green beans with figs
I’m sure many of you have heard of the Whole30. It’s a way of eating that focuses on proteins, vegetables, healthy fats and some fruit. Sounds easy right? It can actually be a lot of work depending on the way you eat before you start the Whole30 and if you like cooking/meal planning. I eat really well but there are times that I have treats or get derailed from how I should be eating. I needed a brush up because guess what….summer is right around the corner. No more hiding underneath sweatshirts, sweatpants, winter sweaters and jackets. Are you going to like what you see when all those layers come off and it’s shorts and tank top season? Do you need a brush up? I’m not saying you have to do the Whole30 but don’t forget to take advantage of your complimentary nutrition meetings. We also offer 4 week nutrition meetings as well as personalized meal plans. Remember that small changes lead to big results. To get started you can for the first week drink more water or add an extra serving of veggies daily and build from there. You don’t need to make drastic changes to see results.
Anyway, back to the green beans. I was browsing through the Whole30 cookbook I have and I saw the recipe above. I made my own changes and let me tell you it’s pretty damn delicious. I didn’t add the squeeze of lemon because I had none but it would be great. I love lemon; it’s right underneath my love for chocolate. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
