On-the-go mug of kale and chicken sausages sautéed in bacon fat along with some coffee with vanilla coconut cream. 😋


Kale salad with EVOO, sliced almonds, and carnitas. YUM!


Roasted chicken breast (bone-in and with crispy skin) with green beans and broccoli drizzled with EVOO and sliced almonds.


Tough SWOD at Crossfit tonight and I’m exhausted, but feel accomplished. Going to bed early tonight.

11 Feb

Lots of small blisters on my hands after today’s CWOD at Crossfit tonight. Feels good.

Dinner was organic kale, broccoli, some green onion, tomato, EVOO, and some pork belly I got at Trader Joe’s along with some coconut water.


02.11.2014 | Breakfast

11 Feb

Made a big breakfast this morning for my ride to work: Paleo-friendly chicken sausage, ground turkey patty, 2 eggs, and some brussel sprouts all sautéed in coconut oil.

This was my small pan by the way 😉

I’ve completed my Tier classes at Crossfit, so my goal is to workout according to the typical schedule (On: Mon – Wed; Fri – Sat. Rest: Thur; Sun). Trying to eat more protein, because I always seem a little lower than I should be. Also need to cut back on the drinks on the weekend. 😣

Day 15: Halfway Through, I’m Glowing

13 Nov

My skin is looking incredible the last few days. Gotten a lot of compliments that I’m glowing. I know I’m not pregnant, so cleaning up the diet with real, unprocessed foods must be the contributing factor.

Some foods from the last several days.

Baked chicken breast and creamed spinach. This was the first time cooking chicken breast this way. I brined it for 3 hours, coated it with seasoning, and then baked it. So moist. The chicken recipe was from my Well Fed cookbook and the recipe can also be found here. I highly recommend it! The creamed spinach was based on a recipe I saw in the Paleo Comfort Foods cookbook. Super easy and really tasty (I love spinach).

I made chili this weekend in the crockpot, based on this recipe by Paleo Newbie. The ground beef is from the eighth of a cow I bought. Grass-fed and organic and delicious. Topped it with half an avocado and had an apple on the side.


Chili with Avocado + Apple


I also bought some ling cod from a friend after a fishing trip he took. Baked ling cod and steamed green beans with extra virgin olive oil and almonds.


Ling Cod + Green Beans


I was on a mission this past weekend to bake with some pumpkin puree. I made these Bacon/Chive/Apple/Pumpkin Coconut Flour Biscuits courtesy of The Urban Poser. I think this is the first recipe I’ve followed using coconut flour that was successful.


Bacon/Chive/Apple/Pumpkin Coconut Flour Biscuits

I made some Pumpkin Cookies from Multiply Delicious ‘ site. I didn’t have a banana, so used dates I ran through the food processor. These didn’t hold as well as I’d wanted, but they’re really tasty. I put a little almond butter and coconut cream on one and it was heavenly!

I also made some Pumpkin Raisin Bread, but I can’t find the recipe again. Shoot! There are tons out there though. So good for breakfast. I didn’t use much honey in this to sweeten because the raisins added enough.

Day 8: Foods

6 Nov


Quickly threw some cut up spicy Italian chicken sausage, kale, and grape tomatoes in a mug to eat on my way to work. 


Chicken Sausage, Kale, Grape Tomatoes


Some of my leftover stuffed bell pepper and a salad of greens, roasted chicken, and mushrooms. 


Stuffed Bell Pepper and Salad

Day 7: Starting the Routine

5 Nov

First time back to the gym today after my third hernia surgery. So excited to get back to a routine. 


I went to El Gaucho last Saturday (my first time) and had left overs, so I finished those. Filet mignon, broccoli, and asparagus (no picture). 


Chicken Pad Thai. Seriously this recipe is so good and I’ve made it several times. I use my veggie spiral slicer to make “zoodles” (or zucchini noodles). Don’t even miss the rice noodles. 


Chicken Pad Thai


Roasted chicken, mashed yams, and green beans. 


Roasted Chicken, Mashed Yams, Green Beans
