Whole30 Challenge - Day 5

Oh, yay! I have got to admit. Today, I am loving life! I am at Day 5, and I am feeling terrific.

I feel like I have gotten into a bit of a groove with meal planning, figuring out how much I need to eat, and starting to make big progress with my journey!

I woke up feeling energetic, clear-headed, and...skinny. Now many people would argue that I am already skinny. Well, that may be pretty much true. However, there was just a tad bit of tummy left after having my baby 3 months ago. But, this morning I woke up and saw major muscle definition in my abs. I guess any bloating that was with me in my other diet is now gone! And I love that too!

I am feeling really optimistic today about my Whole30, and I can't wait to see the other benefits I start feeling.

For now, let me share a recipe I made for supper last night.

Turkey Apple Hash 
(you can also add roasted sweet potatoes to the hash. I made them on the side.)

1 lb. ground turkey
3 apples, chopped up
1/2 onion, chopped up
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp all spice
salt and pepper and any other seasonings you like, to taste
(optional: chopped roasted sweet potatoes)

Super easy! You just cook the turkey and onion in a skillet over medium heat. Then add the apples and spices and stir. It is heavenly, and it smells divine too! If you add a little spiciness to the dish, it is the perfect combo of sweet, salty and spicy.

Everyone in my family loved it, kids and adults alike. Try it!


  1. This hash actually does sound pretty good, especially with the sweet potatoes. This would be good whether or not you were on the Whole30 diet. Nice that your children enjoyed it too.
    I am glad today was a better day and you are feeling better.

  2. Was this all you ate for dinner, or was there a side? I like this recipe, and plan to put it in my meal plan.

    1. Yes, this is all we ate. And we ate a lot! :-) Enjoy it!

  3. Trying it for breakfast this morning!

  4. with so many food intolerances, this has been my breakfast for months. love it so much I sometimes have it for supper too. I brown the ground turkey with only salt, cook chopped apples separately until soft. I take a baked sweet potato (baked earlier as I do these 5 or 6 at a time and keep in fridge) peel it, cut it long ways and across to make small chunks. Add turkey when done, top with cooked apples and DELICIOUS, and also good for you. And no gluten, soy, sugar, dairy or high histamine food. (I can only used golden delicious apples due to histamine problem).

    1. So glad that this recipe works for you! Keep up the great habits!
