Dinner was leftover pork and a peach. I cooked up some eggs for breakfast, so I'll be ready in the morning. I'm dragging a bit today and it looks like my edema is back (thanks, high heels). But, as Scarlett O'Hara says "tomorrow is another day" and hopefully I'll be feeling better!
I managed to stay strong in the face of so many carbs. Had roast beef, cucumber, a few cashews and some cherries for lunch!
Because I was dealing with a mildly upset stomach, but still hungry, I decided I needed a sweet potato for dinner. I baked up a garnet yam with some ghee, roasted a bunch of Brussels sprouts and ate part of a rotisserie chicken. I checked the label on the one from Sprouts and I am good to go! The rotisserie chicken is a lifesaver for me many nights, it's so easy and delicious and great leftover!
For dinner I decided to "paleo-ize" my mustard pork chop recipe. I also roasted some turnips and parsnips and came to the conclusion that I don't like roasted turnips and parsnips, so there's that. The pork chops turned out very nicely, though the coating wasn't as sticky as it normally is, and substituting almond milk for regular milk meant the sauce was thinner and a little sweeter than normal, but still good!
Day 11: It's Friday! Didn't have time for eggs this morning, so I made do with my banana and almond butter. For lunch I had leftover roasted beets and Brussels sprouts along with the last of the rotisserie chicken. I threw the chicken carcass in a plastic bag along with my other veggie scraps to make stock.
Dinner saw my very first attempt at "zoodles" or zucchini noodles (I threw in a summer squash too). I'd been craving pasta with marinara all day - this was as close as I could get. You know what? They're not half-bad! Though, I was missing parmesan.
Day12 : I'm working this Saturday, so carrots and hard-boiled eggs are my breakfast at my desk. It's hard work ruling the world, you know?
Stopped by the "normal" grocery store on my way home for seltzer. Every single scrap of deli meat in the whole place had either preservatives or added sugar or BOTH! I'll have to pick up some more at Sprouts when I do the farmer's market tomorrow.
Got another headache today, not sure what brought it on, but ended up taking a couple hour nap. Woke up and made Tom Kha (Vietnamese coconut shrimp soup) for dinner, it turned out superbly! Really nice!
I ended up making ketchup and mayonnaise. The ketchup had a bit of a strange flavor, I think I may try adding a bit more vinegar, and the mayo came together like magic. So obviously, I had to make burgers and fries for dinner. I even found a recipe for paleo buns! There was a lot of experimenting (and eating) in my kitchen today!
I'm going to marinate some chicken breasts tonight for lunches this week and I already have my eggs ready to go for Monday morning! Almost to the halfway point!
