Paleo Eats: 5/1/11

Here’s a quick recap of my eats & kitchen adventures today:

The kids spent the night at my parents and instead of sleeping in, I decided to attack Melissa Joulwan’s Birthday WOD. She’s such a beast. Who else creates her own birthday WOD that includes — among plenty of other things — 43 burpees? If it was my birthday, I’d take the day off. Happy Birthday, Melicious!

Breakfast/Post workout meal: Sous vide chicken breast and baked yam.

After breakfast, hubs and I ventured over to the Mountain View Farmers’ Market and leisurely perused the different stands. I love my kids, but shopping with them is like herding feral cats. It was nice to get a chance to just stroll.

Lunch: A combination plate of koobideh and joojeh (chicken thigh) at Chelokababi. I subbed out the rice with a salad. Gossiping and chowing on grilled meat sticks with girlfriends makes this cavegirl very happy.

Meal prep for the upcoming week: I sous vided a couple of grass fed rib eye steaks that I stuck in the freezer and I prepared a pot of Paleo Bo Kho (Vietnamese stew with beef brisket, tomato, star anise, and lemongrass). I’ll post that recipe shortly — along with details about the Red Boat fish sauce giveaway. The Red Boat made the stew taste YUMMERIFIC. 

Dinner: I threw together another batch of simple crab salad and broiled some asparagus in the toaster oven. I added chopped cucumbers and sliced avocado to our plates, so dinner was essentially a big bowl of deconstructed California roll — with only the good (read: Paleo) parts.

Buenas noches!
