I always thought mayo was made in a factory. I mean, it probably IS for the most part, but I just never realized it could be a home thing. That’s probably why it’s so weirdly satisfying when you zone out, drizzle your oil in and look down to find that you’ve created delicious mayo. Then you can make things like this bacon, tuna and avocado salad that I’m about to mash up (plus salt, pepper, roasted garlic powder, onion powder and oregano). For the mayo, I use @meljoulwan ’s recipe (just Google “well fed mayo”) with a little less lemon juice than she calls for. . #mayo #tuna #bacon #avocado #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #januarywhole30 #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood
These are my Lazy Potatoes flanked by a small spinach scramble and some avocado. The potatoes are lazy because the prep is all of like 5 mins and they happen when I don’t feel like waiting for the @chefauntietoonie potatoes, which are more labor-intensive. These aren’t AS good but they’re different and still pretty great. Here’s what I did: . . Preheat oven to 450° (I used a toaster oven for maximum laziness) . Dice potato and toss to coat in whatever fat you want (I used olive oil) . Season to taste (I used salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary which I crushed up in my palm a little, Italian herbs which were also palm crushed), toss some more to coat in spices . Bake on a layer of tin foil placed directly on the rack for 30-35 mins (I like them pretty crisp) . Use the baking time to make whatever else you’re eating. If you’re eating nothing but potatoes, that’s okay too. . #potatoes #spinach #eggs #lazy #avocado #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #januarywhole30 #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood
Here’s what I remember: I woke up. Then suddenly I was making a big pan of bacon. This is Day 9. . Foil lined pan, 425°, 15-18ish min (depending on thickness and desired doneness), flip halfway through. . Move bacon to paper towel lined plate. . Eat bacon. . Pour fat through mesh strainer into an airtight container (I have a dedicated bacon fat Pyrex that i just keep adding to). If you lined your pan right, the foil should peel right off and fold up into a convenient lil pouring device. Refrigerate or freeze. . #bacon #day9 #baconfat #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #januarywhole30 #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood
Hey. Day 7 of January Whole 30 and I feel like my reflexes have improved. Not relevant to this meal but wanted you guys to know. . Anyway, this is part 6 of my 5,627-part Leftovers for Breakfast Series and it was so damn good. I cooked up some chopped, on-sale sugar-free bacon, added some onion so it would caramelize real nice. Then added a chopped @kenjilopezalt style smashed burger (action shot in pic 2), spinach and avocado (yes, I sometimes take my avocado within the scramble). Topped it all off with some @crystal.hot.sauce. . #breakfast #burger #breakfastfordinner #leftovers #jefftovers #bacon #eggs #onion #spinach #hotsauce #avocado #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #januarywhole30 #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood
Hey here’s a pumpkin cream cheese bundt cake I made last night and also ate for breakfast this morning.

Yeah, that’s skillet bacon mac and cheese. Yeah, I’m eating it right out of the skillet. No, it’s not Whole 30. Okay see ya. . #macandcheese #bacon #castironskillet #thanksgiving #happythanksgivng #notwhole30 #whole30 #cooking #foodfreedom #lifeafterwhole30 #realfood
Did you know it’s possible to eat too much spinach? Me neither. But that’s what my doctor told me. So here’s some roasted garlic and broccoli. . #notspinach #garlic #broccoli #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #novemberwhole30 #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood
Here’s a breakfast sandwich. I used toasted @simplemills bread, cheddar cheese, butter and a lil baby egg skillet. It is not whole 30. . #breakfast #egg #castiron #butter #cheddar #cheese #breakfastsandwich #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood
Okay. This looks kinda not great but it tasted pretty solid. I’m also at the point in Whole 30 where I don’t really care what things taste like. So I’ll eat just about anything that’s compliant. . This is spaghetti squash, roasted and... spaghetti’d? Then pan sautéed with some bacon and spinach. Then I topped it with some kind of leftover compliant sauce and two @chefauntietoonie meatballs. . #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #septemberwhole30 #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood #spaghettisquash #meatballs #spinach #garlic #bacon
This unspectacular-looking late night spinach and bacon scramble tasted weirdly incredible. But the real story here is how well my cast iron seasoning held up to these eggs! . #eggs #bacon #spinach #castironskillet #seasoning #castiron #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #septemberwhole30 #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood . @uswellnessmeats @wholefoods @lodgecastiron @cholulahotsauce
Not even sure how this happened. I started eating some Instant Pot BBQ Chicken. Then I needed some spinach. Then I added garlic and bacon to the spinach. Then I added an avocado ‘cause it was there. Then I topped it with @chefauntietoonie pesto... also ‘cause it was there. I DO know it was way more delicious than it had any right to be. . #bbq #chicken #instantpot #spinach #bacon #garlic #avocado #pesto #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #septemberwhole30 #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood
This is a big old Last Call Omelet. Just about everything on this plate is expiring, so I cooked it. I’m working on a different recipe for later but since scrambles and omelets keep my Whole 30s afloat, I thought you should know. . Inside: . @uswellnessmeats bacon . @wholefoods Italian sausage . spinach . 4 eggs . Outside: . @sprouts frozen hash browns . avocado . @cholulahotsauce . #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #septemberwhole30 #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood #sausage #bacon #spinach #avocado #eggs #hashbrowns #omelet
Wow. Is it time for part 5 of my 5,627-part Leftovers for Breakfast Series already?? . For this round, I turned some leftover Whole 30 Chicken Tenders and roasted garlic broccoli (all made by @chefauntietoonie ) into an omelet topped with avocado and @cholulahotsauce. I also added some fresh @uswellnessmeats bacon because... well, you know. . #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #septemberwhole30 #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood #omelet #eggs #chickentenders #chicken #broccoli #garlic #avocado #hotsauce #breakfast #leftovers #jefftovers
Well, I’ve been making hard-boiled eggs like a goddamn idiot my whole life. And I posted this basic-ass boomerang because you probably have too. No weird tricks. No weird additions. No need for an ice bath after. In fact, I ate some warm and they were fantastic. They peel easy and they cook perfectly. It’s the @kenjilopezalt method and I’m so mad I never knew it before: . . Boil 2 qts water in a 3 qt lidded pan . Lower 6-8 eggs into boiling water, cook 30 sec . Add 12 ice cubes . Bring back to a boil (about 17 mins) . Reduce heat to low . Cook at a sub-simmer (190°) for 11 mins . Put in a bowl, run under cool water, eat . #eggs #hardboiledeggs #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #septemberwhole30 #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood
In part 4 of my 5,627-part Leftovers for Breakfast Series, I turned this leftover @chefauntietoonie stuffed pepper into an omelet. Oh, and I added some spinach in an effort to force more vegetables because it’s September Whole 30. . #whole30 #paleo #whole30approved #cooking #whole30recipes #paleodiet #foodfreedom #paleorecipes #septemberwhole30 #lifeafterwhole30 #whole30compliant #iamwhole30 #realfood #peppers #omelet #eggs #spinach #stuffedpeppers #leftovers #jefftovers #sausage
