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 21

Today I cooked Turkey-Bacon-Carrot Quiche… it was phenomenal. The coconut milk in it made it taste creamy, almost like there was cheese in it!

For lunch we had leftovers chicken breast from last night with red chard cashew stir-fry.  I didn’t know what chard was a couple of days ago, but I have to say, it was amazing!

I cooked Paleo Tacos for dinner with a Purple Cabbage Slaw… AMAZING! Thanks Tooti for pointing me to the recipe!  None of us missed the taco shells at all… the flavors were delicious!

Went for a walk today, the weather was perfect… and saw a tarantula on the sidewalk… EWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!

I rode a little over 10 miles on a stationary bike today… while watching Food Network…  (NEVER thought that I actually WANT to watch something on Food Network at the gym… and enjoy it?!) I learned a new way to chop onions and different herbs to put with lamb… awesome!

It’s kind of crazy to think that 22 days ago I didn’t cook.  Now I do… and I LOVE it. They say it takes 21 days to develop a habit – this is day 21.  I like it!!! Thanks Robb Wolf and The Paleo Solution!!!!

Tomorrow starts week… 4?!? Wow!!!

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 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?
