I love healthy eating. I have tried a few different varieties of different healthy lifestyles, I have done the 21 Day Sugar Detox, I have done the Paleo lifestyle, I have done tradition clean eating, I have done My Fitness Pal Calorie Counting, and now I am in the middle of the Whole 30. As far as the different challenges go so far Whole 30 has probably been my favorite even though I haven’t even finished it yet. I think I am planning on transitioning my family to a Paleo lifestyle at the end but we will see. One of the reasons the Whole 30 has been my favorite so far is the allowance of fruit, unlike the 21 Day Sugar Detox I have done in which I found myself crying over a half eaten green apple that was thrown away before I had the chance to finish eating it (no joke its a hard challenge). So since I have been enjoying Whole 30 so much I want to share some of the meals my family and I have been eating. So today I am sharing Whole 30 Roasted Cabbage with Chicken Sausage.
I love this meal for 2 reasons, it is soooo easy to make and the sausages are soooo delicious. To make this meal truly Whole 30 you have to make sure you buy the correct sausages. It took me a little while to find chicken sausages that were Whole 30 compliant because they weren’t at my normal grocery store (Market Basket for those fellow New Englanders) but out of all places I did find them at Walmart! The sausages are Chef Bruce Aidells brand ‘Chicken & Apple‘. These Chicken & Apple sausages are so yummy they are sweetened with fruit juice concentrate and include bits of dried apple, I am actually drooling while writing this. So these sausages are just a part of this meal, cabbage is sliced and tossed with a diced apple, onion, olive oil, fennel, and celery seed. The cabbage is then roasted on a sheet pan, the chicken sausages are thrown on halfway through cooking and voila dinner.
The ease of Whole 30 Roasted Cabbage with Chicken Sausage might be among its strong suits, in 30 minutes dinner is ready. So if you haven’t gotten a chance to check out the Whole 30 yet I definitely recommend it if you are looking to get back to eating healthy.
