Days 20-23

It's too far back to remember everything I ate the past few days but I want to tell you about some yummy new things I've tried.

I didn't have any spaghetti squash so I used some fresh zucchini, sauteed it in coconut oil and made meat sauce from the paleo spaghetti recipe. I enjoyed it with some flax seed/coconut bread. I have tons of leftover meat sauce so I've been putting that over some steamed broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower. I buy this huge thing of frozen veggies mix from walmart (gasp!) and it lasts forever. I put a bowl full of veggies with some water and heat it in the microwave for almost 3 minutes, then drain it, and it's perfect. I usually have frozen veggies and fresh veggies on hand.

After my workout today (by the way it was an intense workout- 50 lengths in the pool, weights, abs, stretching. And I didn't plan on going to the gym today!) I went to Food Lion to get some supplies and decided to make this DELICIOUS omelet! 

Alsie's Sun Dried Tomato N' Spinach Omelet

-2 fresh eggs
-spinach (frozen or fresh)
-green or red bell pepper
-turkey sausage (cooked. I buy mine pre-cooked so I just had to microwave it)
-sun dried tomatoes soaked in olive oil drained and cut up
-coconut oil
*I usually eye my ingredients and don't measure them too much. Sometimes it's way more veggies than eggs or vis versa but always good! Just use what you like.

-Saute the bell peppers in coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat with coconut oil. If your spinach is frozen also saute that. If your spinach isn't frozen, wait until the bell peppers are done. If you like crispier bell peppers don't saute them for too long.
-Add the sun dried tomatoes and turkey sausage. 
-Turn your heat down to low-medium for the eggs.
-Make sure your veggies and sausage are even on the pan.
-In a separate bowl, whisk the 2 eggs. Pour the eggs over your veggie mixture in the frying pan. Try to get the eggs to cover all the veggies.
-Don't touch the omelet for a few minutes. Remember slow cooking eggs is the way to go unless you want hard, rubbery eggs! 
-If you can flip it, by all means do. I can never do that so I check to make sure it's cooked enough to fold in half then wait again for another couple minutes. 

I enjoyed mine with a strawberry, blueberry, almond butter smoothie. It was too good and very filling! 

I've been enjoying this diet and trying new things even though it's still a challenge. It's working and I feel really good. I don't feel bloated, I have more energy and I can see a difference. 


  1. yey! haha your last line sounded like an infomercial....I love it =) and eating right/ living a disciplined life will always be a challenge. If it wasn't, everyone would do it.

  2. doesn't that omelet look YUM. you have to try it.
