Paleo: Day 30!

Today I made Western Omelets with Sweet Potato Hash for breakfast… we all agreed that this is one of our favorite breakfast meals. 🙂

For lunch, I cooked Quick Paleo Pancakes with lamb patties and eggs… we were in kind of a breakfasty mode today… they were soooo good!!! (I added some cocoa powder to them for good measure…)

For dinner, I cooked some Grilled Chicken with Nutty Cabbage… it was delicious, fast, and easy.

I can’t believe that today is Day 30 of the Paleo 30 Day Challenge!  We made it!!!  We’re all feeling so much better that we definitely want to stick with it.

I love Paleo and Paleo loves me!!!! 😀

Stay tuned for an exciting post coming tomorrow about some of the things I learned in 30 days! 😀  Here’s a hint… “Anyone can cook.” (If you can name the movie that is from it makes you even cooler… if it’s even possible to be cooler than you are now. I mean really, you’re pretty rad.)

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!!!

Paleo: Day 14

Today for breakfast, I made a Peach-Pecan scramble… it tasted like bread pudding. FABULOUS.

I put a chicken in the crockpot to cook so it would be precooked for tomorrow. 🙂

We (me, Mom, and Tooti) had a fun day all hanging out and shopping, we took some beef jerky, celery, and oranges in my small pink ice-chest in the car with us and it was SO nice to have food with us when we were done! That jerky is amazing.

For dinner, I cooked Chicken Alfredo (Mom cooked the spaghetti squash for me so it would be ready sooner)… how the sauce tasted so incredibly creamy with no dairy ingredients was crazy.  It was so good!!! (Recipe can be found in The Paleo Solution) Delicious.

The America’s Got Talent finale results show was tonight… so psyched for Landau E. Murphy, Jr.!  Congrats!!!! He’s been my favorite from the beginning of the season… AMAZING talent and what an incredible story!  I cannot think of a more spectacular ending to this season.

I can’t believe we’re already on Paleo: Day 14!!! 🙂 Love it!

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.

Day 1: Breakfast
