Paleo Eats: 12/26/11

More important than Boxing Day or the start of Kwanzaa, today is Lil-O’s birthday!

I can’t believe my mischievous little boy is already four years old. It feels like just yesterday when he was yanked out of my uterus…

For breakfast, I slurped down a bowl of hearty beef and root vegetable soup before heading to CrossFit Palo Alto for the women’s class.

There were only two of us in class today, so K and I got lots of personal attention from Coach Trish. Plus, it was exciting to witness K hit a deadlift PR at 205#. Very inspiring.

After restocking on protein and produce at Trader Joe’s, I came home and did some cooking. I roasted an eggplant and some garlic cloves…

….to make eggplant caviar…

…and blended up some magic powder (a.k.a. porcini seasoning salt) for my spice rack.

By lunchtime, I was too lazy to make anything new. I ended up eating the eggplant caviar with some leftover chili lime chicken wings.

In the afternoon, Fitbomb and I spent one-on-one time with the boys. While Fitbomb played Ninjago with Lil-O, I accompanied Big-O to the park where he schooled me on how to properly perform toes-to-bar and knees-to-elbows.

Big-O: “Mommy, you just throw your feet up to the bar like this. How come you can’t do it?”

Me: *shrug*

The rest of our day was spent doing the bidding of the birthday boy. As a result, we ate an early dinner at The Counter. I had a burger in a bowl with greens, unripe tomatoes, and hard-boiled eggs.

Then, we went to the theater to watch The Adventures of Tintin with the kids. 

Happy birthday, my little man!
