Whole30 – Day 0 – Prep Prep Prep

Made a lovely fresh walnut pesto inspired by a Paleo Walnut Pesto from PaleolithicMD (thank you Google) [links removed as site has closed].

Pesto Ingredients:

leaves from 1 bunch of fresh & fragrant basil (leave the thick main stalks out)
1/2 cup natural walnuts
3 cloves garlic
Cobram extra virgin olive oil

Whiz basil, walnuts and garlic in a food processor until they don’t seem to get any smaller. While the machine is still running, add some olive oil. Keep adding until it becomes a sauce, scrape down the sides if you need to. Put it in a jar and add a nice layer of olive oil on top.

Made a milder batch inspired by The Clothes Make The Girl‘s I Love My Nose Pesto

Pesto Ingredients:

leaves from 1 bunch of fresh & fragrant basil (leave the thick main stalks out)
1/2 cup roasted macadamia nuts (oops, no pine nuts)
1 clove garlic
Cobram extra virgin olive oil

I’ll be having the mild pesto with tomorrow’s lunch.
Cooked up some free range chicken breasts in ghee,

Oops, nearly forgot the pesto!

Packed a container of macadamias, not sure if I’ll need these, feels like plenty of food.
I’ve packed a sliced lime too, for my water during the day.

Tomorrow’s breakfast is ready too. Zoodles with chicken and I’ll add the pesto in the morning.
I’ll make a cold brew coffee overnight to have in the morning, with coconut milk.

Dinner tomorrow will probably be a beef red curry.
