My longtime clients in Highland Park have used me as their personal chef for many years! They are currently on the Whole30 plan. In a nutshell, that means they are eating lots of meat, vegetables, fruit. Similar to a Paleo diet, the Whole30 plan includes no sugar, no legumes, no processed ingredients, no dairy. On this week’s menu was Balsamic Glazed Vegetables, Walnut Crusted Pork Tenderloin (tip: Walnuts do not stick to pork without something to hold the there. A sugar-free chutney would be perfect here.) I also made Banger Sausage Patties with Sweet Potato Mash and Caramelized Onions (Delicious! One note: caramelized onions take a long time. Not 15 minutes! They have to be cooked very slowly, on low heat until they are caramelized, which can take 45 minutes or an hour and half or so.) Watermelon Salad, Whole30 Sloppy Joe Bowls, Chia Pudding, Cilantro Lime Chicken, Shepherd’s Pie, Chimichurri Beef Kabobs were also on the menu! I also stocked their refrigerator with Whole30 compliant snacks, such as Deviled Eggs, Shrimp with Cocktail Sauce, Shredded Roasted Chicken Breast and lots of cut up raw vegetables! They always tell me how much easier Whole30 is to follow when you have a personal chef!
