Day 17 & 18

I haven't really eaten anything out of the ordinary these days except for a new recipe I tried that turned out delicious.

Day 17:
-strawberry/banana smoothie
-paleo pancakes
-paleo BLAT
-small piece of flax seed bread and almond butter
-sausage and mustard (Although I'm not buying this kind of sausage again- it had too much sodium and I could tell even just by the way I felt afterwards)
-steamed broccoli, cauliflower, carrots

Day 18:
-strawberry/banana smoothie 
-paleo pancakes
-DELICIOUS salad from subway: spinach, grilled chicken, avocado, tomatoes, cucumbers, green bell peppers, onions, pepper, oil & vinegar. 
-raw almonds

And for dinner I made a new chicken bake recipe that was pretty easy to make and absolutely delicious. I got it from everydaypaleo.com. http://everydaypaleo.com/2011/03/09/sun-dried-tomato-chicken-bake/

I didn't have sun dried tomatoes so instead I used some left overs roasted red bell peppers soaked in olive oil (found in a jar). It's going to be even better with a full jar. Extremely juicy and tasty. For a side I used all the carrots that were sitting our fridge for a while. I washed them, skinned them, cut them in half length ways then cut those in half. I put them in a baking dish, tossed with olive oil, and seasoned with pepper, rosemary, thyme, nutmeg, oregano, garlic salt. Next time I'll probably leave out the garlic salt and oregano.

I feel like I barely have time to try out new recipes all the time and cook every day and then I look at blogs with "paleo mamas" etc. and wonder how the heck they find the time to cook paleo for their families all the time. I wonder if they pack their kids paleo lunches for school? Can you imagine as a kid coming to school with a salad or chicken breast instead of a pb & j, chips, and an apple?

  1. you are doing so well! isn't it crazy how you can already tell if your body reacts differently to too much salt?

    I agree with the paleo mamas - they are amazing and always cook delicious looking stuff. It's always about being prepared. I do best when I cook a bunch of stuff one day and then store it for the rest of the week.
