As promised ...


Ribs (smoked by my amazing hubby), mashed sweet potatoes, roasted broccoli and broiled brussel sprouts !

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 :-) 
Tuna salad with 2 crackers (easing out of carbs!),
as lettuce wraps, with 2 baby cucumbers.

 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. 

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 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!

I've been feeling particularly sassy now that I have muscles :-)
