Tahini Dill Potato Salad

Potatoes were a life saver during this past month. I embarked on a Whole 30, which is a 30 day diet intervention that tends to be considered pretty “strict” by paleo standards. No added sugar, even natural sugars like honey or maple syrup. By default, a Whole 30 often leaves me a little light on my carbohydrate intake which is no bueno for this breastfeeding mama. So back to those life-saving potatoes. By adding in these starchy fellas here and there, I was able to keep my carb intake at respectable levels without having to chomp a bunch of fruit or sweet potatoes. Sometimes I get a little burned out on yams and sweet potatoes. And if you do too, here’s an alternative!

Pair this potato salad with burgers, roasted chicken, or a greek salad.

This tahini sauce also works great as a tuna mixer!

Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
