Whole30 day 4

Almost weekend.. That's what I've been telling myself today.
Not that things at work are so bad (guess what, work is much more fun when you have energy!) I'm simply looking forward to my weekend. I won't be at home, but I'm sure I'll be able to confiscate a laptop for a short while to blog about my meals.

Over the next 2 weekends, I'll be cooking for some people, and I also want to make them some sort of dessert. So, there are 2 options: I make dessert and don't have any myself, or I create a more or less Whole30 approved dessert (in other words: fruit sweetened) so I can have some too. (guess what, the last option is my favourite) I'd love to make some ice-cream, but my ice-cream maker sucks and refuses to process anything with coconut milk, so that's not an option.

I browsed my recipes and found a few options:

Chocolate avocado pudding
Pumpkin Pie (which I would top with some pecans)
Strawberry banana cheesecake (can probably be made with other fruit than strawberries as well)
Morning Glory Muffins from Paleo Comfort Foods
Peach Crisp from Elana's Pantry (without the agave)

Now, one of my weakest points is choosing. Especially when it comes to food. I simply like all of it. So I ask you for advice!
What to make for dessert??
Or does anyone have any other recipe options that will blow me away and will make choosing much easier all of a sudden? I would definitely appreciate suggestions!
Please leave me a comment :-)

Here's what I ate today:
Breakfast: fritatta with chicken, spring onions and chives, and oven roasted Brussels sprouts.

Lunch: Spinach salad with carrot, raw broccoli stems and grilled salmon.

Dinner: beef stew with slightly charred cauliflower, which I seasoned with some garam masala.

  1. I vote for the pumpkin pie! The weather is getting cooler, pumpkins are getting ripe, and who doesn't like pie???? Chopped/pureed dates can lend sweetness to the filling, and those pecans you mentioned will impress your guests. Have a great weekend!
