Tonight’s my hump day so I only have three more nights to work after tonight. Slowly but surely I’m eeking through this workweek. What’d I pack for my meals? I thought you’d never ask!
Here’s what I gorged on from midnight to midnight:
The first snack of the night was a can of sardines.
This imported brand has fancy packaging but my fishies had a few too many scales on them. Scales make me angry.
My “lunch” box was filled with leftover tandoori chicken, sauteed spinach and bacon, and winter squash puree.
To settle my grumbly stomach, I snacked on some macadamia nuts and coconut flakes at 4:00 a.m.
My last meal at work was a box of leftover kebabs and nuked green beans.
You know how there are some leftovers you look forward to eating again? Charred meats make me smile.
After work, I came home and hung with my family. An hour later, I met up at the Mountain View Farmer’s Market with my new CrossFit buddy, Erin. Even though I picked up my vegetable CSA box yesterday, I still bought a ton of produce and a couple boneless pork roasts to boot. Once you go Paleo, you can never have too many veggies and meat. Plus, my hubby set up our new chest freezer so I’ll be hoarding animal parts from here on out.
After snoozing the afternoon away, I woke up and made some chow for the family. I know it seems like I love to cook but sometimes it’s a real pain in the ass getting a Paleo meal on the table. Luckily, tonight’s dinner required minimal prep work and still turned out tasty. I didn’t even take out a knife and cutting board to chop stuff up. And it was on the table after only 40 minutes of me slowly puttering around the kitchen. Really.
I grilled up some Tabil-seasoned grass fed rib eye steaks…
…Tabil-seasoned sauteed shrimp…
…and roasted broccoli.
