Breakfast of Champions

Standard

Just eat… Just eat what sounds good. Get out of the breakfast food, lunch food, and dinner food bubbles. One of the biggest things I have learned since eating paleo. Especially since not many “breakfast foods” are paleo.

This morning my husband was in charge of breakfast this morning. He thought strawberry spinach salad sounded good, so that’s what we had. And it was tasty.

Strawberry Spinach Salad

– olive oil
– 1/4 c sweet onion
– 5 strips bacon, chopped
– 1/4 c balsamic vinegar, we used raspberry but you could use a different flavor or plain
– 2 tbsp agave nectar
– strawberries
– eggs
– spinach

In a sauté pan, put about 1-2 tbsps olive oil.

When hot, add onion and bacon. When the bacon is cooked, add vinegar and agave. Then take it off the heat.

Throw spinach in a bowl, and put sliced strawberries on top. The dressing goes on top of that.

Then to go with our theory that iff you put eggs on it, it must be breakfast… Or something, David poached some eggs and put them on top. Yum! Like I said, breakfast of champions… At least paleo champions!

Baby Steps… Day 2

Standard

Well, we officially made it to day 2 of our whole30. It’s really easy to retry day 1 but after that you’re committed. Breakfast was Italian beef and two fried eggs. The Italian seasonings make it taste like sausage. It is very hard to find sausage without sugar snuck in, so we make our own.

Italian Beef and Veggies

– 1/2 lb ground beef
– 1 and1/2cups mushroom, I used baby portabellas
– 2 cups fresh spinach
-1/2 sweet onion
– 3/4 cup or so, steam sautéed green cabbage (leftover from weekly cook up)
– garlic powder, Italian seasoning, marjoram, salt, and pepper

Cook all up in a pan, put two fried eggs on top, I like mine runny.

We took the family grocery shopping after breakfast. Lots of fruits, veggies, and meat. Grabbed two larabars to make it through the last store. My husband made a fabulous lunch when we got home. We had pan fried ahi tuna steaks with fruit salsa on top and sautéed snap peas.

Ahi Tuna w/ Fruit Salsa

Mix chili powder, salt, and powdered ginger. Pat on to both sides of tuna. Heat a pan with coconut oil. When piping hot, put in the tuna. Cook to your liking, it will not take long. A bit rare in the idle is how we prefer it.

On top mix together:
– a cup of pineapple diced
– one mango diced
– a red pepper diced
– juice of one lime
– salt

So tasty! I wish I had gotten a picture of this one. We ate it too fast! Grocery shopping made us vey hungry, and while my husband makes good food… It might have taken forever! Lol! Nt complaining though. I love eating a meal I didn’t cook.

This evening I went to a baby shower. Social settings are the hardest when it comes to eating paleo. The main dish was chicken Alfredo pasta casserole. Smelled so good… So. I Ate fruit salad and lettuce with tomatoes on top. But I feel good still! Need to keep remember that is the reason we Are doing this…. Day 2 success!
