Fried Bratwurst, Eggs with Potato Brussel Sprout Hash Whole30 Lunch

Sounds delicious, right? You bet your damn britches it is! Just made this bad boy for lunch and what a joy. It was actually enough for my next meal too, to those who are doing the Whole30 diet.

For those that are looking to get on the Whole30 diet, I would definitely recommend going to Whole30.com where you can see the rules and regulations to make it a success. Meal planning and food prep is a big part of the plan so make sure you have done a good week or so worth of food shopping to make it happen.

Here are some shots of my ingredients for lunch below:

To start, defrost the Bratwurst Chicken Sausages under the faucet if frozen and you are hungry.  If you have some time and are ready to wait around for an hour or so to defrost be my guest.  In a pan on the oven, if you have bacon fat lying around light that up and throw in the eggs and defrosted Bratwurst links.  I then added chopped potatoes and the brussel sprouts whole.  Post cooking you can chop everything up into a hash mix or just eat as is.  Plated version below along with the pan version so you can follow along.

Not sure about you, but I love how the eggs crisp at the bottom!  It is so yummy!  I then sprinkled everything with a little bit of Himalayan salt and the end to give it a little more of a flavor kick.  Great part about this meal is that I made enough to last me through tonight!

Happy eating!

Whole30 Lunch – Homemade Baked Potato Chips with Boiled Eggs and Tessamae Ranch Dressing

2018!  I am on Round 2, Day 2 of my Whole30 diet.  First round last year I lost 13 pounds, and looking to lose 10 more this time around.  I have to admit I gained 3 pounds or so since my last round.  I haven’t had raw sugar however I did have non-compliant meat and dairy products sparingly.  I think this had to do with the weight gain.  Also it is that time of the month as a woman, so typically I gain at least 5 pounds of water weight.  Crazy I know, but I am hoping this was the reason for the weight gain too.

Day 2 of the Whole30 and the menu I have had thus far consists of Kale Chips that I baked in the oven at 425 degrees fahrenheit, and actually only drizzled some olive oil on top with Himalayan salt and pepper.  I didn’t have a full breakfast this time around so by lunch I was ready to feast!

For lunch, I am doing hard boiled eggs and potato chips.  To make the potato chips, I sliced white potatoes thin, all the same size.  I drizzled them with olive oil, garlic powder, paprika and black pepper, saving the Himalayan salt for last.

Once I put them in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes I worked on the hard boiled eggs.  I put them in cold water on the oven, and made 4 but only was able to eat three.  I kept them on the stove for 10 minutes boiling and then turned the heat on low to have it simmer there for another 5 minutes.  The inside of the yolk was still not all the way cooked, but I like it like that.

I added my favorite dressing that is Whole30 compliant, which is called Tessamae’s Ranch Dressing.  It is Whole30 approved on there website here: www.whole30.com, and they have others too like Caesar, Hot Sauce, Ketchup and more.  I found this in the vegetable section of my grocery store Ralph’s, but you could find it in the salad dressing aisle too.

I have to say it was so delicious, and even my picky eater of a toddler loved it too!  Obviously they are not officially on the diet, but here and there they get adventurous and try new foods which is amazing.

Enjoy your lunch, and hope you try it! 🙂
