Today I did almost no cooking but I was able to chow on Paleo grub because of good planning. Yes, I AM patting myself on the back.
This morning, about an hour before my CrossFit class, I ate two leftover mini frittata muffins.
I stuck them in the microwave for 30 seconds and they were warm and yummy. It sure is nice finding a new use for my cupcake tins now that I no longer make cupcakes.
After my class, I scarfed down a bunch of macadamia nuts, coconut flakes, and trail mix. As if that wasn’t enough, I also ate a glassful of coconut milk and blueberries. Before picking up Big-O from school, I sous vided a couple chicken breasts (140 F for 2 hours) and seasoned and vacuum-sealed some big-ass grass fed T-bone steaks (that I’ll sous vide tomorrow).
For lunch, we headed to the Counter and I ordered yet another burger in a bowl.
I couldn’t help shaking my head when I overheard the woman at the next table order a veggie burger in a bowl with the “lowest fat dressing on the menu.” Wake up, people!
When we got home, I tucked Little-O in for a nap and then I went to the hospital to check on my mother-in-law. She underwent a mastectomy this morning and is recovering well. We’re looking forward to taking her home tomorrow morning.
At dinnertime, I threw together a hodgepodge of leftovers and our meal was ready in five minutes. My plate was piled with crab salad on butter lettuce leaves; curried cream of broccoli soup; seasoned ground pork; and roasted curried cauliflower, Portobello mushrooms, and asparagus.
Yes, it does look like we stopped by a Vegas buffet.
