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 18

We had eggs and sweet potato hash for breakfast today and a salad with the crockpot chicken for lunch.  Most excellent!

For dinner I cooked a Salmon Scramble (which I learned you can actually use any type of meat with) and it was extremely easy and super tasty.  Tasted like comfort food… Delicious! 😀

It rained today, I’m so thankful for it!

Remember, tomorrow (the 19th) is Talk Like a Pirate Day! Arrrr!!!

Paleo: Day 7

I made a chicken-apple hash for breakfast.  Tooti said it tasted like Fall and it totally did!

For lunch, we had lamb patties with lettuce, tomato, and an icy strawberry puree. (We were out of fresh strawberries, so we took some frozen ones, chunked them in the blender, added about ¼ cup of water and blended it up into a tasty treat.)

Dinner was amazing.  Roasted asparagus and Alaskan (Go AK!) cod, with berries and balsamic vinegar for dessert… AMAZING!

The weather today was incredible.  Totally soaking up the cool front… maybe it will rain soon.

Paleo Week 1: Success!!!!!!

Paleo: Day 1

Today was Day 1 of going Paleo.  Yes, I cooked all of today’s meals and not one of them involved cake pops. LOL. Breakfast was fun and pretty easy once I got into the swing of things and it tasted gooood.  Lunch was reeeaaallly tasty and pretty easy too, when I was chopping the veggies, I thought of Meryl Streep on Julie and Julia… I love that movie, she’s so funny as Julia Child. I was pretty surprised that I could cook chicken fajita salad for lunch and have it taste that great and be that filling.

The snack, we decided to divide into “pre-Zumba” and “post-Zumba” which ended up working out really well. It gave me time to get home from ZumbaTone and have time to change before I started dinner… dinner….

mmmmmm…. Dinner. Was. AMAZING.  This was seriously one of the absolute BEST salmon meals I’ve ever had. For real.  Mmmmmm so good!!!! Not to toot my own horn or anything…  *toot toot* but I’m pretty surprised and proud of myself… and guess what? BOOM. It was EASY. Honestly, the guide in The Paleo Solution is SO well thought out that it really made everything super-de-duper easy to follow.

The best part about this: *cue music* I feel good… na na na na na na na… So good!

I think coconut oil is my new favorite.
