|Almond-crusted chicken, salad, roasted veggies|
The almond-crusted chicken tenders recipe is here (thanks for the recommendation, Cristin!) I added some more salt, pepper, and Italian herbs into the almond meal. I sliced my chicken breasts fairly thin, so I should have lowered the cooking time. Otherwise, it's really tasty! I ended up cutting the chicken and tossed it in my salad, and the flavors of avocado, the dressing, and crunchy almond chicken was great.
This dressing is deliiiicious. I wish I had doubled it!
Sweet Ginger-Dijon Dressing (from whole30 instagram)
- 1/2 c olive oil
- 4 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
- 2 tbsp compliant dijon mustard
- 3 medjool dates, pitted
- pinch salt & pepper
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse until smooth.
Now that I'm near the end, the question is, how do I transition? I don't want to spend this entire month in waste by gaining weight back or slipping into bad old habits. Something to think about, and research!
