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 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.
