Day 12 of my whole30 and I’m back to feeling great! I have lots of energy and just feel happy overall, really can’t complain. I had a great day and finished it off with a great dinner of Italian marinated chicken thighs!

I had a surprise day off yesterday so I actually slept right through breakfast. Started my day off with a handful of macadamia nuts. Then it was time for lunch, so I finished off my tomato soup with paleo meatballs. Since I had an early lunch I definitely had a second lunch, some left over fajita steak and peppers with fresh pineapples.

After a day of leftovers I was ready to have something new for dinner. I joined Costco last week and decided to test a bunch of freezer marinades for chicken thighs, and this one is the best so far! When I came home from the store I divided the chicken into bags of 4 each with a different marinade and then threw them into the freezer.

Having the chicken marinating while thawing made it such an easy dinner. I just chopped up some summer squash and onions and threw them in a pan with the chicken thighs, perfect. And of course whole30 friendly!

    This would be on my hubby’s “must-make” list, for sure–anything with Italian seasoning is a must in his book! Sounds like a great combination of flavors.
