Paleo: Day 25

Today for breakfast, I cooked a turkey bacon, spinach, onion, and egg scramble for breakfast and we had some applesauce for snack.

For lunch today, we had salads with the leftover roasted veggies from last night and some crockpot roast.  Mmmmm, so good!!

I cooked a curried veggie and salmon mix for dinner, which was easy and really tasty.  I’m shocked at how much I LOVE coconut milk now; it’s like my favorite ingredient.  I love it in tea, on Paleo Brownies, in curries, and it almost tastes like cheese or sour cream (especially if cold, when it thickens) on the side of egg dishes.

Day 25!!  The Amazing Race started today, seems like it will be a good season.  Couldn’t believe the girls got the passport back, Twitter to the rescue!

Tomorrow is Johnny Appleseed day… so have an apple and celebrate. 🙂

Paleo: Day 24

For breakfast today, we had leftover roast, eggs, and a side of applesauce… perfect combination of flavors for me!

For lunch, we had salads with tuna, raisins, walnuts, and bell peppers.  The raisins really complemented the tuna flavor, it was an unexpected nice pairing.

I roasted some veggies and sweet potatoes in the oven to go with leftover roast for dinner… delicious! Extremely easy too!

At the grocery store today, we noticed that they carried The Paleo Solution in their book section! So happy! I had to get a picture. 🙂

Learned today what a Delicata squash looks like… also learned that they’re hard to find around here this time of year… and that the texture is supposedly similar to that of a butternut squash. So I got a butternut squash.  This tidbit was brought to you by the helpful people at the Farmer’s Market. 😀

Plus… this was the box on the squash display at the store. Awesome squash.

Marketing Win.

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 18

We had eggs and sweet potato hash for breakfast today and a salad with the crockpot chicken for lunch.  Most excellent!

For dinner I cooked a Salmon Scramble (which I learned you can actually use any type of meat with) and it was extremely easy and super tasty.  Tasted like comfort food… Delicious! 😀

It rained today, I’m so thankful for it!

Remember, tomorrow (the 19th) is Talk Like a Pirate Day! Arrrr!!!

Paleo: Day 16

Today for breakfast, I cooked some more lamb with cooked apples on the side. It smelled so good!

For lunch, we had a chicken apple salad using the chicken that I had cooked in the crockpot the other day… yum!

We reheated the spaghetti sauce and green beans from yesterday for snack today, easy and extremely tasty.

I put some meat in the crockpot for dinner, so when it was time to eat, all I had to do was steam the veggies to go with it, which was really nice.

Mmmmm… I love tea.

Paleo: Day 14

Today for breakfast, I made a Peach-Pecan scramble… it tasted like bread pudding. FABULOUS.

I put a chicken in the crockpot to cook so it would be precooked for tomorrow. 🙂

We (me, Mom, and Tooti) had a fun day all hanging out and shopping, we took some beef jerky, celery, and oranges in my small pink ice-chest in the car with us and it was SO nice to have food with us when we were done! That jerky is amazing.

For dinner, I cooked Chicken Alfredo (Mom cooked the spaghetti squash for me so it would be ready sooner)… how the sauce tasted so incredibly creamy with no dairy ingredients was crazy.  It was so good!!! (Recipe can be found in The Paleo Solution) Delicious.

The America’s Got Talent finale results show was tonight… so psyched for Landau E. Murphy, Jr.!  Congrats!!!! He’s been my favorite from the beginning of the season… AMAZING talent and what an incredible story!  I cannot think of a more spectacular ending to this season.

I can’t believe we’re already on Paleo: Day 14!!! 🙂 Love it!

Paleo: Day 6

Today for breakfast, I cooked a Western Omelet with the BEST turkey bacon ever (from Applegate Farms) and sweet potato hash.  The sweet potato totally looked like a moustache.  AWE.SOME.  It tasted intensely amazing.  Best breakfast so far! I think I could eat it everyday.  Between that and the spaghetti last night, I think I’d be set… 😉

For lunch I cooked some chicken breast and precooked some for the snack later and breakfast tomorrow.  I served it with some broccoli that I reheated from a previous meal.

While lunch finished cooking, I went ahead and packaged up our snacks for later since I knew we’d be out and about.  When we left I put our snacks into a small ice chest (that Mom surprised me with!) and took it with us, it worked out great!

We went grocery shopping for the food for the next few days and it was so nice to have our snacks with us! Waaaay easier to shop on a not-empty stomach.

When we got home I reheated the last of the crockpot roast and made a cooked broccoli slaw with a side salad.  Delicious.

Day 6: Completed. and tasty.

Day 6: Breakfast!

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!

Paleo: Day 3

Yay Day 3! Today we had leftovers from last night (plus some avocado) for breakfast.  Tooti was leaving early, so I packed up her breakfast last night (thanks for the suggestion Tooti!), she said it tasted good this morning.  Tasted good to me too!

For lunch, after running some errands, Mom and I had a tuna cabbage salad, surprisingly tasty, super fast and easy. Then had leftovers from lunch as snack later.

I’d started a roast in the crockpot after breakfast and pre-chopped the veggies (veggies got added in a couple of hours before dinner to avoid getting mushy).  I texted Tooti that the roast would be done when she got home… It smelled awesome.  When dinnertime rolled around, all I had to do was dip up the veggies and cut the meat, delicious!  Tobey and Tinkerbelle were happy too, they got some Paleo meat snacks from it.

Again, the theme today: easy to make, tasty to eat.

I still love crockpots. Do they come in purple?

Paleo: Day 2

Today went pretty well and tasted great. Breakfast consisted of leftovers from last night and even though Mom had to “pretend she was Scandinavian” to eat fish for breakfast, I thought it was pretty tasty.

After figuring out how to make cooking lunch fit with today’s schedule, I ended up pre-cooking and Mom brought it with her when she met Tooti and I to go to Whole Foods.  It worked out (thanks Mom!) and again, tasted awesome.

Whole Foods was having a sale on Free-Range ground beef, so we decided to stock up.  I don’t think I’ve ever been so psyched over ground beef before, but I was ECSTATIC.  I resisted the urge to say, “Meat snacks!!” (wouldn’t that be an awesome ringtone?!) to the cashier when we were checking out, though I did feel pretty carnivorous loading up the meat onto the checkout counter.  It was great.

Dinner was super easy.  I started a chicken in the crockpot after breakfast (many squeals and ewws when uh, cleaning out the chicken…  why do they put all of the stuff back in that they just took out? We bought this one chicken that had 2 necks in it once… I think I was 13. Made me wonder…). This was my first whole chicken to crockpot cook EVER and with some spice-Jedi advice from Tooti and cooking tips from Mom, it turned out to be great.  Tooti asked me if I ever thought that I could cook like this and the answer was no.  Thanks sis! To complete dinner, all I had to do when I got home was steam the broccoli and make a side-salad.

I love crockpots.
