Well good evening!
It’s been a weird kinda eating day today. Let me try to explain…
So breakfast felt forced down this morning and I boxed it up and took it with me to work where I munched on it over recess and then on my way home at lunchtime.
Having eaten the remainder of my fruit salad I got busy doing housework and then panicked to get back to work. I scoffed down some deli ham and grabbed a Larabar and headed back to work. THEN… after school I was ravenous and scarfed a ton of food from my pantry: BIG handful of trail mix, wedge of paleo scone and then a big handful of dried apple rings. Once again satisfied I went onto round 3 of my day… Kid’s after school activities.
Met hubby for dinner late and we tried the Big Fish Grill in Woodinville for the first time.
I ordered the Dungeness Crab & Shrimp Louie Salad without the Jack cheese and changed the dressing to Balsamic Vinaigrette.
Needless to say I was still a little full from my 4 o’clocksies I boxed maybe half and brought it home for lunch tomorrow. The meal was ok, not sure it would be a favorite place of mine.
I have an even crazier night tomorrow night and plan on eating out with friends before we all attend my son’s school show. FUN!!
It may be a double posting on Saturday
Whirlwind of a day today! I did enjoy my all meals with lovely people today
Paleo porridge with my youngest this morning as usual.
Lunch with my eldest at her new pad I came bearing lunch of “#5 Vito Unwiches” and all fruit “5 Fruit Frenzy” smoothies. We sat on her little patio and enjoyed the sun
Having had a very successful track meet my youngest and I headed to PCC for dinner and met up with friends.
I didn’t eat all the chocolate but I did eat all the Kale Krunch The Tomato and Cabbage soup was amazing!
Double entry tonight. I was in bed shortly after my youngest last night, asleep by 9:30. My days just keep getting busier and this working cavemama needs her sleep.
May is proving to be a crazy month, teachers are trying to wind down as kids are totally wound up Not counting down the days but… T- 24 school days!
Oooo doesn’t seem so bad now that I’ve counted them
Anyway, here are my meals for the last two days…
Leftover Coconut Flour Paleo Pancakes from Sunday.
Only photographed today’s lunch – leftover BBQ ribs. Yesterday I had a Larabar and… UGH, I forgot, sorry!
Great dinners! Yesterday, Spaghetti Squash Bolognese (YUMMY) and today Grilled pork steaks and peaches with roasted veggies (Delicious!)
Not sure what will be on my agenda for the rest of the week dinner-wise as we have something on each night.
Watch this space as they say!
FIRST, let me give you my number, 149 baby – woohoo!
This was the beginning to my perfect day!
I made great paleo pancakes this morning. I used my original coconut pancake recipe but I reduced the eggs to 5 and they were much thicker and fluffier. I add choc chips to some, left the others plain and made an awesome fruit salad.
Actually forgot to have lunch. We went for coffee at Victor’s and I tried an almond milk Almond Joy and found it way to sweet for my liking. I sipped it politely and drank maybe a quarter, if that. I now know to stick with my usual Americano
Having received a very generous grift card during Teacher Appreciation Week from a student at school, the family and I headed to PF Changs for dinner.
We had a great meal, the company was fantastic and my Mother’s Day… PERFECT!
I’ve had a wonderful day celebrating being a mom I’m a lucky lady!
I’ve been on a mission to get more protein in my kids in the morning before school. They don’t eat paleo exclusively and breakfast is where they really want to have their grains and carbs. For the most part I don’t push, but offer food I think is better for them. Sometimes they go for it and sometimes they don’t. Last week I had a little extra weekend time and decided to make egg cups to keep in the fridge for the week’s breakfasts. The boy wanted bacon and cheese in his and the girl wanted pizza flavored. I wasn’t sure exactly how to go about that, but I gave it a shot and she seemed to like them. Each morning, she would get out one of her egg cups, put it in the microwave for a few seconds to knock off the chill and gobbled it down. Give them a try!
Pizza Egg Cups
6 slices of bacon cut in half
6 Tbs pizza or pasta sauce (I like classic or newman’s own)
optional : olives, peppers, mushrooms, or other pizza toppings.
Beat 6 eggs in a bowl with a fork. In a muffin tin, lay half of a slice of bacon across the bottom then lay the other half on top of it making an X in the bottom of your pan. Spoon in egg until it reaches almost to the top of the muffin cup. Place 1 Tbs of sauce in the middle of the egg then top with pepperoni slice. Add any optional ingredients you would like. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until eggs are set. Cool then eat!
