Paleo Eats: 9/17/11

I know I sound like a broken record, but this post will be short and sweet because I’m sore and tired.

Let’s cut to the chase and get to my eats!

Before our family raced over to CrossFit Palo Alto to participate in Fight Gone Bad 6

…I quickly shredded the slow cooker Kalua pig that finished cooking when we woke up in the morning.

I also crammed my pie-hole with turkey deli meat, coconut flakes, and cherry tomatoes, and chased everything down with an espresso. 

I dropped Fitbomb and the boys at the gym…

…before I stopped at the store to grab some guacamole and lettuce to accompany my shredded swine.

I hustled back tout de suite because I was in the second heat of the day.  I got a good luck hug from Big-O…

…before I went balls to the walls.

It was a family affair because Fitbomb gave it his all  in the second to last RX’d men’s heat and the Double-O’s participated in the kids’ WOD at the very end.

Afterwards, the Paleo potluck commenced and there were yummy meats fresh from the grill…

…and a slew of other goodies.

Here’s my first plate of many…

…and Fitbomb’s lunch.

When we got home, I was exhausted and sore. The last thing I wanted to do was make dinner but I had a three-pound package of 4505 Meats’ grass fed beef grind in the fridge so I quickly made Turkish sliders (sans sauteed onions)…

…mashed a batch of guacamole, and made a quick tomato salad.

Here’s my dinner plate:

That’s a wrap! Ha! Get it?

Yes, it’s time to go to bed

It’s Friday night (or waaaaay early on Saturday morning) and I had nothing going on except for work, work, work. How come everyone else is drinking and driving and/or falling off horses? If everyone else stayed home and caught up on sleep, I’d have a nice, quiet shift at the hospital. Some people are so damn self-centered.

Er…I guess that includes me.

My first meal at work was close to the end of my shift: leftover emergency protein and veggies.

When I got off work, the family and I went to the Downtown Palo Alto Farmers’ Market to stock up on stone fruit, veggies…

…and spices.

I spent some time grilling Tammy, the friendly and spice-obsessed owner of Spice Hound, about her latest and greatest blends and exotic salts.

Stay tuned…there may be a spicy giveaway in the near future!

After our trip to the market, I bid the boys adieu before heading to bed.

Apparently, I missed out on a fun trip to San Francisco filled with spooks…

…train rides…

…and sleeping demons.

They even brought me a present!

As an additional treat, Fitbomb fed the boys dinner and let me sleep in until close to 7:00 p.m.

For dinner, I made a quick frittata

…filled with chard…

…sliced Walla Walla  onions…

…and leftover emergency protein.

I sprinkled on some Aleppo peppers…

…before finishing the egg pie under the broiler.

Here my dinner plate:

I had intended to sous vide the black cod fillets from Siren SeaSA for dinner but I didn’t have enough time. Don’t fret! I stored them in a bowl of ice in the fridge for tomorrow’s dinner.

Then, I packed my stuff for work and went to the garage to practice for Fight Gone Bad 6. Yes, that means I spent some time in the garage getting bonked in the head with a heavy medicine ball. Over and over and over again. Ouch.
