Proud Mama Moment!! My little guy has scrambled eggs, baby cucumbers, "power greens mix" (spinach, kale, chard) and a Cutie on his plate. I asked him to point to his favorite part of his lunch - he is pointing to the super greens! Doesn't hurt that we tell him greens will make him STRONG! I'll get him to show those muscles next time he eats it :-)
I am trying to ease myself out of carbs, but once in awhile, I just NEED a cracker. Obviously that will end on Sunday when we begin Whole30.
I am prepping myself for this weekend's endeavor. I ran out of half and half and instead of running out for more, I have been cutting out my daily cup (or 4) of coffee. Man, adding cardio and cutting caffeine at the same time - BRUTAL. Around 2pm, I just want to curl up in a ball and take a NAP!
An absolute FAVORITE around here. My kids DEVOUR this stuff, as do hubby and I! We had it twice in one week, it is that good! This time I made it with half ground chicken and half ground beef. Yum. I am looking forward to making it Whole30 compliant, now that I've found a good substitute for hoisen (recipe in a paleo book!), soy sauce (coconut aminos) and the spice mix!
|Stir fry. LOADS of veggies, amazing steak marinated in 5 spice seasoning.|
|My typical lunch and/or breakfast: 2 whole eggs, 2 egg whites, some kind of fruit (this is a Cara Cara orange, yum!) and "super greens" mix from Costco.|
|I GET CARDIO THIS WEEK!|
|I've been feeling particularly sassy now that I have muscles :-)|
