Every Tuesday prior to starting my nightshifts, I’m scrambling to get all the laundry washed, grocery shopped, and food prepped for the week ahead. Today was no different, but I did stay on the straight and narrow in terms of sticking to Whole30 chow.
Guess what I had for breakfast again? A frittata. Yes, I’m that predictable. This morning’s frittata was made with three eggs, two huge handfuls of prewashed baby spinach, sautéed mushrooms and onions.
Luckily, single-serving three-egg omelets never need to be popped back under the broiler due to oozy middles. Note to self: From now on, I’m only making frittatas that serve one. Sorry, honey.
I topped it with some salsa and had me a satisfying breakfast.
At lunch, I roasted some Portobello mushrooms in the toaster oven and I topped one with leftover braised pork and homemade guacamole.
I shouldn’t buy tomatoes at the farmers’ market in the dead of winter but I couldn’t resist. They looked great, but turned out to be tasteless and mealy — no big surprise.
In the afternoon, I prepared a baking dish of World’s Best Braised Cabbage.
I LOVE this side dish and it will reheat well for dinner tomorrow. I also sous vided some boneless pork chops for 3 hours at 135 F.
These chops will be seared off later this week.
While I prepped all this food, I nibbled on carrots with sun-dried tomato pesto, a hard-boiled egg, a few mac nuts, and a couple handfuls of coconut flakes.
By the way, I listened to Robb Wolf’s podcast with Sarah Fragoso this morning, she inspired me to make our kids go Paleo. I know it won’t happen overnight, but I’m going to be persistent and stick to my guns. She talked about how her weekly go-to meal is taco night so that’s what I made for the gang here at Chez Fitbomb/Nom Nom Paleo tonight.
I’ve made seasoned ground beef many times before but tonight I added some sliced mushrooms and I used Spice Hound’s fajita and taco seasoning.
I served them with butter lettuce (my favorite type of lettuce for tacos), sliced jicama, diced tomatoes, homemade guacamole, and salsa.
My older kiddo loved the meat! I’m a proud Paleo mommy.
