Paleo Eats: 6/6/11

Pin It

Whoa, nelly! Phil’z Coffee is STRONG stuff. I was buzzing when I started work but the java is so delicious, I didn’t mind the palpitations and jitters. Yes, I shouldn’t chug 20 ounces in less than 15 minutes before starting my nightshift but I’m an all or nothing kind of gal. 

Here’s what I ate while on my caffeine high:

My first meal was at 2:30 a.m. when I drank some soup filled with veggies, smoked ham, and chicken apple sausage.

For snack, I ate a Primal Pac. If I had to choose between a Primal Pac or a Paleo Kit, I’d eat a Paleo Kit. Why? I just think they’re a little tastier: the jerky is more flavorful and I like dried strawberries better than mango. Don’t get me wrong, both are tasty emergency snacks but my personal preference is to chow on a Paleo Kit.

I wasn’t really hungry at the end of my shift so I didn’t eat the dinner I packed. Instead, I came home and made some breakfast for dinner (inspired by Ms. Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites): pastured bacon and eggs with a side of Farmhouse Culture Smoked Jalapeno Kraut

After I ate,  I removed the pork chops out of the SousVide Supreme (hubby plunked them in the water oven before heading to his 5:00 a.m. class at CrossFit Palo Alto).

I chilled them in an ice bath for an hour before sticking them in the fridge since we’ll be eating these chops tomorrow night.

Then, I hit the sack and slept until the evening.

At 5;00 p.m., I woke up and plopped the sous-vided cowboy steaks in the water oven (130 F for about 45 minutes) to reheat.

To accompany the dino-sized chops, I broiled asparagus (drizzled with aged balsamic vinegar)…

…and eggplant slices (topped with balsamic vinegar and basil chiffonade)…

…pureed a batch of garlic cauliflower mashed potatoes.

…and nuked leftover gravy from the freezer.

Once I finished cooking the veggies, I seared and blow-torched the cowboy steaks.

And, yes, that little Lego lady is there to emphasize the ginormousness of these steaks. We split one steak between four adults!

Here’s my dinner plate:

After dinner I did some burpees and put gathered my crap for work. No coffee tonight — just some coconut flakes and coconut water before heading out the door. Two more nights of work before I’m on PTO!
