Day 4

Paleo egg muffins are a God-send. 

I am not a morning person so I needed a healthy breakfast on-the-go. These last for a few days in the fridge so I was stoked when I found a recipe on these 2 websites:http://www.primal-palate.com/2010/07/breakfast-on-go-egg-muffins.html and http://everydaypaleo.com/2010/03/24/egg-cupcakes/

I did it a bit differently though so here's the recipe-

*Note these aren't my exact measurements. In fact I made way too many veggies which I've stored in the fridge for eggs later this week. This is what I think may work better for 12 egg muffins.

10-12 eggs whisked well
1.5 cup broccoli
1 cup spinach
1 green pepper 
6 pieces bacon (or sausage) FULLY COOKED
coconut oil
other suggested ingredients from websites I saw: onions, zucchini, egg whites, roasted red & yellow peppers

-Preheat oven to 400 degrees
-Grease muffin pans with olive oil
-Saute veggies in a frying pan over medium heat with the coconut oil.
-Cut off sauteing process about half-way through cooking. Veggies will finish in oven
-Mix the veggies and bacon 
-Divide veggie/bacon mix evenly between muffin tins
-Stir veggie and egg mixture briefly to disperse evenly in tins
-Bake the egg muffins in oven for approx 20 minutes. Cooking time may vary depending on the tin and oven
-Let the muffins cool and store in your fridge...They typically keep for about a week

For a snack I made the strawberry banana almond butter smoothie. delicious again. I stored it in my work fridge. Then for lunch I had a work meeting at a restaurant and just about the only think I could order was a grilled chicken salad with oil and vinegar for dressing. For a snack later I had a few raw almonds. 

So for dinner I had the pulled pork and paleo bbq sauce...the pork turned out great but the bbq sauce tasted like nothing. There has to be a better paleo recipe. 

Here's what I did for the pork:


2 lb. pork tenderloin
2 cups broth (I used chicken) 
1 onion
2 cloves garlic 
full cloves (which I completely forgot) 

1. Cover bottom of crock pot with onion, garlic and broth. I chopped the onion but the recipe didn't specify
2. Pierce tenderloin with cloves
3. Cook on low for 7-9 hours

And I suggest finding a good bbq sauce! 

I made zucchini with this. I heated some coconut oil and seasoned the zucchini with rosemary, oregano and pepper and sautéed for about 10-15 minutes. delicious! 

For exercise today I walked around my neighborhood for 20 minutes.

I go to Trivia every tuesday at an Irish pub and it was rough! I wanted a beer but passed, then my table ordered homemade chips with blue cheese crumbles...ugh...I passed again. 

I still really want chocolate, I don't think this craving will ever go away. 


  1. good job again today! another day down...I too never stopped graving chocolate the first time. I am doing okay this time actually and haven't graved anything - yet.
    Today I had:
    3 paleo pancakes, one piece of my flaxseed bread
    left over chuck roast and veggies
    a peach
    some almonds
    pumpkin muffin
    tuna and spinach
    a smoothie (strawberry and banana)

    I feel very satisfied at the moment!

  2. p.s. your egg muffins look bomb!

  3. what do you make with the tuna and spinach? also how do you make the avocado and tuna thing? I might try that today for lunch

  4. PS- i seriously love the paleo pancakes!
