Paleo Eats: 8/30/11

Pin It

Holy moly! The past 24 hours were busy, busy, busy!

I ate two meals at work and the first one was very similar to yesterday’s packed lunch: sliced cucumber, bell peppers, and organic roast beef slices topped with Aubergine dip. I also devoured some coconut butter and a square of dark chocolate. Try as I might, I can’t seem to kick my cacao addiction. 

Right before I left work, I ate a packet of Chipotle SeaSnax and the last box of emergency protein and mixed veggies.

When I got home, we shot some family portraits…

…walked Big-O to school, and hustled Lil-O to his first day of preschool (the family portraits were his first homework assignment).

After attending a MovNat Fundamentals session, I’ve consciously incorporated more lifting and carrying of asymmetric loads in my daily life. As a result, I’ve been clean and jerking my kids and carrying them on my shoulders A LOT.

Lil-O’s first day of preschool was only 75 minutes long but he had SO MUCH FUN playing and exploring!

He was sad to leave but I reassured him that the two of us would be back on Thursday for a full morning of play (I’m volunteering at the co-op every other Thursday).

Before I hit the sack, I peeked in on the short ribs that were hanging out in the SousVide Supreme…

…and then promptly conked out.

I woke up in the evening and started dinner prep in earnest because we were in a rush to attend Back To School Night at Big-O’s school.

Since the short ribs were ready to be eaten, I roasted a tray of curried cauliflower

…and threw together a quick tomato salad.

I removed the short rib packets from the water oven and put one of them on ice for later consumption…

…and charred the other pieces with my kitchen torch.

Here’s my dinner plate:

After dinner, Fitbomb and I ran to Big-O’s school to meet his teacher and mingle with the other parents. Upon our return, I did a little bit of exercise in our garage gym before heading to the hospital for my last night of work for the week. Hooray!
