Super easy and delicious potato salad with sausages
Potato yay or potato nay
For the record; there is endless debate whether or not a potato is “allowed” in a paleo diet or not. Obviously it contains a lot of starches so probably not a good idea to eat potatoes every day but I think they fit into a paleo lifestyle without any issues. You might feel differently and you could change the potatoes here for sweet potatoes if you want. That would be a different flavor all together but still tasty.
Whole30 is over!
I think this potato salad is a great way to celebrate the end of my whole30. Yesterday was day 30 and I am sorry for not giving you more daily updates as I had originally planned. The problem was that there wasn’t really much to mention.. 😉 It all went rather effortless and without any issues. I guess it helps enormously if you already eat like this most of the time anyway. I did lose a couple of kilo’s and I’m glad to report that the sugar cravings have vanished. That was one of the reasons I started this one to begin with anyway. Holiday periods and too much ice cream gave me bad sugar cravings.
Now back to normal
So today is the start of reintroduction. To be honest I am not really sure what I should be reintroducing at this point. Maybe chick peas. I do love chickpeas. Or yogurt. Maybe I’ll have a yogurt breakfast this morning and see how I feel. Time will tell! For now I am leaving you with this delicious potato salad recipe that is delicious. For the dressing you can use any mustard you like but I love using a spicy mustard to give the salad an extra kick!
