Hallelujah! The Double-Os were no longer feverish this morning but I kept them home because their toots were still kinda juicy. If you’re wondering what to feed your kids (or yourself) when your GI tract is rumbly, check out this post on Mark’s Daily Apple.
For breakfast, I ate a tuna and avocado “sandwich” that I tucked in a curry-flavored Pure Wrap.
At lunchtime, I quickly defrosted some frozen shrimp under running water. I stir-fried broccoli florets and the chopped shrimp with coconut aminos, Red Boat Fish Sauce, and Adobo seasoning.
It took about 5 minutes to make and the same amount of time to gobble up.
By the time dinner rolled around, the Double-Os were hangry. Their appetites had returned with a vengeance and they were desperate to eat something besides bone broth and scrambled eggs.
Big-O insisted that we cook meatballs from Matt & Stacy’s new cookbook, Eat Like A Dinosaur…
…and bake french fries (recipe from America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook).
Before you get your loin cloth in a twist about white potatoes not being Paleo, read this thoughtful post written by Bill.
As an additional veggie side, I stir-fried napa cabbage and onions with a splash of bone broth, coconut aminos, and Red Boat Fish Sauce.
Yes, I made a second pot of meaty pressure cooker bone broth because the whole family is downing it like water.
Here’s my dinner plate:
The meatballs were a big hit with my ravenous kiddos.
Definitely buy Eat Like A Dinosaur for your family — the recipes are simple yet delicious and your kids will lurve it.
The boys were still hungry after the meat and potatoes so I fried up some Paleo-friendly tortillas that George shared with us at PaleoFX. They were handmade by a local Texan named Veronica Garza and I’m heartbroken they aren’t offered locally.
We ended our day of eats with a big bowl of strawberries.
I’m so happy my boys are feeling better — just in time for me to return to nightshifts mañana. I can’t believe my three weeks of vacation are OVER.
