the supermarket and stocked up on beef, chicken, eggs, some spices and more.
So, in case you are wondering. What veggies are in the picture; what will I be eating this week?
Beets, broccoli, butternut squash, cabbage, kohlrabi, zucchini, cauliflower, carrots, avocados, limes, lemon, cilantro, coconut, tomatoes, turnips and celery root + leaves.
This time they had left the kohlrabi leaves on, finally, as you can easily add those to any meal you want. I think I'm going to stir-fry them, or add them to a fritatta or scramble. I'm not sure yet..
My parents came over this afternoon and we had a great time. I had baked them both a huge cookie and I didn't even crave for it, which felt pretty good! I didn't have a clue if the cookies tasted good, as I didn't try any, but my parents gladly tested and loved them. So that's why I'll post the recipe soon, so anyone else can try them too.
They brought me a beautiful top from Rome and they showed me their pictures, it really is a wonderful city. I don't think I'd like to go there though, there are a little too much cultural sights to my taste. I'd rather see a nice waterfall or forest or something like that.
Anyhow, despite the amount of veggies I bought, I still had a lot of leftovers as meals today. (I had to, because I didn't have enough room in my fridge for the fresh produce)
Because my parents stayed over for dinner, I made a beef stew with some stir-fried zucchini. I like making my meals look good, especially when I've got guests, but I failed horribly for dinner.. Too bad. Luckily it tasted good, because that's the main point.
