Oooh! I have less than a week left on the Whole30. My jeans don’t feel quite so snug anymore, which is nice. 

This morning, I sous vided some scrambled eggs

…and gobbled them up along with a helping of leftover braised kale.

I love how the water oven makes the eggs all soft and custardy – with no furious whisking and monitoring required. 

My morning was crammed with errands and by the time I got around to eating lunch, it was already 2:00 p.m. For lunch, I nuked a yam and topped it with leftover brisket and kale stew.

When the Double-O’s and I came home in the evening, I coated a pork belly and shoulder roast

….with Shallot Pepper seasoning

..and vacuum-sealed them before storing them back in the fridge.

Everyone was tired and hungry, so I quickly threw together dinner. Luckily, I had a couple of pre-cooked Sous Vide Crispy Chicken Thighs and a flatiron steak (130 F for 14 hours) so I popped them in the preheated water oven to warm up.

For the side dishes, I sauteed some mushrooms with seasoning salt and balsamic vinegar

…and reheated leftover winter squash puree and braised kale.

Once the veggies were finished, I torched and sliced the steak…

…and crisped up the thighs in some virgin red palm oil.

Here’s my dinner plate:

Before heading to bed, I dunked the seasoned and sealed pork belly and shoulder roast into the SousVide Supreme (175 F for at least 12 hours).

My week off is coming to a screeching halt ‘cause my nightshifts resume tomorrow. To counteract the bad news, sign up for my giveaway already!
