We’ve been munching under the radar with our Whole30 experiment this month. It’s not a new year’s resolution; I’m picking my own brain and can’t recall how we even decided to do Whole30. I probably read something somewhere on one of my rabbit-trail Google strolls.
I probably saw something about anti-inflammatory claims and wanted to see it would do a number for my ongoing runner’s ailments. IT Band, I’m looking at you.
I’m sure if I just quit running, my pains would magically dissipate. But no, I’ll just give up all my favorite foods for 30 days instead. #iamnotnormal
I’m now 16 days in, and it feels something like a Wednesday; hump day, but it’s a month and not a day. 😖 Feels great to be half done, but then there’s half more to go.
Stay tuned for our post-Whole30 update coming up. Hubby and I have both been keeping notes to share with y’all at the end of this thing. I’ve got a lot of pros and cons to share.
For now, I’m sharing this Easy Tahini Sauce Dip. It’s a sauce-dip because it’s flexibly yummy like that. It’s Whole30 and Paleo compliant, but who cares…we’d eat it all year long. If you like hummus, this Tahini Dip is right up your alley…
In order to keep Whole30 compliant, there are no legumes or beans in this mix. Just wonderful sesame paste, garlic, spices, and the brightness of lemon.
It’s delish with baby carrots and all kinds of veggies. It’s fantastic with this savory Chicken Shawarma (also Whole30 compliant.) It’s also way, way good with sweet potato chips and root veggie chips.
For all those who aren’t interested in trendy diets: grab the pita chips for dipping, dollop it all over your pita bread, or use it as a nutritious spread in sandwiches.
Whole30, Paleo, or none of the above…this creamy, guilt-free tahini dip will keep you munching happy.
Easy Tahini Sauce Dip (Whole30, Paleo)
- In a food processor, combine all ingredients. Process on high until mixture is thoroughly combined and smooth. If it's too thick, add a bit of water until the sauce/dip reaches desired consistency. Serve with fresh veggies, root chips, or as a condiment for your meal (it's wonderful with chickenshawarma.)
Keeps very well in an airtight container in fridge.
