Paleo: Day 30!

Today I made Western Omelets with Sweet Potato Hash for breakfast… we all agreed that this is one of our favorite breakfast meals. 🙂

For lunch, I cooked Quick Paleo Pancakes with lamb patties and eggs… we were in kind of a breakfasty mode today… they were soooo good!!! (I added some cocoa powder to them for good measure…)

For dinner, I cooked some Grilled Chicken with Nutty Cabbage… it was delicious, fast, and easy.

I can’t believe that today is Day 30 of the Paleo 30 Day Challenge!  We made it!!!  We’re all feeling so much better that we definitely want to stick with it.

I love Paleo and Paleo loves me!!!! 😀

Stay tuned for an exciting post coming tomorrow about some of the things I learned in 30 days! 😀  Here’s a hint… “Anyone can cook.” (If you can name the movie that is from it makes you even cooler… if it’s even possible to be cooler than you are now. I mean really, you’re pretty rad.)

Paleo: Day 28

I made Egg Tortes today for breakfast… (I was proud of myself, I separated the eggs without an egg separator for the first time in my life) after whisking the egg whites to their optimal fluffiness I couldn’t resist yelling, “It’s so FLUFFY!!!”

I also had to yell, “Someone has stolen three of my TORTES!!!!” (get it? Tortes… instead of tarts.) Anyway, they were delicious.

For lunch today I made beef fajitas with bell pepper and onion… I had an orthodontist appointment earlier (ouch!), so I heated up some butternut squash (since it’s soft) to go with mine… it was fantastic.

I made Greek Salmon for dinner… the recipe was for Greek Sea Scallops… but I had salmon and I’m not really sure if I like sea scallops… it turned out to be amazing! I love salmon!

I wore a bright purple eyeshadow today (Empress by Lime Crime) over their Candy Eyed Primer… and it lasted all day (even through a workout) and it still looks fantastic.  It is seriously my favorite primer now.  Speaking of Lime Crime… they are having a one-day sale on their eyeshadow and primer on October 1, you can find more details on their facebook page.

Paleo: Day 28!!!! Yay!!! Also, tomorrow is National Coffee Day… drink up me hearties yo ho!! 😉

Paleo: Day 26

Today for breakfast, I cooked turkey bacon and eggs and an apple hash (happy Johnny Appleseed day!).  It smelled soooo good and tasted awesome. I love apples.

We had salads with crockpot roast for lunch, which was fast, tasty, and extremely easy.

I cooked Almond Chicken for dinner… delicious! It was the perfect balance of flavors; it really reminded me of when Mom used to get Almond Chicken from a Chinese restaurant.

I got my first ever manicure today with Mom and Tooti, we got the shellac manicures… fabulous and the polish is sooo shiny and is totally dry once it sets! I have a plummy raisin color on my nails, it’s really nice for Fall… and it’s purple! 😀

We tried a new kind of Coconut Chai (by Zhena’s Gypsy Tea) today too… it is incredible.  The coconut adds a nice rounded sweetness to the heaviness of the black tea, it’s a nice full flavored tea… wonderful. 🙂

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 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 20

Today I made turkey bacon and eggs with spinach and onion for breakfast.

We had leftover sloppy joes for lunch… since we were out of Portobello mushrooms, I cooked some normal mushrooms and mixed them in with the sloppy joe meat and served it with spinach.  I think it tasted even better today.

For dinner, I cooked some baked rosemary chicken, nutty cabbage, and strawberry soup… fabulous! The cabbage was amazing, it tasted like I was eating at a Chinese restaurant and the strawberry soup kind of tasted like a sherbet. So good!!! 😀

Day 20: Success! 😀

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!!
