Paleo: Day 23

For breakfast, we had boiled eggs (I boiled them last night… planning ahead!) with some walnuts and berries.  Mmmmm…

Lunch was really easy too; we had leftovers from last night’s dinner… burgers and veggies, yummy!

We all wanted a tasty treat today and I had been snooping around on the Fast Paleo site and ran across this recipe for Paleo Frappucinos… they were OUTSTANDING.  I was shocked at how they were the perfect balance of sweetness and flavor.  Fabulous!!! Oh so good!!! 😀

I cooked a roast in the crockpot today, so for dinner all I had to do was roast some veggies in the oven and slice the meat.  So good!!! The meat was delicious!!

Funny… a truck with a trailer was driving by and for a second… it looked like there was a Narwhal (yes, a Narwhal) in the back of their trailer.  It ended up being some sort of construction equipment with a mop handle standing in it… not nearly as exciting as a Narwhal… but hey!

If you need a tasty treat, try the Paleo Frap (makes me think of Admiral Ackbar: “It’s a Frap!”)… you’ll be glad ya did! 😉

Paleo: Day 22

Today seemed like a good day to wear my Modern Gypsies shirt… so I did. 🙂

For breakfast today, I cooked some eggs with raspberries, blackberries, and almonds on the side.

We had leftover tacos and cabbage slaw for lunch… yummy!  Mom surprised me with some new spatulas after we went grocery shopping.  I LOVE spatulas.  Thanks Mom! 😀

I cooked Teriyaki Portobello Burgers with steamed broccoli and squash for dinner… sooo good!!! I didn’t like (loathed, despised, couldn’t stand) mushrooms a few days ago… but after the Portobello sloppy joes, I think they are amazing! I actually REALLY like mushrooms now… go figure! They are delicious! 🙂

I watched The Biggest Loser premier last night… so good, this looks like it’s going to be a great season, the contestants seem to really care about each other.  New trainers… Dolvett Quince is hardcore, totally motivating, and might be my new favorite trainer on the show.

Today starts Week 4 of Paleo!!! 😀

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!!!!!!

Paleo: Day 4

Today I woke up to the happy thought, “Eggs and berries for breakfast! Yay!!!!”  So I cooked omelets with green and red bell peppers, served with berries! Soooo good!

We were out of our favorite tea so we made a trip to the tea store.  Before heading out, we each had a bit of chicken to tide us over until lunch.  We got our tea and I ended up getting a sketchbook and some paint while we were out.  I got a compliment on my Gypsies shirt today… specifically because of the fabulous mustachio printed on it.

When we got home, lunch was super easy and all I had to do was heat up the crockpot roast from last night.  It tasted even better today!

Then it was tea time! After tea I boiled eggs (served with almonds) for snack later and then ventured outside… it had cooled off so much that I almost needed a sweater! What was the temp? 83.  After it’s been 100+ nonstop for most of the summer, 83 is amazing.

I cooked beef stir fry for dinner and was surprised at how great it tasted… Tinkerbelle must have liked it too, she kept barking at me wanting more beefy bites…

Day 4: success.

Y’all have a Happy Labor Day tomorrow!
