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 12

Today we finished up the jerky… i.e. dehydrating it in the oven.  Tastes so amazing!  I based the marinade on this recipe, but modified it slightly and ended up with the following ingredients (and a longer marinating time):

2 cups Tamari sauce (wheat-free soy sauce)

1 cup Worcestershire sauce

3 cups cranberry-grape juice (there was a LOT of meat)

¼ cup Teriyaki sauce

1 cup light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon (or more) ground black pepper, or to taste

Basically blended it all up… then Mom cut the meat into slices and it marinated for a couple of days in the fridge before we finished it up today! The finished product is DELICIOUS.

On to today’s menu!

For breakfast I cooked up some eggs with a side of zucchini. Pretty tasty.

We had a salad with turkey bacon for lunch… sooo good! Loved the salad, it had pine nuts in it and they were delectable.

For dinner I cooked a new version of chicken curry and it was a nice change for sure.

Fun day! Rabbit trail: I received a package from Lime Crime Makeup today… FANTASTIC! I had never tried their products before, but they are quickly climbing to the top of my “favorites” list.  The lipstick [which is gluten free!] stayed on through eating and drinking tea.  Exquisite.  Can’t wait to try out the eye shadow tomorrow! Thanks Lime Crime!

Paleo: Day 10

The water-leak got fixed today!!! Yay for running water!

I cooked some turkey bacon for breakfast, served with applesauce and some almond butter. FANTASTIC.

We went to the Farmer’s Market today, the weather was nice and it was fun to be out.  I picked up some ingredients for the next few days and everyone was so nice!  One lady even threw in a yellow onion with the purple ones that I bought, definitely a kind surprise.

For lunch, we had leftover steak on salads… yummy! (and easy!)

Apparently today was National Lacemaking Day (UK maybe?).  I don’t make lace, but I figured it was a good day to start the beef jerky making process.  Because jerky is totally like… um, meat’s version of lace… right? 😉 Anyway, we found a great marinade recipe that I mixed up and Mom sliced up the meat… go teamwork! The jerky’s marinating now.

For dinner, I cooked chicken curry again… so good! This time, I also cooked a cucumber soup, I was a bit hesitant, but happily shocked when it tasted AMAZING.

Woohoo! Day 10: Done!

Paleo: Day 9

I had some leftover steak and macadamia nuts for breakfast.  We found a water leak last night, so it was nice not to have to cook this morning.  Super props to Mom and Tooti for digging up the water pipe!

For lunch I cooked chicken breast and Indian-style slaw.  Flavorful and different.

I cooked chicken curry for dinner, one of Tooti’s favorites.  It ended up working out really well since she dug up the water pipe… like a little “SURPRISE!” to end the day with.  This was my first time EVER making a curry dish and I have to say, it turned out tasting pretty awesome.

I found a delicious coconut milk (canned Golden Star) and it tastes great in coffee too.  Definitely a nice treat.
