My Whole 30 Journey

If you creep far enough back on my personal instagram page, you would have seen various pictures of food starting on September 6th, 2016.

That was the fateful day I started Whole 30 for the first time. After the 30 days, I lost about 15lbs and several inches.

But first, let’s back up – let’s review the basics: What is Whole 30?

My Favourite Cauliflower Rice Recipe

I love cauliflower rice. I discovered it in my Whole 30 days and haven’t looked back. It can be a pain to make if you’re grating the cauliflower by hand, but a food processor is a saving grace to have. Alternatively, some grocery stores sell pre-grated cauliflower which is what I used in this meal (thank you, Farm Boy).

Zucchini Lasagna

Lasagna, especially homemade lasagna, is one of my favourite meals of all time. While I was trying to find low-carb alternatives to some of my foods on Pinterest, I found a recipe that called for using zucchini instead of pasta.

I was sold on the idea of using zucchini as noodles during my Whole 30 experience (which I will talk about in a later blog) so I was excited to try this recipe!Screen Shot 2017-10-15 at 6.50.48 PM.png

The link for this recipe can be found on Ketogasm’s website. My only variations for the recipe were:

  • I used 2-3 smaller zucchini rather than 1 large
  • I used 1 400mL tub of ricotta cheese
  • I used PC Blue Menu marinara sauce rather than Rao’s marinara sauce

Definitely easy to make and very delicious. I can’t wait to have it for lunch this week!

Welcome to From Panic to Plate!

Welcome to a safe place where you can read about two different things which are often connected: my experiences with anxiety and my experiences with food.

Read my story in the About section to learn about my journey of being diagnosed with Panic Disorder.

I look forward to inspiring your minds by both keeping the conversation regarding mental illness open and honest and by sharing recipes with you I have enjoyed making over the past few years.

Cheers,
