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 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!!!

Grocery Shopping Trip 1

Last night, Mom and I pulled a Code 2319 by cleaning out the cabinets, fridge, freezer, and pantry.  At first it felt odd, weird, and even wrong, but once it was boxed up it felt awesome, like this is definitely what I should be doing.  Now that the cabinets are clear, it’s time to go shopping.

Armed with my Week 1 shopping list (from www.RobbWolf.com), The Paleo Solution book, and wearing my Gypsies shirt for moral support (well, actually it’s one of my favorite shirts now and it seemed to fit the occasion), we embark on the awesome adventure of hunting and gathering our meal ingredients.  Ok, in all actuality, “hunting and gathering”  in this case involves chucking stuff into the grocery basket… but that doesn’t sound nearly as impressive.  Anyway, here we go.

After going to the first store (shopping stop 1), I was pleased that we were able to get a great portion of our veggies and fruits for the week… for under $30!  To illustrate that healthy foods can be affordable (if you make them important to you) here’s a couple of pics of what we got:

Crazy right?!

Then it was home to put the newly gathered foods into their new home and then on to our fitness class.

I love the ladies in the class Mom and I go to, they are so fun and it’s nice to see familiar faces.  We got to chatting with one of the ladies and it turns out that her daughter has gone Paleo! So encouraging and exciting to find out!

After the class (where I found out that I’m in better shape than I thought!), shopping trip 2 was in order, this time meat and a few more produce items were locked stocked and loaded.  Once these were put up, it was time for our 3rd and final shopping trip of the day, this time looking for things like spices, eggs, nuts, tomato sauce… all of which were hunted and gathered successfully.

I learned to compare prices, see which stores are better for certain things and wrote down some of the comparisons.  It’s so nice to know that I can do this.  Thanks Mom for helping me learn which stores are better for what, prices, etc.

Paleo starts tomorrow!
