Paleo Eats: 1/28/11
Since this was my first day after completing the Whole30, I could’ve packed all sorts of quasi-Paleo-friendly cheats for my meals at work… but I didn’t. Instead, I continued to stick with strictly Whole30-compliant stuff ‘cause I’m going to try to indulge only when I feel like they’re really worth it.
Here’s what chomped on at work:
Lunch: A leftover box of slow-roasted pork shoulder, roasted carrots and celery root, and sauteed Southern Greens Blend.
Snack: Coconut milk topped with blueberries and a small container of macadamia nuts.
Dinner: A box of leftover sous vide organic rib eye steak and sides: garlic cauliflower mashed potatoes, nuked green beans, and mushroom and herb gravy.
When I got home, I didn’t have any meal preparation to do (for once!) so I went straight to bed after taking Big-O to school.
Upon awakening in the evening, I reheated some leftover brisket that I had stored in the freezer in anticipation of eating it post-Whole30 (there’s beer — gasp! — in the braising liquid). To accompany the tender braised beef, I roasted cubed butternut squash with avocado oil and sauteed some spinach with bacon, bacon grease, shallots, and mushrooms. Mmmm-mmm, good!
Before leaving for work, I squeezed in a quick WOD, packed up all my food and set off. Just think: While most of you are passed out in bed, I’m at work, slowly making my way through another week of graveyard shifts. Le sigh.
