Paleo: Day 15

The weather cooled off a LOT today… I was tempted to grab a sweater this morning, but then thought better of it as it was probably 75 degrees outside… so nice!!!! 😀

I cooked some lamb patties and apples with cinnamon and cloves this morning, which complemented the cooler Fall weather with fantastic Fall flavors. So good! I love the apples especially.

We reheated some Chicken Alfredo that was leftover (planned ahead) for lunch, super easy… yum!

Mom and I went to Zumba class, met a bunch of really friendly people and had a lot of fun.  I had fun going to Zumba before (LOVE it), but it’s been a LOT more fun with Mom coming too… workout buddies really do make a difference!

I cooked a meaty spaghetti sauce served over roasted green beans for dinner… tasty!

Today starts Week 3 of going Paleo… what a delicious journey so far!

Paleo: Day 11

I was really curious about how breakfast world turn out… because this morning, I cooked Ginger Eggs.  Sounds odd, tastes amazing!  Way happy with how they turned out, could definitely taste an Asian influence.  Delicious.

Got some sister-time with Tooti this morning, super fun and she helped me plan a surprise for Mom… more on that later.

I boiled some beets (best song for cooking beets? Beat It. Also, try busting out some of those dance moves the next time you go grocery shopping.) for a beet-apple salad to go with the cod for lunch… A few days ago, I didn’t know what a beet looked like (other than the canned kind).  I sure had never cooked one before!  The salad was definitely tasty and while beets don’t make my “LOVE it” list, it was a fun experience and different type of treat.  The fish was delish.  Side Note: Beets WILL stain you hands.  A lot.

I cooked some chicken and cauliflower in the crockpot for dinner and it was time to start the surprise… I saw this recipe on FastPaleo.com for Paleo Brownies this morning and after some thought (and sneaking help from Tooti), I decided that it would make a nice surprise for Mom this evening.  I’m so proud of her for doing so well (and being open to) going Paleo that I wanted to do something nice to surprise her.

So, when we were out, we picked up some 85% Lindt Dark Chocolate… and after insisting that Mom take a break and have some tea in the living room… I made the brownies.

OH. MY. GOODNESS.

When I took the brownies out of the oven and surprised Mom with them, she was happily shocked! She had no idea that I was making brownies!  Best brownies ever.  I mean EVER. Of any kind.  They were DELICIOUS. We paired them with coconut whipped cream too… best ever.

So good! Mom was surprised, it was amazing.

Thanks to FastPaleo.com and Nutty Kitchen for the scrumdiddlyumtious recipes!!

P.S. I submitted a slogan on Threadless that you can vote on here.  Please vote it up, especially if college taught you to appreciate a good nap. 🙂 Thanks!

Paleo: Day 7

I made a chicken-apple hash for breakfast.  Tooti said it tasted like Fall and it totally did!

For lunch, we had lamb patties with lettuce, tomato, and an icy strawberry puree. (We were out of fresh strawberries, so we took some frozen ones, chunked them in the blender, added about ¼ cup of water and blended it up into a tasty treat.)

Dinner was amazing.  Roasted asparagus and Alaskan (Go AK!) cod, with berries and balsamic vinegar for dessert… AMAZING!

The weather today was incredible.  Totally soaking up the cool front… maybe it will rain soon.

Paleo Week 1: Success!!!!!!
