Things I learned in 30 days… or Paleo: Day 31

  1. I learned that anyone really CAN cook.  Ratatouille says it best: 
  2. I learned that I really DO feel better on Paleo… and this song definitely represents how I was feeling “OK” but not great.   It’s a good reminder to keep going forward, or as Lewis Carroll wrote, “I can’t go back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
  3. I learned what beets look like.
  4. I now know what a jicama tastes like.
  5. Miracles happen: I like mushrooms now. I also love cooking now.
  6. Planning ahead is your friend.
  7. Planning ahead makes my life easier.
  8. I don’t miss dairy.
  9. I like coconut milk
  10. Never discount something just because you think the combination of foods is weird.  I actually didn’t cook anything that I didn’t end up liking.
  11. You can make time to eat right.
  12. Eating well is a commitment.

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! 😀
