I made a smoothie before leaving for work. Here's the recipe:
- 1 cup frozen organic blueberries
- 1 organic banana
- 2 tb almond butter
- Coconut Milk
I am normally an eat-outter at lunch and I wanted to make sure that didn't have to change. So for lunch I went to Subway and did a chopped spinach salad with tomatoes, olives, banana peppers, and grilled chicken. I had them put a little of the red wine vinaigrette on the side just to give it some flavor.
As soon as I got home I grabbed an organic barlett pear. By this time I was starving because I didn't think ahead and the temptation to run through McDonald's or Sonic on my way home was intense, but I fought it and made it home so I could eat a good snack.
I have to say our first Paleo dinner turned out awesome. It was such a beautiful day so Chad fired up the grill and we had hamburgers and fries, Paleo style. Here are the recipes:
Paleo Hamburgers-- you're going to need a knife and fork for this one! :-)
- 1 lb grass fed lean ground beef
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 9 free-range eggs
While the burgers are on the grill, use bacon grease or coconut oil to fry up 8 eggs-- set aside on plate.
Place burger patties in between two fried eggs (imagine the eggs as your bun). Top with mustard, guacamole, other Paleo friendly condiments of choice. We used guacamole and it was a perfect addition!
Sweet Potato Fries
- 1 large sweet potato (if it's big enough that all you'll need... two smaller ones would be just fine)
- Coconut Oil
- Sea Salt
- Coconut Flakes
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coat baking pan/cookie sheet with coconut oil.
Peel sweet potato and dice into fries. Put sea salt and coconut flakes (to taste) in baggie and add fries. Shake until all pieces are well covered.
Bake at 425 for about 10-15 minutes.
Overall the day went great. I learned my mistake and I have plenty of snack options with me today at work. Side note-- I slept through the entire night first time in several weeks without waking up... not sure if it was coincidence or if my body can already tell a difference.
